Florin Interiors designed the terrace, using limestone slabs from Mandarin Stone, creating a total of 8 parterres for planting, which are lit, to great effect at night.  The retaining walls are constructed with oak sleepers.

'The idea was to use the same limestone as the internal floors, so that the inside and outside space really does flow into one whether the bi-folding doors are open or closed', said Beverley.

Silk wallcoverings and stretch fabric walling

Posted 22 June 2013

Florin Interiors has completed the installation of silk wallcoverings and stretch fabric walling, together with co-ordinating re-upholstery of existing dining chairs in a series of dining rooms for a City based financial institution.

Stretch fabric walling is a luxurious finish, where silk or linen fabrics are stretched over battens and thick wadding, to create an upholstered wall finish which is a striking and luxurious finish used in residential and corporate environments.

Stretch fabric walling

"We have a highly skilled installer who completes this work to the very highest standard and the finish is amazing', said Beverley England, Director at Florin Interiors. 'For Boardrooms and dining rooms, the fabric walling can dramatically improve the acoustics in the room, absorbing noise as well as providing a dramatic backdrop to rooms which can often be plain square boxes', continued Beverley. "We have also installed silk walling to bedrooms and studies in both residential and commercial settings'.


Online Interior Design

Posted June 2012

Florin Interiors, established now for 20 years and based in Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire, has just launched an online interior design service.

Online Interior Design Service

‘Online Interior Design is a great solution for busy people’, said Beverley England, Director at Florin Interiors Ltd., who is based in the Hertfordshire office.  ‘Most of us purchase items online, so, for residential interiors and even straightforward commercial interiors, it seemed an obvious development to provide a professional interior design service which people can access online, rather than make an appointment and take time out of their busy schedule to either stay at home and meet a designer or visit a designer’s workplace’, continued Beverley. 

There are 3 stages for this online interior design service, enabling clients to have the freedom to choose how much or how little assistance they require for their project: 

Stage 1: Requesting a design scheme for one room
Contact Florin Interiors via email or telephone and one of their designers, based in their Hertfordshire or Cambridgeshire office will be assigned to you in order to discuss your project in detail. Forward images, photographs and plans of the room you wish to transform and the scheme will start to be progressed and within five working days you will receive a scheme board showing proposed furnishings and layout.  The scheme board will enable you to create the look designed for you, in your own timescale and budget and the fee for this online service is £150.00.

Stage 2: Detailed specification and quotation
If you wish to progress your scheme using all the furnishings shown on your scheme board, the designer at Florin Interiors will email you a detailed specification and quotation for the room to include all material and labour costs.  The fee for this stage is £100.00 but this charge would be refundable if you then instructed Florin Interiors to supply and install the scheme. 

Stage 3: Installing approved interior design scheme
Prior to starting work on your project, a site visit would be organised from the Cambridgeshire or Hertfordshire office, so that the area could be properly surveyed, then the logistics and installation date would be agreed with you, together with the completion date.  Ordering would take place upon receipt of payment for furnishings and on site labour, all as itemised in the detailed quotation.

If you are interested in this new online service, either email @ design@florininteriors.co.uk or telephone 01763 853200.

Stunning images of the completed Smoking Room project can be viewed in this video.

Refurbishment project in Whitehall

Posted September 2011

Completed on time and within budget, a six week refurbishment of an historic and prestigious room within a London Club, situated in Whitehall.

The scope of works included restoring the ceiling dating back to 1882 and careful cleaning, repair and replacement of decorative tiles on impressive Corinthian columns.

The decorations included hanging a rich, dark green damask wallcovering, making up over 500 mts. of woven damask fabric for the curtains with green and gold bullion fringe and decorative cord and tassel tiebacks.

The carpet was specially woven to include five chlidema inset rugs in a Turkish design, which was re-coloured to suit the new scheme.

All the specialist contractors completed their works within an extremely tight programme with Florin Interiors, as the Interior Design Company, Main Contractor and Project Management team.

Restoring columns

The above image was taken mid-way during the project when the columns were being restored and the damask paper was being hung.

In the image on the right, the carpet has been fitted, chandeliers are hung, the base of the ceramic columns are being cleaned and the curtains are about to be installed, leaving the portraits to be reinstated and furniture to be installed.

Florin Interiors Design Director wins Arc 2010 transatlantic race on a 47.7 Beneteau yacht, together with the rest of the crew, of course!

Florin Interiors Design Director wins Arc 2010 transatlantic race

The yacht EH01 owned by Global Yachting, based in Cowes came first in category and first overall. The passage took 19 days from Las Palmas across the Atlantic ocean to St. Lucia and the crew arrived tired, but elated at around 2.00 am in St. Lucia and were greeted by the Arc welcoming committee bearing fruit and rum.

The crew of 10 were from around the world who signed up to do this race, guys from England, Sweden, Netherlands, Denmark and the United States.

"We had a few tough days upwind sailing when the conditions were really uncomfortable, but everyone pulled together and the lasting impression I have of the experience is of laughter and sheer enjoyment.  The scenery was astonishing with amazing dawns and sunsets, the sea was different every day and we had dolphins racing the bow waves, and a couple of times spotted the odd whale.

It was a fantastic experience and to win the race is just brilliant!' said Beverley, who is back in the office now but hoping to be able to do the Rolex Sydney/Hobart in December, projects and work permitting!
