Rustic 19th-century antiques are mixed with sleek mid-century modern in the quirky King’s Cross home of two designers.
Fashion designers Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts, aka Antoni & Alison, run their studio from their four-storey Georgian home in Southwark, London – all raw brick, exposed beams and reclaimed furniture. The house was rotten when they bought it. “The surveyors said, walk away, but we fell in love with it,” says Antoni. A handsome panelled wood front door, which leads directly on to the ground-floor reception, replaced an ordinary-looking door from B&Q.
