Jo Malone Headquarters, London

The latest issue of Lonny was just released - just in time for a little end of weekend reading. As I've come to expect, it was jam packed with lovely things and spaces to explore, but one particular space drew me in right away. The Jo Malone Headquarters in London, designed by British designer Rose Uniacke, the space is dramatic and impactful whilst remaining simple and understated all at once. The simple furniture and accessories serve to complement the original architecture of the 18th century Georgian townhouse.

Rose's career began originally as a trained furniture restorer. This strong background in antiques is quite evident in her interiors. Nevertheless, her spaces always read as very streamlined and modern. "There is an edge [to] the minimal interior," explains Rose. "Raw wood, deep black velvet, black marble. The artwork is simple yet dramatic."

The strong black elements add a bit of masculine edge to the otherwise calm and neutral space and fit perfectly with Jo Malone's classic black and white branding.

There's always a natural feeling to Rose's interiors - here the reclaimed wood floors, raw wood furniture and even the dramatic black oak leaf chandelier contrast beautifully with the original ornate architecture and mouldings of the building.
