A custom-colored rug from the Rug Company is the focal point for the seating arrangement in the living space. Bespoke cabinetry upholstered in a satin-finished faux leather houses the television and conceals storage. A Carrara marble coffee table provides contrast to the soft fabrics and furnishings.

In the dining area is Black & Key’s
Madison Dining Table, an elegant stained walnut dining table with liquid metal top. A custom-made antiqued mirrored wall with bevelled sections visually enlarges the space and enhances its light. Beautiful mirror and wall lights by Villiers create further focal points. The aubergine tones of the upholstery are picked up in the delicate silk shades of the Porta Romana pendant lamp.
