Private Residence – Central London
A well-known international fashion model commissioned us to produce library ladder solutions for two dressing rooms within her London home.
The property, built in the Georgian period, sported a wonderful array of typical period features, some of which presented unique challenges to this project (uneven ceilings and wall heights for example)!
Both dressing rooms were an elegant blend of period and contemporary styles. Both needed different solutions to tackle the individual spaces, layouts and requirements of each room, however the overall style and colour scheme were matched and observed for both systems.
The final solution provided two rolling gun barrel steel and antique brass library ladder solutions, one of which needed to enable the user to be able to position the ladder vertically when not in use. The solution provided for this dressing room incorporated a ladder which both rolled smoothly from left to right, but also retracted, vertically, against the wardrobes – maximising the floor space within the room. Equally, this particular room had a restricted amount of space for the ladder to extend, when in use. (We would normally construct any ladder solution to observe the ‘Four in One‘ rule, however the restricted floor space meant this could not happen.) This was a truly made-to-measure library ladder solution!
When all was ‘said and done’, the client was hugely complimentary… “The ladder looks and feels fabulous, thank you so much. Job bloody well done I’d say!“
