Experience Luxury, Sustainability
Living Edge’s new Perth showroom and retail store, located in a heritage building in the centre of the CBD, offers customers an engaging and immersive experience among some of the world’s most exclusive furniture and lighting brands. Reflecting Living Edge’s commitment to longevity, simplicity and sustainability, the original merchant building, dating from the early 1900s, has been lovingly revitalised by HASSELL. After paring back the building to its bones, HASSELL took a light touch to the interior design, using a refined material palette. The interior has been stripped back to reveal exposed brick and timber beams, which are complemented by dark bluestone, burnished steel, and brass trimmings, applied with a sensitive hand. Much like the products housed within, the renovated structure demonstrates a richness of material and simplicity of form.
Six tall, arched windows open onto the street, letting in a flood of natural light to the ground and first floors. On entry, customers are met by a sculptural, bronze point-of-sale desk that is equally striking and welcoming. On the first floor, the client engagement area is finished in burnished steel and features sculptural insertions, as well as a 608-bottle wine wall that is a work of art in itself. Downstairs, the basement level provides a warm and intimate contrast to the openness and light above, but remains redolent of Living Edge luxury.
The beautifully crafted space provides a platform to showcase Living Edge’s portfolio of contemporary, world-renowned brands such as Herman Miller, Walter Knoll, BassamFellows, Muuto, and BD Barcelona Design. Each collection has its own space to create a meaningful and fluent experience for customers. The designer lighting throughout the showroom is also part of Living Edge’s product range.
The thoughtfully designed showroom is just the second building in Perth to achieve WELL certification, a standard which recognises a project’s sustainability efforts, and capability to enhance rather than compromise its users’ health and wellness. The unique space promises a rich experience for customers seeking worldclass furnishings for their home.
