This nineteenth century industrial building in London's Vauxhall district was originally home to a handbag factory, then a photo studio, and then a workshop for Tom Dixon. It is now the home of renowned contemporary art gallerist (and former 20th Century French design specialist) David Gill.
Featuring white walls, iron beams, large windows, and concrete flooring, David Gill's home is in essence an extension of his gallery, housing an exceptional collection of art and design. A table and chairs by Charlotte Perriand is in the dining room, with porcelain sculptures are by Barnaby Barford. In the background on the wall is a large work by Christopher Wool, which compliments the large Virgin Mary sculpture in the foreground by Kendell Geers. In the living room is a 1930s Art Deco sofa in purple velvet by Eugène Printz. The painting is by Chantal Joffe. The glass and gold leaf coffee table is by Yves Klein. In the master bedroom is a work by Francesco Clemente, and the two nightstands are 1940s T.H Robsjohn-Gibbings. The table lamps are by Garouste and Bonetti. Anchored in the kitchen is a beautifully sculptural 2-arm wall light by Serge Mouille.
