It’s striking how everything appears to have its place in your office and home – clear surfaces, organised bookshelves, and tidy spaces. Was it these qualities that appealed to you with the USM Modular Furniture?
When I renovated the house I wanted to maximize space. Previously, I had floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and those big, old, grey filing cabinets, so I wanted it to look modern, I wanted it to look sleek, I wanted it to be elegant, I wanted it to be fresh but also practical, durable and organized. It was Rina Cohen, my interior designer, who suggested USM and I fell in love with it straight away.
It also flows well with the period furniture throughout the house. How did you develop your taste for antiques and design?
My Dad was in the furniture business, so I’ve always appreciated great design and craftsmanship, which ties in with the USM furniture which is timeless and elegant. I was worried initially about how it would blend with the antique furniture, but Rina who confirmed it would work together beautifully and it has. I particularly like the contrast of the white USM furniture with the wooden floors, and the defining chrome trim brings everything together.
