Time­less flair

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Art & Design - By Renyi Lim

Decorus Fur­ni­ture is no stranger to be­spoke com­mis­sions: its work­shop in Hert­ford­shire has de­signed and pro­duced fur­ni­ture, light­ing and dec­o­ra­tive ac­ces­sories, of­ten in col­lab­o­ra­tion with in­te­rior de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects. Since it was es­tab­lished in 2008 by di­rec­tors Stu­art Sharp­less and Richard Hart, Decorus’s cre­ations have fre­quently popped up in glam­orous lo­ca­tions such as The Lang­ham Ho­tel and Mandarin Ori­en­tal Hyde Park’s Rose­bery Lounge in Lon­don.

Its au­tumn/win­ter 2017 col­lec­tion sees the re­lease of five new state­ment pieces, with a fo­cus on fin­ishes that have been care­fully paired to ei­ther com­ple­ment or con­trast. Brass, nickel and pol­ished stone, for in­stance, are set against dec­o­ra­tive glass, cast liq­uid met­als or ex­otic ve­neers, demon­strat­ing Decorus’s eye for the un­usual and ex­tra­or­di­nary. Each piece is cus­tomis­able, such as the Kens­ing­ton Bar Cab­i­net (from £ 21,360, RM118,960), which can be crafted in grey fig­ured eu­ca­lyp­tus with brushed an­tique brass hard­ware and ac­cented with bronze eglomise dec­o­ra­tive glass doors.

Equally tempt­ing are the Arcadia and Laz­zaro free­stand­ing con­sole ta­bles, which show­case the skills of Decorus’s crafts­men in hand-forged met­al­work­ing. The elab­o­rate Laz­zaro (from £10,200) is avail­able in hand­forged, tex­tured steel, and can be fin­ished in medium plat­inum sil­ver with a pol­ished Nero Mar­quina mar­ble top and plinth. The grace­ful curves of the Arcadia (from £ 6,566) ex­plore the al­most end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties of work­ing with Decorus’s liq­uid metal fin­ishes, such as cast­ing the top and lower shelf pan­els in brass liq­uid metal. www.decorus­fur­ni­ture.co.uk ≠
