Learn how Robert Kime uses furniture and antiques that hold layers of history and resonate with the past. In conversation with Jeremy Langmead, Robert also discusses why looking to the past when furnishing is currently more important than ever, considering the carbon footprint of new high-street furniture.
‘Oxford taught me I was not a scholar – I really could not sit in the library for eight hours at a time - but I have never tired of looking at objects that inform me of the past... My projects always include lots of texture, starting with a carpet and building up from there. I don’t just use one colour and you can get away with stronger colours in embroideries. The result is a harmonious cocoon full of subtle variety and texture.’ –Robert Kime
