High-End Furniture Retailer Finds Home In London


Thomas Griem, international award winning interior designer, is known for his globe trotting clients. In Griem’s latest project, he combines two apartments into one for a Lebanese born high-end furniture retailer who travels from Africa to London on a regular basis.


Griem was asked by his clients to create a modern, earthy, 5-star hotel-like setting within the original 1880 building. The resulting central London location was reconfigured as a four bedroom four-and-a-half bath lux home.


Beginning his inspiration with Schotten and Hansen wide plank flooring, Thomas and his team set the stage for the furnishings. The floor is equipped with built in radiant heating which joins the other technological innovations added to the apartment, Lutron lighting control system and Sonas AV system.


The color palette centers on cool greys and balanced with soft warms and punctuated with carefully chosen hits of color. The neutral palette was prefered by the Griem so that it would not compete with the owners artwork and select furnishings.
