The interior design project for a sumptuous, private residential complex located in the ritzy Toorak quarter in Melbourne grew out of the close working relationship between the architectural firm of Nixon Tulloch Fortey, Minotti London and the commissioning party, Jack Merlo, head of a well-known landscape architecture firm. A sophisticated palette of colors, ranging from silver-gray to the deep brown of the moka-tinted oak paneling, provides the background for a series of tasteful settings created with many elements from the company’s collection.
The living room was furnished with Andersen “Quilt” sofas upholstered in charcoal color velvet and paired with an Andersen “Quilt” ottoman, Huber coffee tables with tops in luxurious Calacatta marble, and Leger accent tables. The area next to the open-space kitchen was instead furnished with a corner composition of the Donovan seating system, Jensen armchairs and Calder coffee tables with top in Black Marquina marble. The large dining table is surrounded by Flavin chairs. The bedroom is outfitted with Aston sofas and armchairs upholstered in sensational light-blue velvet, lending an air of intimate refinement.
