Marmorea Georgian townhouse installation.
Here we have some images of a Marmorea installation – including additional pieces courtesy of our sister company, Circa – from a Georgian townhouse in Chelsea.
For the fire surround – left image – our client chose a Louis XVI in Cararra marble. With paterae to the corner blocks, intricate yet subtle acanthus leaf carvings and console jambs, it displays a quiet beauty allowing the antique French mirror above to shine. And it does!
A 19th century piece with the original glass, it has an elaborately decorated frame with an ornate crest featuring flowers, shells and leaves.
As a complement to these antique pieces we have – from our sister company Circa – a striking 1960’s floor lamp by Maison Jansen. Incredibly unusual in design with a suede and brass base, it features three brass palm heads, each one creating a beautiful, warm light.
Moving to the next room we see a very large 1950’s brass framed mirror decorated with acanthus leaves and a crested top, featuring brass panels around the edge with small brass rosettes.
Reflected in the mirror is a perfect view of a 1960’s Snowball Sputnik chandelier in chrome and glass – again from Circa – attributed to Belgian glass manufacturer Val Saint Lambert, the first – and to date the only – Belgian crystal manufacturer.
Again we see a fusion of different styles creating a unique and personal living space.
