he de­signer gained an in­ti­mate un­der­stand­ing of fur­ni­ture as a re­storer and gilder be­fore set­ting up as an an­tique dealer and in­te­rior de­signer. her shop on the Pim­lico Road in Lon­don of­fers dec­o­ra­tive an­tiques as well as her own grow­ing range of be­spoke fur­ni­ture de­signs. her in­te­rior-de­sign projects in­clude Jo Malone’s Lon­don head­quar­ters.

This is the draw­ing room of an apart­ment on the first floor of a lat­e­vic­to­rian build­ing that over­looks Buck­ing­ham Palace. Rose was com­mis­sioned to create a for­mal en­ter­tain­ing space that com­bines clas­sic style with con­tem­po­rary twists and which makes the most of vast floorto-ceil­ing win­dows in this room as well as in the bed­rooms. The sim­ple colour scheme com­prises a com­bi­na­tion of pale grey on the walls and lime-green silk at the win­dows.

The space is fur­nished us­ing a mix of con­tem­po­rary pieces from Rose Uni­acke’s own RU edi­tions range, in­clud­ing a pair of Rose­wa­ter arm­chairs (£4,650 each), the Draw­ing Room sofa (£8,400), the hoof table (£2,880), the pati­nated-steel cof­fee table (£7,200) and a pair of right-an­gle wall lights (£1,194).

The floor lamp is vin­tage, de­signed in the 1940s, by the Mod­ernist French de­signer Jac­ques Ad­net, whose com­mis­sions in­cluded the pri­vate apart­ments in the elysée Palace.
