Arteriors X Hill House Interiors
Posted on September 23 2019
Arteriors partner with Hill House Interiors to launch 'The Medina Lounge' during the Focus/19 event at the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour.
Launching at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour to coincide with the 2019 edition of London Design Festival, Arteriors partners with luxury interior designers 'Hill House' to transform part of the showroom into 'The Medina Lounge' - a Moroccan themed bar and lounge space that allows the brand to host events, exhibit its impressive collections of lighting, furniture and accessory designs as well as providing a retreat for visitors to sit back, relax and discuss luxury design with the team.
Drawing inspiration from their recent travels to Marrakech, Directors Helen Bygraves and Jenny Weiss transform the Arteriors showroom, pairing rich spice hues with delicate beading, intricate embroidery and beautiful handcrafted furniture design. Creating a slice of Moroccan heaven in the heart of the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, every detail has been carefully considered, from the impressive tented ceiling (GP & J Baker) that softens the interior and absorbs sound to the impressive selection of Arteriors lighting, furniture and accessory designs.
Personal favourites and stand-out designs of the Medina Lounge include the centrepiece 'Jalen' two-tier chandelier at the very centre of the lounge design consisting of sixteen contemporary brass shades, set against beautiful bronze arms. The 'Alek' cocktail table attracted much attention with its impressive faux quill detail surrounding the edge of the table, complemented by a bamboo-like motif that elegantly finishes the legs and frame of this wonderful black oak design. One of the most intriguing pieces is the 'Strata' lounge chair with what appears to be a drapery of leather straps adorning the arms and back of the chair. These straps are actually rattan strips, cut and looped to create an impressive form that has been finished in a deep graphite black colourway.
The Arteriors and Hill House event also marked the launch of the Arabian Dawn + Dusk candle collection, the third generation duo scents by Martyn White Designs. In a similar fashion, the candles were inspired by travels, capturing the intertwining fragrances of an Arabian Day. The new collection will scent the Arteriors showroom, welcoming visitors with their floral and oud fragrances.
The Arteriors showroom is located on the third-floor of Design Centre East, Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. Click to view the official Arteriors website to discover their latest collections and for contact information and opening details.
