Armadale Residence is the result of a cohesive and collaborative design process with like-minded creatives; home owner Penelope Cohen – Creative Director of fashion label Skin and Threads and Designer/Stylist extraordinaire, Simone Haag.
The brief was to rework Penelope’s formal living room and ensure that this grand Victorian home had an injection of contemporary and feminine sensibility, with a fashionable edge.
Simone interpreted the brief intuitively, delivering a warm yet powerful space with punches of jewel toned accents. Not shying away from colour and texture, Haag chose the Friends & Founders La Pipe dining chairs in an array of different tones – a stand out choice. The dining chairs were paired with elements of vintage (the bar cart and Danish vintage lamp to name a few). Finally, ceramics and objects overlaid the space to create an interesting backdrop to Penelope’s incredible library of fashion books.
