This is the study space of the penthouse show suite of the flagship Marketing Pavilion at Greenwich Peninsula, the pilot project of the ELLE Decoration Style Consultancy. This is where we imagined prospective homeowners sitting to discuss the specifics of their potential new property, so we created a space that was relaxed and comfortable.
Two ‘Gaston’ lounge chairs by Vincent Van Duysen for Poliform sit opposite a vintage ‘Forum’ sofa, originally designed by Robin Day in 1964. The ‘Caulfield’ smoke-grey glass-topped coffee table is by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti, and a ‘Fulcrum’ brass chandelier by Lee Broom hangs overhead. Underfoot is a real treat for the toes and art for the floor in the form of the ‘Firuzabad’ wool/silk rug in ‘Rame’ from Golran’s exquisite ‘Memories’ collection, conceived by artist Isabella Sodi. The black lacquered five-drawer desk is from Orchid, and on it sits a Fornasetti ceramic fragrance diffuser, a brass desk clock designed by George Nelson in 1947 for Vitra, and additional brass accessories from Native & Co. In the background, the walls are covered with Anaglypta’s ‘Turner Tile’ wallpaper and painted in ‘Hardwick White’ Estate Emulsion from Farrow & Ball, a beautiful greeney grey that changes like water in the light.
