Today we are going to show a stunning mid-century modern flat with unique lighting designs and interior design to die for. The views are spectacular are overwhelming and have completely conquered our heart. Curious? Keep scrolling and get inspired!
Responding to the challenge of turning a ‘corporate-looking’ flat in the Barbican into a home with a mid-century vibe and a welcoming atmosphere for her clients, Maria Speake used reclaimed materials to create a warm interior compatible with the Brutalist architecture.
Lee standing lamp would look perfect in this flat. With a mid-century design, this mid-century floor lamp is the ideal corner piece for a demanding setting.
Maria knew instantly that she wanted to work with them. ‘For me, one factor is the building but the other is the people and how you are going to relate to them,’ she says.
The owners gave Maria a detailed, written brief describing the atmosphere they wanted and what they liked doing, such as reading and entertaining. Warmth was the key element, and they felt the mahogany frames of the windows should form a starting point.
All the pieces were scrubbed and individually hand-sanded so that they reflect light in different ways. The result is incredible!
The owners immediately liked the idea of using reclaimed materials. As well as the parquet, all new joinery, including the discreet wall-hung television unit, the bathroom paneling and the 10-seater dining room table, are made from old laboratory worktops; the darkness of the wood echoes that of the window frames.
Today, as soon as you enter this flat, with its two bedrooms off to the left and the living areas to the right, the atmosphere is one of enveloping coziness and delightful details and textures.
The furniture is mostly mid-century Italian; its elegant shapes add femininity and soften any harshness, and as the wife is Italian, it seemed fitting.
‘We like to see it as the transformation of a Belvedere into a home,’ say the thrilled owners. But not only is it now a home, it is almost a work of art; such is the attention to detail and balance of colors, texture, and shapes.
