Peter Staunton brings together rock n roll and interior design. I love it when a designer has a definite signature, I’m not talking about having the same look, but a signature. In Peter’s case, his rock n roll signature helps him to give his designs an edgier feel. It’s fun and serious, but also very comfortable too.
What is your design signature/style?
Luxury Rock n Roll chic, mixing a fearless blend of raw & refined design. My aim is to create truly iconic interiors that transcend time, inspire its owners, and create a legacy for future generations.
What type of people do you love to work with as clients?
Open minded clients who like to push design boundaries, and give complete trust in my designs. There is nothing better than getting free reign to design a client’s home!
Can you tell us about a particularly exciting/challenging project?
Currently working on an exciting project that has been ongoing for 18 months, and requires transforming a large country house into a modern masterpiece. The challenge is working with some amazing heirlooms & antiques, whilst juxtaposing them with a fresh contemporary styling.
Does your home reflect your professional style?
Absolutely yes, my home is an extension of my showroom. I believe in practising what you preach. It is also a great opportunity to try new designs & ideas, & really push my boundaries. This also allows me to better advise my clients on exciting new ideas. To give you an idea in terms of living my rock n roll style, my gym is completely wrapped in black skull wallpaper!
If you had £10,000 to spend on a piece of furniture/accessory/art/decor item, what would it be and why?
A great statement sofa. As much as I love artwork as a feature statement in a room, a great statement sofa such as the Roche Bobois Mah Jong modular sofa is a piece of art in itself. But it is also great for families, social occasions, watching a movie – the way we live today, mixing form & (multi) function is paramount, and there is nothing better than kicking back with your loved ones after a hard day’s work.
What’s next for your business/brand?
To be a key player within London & the international design world. I would also like to be recognised within the fashion world as the brand to go to re-design high profile flagship fashion boutiques across the world.
Which new/up and coming designers do you currently have your eye on?
Kravitz Design by Lenny Kravitz. Although Lenny has been around for quite some time, his design company is quite new within the industry, and I love how he lives & breathes his style.
