The pair’s adaptable and personal approach to design allows them to respond uniquely to the human needs of each project, where they combine form, function and decorative joy in equal measure. Coming from a theatre background, collaboration has always been key to 2LG’s work and has naturally progressed into the duo’s design ethic.
How would you describe your style and what has influenced your design?
While our style is adaptable to the needs of the client, there are common threads that run through our projects: namely a progressive use of colour, form and function with a passion for decorative joy and restrained opulence. Our main influences come from the culture we're immersed in; film, theatre, fashion and music. From Alexander McQueen to Bjork and Tom Ford movies, sources are varied and we simply love our garden, so we definitely have an obsession for florals.
Can you tell us a little more about your designs for FLOOR_STORY and exactly what inspired them?
Our home in Forest Hill is our muse and the main inspiration behind the designs for our collection with FLOOR_STORY. When we first bought the Victorian property, we allowed ourselves to really indulge in the ornamentation and layers of decades of decoration on walls, floors and ceilings. The process of exploration was incredibly exciting and as we peeled back the layers we found the revealed textures and patterns having a big influence on our work and certainly inspiring our first rug designs.
Now, as we are firmly in the phase of transforming our home into a dream pad, our latest designs for FLOOR_STORY are inspired by the threads we find running through our decorative style. Through bold graphic lines, shapes and playful colour, our home is an expression of our passion for decorative joy and controlled opulence and so too, our new rugs.
