Case Study Wellington - Apartment Living, CBD

CBD, Wellington
Earlier this year two of our Wellington designers worked together with a couple who were downsizing and relocating into the heart of the city. Surrounded by high rise buildings and the chaos of city life this apartment needed a contemporary face lift yet also be a space where this couple can come home, relax and be completely comfortable.
The Nice Sofa was what initially drew this couple to BoConcept – the plush and lounging style of the sofa felt comfortable and inviting while the structured look of the armrest and clean cut chrome leg offered an edge and interest to the space. Our Navy Frisco fabric was the perfect way to inject a statement colour without overpowering the room. This velour fabric has a worn patina which encourages a change in the depth of colour over the sofa so it doesn’t appear too bold.
Choosing functional furniture was key for this couple as with all apartment living, space is limited. Our Chiva Coffee Table has three functional panels which lift up and allow for storage underneath. Two of these panels come up and out and are ideal for working on your laptop at home or enjoying dinner on the sofa. The extendable dining table was another space saving option – our Granada comfortably seats 4 and the circular shape with plinth base helps the table to appear lighter within the room. The butterfly insert is an easy extension up and out and allows for entertaining a few more guests for an inner city dinner party.
Adding personality, colour and style was the main objective for this client. They didn’t want to lose themselves in the move – but wanted to create cohesion and balance between the many surface finishes of the apartments fit out and a selection of contemporary, sophisticated, Danish designed furniture.
