Customer requirements: Customer liked upcycled furniture, shabby-chic style and wanted a cosy, unusual, retro-style room. The customer had an existing large pine bookcase with glazed doors which had to be retained.
The design challenge: The lounge only had 2 single electrical sockets. A radiator restricted where the furniture could be placed. There needed to be lots of storage for books and other items. She needed to retain the antique table and cream leather armchair and she needed to have ample seating for large family gatherings.
