The Other Door collaborated with fantastic leading brands as well as some truly amazing individual retailers to create a fun, characterful and comfortable room set inspired by the classic comedy series Only Fools and Horses.
The process was a lot of fun from creating the concept mood boards, sourcing the products, building the whole set in a tight deadline and presenting the finished product to celebrity interior designers Sophie Robinson and Daniel Hopwood on stage at the show.
The concept was 'members club lounge meets bric-a-bac market style with a big personality'. The idea was to re-create the feel of the fabulously kitch Peckham flat but mix it up with high quality and original furnishings made bespoke for the show as well as original antique and vintage items sourced to create that slightly re-purposed yet aspiring grandeur feel from the flat.
The wallpaper chosen for the set was strikingly similar to the original wallpaper from the flat and produced the perfect back drop for building fun busy layers for this themed room.
Del's loud personality was represented in the colourful on trend fabric choices of classic British style furniture and the zebra rug. Favourite episodes were cited in some of the key pieces of the room such as the oversized chandelier and the pocket watch. The market theme was brought out through the lounge bar made from piled up vintage suitcases and boxes of bric-a-brac made from antique apothecary drawers.
