Daval, award-winning designer and manufacturer of British-made quality fitted furniture is proud to present its texture-rich furniture collection Langham, seen here in Smoked Oak warm wood finish combined with Langham Beige Silk, a soft linen effect with naturally fibrous surface texture.
Designed by family-run fitted furniture specialists, George Barnett, the Langham furniture collection by Daval has been transformed into a custom dressing room and home office for leading interior designer, Deborah Goody, at her Shenfield home in South Essex.
James Bodsworth, Design Director at Daval says, “We love seeing local businesses supporting each other and buying British so we are over the moon to see such a creative use of space in Deborah’s home as part of her renovations in her 1950s semi-detached property. Our design philosophy centres on the fact that every home is a personal and individual place which is why our bespoke furniture collections are designed to be versatile and extremely lifestyle-friendly from inception. As more and more professional couples are embracing the new opportunities that remote working presents, bringing extra value to the master bedroom with dressing room and home office solutions is gaining traction in 2023-4. In fact, we are finding that this desire for a more flexible and sustainable lifestyle goes hand in hand with an appreciation of furniture from renewable sources which is made-to-measure and made in Britain.”
Deborah wanted to transform the space above her garage from two small rooms into one long space, complete with a half-vaulted ceiling when a new roof was installed. She explains “The obvious use of this space was for our dressing room, but we also needed to combine the practicality of having a home office. It really has turned out to be my dressing room of dreams! I was even able to find a special place to house my wedding shoes.”
The design brief was all about celebrating and enabling creativity – both in terms of Deborah’s business and her passion for fashion – so the classic wood effect of Smoked Oak with a must- have linen-effect finish in Beige Silk was the ideal combination for a deluxe, neutral space. In addition, the dressing room/home office is fully on board with this year’s trend for sophisticated, tailored furniture solutions which optimise indulgence and self-care. The floor-to-ceiling cabinetry comprises wardrobes, deep drawers, and an overhead cupboard so Deborah and her husband can store clothes, luggage and business essentials quickly and easily.
Simon Bodsworth, Managing Director at Daval says, “Attention to detail is everything – especially in a dual-purpose room – which is why our storage personalisation options are limitless and range from premium leather drawer inserts for watches, drawer dividers for ties and scarves and smoked glass display shelves to highlight keepsakes and wedding photos. The desk area is designed with extra deep drawers so Deborah can keep her paperwork and projects in order and have enough space to work on her laptop as and when required.”
Inspired by the plush style and timeless charm of the iconic Langham hotel, Langham fitted cabinetry delivers the ultimate in bedroom and home office luxury for the discerning homeowner and is priced from £11,000+vat.
