Good Design is Good Business

Icon Interiors is delighted to announce that their client Wasing Estate, Aldermaston, Berkshire, was recently voted Regional Winner of the South of England, Countryside Alliance Award for Best Rural Enterprise 2009. Nicknamed the “Rural Oscars”, the Countryside Alliance runs the competition in response to the growing awareness that putting money into the local economy is critical to the fabric of rural life. Tracy Leach of Icon Interiors worked with the owner of Wasing Estate to source antique furniture from Bali, which ensures this historic wedding and conference venue offers beautifully styled reception barns and accommodation.

Completing the interior design of Wasing Park, Aldermaston in July 2008 with its eclectic mix of Balinese and colonial-style furniture, has ensured that this wedding and conference centre is successfully taking bookings as far as 2010 and even 2011.

Icon Interiors worked closely with the owner of Wasing Park, Joshua Dugdale, to source authentic Balinese furniture, by visiting companies in Denpasar, Bali and scouring antique warehouses in the foot hills around the capital. The furniture arrived in the UK by containers, and the Icon team managed to meet a tight deadline and have the 11 bedroom hotel ready for its first wedding in July 2008.

“Visiting Bali with the hotel owner was a wonderful opportunity to ensure Icon Interiors exactly met the client’s vision for his hotel. As his family estate, Mr Dugdale was very keen to respect the traditional nature of the estate buildings, but also to add an eclectic touch by using Balinese artefacts to personalise each bedroom” explains Tracy Leach, Interior Designer at Icon Interiors.
