Styled by Simone Haag and shot by Derek Swalwell, the collection really comes to life in the instantly recognisable ‘Light Corridor House’ from Figr – another est regular. Readers may remember this home as one of the featured spaces in our recent ‘Love Your Layout: Kitchen’ feature, but here it’s less about the kitchen and more about that rich materiality of the warehouse environment.
The exposed brick, timber cabinetry and panelling and steel framing make for a warm, tactile backdrop to Barnaby Lane’s pieces, while the abundance of natural light gives the whole campaign a lived-in feel. It’s all too easy to imagine yourself sitting at the table with a morning coffee and magazine, or sitting down to work in the study.
