Mayfair Home Feat. Art deco and Mid-century Accents

Step into a stunning London home crafted by Studio Child, a space that seamlessly blends mid-century modern furniture with a layout reminiscent of the famed residence of fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent. This interior is meticulously designed to cater to dining, entertaining, and festivities, featuring a spacious lounge inspired by the grand salon of Saint Laurent`s Parisian home. Much like the designer showcased his artwork, the Mayfair house proudly displays furniture conceived by iconic mid-century modern designers.

In an interview with Dezeen, Studio Child`s designers, Che Huang and Alexy Kos, emphasized the collaborative nature of the project. They highlighted the active involvement of the client, allowing the space to reflect their personality and interests, spanning art, design, literature, and travel. Drawing inspiration from Saint Laurent`s eclectic salon, which features a harmonious blend of design objects and art pieces from various eras and locales, the Mayfair residence embodies a highly personalized and authentic curation.

According to child studio, this project represents an authentic design language, balancing art deco references with the modernism of the 1960s and 1970s (Deezen, 2023).

The entire space exudes charm with vintage furniture carefully curated to infuse a sense of fun and daring into the design. Studio Child incorporated bespoke furniture alongside vintage pieces to ensure a cohesive interior that meets all functional requirements. A standout feature in the lounge is the fully functional half-moon plaster fireplace, a custom creation by Studio Child. Complemented by ornate urns and Art Deco floor lamps, this fireplace adds a sense of scale and permanence to the space, anchoring the room with its distinctive presence. Strategic positioning of the fireplace below a skylight allows for the play of natural light throughout the day, creating soft nuances and enhancing the cozy atmosphere of the environment. This thoughtful design detail adds an element of warmth and comfort to the Mayfair house, making it a truly inviting retreat.

In the dining area, a striking display of dark wood shelves adorned with both functional and decorative items surrounds a circular wooden table paired with dining chairs designed by the renowned French architect Charlotte Perriand. According to the designers at Studio Child, speaking to Dezeen, the room`s color palette draws inspiration from the modernist Villa Muller by Adolf Loos, now a museum in Prague, Czechia. The judicious combination of materials such as wood, marble, and plaster imbues the space with sophistication while maintaining a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The entire project was conceived to evolve. Designed to be a dynamic interior, the spaces are poised to embrace new pieces of art and relics acquired by the owners during their travels, ensuring a continual evolution and personalization of the environment.
