It’s really no surprise that interior designer Blainey North’s furniture designs are as glamorous as she is and as luxurious as the five-star interiors she is famous for.
Established in 2001, Blainey North & Associates is a studio specialising in the interior architecture and design of luxury environments for five star hotels, exclusive residences and bespoke commercial and retail projects in Australia and abroad. Blainey North Collection was was established established as an extra arm to the business, specialising in custom designed furniture and specialty lighting.
It has always made sense to me that interior designers should design their own pieces. An ‘atelier for interiors’, Blainey is passionate about connecting ideas from the different design disciplines of fashion, film and the visual arts to create a unique language and ageless aesthetic.
She’s had no shortage of recognition, published in the Andrew Martin International Interior Design Review and featured in Harper’s Bazaar’s Hottest 100, as one of the top five design practices to watch. She has also been sponsored by the British Consulate to expand into London.
Last year, the studio completed a number of prestigious large scale residences in Sydney and a private art gallery and commercial building in Perth. Hotel commissions included a scope of works for Crown Towers Melbourne, Crown Metropol Perth and Crown Promenade Melbourne. Blainey has also been engaged to undertake the interior architecture of the lobby bar and spa for the new six-star Crown Towers Perth Hotel.
Isn’t her furniture divine?
Selected pieces from the Blainey North Collection are available at Becker Minty’s Potts Point store and the full range is available to view by appointment at the Blainey North showroom in East Sydney.
