The brief for the QED project in Selly Oak was to create a `home from home` flexible environment in six communal spaces. The objective was to give students a balanced way of living and working. Our client, Markey Group, wanted to create a brand identity through their interiors at QED. Our Interior Design Team worked closely with them to fully understand and deliver their vision.
We built the concept around a homely yet eclectic theme, by using industrial elements which were softened by mango wood furniture and wool textures. A subtle primary colour palette was selected by our Interior Design Team, the colours carefully selected to inspire, focus and stimulate the students.
Tony Markey, Managing Director at Markey Construction:
“We worked with Student-Furniture on six communal spaces at QED in Selly Oak, we asked the Interiors Team to create a new style that was homely yet eclectic, injecting personality into the brand. It was important that students had the right environment to work, as well as relax. The wool textures and wood furniture created a `home from home` feel for the students. Student-Furniture took our brief and turned into a stunning reality.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the process from the very initial design stages. Deciding on wall colours and spatial layout was fundamental to this project. We sourced furniture that ‘told a story’ and had real character, creating a homely and rustic touch”.
