The Autumn Interiors Luxe List

Posted on by Beyond Bespoke

From a one-off John Makepeace desk to a bronze coffee table from Cox London, Interiors Editor Jo Denbury selects her favourite stand-out pieces for autumn from the world of British luxury


Dorset-based John Makepeace has a place in design history, from founding his own furniture school to creating his own pieces inspired by nature and form. Each piece is a one-off. Here is the Jurassic desk in washed oak with buffalo skin linings. POA, John Makepeace


Consider the artful experience of floating in a hammock while soaking in a luxurious bath. This new Vessel bathtub is designed for a full immersive experience. Made from carbon fibre this bath comes 2.7m long but custom sizes and colours are available to order. POA.


In pursuit of perfection we turn back to the cream of British craftsmen, and potter Jono Smart is one to watch. Each piece is a simple form, made in the best of materials, choices of colour and texture, lovingly brought together. Hold a cup in your palm and feel the many tiny ideas that go into each piece. By commission only. Cups from £25 each.


The sculptured texture of this new Bronze Fragment coffee table from Cox London is produced from cast patinated bronze panel with a ferric verdigris finish. It is an ideal form to contrast with the deep velvets of autumn. POA. Cox London


From dressing rooms and staircases to libraries and reception rooms – and more contemporary living spaces such as cinemas, wine rooms, powder rooms and games rooms – bespoke furniture, cabinetry and specialist joinery company Bill Clyndert will ensure the seamless installation of fully integrated classical interiors. Bill Clyndert

Games tables are going through a revival and this circular backgammon table that flips to reveal a leather card surface is ideal. Designed in grey oak with sycamore palm fronds it complements the decorative colonial vibe that is circulating the design world. ‘Palm Table’, £11,760 plus VAT at


As the days get shorter a new rug is always a great way to brighten up a room. Look out for Paul Smith’s new collection of hand-knotted Tibetan wool rugs in subtle geometrics in muted tones. ‘Split Bright’ comes 2.74 x 1.83 at £4,412 or at £880/m2.
