The major cities of the world offer unparalleled opportunities to find inspiration for our design collections, from Paris to the London Scene, we take it all in.
The London Scene
We consider ourselves to be fortunate that we run with such a savvy crowd because we believe that intelligence not only elevates the conversation about design, it enlivens our designs. When our CCO Bruce Andrews was featured in Magnifissance Magazine, he was in such terrific company given how smart the content of the international publication is. The issue is subtitled “Honoring a Noble Heritage” and we were thrilled to be featured since this is what we are all about here at Bruce Andrews Design. In fact, the publication’s tagline, Luxury Refined Through Heritage, couldn’t be closer to our own philosophical bent! The article speaks to the fact that we are taking a unique approach to furniture manufacturing, our focus on bespoke and luxury setting us apart from many other companies producing products for the home today. The issue was UK-centric, our story a good fit because our first Collection Skye was inspired by Bruce’s Scottish roots.
Other stories in the issue featured the British royal family—Queen Elizabeth II’s milliner, for instance; her former crown jeweler, and a portrait artist who had captured her quite powerfully share their experiences with HRH. Another piece finds the magazine’s team on an excursion to a family-run shop solidly on the London design scene to survey the timepieces being sold, all valuable antiques. Andrew Ogletree is also featured, the head of sales and assistant vice president at Mallett, London’s last “antiques department store,” cites Knole House in Kent as his favorite great English country home as “not to miss” if you’re touring grand European estates.
