It was with much pleasure that James Salmond launched his latest collection of exquisite furniture pieces this week. Classic and contemporary is his trademark and doesn’t he do it so beautifully. The thought he puts into each piece is very evident……his wonderful style shining!!
He is always on the hunt for original bits and pieces that he can incorporate into his designs or take inspiration from in some fashion. The cabinet above has been designed around his collection of small stone bottles….only James could create such an elegant piece with the choice of timber and design complimenting the warmth and earthy texture of the bottles.
James explains that this classic chair covered in gold with stud trim is the perfect size, height and proportion to have as a pair with side table in any room adjacent to the dining room…..simply add them in to your dining room setting for extra seating. All furniture is custom made to order with of course your favourite fabric.
I do have to say that James has impeccable taste and style when choosing the perfect fabric to suit his pieces of furniture. The fabrics in his showroom currently are particularly fabulous……grey, gunmetal and gold…..the future direction we are told.

The tall bookcases above show his fine ability to combine classic elements yet create a contemporary piece…in fact a piece that would be at home in any interior…as long as you had the ceiling height!!
These bookcases were my favourite pieces in the showroom. When I mentioned this to James he replied “you know you have created something special when you want to take it home” …I guess they are a favourite of his too.
