In 2017 we were approached by local designer Stine Holmes to see how we could help with a commercial project for her clients Mark & Tania – owners of ‘The White Room’ hairdressers – who sought to expand their well-established business by creating a multi-room beauty treatment salon.

The aptly-named White Room is known to be a very clean, minimal and contemporary space and an important part of Stine’s brief was to help retain that character after the transformation.

Stine had a clear vision and spatial plan for the new space and together we mapped out Bonsai’s contribution using our 3D Design service. A suite of bespoke furniture (both fitted and free-standing) took pride of place, together with a rustic, oak herringbone floor that would offset the predominantly white, clean lines that featured so strongly throughout.

The contrast looked really effective and was echoed in the construction material that we selected for the bespoke furniture: predominantly clean, white surfaces with the high quality veneer cores being made visible as a design feature. The floor, which was sealed using a tough but neutral, non-yellowing ‘invisible’ varnish, adds a welcoming tone to the entrance and reception area with the whole thing really set off by the lighting design and overall scheme that Stine created.

In addition to partnering with Stine we worked alongside local contractor Phil Guille Construction who made a great job of bringing the whole thing together.
