Working closely with Interior Designer Tracy Hain of www.beauxideal.com Andrea Felice was task to design several key pieces of furniture for the City Financial Reception in London - The Reception desk, Awards Display Cabinet and an Umbrella Stand. It was important that the finishes worked in perfectly with the other designer pieces selected. These pieces were all crafted by AF Designs in their London workshop.
The Reception Desk was crafted from Oak which had a specialist dark stain applied. The desk was top with a high grade desktop Linoleum which was mitred at at 45% angle to wrap around the front. The desk was detailed with a brass inlay which also wrapped around the front of the desk.
The Awards Cabinet (which was very hard to photograph) was designed to house the numbers awards that City Financial had received for their work. It feature an integrated LED lighting system and bottom storage drawers. The cabinet was detailed with brass inlays matching those of the desk, and hand crafted (by AFD) drawer handles.
