Beata Heuman Ltd
Curves ahead in a London family townhouse
Less than 10 years since launching her business, Beata Heuman has already built a rocketship of a brand, fueled by her imaginative eye for rooms with color and personality. In her own London home, the Swedish-born designer makes a sitting room feel larger by belting it with an undulating line: Trace it skipping along the backs of her bespoke daybed, sofa and lyre cabinet and a rattan Venus chair by Soane. Equally lively are a scalloped John Derian tray for the Lacquer Company and a standing lamp from Svenskt Tenn, the Stockholm standby. Nothing is set in stone here, says Heuman: “It is important to create a home that can take being added to over the years. I really believe that living in an interior like this can make you more open-minded, since you surround yourself with unfettered expression.” We’re convinced.
“I want my interiors to be a natural — albeit enhanced — extension of human nature, and that to me means a great big mix of different influences, memories and impressions.”
