Design et al Winter Edition

Design et al

May, 2007

“Trying to convince the client top go with black furniture initially was not easy” Chris told me. “When they looked at the design boards and saw the predominately grey tones in some areas I don’t think that they could envisage how the black was going to work”.

Designer Chris Dezille of London based design company Honky, was given a blank canvas when appointed by property developer St James to work on Wycombe House, a period style home valued at £15million. “I was fortunate to have a free reign”, Chris explained. “And my client had a clear vision, which made things easier”. The home has the benefit of grand proportions and dimensions and has been built to the specification of a period townhouse, without the complications and problems for the designer associated with refurbishments of homes of a certain age.

The scheme is classically inspired throughout but has been interpreted in a contemporary way. The result is timeless elegance for a modern era.
