THE BEAUTY OF BUILT-IN

Australian House & Garden - - Advice -

Some­times a liv­ing space de­mands an un­con­ven­tional de­sign ap­proach. This is the case in the Syd­ney home above, where ar­chi­tect Madeleine Blanch­field opted for a built-in ban­quette in place of a sofa. “It’s eight me­tres long and up­hol­stered in a grey linen fab­ric on an oak base,” she says. The home’s lay­out un­der­went a rad­i­cal open­ing-up process, al­low­ing this over­sized fix­ture to star in, yet not over­power, the room. A pair of Ger­va­soni Gray 07 oak arm­chairs and a match­ing Gray 46 cof­fee ta­ble from Ani­bou lend a re­laxed warmth to the room. Hang­ing be­hind the sofa is a se­ries of framed em­broi­deries by Eko Nu­groho.
