Country & Townhouse: The Top 50 Interior Designers
Country & Townhouse have recently published a list of the top 50 interior designers to follow & I’m happy to announce that we at Tollgard Design Group have placed in that top 50.
Husband and wife interior designers Monique and Staffan Tollgård admit to being staunchly functionalist when making design decisions.
‘We ensure that our clients’ homes are fit for purpose; using every square inch we can carveout,’ says Monique, head of the design studio. ‘
We believe in longevity of materials, the joy of colour and the importance of drawing the outside world in.’
Their diverse current projects include a heritage apartment in Copenhagen; the headquarters for a fast-growing tech company in London and a villa in Jordan. Yet Monique’s seminal experience was working on a Grade II-listed building just off the King’s Road. ‘It was a crooked house with a perfectionist owner who wanted to square every inexact corner.
Over the course of two years it taught me everything I needed to know about the workings of a period property; how to squeeze every modern convenience under the skin of a traditional home without losing its charm.’
Country & Town House launched in 2007 as the only monthly luxury magazine to target the increasing number of affluent ‘double lifers’ who enjoy the very best of country and city living. Celebrating the best of British living & luxury; it covers the finest houses, interiors, arts & events, food & travel, fashion & style, as well as relevant features and interviews.
