In Use - Project

Clifton Hill Apartment, Melbourne

The team at Simone Haag Studio was engaged to specify the furniture, art and object for a pint-sized apartment in Melbourne.

The brief was to create a feminine, fun and functional space where the client could embark on the next chapter of her life surrounded by beautiful things.   The designers wanted to support local makers where possible for the furniture, art and object - 90 percent of the pieces are Australian made. 

“Mokum ticked the box when it came to colour.”

Sarah Shinners, Interior Designer

The inspiration behind the interior was based on the unique individuality of the client, who was well travelled, open minded and wasn’t afraid of colour, rather encouraging it.  Having lived in Europe for many years, she had experienced the art of apartment living and how colour can actually make a space feel larger, not smaller.

Through the collaboration with some fantastic craftsmen, furniture such as the curved sofa, was designed in collaboration with Harbro furniture.  The sofa that fits perfectly in the space, is upholstered in Alpaca Velvet, colour Ivy, by Mokum.   The fabric ticked all the boxes when it came to colour, plushness and comfort while adding texture and personality to the room.  Timber shelving and the sofa end table includes handy storage tucked in behind for when guests stay, and can convert into a single bed.
