This past month, the interior decorator James Huniford presented a brand-new Chelsea showroom and a sophisticated furniture collection, made up of a selection of the type of pieces the designer previously created only as one-offs for his high-profile clients.
The designs made by Huniford, are meant to be user-friendly. All his designs are scale and contemporary livability are paramount, and dimensions, as well as upholstery, are all customizable. This is furniture that inhabits that elegant territory somewhere between modern and classic. A tufted slope-armed sofa ($7,800) is refreshed with a casual low-slung profile; a campaign-style side table ($4,800) is cheekily updated with a not-remotely-portable stone slab and chains; and a two-tiered occasional table ($5,800) has a brass base with an industrial feel. “I like the tension between contrasting materials,” the designer says. “Metal and stone, wood and glass.”
