There is no doubt that 2020 has brought some of the greatest changes to our lives, the likes of which haven’t been seen for decades.  The emotional, psychological, cultural, and economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic has been far-reaching and spanned regions, countries, continents, and almost every corner of the globe.  However, far from wholly negative consequences, energy, creativity, and human resilience have risen tall.  No more so has this been true than within the world of interiors, particularly the way in which professionals and consumers are reimaging design within the home. The close of the year always brings with it a plethora of industry predictions for the forthcoming months but this year the trends and vogues of aesthetic and practical preferences seem to hold an even greater poignancy as people reflect on how important a sanctuary their home really has become.  With that in mind, we have uncovered some...

From the earliest documented chairs in ancient Egypt through to iconic designs such as the 17th century Wainscot, the 18th century Fauteuil and early American Chippendales, no other item of furniture has been invested in with more care, design and craftsmanship than the dining chair. Swaying between practicality of form and in latter years, style over substance, the evolution of artisan techniques means that today neither comfort or exquisite design need to be compromised when selecting a chair. Here at Kassavello we thrive on selecting the very best dining chairs for our curated collection of branded furniture....

From hanging up stockings to decorating Christmas trees, pulling crackers, and eating Christmas pudding – there is a multitude of rituals and traditions associated with the festive season and yet few people really understand the meaning and rationale behind these practices. Many dates back thousands of years to primitive times whilst others have been influenced by religion, popular culture, and even commercial advertising. As the team at Kassavello start to hang up their decorations and get into the festive spirit we set out to uncover some of the mystery surrounding these rituals and to understand how the power of color, texture, and design has the ability to sprinkle some Christmas magic in every household. The smell of pine needles and twinkling lights glistening from top to toe is a tradition that goes back to Roman times when fir trees were first decorated at temples in honor of the Roman god, Saturn...

The boardroom as we know it today has been in existence since the early 17th century providing a place for people to gather together, delegate authority, and ensure that the workings of society or business are carried out efficiently and effectively.  Square tables within the boardroom have traditionally reinforced the power dynamics of a leadership team – at the head of the table you carry an unspoken message of leadership and control whilst in a middle seat you are collaborative, approachable, and a team player.  Round tables tend to create an atmosphere of relaxed informality, ideal for promoting discussion and teamwork although interestingly by moving the chair back a little, in either setting, you can claim a psychological advantage with regards to status and authority.

2018 saw 1.4 billion international tourist arrivals globally – that’s the number of trips taken abroad for holidays/leisure time. Even more remarkably, it’s a rate that’s steadily growing by an average of 4% per year. If you add on business trips and staycations, where holidaymakers choose to stay in their own country, it’s not surprising that there is a phenomenal momentum within residential design to emulate the sleek finishes and elegant aesthetic design of five-star hotels. Increasingly, interior designers are being asked by clients to directly replicate a particular hotel suite or to source a piece of furniture that they fell in love with in the lobby or hotel bar. At Kassavello we are fortunate enough to source pieces for both commercial and residential projects and often see trends bridging the two before they are filtered down to the high street....

A bespoke design journey with Homes One Interiors Chelsea is arguably one of the most desirable places to live in London.  So when interior design atelier Homes One were tasked with furnishing two modern residential projects - two apartments - within the area they were keen to take a bold approach, ensuring that the properties would stand out within the marketplace through the incorporation of exquisite bespoke furniture and distinctive styling. Having collaborated on previous projects with us, the Homes One team involved Kassavello in the modern residential project at a very early stage to determine the scope and possibilities for a variety of branded items and bespoke furniture.  Not only were the aims of the project high but as with so many similar projects there was a strict timeline to adhere to and a budget to comply with.  Facilitating early conversations ensured that the Homes One design team could keep on...
