On Jenny’s many buying trips abroad, she discovers companies which offer something quite unique in the world of interiors. Some 14 years ago, Jenny came across Century furniture at High Point in America. Having forged a strong association with the company since then, Jenny not only loves to use Century in suitable projects, but it is THE place for clients to buy Century’s exceptional furniture and design accessories.
To give you a flavour of the collections, it’s good to look back over some of the beautiful pieces the design team have placed in projects both in the UK and abroad. This exceptional table, in a Westminster apartment just a stone’s throw away from the Houses of Parliament, epitomises the craftsmanship of Century furniture together with its ability to suit both classic and contemporary interiors.
Still working with glass, Century create mirrors such as this one fitting seamlessly into the sitting room of a stunning residence in Polo Ridge, Barbados. The 3-D effect created by the eight bevelled- edge mirror panels adds interesting reflections whilst being a real statement piece to set the mood of the interiors. The coffee table, also Century, displays the very clever design details which turn an essential piece of furniture into something unique.
This very elegant chair shows the attention to detail in every piece. Influenced by legendary designer Thomas Chippendale, the framework is uniquely crafted and cast in powder coated aluminium cast from real bamboo and re-crafted as an authentic design only available in a tortoise shell finish. This chair has been designed and engineered to be suitable for use in the sunny outdoors although the design team love to use them indoors too. The fine proportions set off the dramatic coral stone monkey sculpture designed by our Design Director Sue Thomas-Richardson.
A unique bar designed by Jenny Blanc and manufactured locally for an exclusive family home in Barbados. It was crafted in local mahogany with original artwork panels depicting the island’s popular Green monkeys. This stunning bar required comfortable bar stools to be in keeping with the design and Century provided just the right level of sophistication and style. Jenny Blanc is the UK agent for Century so if you are wanting to find something of this calibre for your home browse through the brochures at our London showroom, or look online at www.centuryfurniture.com.
