Our World / Medina Lounge
A Collaboration between Arteriors Home and Hill House Interiors
Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour
Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour (DCCH), being the largest of its kind in Europe, is recognised as the place for creative excellence. DCCH, based in London, is a flourishing platform for an extremely vibrant sector, creatively and commercially. Every year it hosts Focus and London Design Week, two events not to be missed in the interior design and interior international design calendar. Unseen anywhere else, these occasions witness a vibrant fusion of immersive experiences, collection launches, bespoke installations, as well as food and drink initiatives. At its core is an inclusive ethos of exchanging ideas, generating a deeper understanding of design through its displays. Curated spaces within its renowned global showrooms are some of the highlights of Focus/19: they boast the new season’s collections, seen through the eyes of leading interior designers.
Hill House Interiors collaborates with Arteriors Home
Consequently, our global luxury interior design practice based in Weybridge, Surrey is honoured to have partnered with Arteriors Home as part of their ongoing Designer Collaboration Series. Launching at Focus Design Week this September' 19, we unveiled the Medina Lounge. Our unique space, with a distinct style and global appeal, is on display for 6 months at Arteriors Home first International Showroom location at DCCH. Here we showcase beautiful and specially selected Arteriors products from their Summer 2019 range.
Styled as a glamorous bar area with a tented ceiling, our scheme was influenced by our many visits to the Middle East and Marrakech. A fusion of rich spice tones, delicate beading, embroidery, and handcrafted pieces decorate the space. The showroom includes new additions to Arteriors Home portfolio such as the vellum-fronted Salotto Cabinet by Frank Ponterio, as well as best-selling classics like the curvy 'Turner' sofa. Alongside the Arteriors Home products, we've creatively collaborated with some of the top fabric, trimming, rug suppliers, couture curtain makers and bespoke cabinetry who reside in the innovative DCCH space to complement the Arteriors Home products. This resulted in an enticing visual Aladdin’s cave display.
At the heart of an international design community, DCCH is setting global trends. We believe our overall scheme is unmistakably trendsetting and transitional. The array of metal fretwork panelling displays a more contemporary take on the style. The lighting reflects the same combination of traditional and modern elements side by side. Golden lanterns craft a warm glow throughout that reflects on the backlit ammonite bar top - a perfect jewelled combination.
We're proud to have revealed our creative flair and eclectic influence in the Medina Lounge, whilst presenting Arteriors Home collection in a diverse yet inspirational manner. We emanated fresh approaches to colour, shape, and pattern to channel the spirit of individuality that is on the rise at DCCH. To transmute an idea into reality takes imagination, an understanding of materials, respect for artisan methods and an eye for innovation. Therefore, we chose to fashion the Arteriors collection as a stylish sanctuary in which to relax and recharge. This meant our design can easily be transferred into a home or hospitality setting. As a designer, a theme is a focal point, allowing for a great story to sell the pieces on display. It gives the customer imagination to be able to place these pieces in their very own living environment. These creative spaces are a great opportunity to see impeccable finishes up close, seek out expertise in person and witness where creativity and craftsmanship meet.
