Having established TRENZSEATER in 2000, a firm that specialises in tailor made luxury furniture, Ben Lewis has over a decade experience in identifying the burgeoning trends in furniture design as well as the classic, iconic silhouettes and styles that stand the test of time. Ben’s interior design has received global critical acclaim with the Andrew Martin Interior Design Review and the International Design Award. Let’s delve into what he suggests puts the fabulous in furniture.
Striking, statement pieces
With the advent of bulk and mass furniture that tends to look identical, the focus is shifting towards investing in one or two statement pieces that bring a unique flair to the room’s decor. Ben notes these pieces are larger in scale, with edgy or eye-catching silhouettes that differentiate them from the ‘norm’. He also suggests taking an eclectic approach to styling furniture so that each piece can contrast to the ones around it for maximum visual impact.
“I believe an eclectic mix of products gives the room more interest, with lots of layers to give the interior an inspiring finish to absorb and live in,” explains Ben.
