A contemporary classic style offering luxury and elegance

Laura Hammett is a luxury interior design and architecture practice which has grown from strength to strength since it was founded in 2008 by husband and wife team, Laura and Aaron Hammett.

Their design studio is based in Fulham and it is London with its eclectic architecture and fashion which inspires them.

While every project is different and is tailored to the site, its locality and the client, there is a clear signature style that is apparent throughout all Laura Hammett projects, one which is luxurious contemporary classic, fused with a meticulous attention to detail.

The practice also offers a completely bespoke furniture and accessories service, all designed for each home by the Laura Hammett design team. This truly gives a one of a kind home to clients.

Two recent projects shown here exemplify their style:

A contemporary Belgravia Ecclestone Mews house was a challenge for the team as it required them to push their usual design style further than ever before to give the luxury and visual impact that it needed. Arranged over three floors the accommodation is beautifully appointed with the highest quality stones and finishes including

Light was an issue and the way light has been directed through the house is no better emphasized than by the elegant marble helical staircase with LED tread lighting and a mirrored wall that runs the full length of the house.

The ceilings were finished in a specialist high gloss to bounce more natural light throughout the house and a seven-metre chandelier running through the entire house brings further light down into the basement.

Mirrors were used in every part of the house, on walls, joinery and internal doors to give the maximum feeling of space and light. Every piece of furniture designed by Laura Hammett using bronze detailing, specialist high gloss finishes and luxurious fabrics.

A Grade II Listed Belgravia Townhouse in Wilton Street was a particular favourite of Laura’s for its historical interest and feel, one which best reflects the style of the company.

The team worked very closely with Listed Building Consent on the architectural detail so that every element was historically accurate and sympathetic to its Regency heritage.

With the exception of the modern back extension, the design was approached with an understated elegance. Softer finishes and tones were used to compliment rather than compete with the classical architecture.

All the joinery was meticulously designed, heavy on details using different materials such as metalwork, bronze mirrors and specialist veneers.

Many pieces of bespoke furniture were designed using a variety of materials such as parchment, leather, metalwork, fabrics, shagreen and specialist veneers. In the dining room, study and drawing room, a very classic herringbone parquet flooring in a rich chocolate stain was used for a more formal look.
