The Formby family wanted to create a calm room to tidy away their collection of books, photo albums and files, whilst providing the children with a neat area to concentrate on homework. The ability to tuck away wires whilst keeping the room light and airy was also important in the brief.
Range: Vigo office | Finish: Light Pine
The friendly Hammonds designer, Neil Lalouette, measured the room and created a design that gave the family lots of storage solutions. Fitted shelving and cupboards meant that the family could neatly store their collection of books, photo albums and files. The style of the cabinetry that they chose was the Vigo in light pine and vanilla gloss. The colour combination stood out to them as it is light with a distinctive look. Handle-less push to open door gives this range a sleek finish, exaggerating the space to make the room look bigger. Mrs Formby particularly liked the texture of the grain on the wood finish, giving the room that extra bit of character. A handy desktop power port was fitted in, making study life that little bit easier, without crawling along the floor to find a plug; it’s easily accessible on the desk.
"We’re very happy; we should have had it done years ago. The kids now have a calm area to do their homework, and if we ever need to work from home we have the perfect area to concentrate."
