Lefèvre Interiors in Berlin

 

More than a year ago I was contacted by readers of my blog who asked me if I could help them designing a bookcase and if our company would be interested in installing the cabinet in their home nearby Berlin, Germany.

I didn’t hesitate for one moment and started sketching after receiving some pictures of the existing situation of their living room.

The intention was to build a library cabinet on either side of the window.

As I noticed that the window was not centered on the wall, we suggested our client to replace the existing window by a new designed window and to have it centered in order to obtain a symmetrical cabinet arrangement. A profound change on the exterior of their home, but still attainable!

The cabinets are connected by a cornice extending the entire wall. The panelled sides of both cabinets and the created ceiling form a niche towards the window.

 

A few days ago, our Belgian photographer Claude Smekens travelled all the way to Berlin to take a photoshoot of the beautiful home of our client, and sent me these pictures of the living room with the Lefèvre Interiors library cabinets.

The beamed ceiling was painted in a shade of white and the walls were given a new color.The dining table, and a new chandelier found by a local antiques dealer, are now placed at the center of the room.

I absolutely would love to thank our German clients for their confidence in our company and for giving their permission to publish the photos on my blog.

 

Wishing you a fresh start of this new week!

  6. Well done! The cabinets turned out beautifully and look as if they were always there. They tie in seamlessly with the existing architecture and I like how integrated the doors are into the design.

    Bravo!
