To create an atmosphere of sophistication inspired by the 50’s, nothing better than Miles table lamp by DelightFULL. With a complexity not visible at ﬁrst sight, like the eye catcher gold plated frame and the double white shade, it casts a smooth light that will surely make you feel in a “Kind of Blue” mood. You can see this lamp live at our Covet London Showroom, book your visit here!
The layout and exterior were architected by Pilbrow and Partners, while the interiors were the development’s responsibility of Nina Norden from Conrad and Partners.
The Cereal-designed apartment, named Abode, functions as a creative alternative to the traditional show flat. “For us, the perfect solution was a partnership with our friends at Cereal Magazine,” said the owner and director of Aucoot. “When we approached Rich (Cereal’s creative director) and Rosa (its editor) they jumped at the opportunity.”
Spread over two floors, the penthouse includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a waterside terrace offer up views of the city’s skyline and boats on the River Thames.
“We wanted our guests and readers to visit the apartment and recognize that they were in a Cereal space,” said Cereal editor Rosa Park. “Having said that, we also wanted to have an element of surprise – even if it means having just a paint colour that maybe you wouldn’t expect us to go for, or a piece of furniture that is slightly more eccentric and has a bit more character than the pared-back, elegant stuff we usually opt for.”
We are surrendered by this place! It really catches the Cereal Magazine spirit.
