Britain is home to some of the most beautiful historic houses in the world
There are different architectural styles on every street across the country. There’s one problem though. These period properties just don’t work for us anymore. They don’t cater to the demands of modern life.
That’s where George Clarke comes in.
Each episodes features George combining the old with the new to achieve a modern day look that makes the most of these diverse properties.But best of all, George uses a boatload of Cult Furniture products and they’re all available here for you to recreate his looks in your home.
George helps homeowners make their period homes fit for modern life. In this episode, George revamps an outdated 1930s semi in Liverpool and a stunning medieval farmhouse in Kent. In the bedroom George adds a pop of pastel blue with the Moda armchair. He adds contemporary appeal to the kitchen with the golden legged Moda barstools and blossom pink Heather dining chairs.
George makes a tiny Victorian terrace in Stratford-upon-Avon fit for a 21st-century single dad. Using bright and colorful decor, including the Moda rocking chair in lemon he brings playful vibrancy to the home. And in Hastings, he transforms a period reception room by simply moving a door, finishing off the transformation with teal Tolix style stools and the Shoreditch metal side chair.
In Wales, George designs a part medieval kitchen for an owner who doesn’t really like kitchens. He uses the Danish inspired Milton dining table in walnut to pull the look of the kitchen together. Over in hove, he tackles an awkward home extension with the use of the Harlow modern accent chair and the Bauhaus wooden chair in matte black.
George is flushed when he visits a 300-year-old house with too many loos. And down in South London, he tackles a 1930s bungalow with a tiny lounge that’s in desperate need of a clever design solution. Watch how George transforms these intriguing homes using the Isaac wooden armchair and matching Trinity dining chairs in both white and natural.
