When it came to lighting up Beechmont House, EAB Homes £6.5M residential gem in Beaconsfield, our brief was to produce lamps with traditional influences, yet focus on contemporary style. The property effortlessly marries contemporary living with state-of-the-art technology, so it was important to ensure this core relationship continued through every facet of design. This meant only luxury cordless lamps would do.
A key objective was use lamps that could be moved between rooms, giving the owner the ability to create a fresh look whenever they chose, or to provide additional ambiance in key areas when entertaining. A good example of this was creating an oversized Amber lamp for use in the reception hall, that could also be used in the beautiful kitchen, or outdoors to stage an alfresco meal.
One of the most impressive features of Beechmont is the 1,300 ft² lavish Master Suite with separate his and hers dressing areas and en suite bath and shower rooms. In the lady’s bathroom a soft Aubergine colour was used to match the décor and linen. In his dressing room a masculine Charcoal lamp takes pride of place on an imposing table and seating area at the centre of the room. Both these lamps could easily be used in the main reception rooms, or in the garden.
The cinema room called for something decadent, so we chose a cordless lamp with an olive glass body, placed upon a brass base, then paired the piece with a bottle green silk lampshade, the inside of the shade was finished with a Pistachio silk.
The formal lounge demanded something unique. The challenge was to create a striking statement lamp with a slender body which didn’t obscure peoples view of each other. The Alexander Joseph design team created a glass lamp that colour matched the coffee table and complimented the soft furnishings, right down to the inlayed marquetry on the chrome lamp sconce.
Ceramic cordless lamps were used throughout the house to add warmth to functional areas such as the coffee bar within the master suite.
Surely by now everyone has heard of Sandbanks. The uber chic beach peninsular in Poole, Dorset which according to ITV, BBC and The Times is the fourth most expensive place on earth to buy property?
The penthouse at the Ace luxury development created by West Coast Developments is the largest apartment in the sought after BH13 postcode. With an asking price of £5M, new owners will benefit from 360° views from the balconies and the 4,000 ft² roof terrace, complete with a ten-person hot tub.
Alexander Joseph used a selection of luxury cordless lamps from their permanent range to dress the penthouse for sale. Very much an FF&E project; larger lamps were required to accentuate the scale of the room sizes. Soft glass tones were used to absorb or reflect the extraordinary light from the glass floor to ceiling windows and doors.
Creating an ‘adult’ space was at the centre of the brief, this meant ensuring all the fixtures and fittings such as lamp bases matched the aesthetic of individual rooms. The family study which was created as a tranquil haven required jet Black bases and fittings. In the master office a Blue Blenheim lamp on a brass base was chosen to make the most of the light.
In the Kitchen a Ruby Red cordless lamp sitting on a Brass base was chosen to compliment the granite work surfaces and the handmade accessories. On the occasional table leading to the roof terrace a Blue Windsor lamp lays waiting for the owner to use outside, perhaps enjoying the view with a glass of wine at sunset.
