We started out May with our monthly features revolving around all things British in conjunction with the frenzy of the Royal Wedding. We’re ending the month with our popular Designer Book Giveaway Series and a great book from English designer Tim Gosling. Signed by the author, Gosling: Classic Design for Contemporary Interiors profiles the amazing work of this talented designer. And there’s even a link to the Royal Wedding story – Tim Gosling was the designer behind the public reception rooms at the Goring Hotel. See later in the post for more info…
Classic craftmanship meets modern styling to create stunning interiors and furniture designed by Tim Gosling. In the book, Stephen Calloway introduces Gosling’s signature design concepts, reviews the design process, and reveals the timeless craftmanship blended with state of the art techniques in Gosling’s furniture.
Gosling Ltd is a luxury bespoke furniture design company whose vision is to combine classical inspiration and exquisite British craftsmanship with ergonomic perfection. These unique pieces of furniture, or whole interior design schemes, are tailored to each individual client’s exact specifications.
These amazing doors with geometric detailing are from a dining room cabinet designed by Gosling.
The detailing and planning that go into a bespoke Gosling creation are second to none.
You heard all about the Goring Hotel (Catherine Middleton’s choice of accomodation the night before the wedding) in news reports around the world. You might have wondered what the hotel looked like inside. Above is the lounge with its gilded ceiling and design by Gosling.
Empty gilded frames on lacquered walls in the Goring Hotel lend a contemporary look to the classical surroundings.
