When your sofa is full up the obvious place to put your spare cushions is in that bath tub in the corner of your lounge. We have several new Spring 2015 collections waiting to hit the sewing machines of London.

Great Faux Leather Upholstery from Area Sq in this great commercial office space. Beige faux leather such as this might seem too-light a colour choice. However faux leather is exceptionally hard wearing and highly suited to contract environments such as this. Many KOTHEA faux leathers have a Martindale rub test exceeding 100,000 rubs (some over 200, 000) – so very durable products that will last the test of time if suitably cared for and upholstered. ‘Real’ leather will be MUCH more of a problematic option both in terms of the initial cost AND the cost of care and maintenance.

Hands up who thinks that the neighbours might mind if I did my extension like this? Funnily enough his was designed by MAD Architects – I kid you not !

I suspect the concept was thought of by the intern who at the time was stacking dishes prior to completing the latest career-worthy task aka washing the dishes after the Friday creative meeting’s meal. Of course we have no idea who the intern was as interns never get the credit for anything (I imagine).

Another no-fabrics-on-display image 🙁 . This time a great pool setting by April Hamilton. To be practical a pool has to be large, heavy and rectangular which poses significant issues for an interior designer.

1508 London have designed this amazing townhouse. If you can’t go up, out or back then where do you go? – was the title of this post. 1508 London clearly know where the answer lies for the future..you go down and down again. Basement conversion in London were de-rigeur 15-20 years ago in the Clapham environs (now spreading to the home counties). But when you have yet another  multi-hundred thousand bonus (or more) you can’t quite afford to move house AND to get that much bigger a house. So you go down two floors. I suspect that your rear has to face the right way as far as sunlight goes and you probably need very understanding neighbours whose children do not play football. Once that ball comes over the fence, there’s no way it is possible to throw it back 🙂

Gold and mirrors from 1508 design. Great wall textures, colour scheme and details. The photographer has chosen what appears to be an expansive view of the appartment, it would be interesting to explore this space from many angles. It is probably an unusually shaped room, beautifully designed.

Anouska Hempel hallway – superb architecture and interior design. We normally present images with a significant fabric content and, yes, there is some present here but along with bathrooms and kitchens this is an area of a house often devoid of fabric. Anyway we love the architectural lines of the stairwell as well as the juxtaposition of that with the bannister design. Colours are perfect and the curves flow beautifully everywhere – from the stairs to the mirror to the log basket.
