Some apartments have it: that one detail you always wonder about. What’s the point? What’s it for? Can it be improved or just redesigned so there

is a use for it? Bespoke shelves and frame, cut to size and painted for this mirrored niche.

It started with an idea, developed into a discussion and finished as a drawing on paper. The result -  a bespoke element to frame the fireplace: bookshelves, a storage area for wood and a cosy, illuminated reading corner.

When you really want to put THAT lamp in THAT spot it’s time to get creative. Clever solution: creation of a support beam for the light installation.

Custom built chests that can be pulled out, separated or linked and offer lots of room for everything you want out of sight.
