BAROQUE & ROLL: Baroque design is the new rock and roll in interiors…
Oracle & Time magazine features Luis Hernandez of Lewis & Co:
Interior design guru Luis Hernandez, who originally studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and whose projects have included a 100 bedroom castle in the English countryside, holiday homes in Hawaii and Mallorca and private residences in Kensington, Knightsbridge and the home counties, agrees. “Metal-constructed furniture designed with clean lines and a minimalist structure work perfectly as an accent piece for a more muted study or hallway area, as well as a primary focal point within a reception master bedroom,” he explains. “The dark grey steel nicely complements the current grey palette, as well as the natural tones coming through for 2017.” The founder of Marylebone-based Lewis & Co loves organic fabrics and a neutral colour palette, punctuated with bright, striking accents. As well as metal, alternative organic forms and natural materials are again heralded. Think wood, stone and cork combined with that classic modern favourite, dark leather furniture, softened up with some plush throws and heady wood-scented home fragrances, all favourites of Lewis & Co interiors.
“When it comes to furniture for 2017, simplicity of form will most definitely be key,” states Hernandez, whose signature ‘modern with a twist’ style makes for comfortable, yet stylish homes – ones that, while ticking all the trend boxes, also offer an alluringly timeless appeal thanks to their balance of both form and colour. “With colour palettes we will see natural tones that work to complement the organic materials used to create pieces of furniture,” he adds.
INTRODUCING THE L&C METAL FURNITURE COLLECTION BY LEWIS & CO
Marylebone based Interior design firm Lewis & Co launch their inaugural metal furniture collection
Leading London Interior Design firm Lewis & Co are delighted to launch their first furniture line, the L&C Metal Furniture Collection.
Designed by the firm’s Founder and Head Designer Luis Hernandez, signature pieces in the Collection include a Skinny Console, Skinny Table with Shelf, Rectangular Folding Tray, Bedside Table and Coffee Table Bench.
Uniform in their appearance, the angular lines bring an elegant sophistication that captures the Lewis & Co signature design style – modern with a twist.
Each piece in the Collection has been handcrafted from one raw piece of metal and feature slender legs that taper in towards the bottom. Form follows function, as each item is a practical object that can also be the centre point of a living room, bedroom or hallway area; the pieces are also perfect for displaying lamps, collectables or pieces of art.
Valuing craftsmanship and championing artisan skill, the L&C Metal Furniture Collection is handcrafted by a trusted welder using raw metal in its natural state. Each design can also be made bespoke to order.
Luis Hernandez commented: “As a designer, I like to work with organic materials in their natural state. With the L&C Metal Furniture Collection, I wanted to try push the limits of the structural properties of metal to create beautiful pieces for modern luxury living”.
The L&C Metal Furniture Collection ranges in price from £375 – £995 and pieces are available from Lewis & Co’s Marylebone boutique and online line store.
