Design Unleashed

  • Designer Kimberley Seldon placed an enormous ancient mill stone from Italy dead centre and aligned it with the front door, immediately creating a sense of order in the space.
  • Custom arm chairs flank a metal drum which acts as a coffee table, providing a perfect perch for quiet contemplation.
  • It's not uncommon to find large columns poorly placed in new condos but again, it makes decorating a wee bit more challenging. To give the column a sense of purpose Kimberley placed a tall wooden Buddha in front of the structural feature.
  • The comfy grey sectional (Jamie Alexander) surrounds a round wood coffee table from West Elm. Colourful salmon and navy pillows from ELTE fill the space with colour.
  • Behind the sectional, a low Asian bench tucks beneath a sofa table.
  • Sculptural pieces like the Buddha and bronze leaf offer big style statements.
