1508 London created a modern interior that ties in with the history of Mayfair

This stunning London property is nestled between the beautiful St James Park and historic Mayfair.

Built in the 1980s, the apartment occupies the sixth and seventh floors of a contemporary building, designed by the renowned architect James Stirling.1508 London were commissioned to create a modern interior that would tie in with the history of Mayfair but also incorporates the client’s eclectic collection of modern 20th Century art.

Sourced from Porta Romana, Stuart Scott and Bolier, the furniture and furnishings were inspired by 1930s design with clean, fluid lines, luxurious lacquers and parchment details.

In the living room, a set of ten limited edition prints depicting a famous painting called ‘La Fee Electicitie’ by Raoul Duffy hangs along one wall. Painted in the 1930s, it explored the relationship between man and machine which inspired the design scheme.

1508 were keen to create an interesting link between the floors. ‘We developed a bronze and glass staircase design in order to allow the light to flood into what had previously been a very dark space. The walls around the staircase were mirrored creating a stark, very sculptural staircase that works well with the clean feeling of the rest of the design,’ says Louise Wicksteed, lead designer.

The traditional, historic location contrasts wonderfully with the use of gold and contemporary modern finishes.
