Helen Green Design Studio is an award-winning interior architecture and design practice, encompassing furniture and product development, with a global portfolio of projects.
The studio of talented and highly skilled designers primarily specialises in tailor-made, classic-contemporary residential schemes for an international, high-net-worth clientele. It also receives commissions from the hotel and hospitality industry and has recently designed suites for The Berkeley Hotel in London, allocating each room its own identity while maintaining a cohesive elegance which flows from one room to another, through a design palette of calming tones with accents of bronze and brass.
Founded by the late Helen Green, a celebrated force in the world of interior design, in 2002, the Helen Green Design Studio remains true to its original ethos of creating ‘liveable luxury’ through timeless designs that inspire.
Today’s studio operates with the same passion and integrity on which the company was founded – including offering support to emerging talent through the Helen Green Foundation and Green Ribbon Award – while allowing its creative direction to evolve. ‘At Helen Green Design Studio, we feel that there is an overarching signature style,’ says director Sammy Wickins. ‘Our aesthetic is about timelessness and comfort, layered textures and clever application of materials and colours. We approach each project with an acute understanding of the client’s lifestyle and tailor it to their needs.’
The company’s ambitious, international outlook has taken the brand to addresses well beyond prime central London and Britain’s country estates, as it propagates its own version of British heritage across cultures and continents. Projects in Europe and Australia have driven the brand in exciting directions and bode well for the future. Helen Green Design was the first studio to design a one-off suite in the Heathrow VIP Lounge – home to transiting celebrities and royalty.
‘We were chosen for our “innate sense of comfortable glamour”, which the client found instantly appealing,’ says Sammy. ‘Heathrow is the iconic gateway to Britain, so it was natural that Heathrow VIP wanted to work with a brand dedicated to British design.’
The studio recently worked with the property developer Tenhurst on a project within The King’s Library, a Grade II-listed Victorian building in Chelsea, with soaring ceilings and fine period features, enhancing its architectural heritage with clean-lined, contemporary design. Away from interior design, the company’s catalogue of furniture, fabrics and wallpapers – viewable at the Knightsbridge showroom – is flourishing. It draws inspiration from the worlds of art, travel, culture, technology and fashion, and a dedicated multinational team attends all the major shows to develop its taste barometer of ‘what’s hot’, always with an eye to the evolving needs of Helen Green Design Studio clients. Many products can be custom-made and the team is often asked to build in cabinetry or devise bespoke lighting. ‘The service our clients ask for is always so nuanced,’ says Sammy. ‘Things are never the same, and this keeps
us on our toes. We listen to our clients’ needs and desires, and seamlessly deliver them their dream home. Many return to us again and again.’
