TG-Studio was appointed to personalise, accessorize and interior design this brand new Azimut Grande 100 yacht which was freshly delivered from Italy to this boating enthusiast in Hong Kong. TG – Studio had designed the owners apartment and office before and we were delighted when asked to help the interiors for this yacht.
The brief was to personalise the interior and breathe in life and taste. No budget was set but we wanted to be economic considering that it was a brand new boat.
The main internal entertaining area is located on the main deck and consists of a living area and dining area. The living area seatis 8 comfortably and consist of two sofas opposite each other. We decided to keep the beige fabric for the first season and introduced a new coffee table and bespoke pouffs that slide underneath. New cushions, sculptures, semi precious stones and picture frames were carefully selected. We introduced a saddle leather wrapping it around the stainless steel shelves restraints softening the look. The bespoke rug is a studio design and introduces soft green colors balanced by the jungle cushions on the sofa. New side tables from B&B Italia feature the cyclone lamp, another TG product.
In the dining area we removed the bland white leather panels located on either side of the mirror/TV wall and introduced real bronze panels with an imprint of shagreen. We had these panels Manufactured in England by a specialist called ANKA. The dining table top was replaced with a composite top consisting of a MDF base and a slab of Arrabascato marble on top. The edges thin out and are chamfered not to create sharp corners. Not to replace all chairs we kept six of the dining chairs and added the Husk Armchair from B&B Italia on either end, upholstered in canary leather, to introduce punctuation and a bit of fun.
My favourite room is the rear on the main deck, the games and TV room. it features 5 skylights and was panelled in light oak. The existing furniture did not meet our expectation, so we had all pieces apart from the coffee table replaced. The coffee table can move up and done, folds in and out and is a feat of engineering. To good to dismiss. The main wall was covered with bespoke manufactured panels in Elitis fabric which we detailed with individual bronze studs creating and interesting patterns which also separates the Art, 300 year old sea charts we found in an antiques shop in London. The main sofas is an adapted Imprimatur from Maxalto, the symmetrical side-sofas are Feel Good in Tricot Tip Fabric. Our TG designed bespoke rug Chrysler Gold, available through Creatus, brings all fabrics in this room together. We accessorized this room with blue bespoke cushions from the Rug Company. Accessories are from Linley. The table lights are Giacometti from Porta Romana, a real find, adding a sculptural note to this very comfortable room.
A main feature of the yacht is its large sun deck. We upholstered the existing cushions in Herringbone Jacquard from Hermes and introduced Deco cushions available from Curatus and two sets of blue cushions in Cape Cod and Birds of Paradise fabrics from Holly Hunt.
Cushions were weighted with rice to prevent them from flying off board. Accessories were hand selected in London and Hong Kong to fit the lifestyle of the client.
The lower deck consists of 2 main cabins and 2 smaller cabins, all with en suite bathroom. The master bedroom has even 2 en-suite bathrooms.
We specified new carpets throughout with a marine silk carpet from Sylka, the product looks and feels like silk but does not get damaged by water and is very resistant. We replaced all ironmongery with Zegna from House of Eroju in London. All guide rails were upholstered with a dark brown leather by alma London. The Art in the hall way is from LUMAS.
The main cabin received a dark racing green carpet and new panels on the headboard covered in H Cube by Hermes Paris. The circular armchairs in the distance were upholstered with Smoking Room Velvet from Amy Somerville on the back and Alma leather on the base. The aim was to introduce more and richer finishes throughout this spacious room. The blanket on the bed is the ultimate luxury accessory, featured by Meissen in their home section it is embroidered in their logo and is made out of cashmere. The bedside wall lights are imported from California, a simple and stunning design made out of solid metal, Precision from Kelly Wearstler. Door handles are leather wrapped available from Olivari. The bed linen is from Frette.
The front cabin received a deep blue velvet silk carpet and wall panels behind the bed and opposite the bed were upholstered in Paddock Carbone from Hermes Paris, a beautiful patterned silk fabric offering great detail and colour selection. The wall lights are made out of marble and metal by Kelly Wearstler. Handles are leather wrapped by Turnstyle in the UK. The character table lamp on the sill is from Porta Romana, it is made out of deep bottle green glass. The Papillion cushion from the rug company adds colour, supported through bespoke cushions purchased locally.
