Crestron is launching its newly refurbished showroom at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, which has been beautifully redesigned with furnishings from leading high end interior brands. Located in the heart of the design world, Crestron’s showroom brings together luxury lifestyle technology and exquisite interior design, perfectly presented in a series of stylish settings.
Crestron’s showroom has been a key destination for those looking to incorporate the latest home technology into interior design since it opened in 2013. Designed as an inspirational space for interior designers, architects and integrators to bring their clients to explore home automation, the showroom is the perfect venue to experience the ways in which a stunning interior décor can be seamlessly intertwined with technology.
In an exciting development, Crestron has redesigned this luxurious space, partnering with pioneering brands from the world of high-end interior design to give visitors a luxurious and immersive smart home experience. This collaboration creates a stylish synergy between leaders in the fields of lighting, kitchens, furniture and interiors to create a beautiful environment controlled by Crestron, including a high-spec kitchen, spacious dining room, media room, home office and snug.
Each area is complemented by stunning lighting scenes and state-of-the-art AV, controlled by Crestron technology. Bespoke lighting installations, including a hand-finished bone china sculpture from Haberdashery of London’s ‘Leaf’ collection, add opulent detail to the Crestron showroom for an inspiring design showcase that will excite interior designers and their clients alike.
Alison Smith, Design and Production Assistant at Haberdashery comments, “We are delighted to have placed one of our Leaf products in the Crestron showroom; Haberdashery and Crestron have often worked together in some of the world’s most exclusive developments to deliver bespoke solutions for clients through light.”
“As the pre-eminent luxury furniture design brand, Poltrona Frau recognised an opportunity to partner with Crestron to showcase both companies’ peerless design and technical prowess. The purpose was to create a dialogue between architects, interior designer and consumers.” Explains Tristan Forrest, Managing Director of Cassina/Poltrona Frau, UK & Ireland.
Renowned lighting designer and Creative Director at Light IQ, Rebecca Wier adds, “Light IQ is proud to have assisted in the refurbishment of Crestron’s luxurious London showroom. Updated LED technology and stunning installations by Haberdashery and Cox London have created a destination for the discerning interior designer.”
Showroom guests are invited to experiment with the Crestron technology to create different ambient settings and discover how smart technology could enhance their lifestyle. Visible elements of the home control solution, such as keypads and iPads, demonstrate how easily technology can be blended into beautiful interior design without being imposing.
“Boffi is delighted with the installation of its ON/OFF kitchen at the newly refurbished Crestron showroom at Chelsea Harbour, providing a showcase of how Crestron’s control systems can work seamlessly within the kitchen environment”, says Steven Salt, Managing Director of Boffi UK.
Christopher Cox of Cox London comments: “We think of our lighting and furniture as artworks and we know they hit another level when lit properly. Working with Crestron’s highly advanced home automation means that the light that our chandeliers give out is as controllable as the light directed onto them from elsewhere in the room. In this way, working with the Crestron team means seeing our work at its atmospheric best.”
“The showroom is a fantastic example of how modern lifestyle technology can work perfectly alongside any interior design,” comments Robin van Meeuwen, President and CEO of Crestron EMEA. “The blend of cutting edge technology with innovative textiles, furnishings and decorative fittings delivers a truly unique space to showcase Crestron technology in the home. Our Chelsea Showroom now brings together a compelling and on-trend selection from leading brands including Poltrona Frau, Granites & Marble International, Studiotex, Boffi, Haberdashery, Cox London, Light IQ, Oikos, Flos Lighting and Jacaranda carpets “.
The showroom is officially opening its doors on 8th September 2016. Crestron will be hosting a series of events to celebrate the redesign during the month of September, including during Focus 16, with plenty of opportunity for guests to visit the space and try out the latest luxury smart home technology.
