Under the radar, but London-based, Jonathan Reed is a British Interior Designer and architect, known for his dramatic touch when it comes to interior decorating. With clientele like Jordanian royalty, David Bowie, Elle Macpherson, and Iman, he’s the go-to man if you’d like to give a pop of drama to your home!
It’s a given that each Studio Reed interior is unique, but there’s no mistaking Reed’s cool neutrals, pared-down styling, and bespoke furniture. He defines his style as ‘authentic, eclectic and crafts-based’.
Reed worked in retail design and development at Hackett and Polo Ralph Lauren, before establishing his own studio in 1996. To date, he employs 15 architects and interior designers, and another eight furniture designers. ‘Jonathan designs custom-made furniture using new, often undiscovered, hand-crafted materials and skills, set against a backdrop of finishes that are tasteful and muted,’ says lighting designer Sally Storey. ‘The result is warm, evocative and appropriate.’
“All materials are essential to our work – it’s the combinations that really excite me”. – Jonathan Reed

Perry is a dining chair inspired by the most famous occasional designs – it features a body structure produced in solid walnut wood, which makes it a durable and solid chair. Both the seat and the back cushions are upholstered in leather, evoking a sober look that contrasts with metal shoes on its legs, made of polished brass. A mid-century masterpiece and an homage to the modern living era.
