Interior Design

Rose Uniacke at Work

An unprecedented level of craft is the key signature of Uniacke’s design ethos, on display in this much-anticipated monograph of notable homes she has created.

In-demand London-based interiors and furniture designer Rose Uniacke beautifully showcases a number of homes she has designed, boasting clean lines and calm, light-filled spaces, and showrooms defined by an effortless blend of traditional details within contemporary spaces. Whether the project is an urban townhouse, a seaside retreat, or a London villa, the approach of Uniacke is always the same—a collaboration with clients to make understated, refined sanctuaries that offer the perfect settings for everyday life. The book is sumptuously illustrated with two hundred color photographs that truly capture the serenity and timelessness of Uniacke’s hand-hewn cultivated style.

The pages of this book exude the same warmth of a Uniacke interior, heightened by the author’s own words as she describes in detail the specifics of each of the eleven projects explored. The result is akin to an informal conversation, with Uniacke revisiting her journey to share instincts and inspirations. An index of Rose Uniacke Editions, the designer’s furniture, lighting, and textiles, completes this elegant volume.i

Reviews

"The British designer ROSE UNIACKE balances rigor and softness in her work, which extends from interiors to her acclaimed lines of furniture, fabrics and paint. In this Rizzoli volume, which includes a foreword by design writer Alice Rawsthorn, Uniacke begins with a look at her own London home. Its spaces prominently display artworks by the likes of GERHARD RICHTER and CARL ANDRE, as well as what she calls “John Soanian views through arches,” an allusion to the 19th-century British architect that reflects her love for updating classical forms. With the help of images from photographers SIMON UPTON, FRANÇOIS HALARD and Luke White, she moves on to show off other houses, like a particularly impressive 19th-century Notting Hill home, whose drawing room features Uniacke’s own Rosewater armchair in dark green across from sleek 1950s ALVAR AALTO chairs, while a bedroom incorporates a chair by JEAN ROYÈRE in yellow velvet and Royère wall lights. On every page, the designer demonstrates her knack for making smart planning look like offhand simplicity." —1st Dibs
