Made to entertain
Working with a long-time collaborator of ours, Gina Brennan, we created two bespoke pieces of furniture for a contemporary project in Notting Hill. The scheme was cleverly designed to complement the owners' characterful collection of objects, particularly African furniture and art. Gina considered their collection in her scheme, painting the walls white throughout, with earthy green and beige accents in the fabric. Sourcing furniture that would create a contemporary, rustic look.
Being the founders of West London cafe, Farm Girl, entertaining and sharing food figures large in the lives of Rose Mann and Anthony Hood.
“We entertain here a lot,” says Rose. "Ten to twelve people can fit around the table, and in winter, we light the fire and roast a chicken or make a big curry.”
The waney edged table that we made is a beautifully simple yet arresting piece that heroes an incredible single plank of oak, and the minimalist kitchen island was an original design by Matthew Cox, made in oak with a stone top.
Thanks to Gina and House & Garden for the photographs, more of which can be seen here.
