With Art Deco influence the two front lounges enjoy a graceful curved façade and this flows through the furnishings and design, including the stunning custom made carpet. Flanked by park and wildlife reserve and with internal landscaped gardens the greenery of the surrounds adds further appeal to the space. The standard comment from visitors is that they would like to live there and in that comment the design team have succeeded in their goal of creating a space that everyone would want to call home.
Furniture was provided in all areas of the residence. Custom designed pieces included banquettes in the dining, café and billiards room, marble inlaid dining tables, wall mounted headboards with integrated switch panels and foot spa furnishings. At the client’s request the statement foyer table’s claw feet were silver gilt and metal accent legs were sourced for the lounges. Throughout the process HFA worked closely with the client assisting with design solutions and utilizing the benefits of local manufacture, this ensured that the end result reflected and exceeded the design brief.
Whilst the build required many custom designed pieces many standard range pieces were also used. Henley couches and armchairs with metal legs featured in the lounges and bedrooms as well as Queenscliff wing chairs. Vere armchairs were used for the residents activity space and over bed tables were made in the same finish as the bedroom joinery. The Maya armchair was used throughout, as a desk chair in the bedrooms and also throughout the office areas where meeting tables were fitted with power and data.
The supply and installation of the furniture went seamlessly. There was close liaison with the in house builders with the bedheads fitting into alcoves of roughly 16 different widths and the inset switch panels being required ahead of time for electrical fit out. At times when due to conflicting projects the client was not present HFA coordinated on their behalf.
With our policy of single contact from start to completion, Arcare’s HFA contact was onsite and assisting throughout the delivery.
