International Property Awards: Best of British

An exclusive show apartment showcasing the best of British design, has been launched at Southbank Place’s Thirty Casson Square in London. The fully dressed show apartment located on the 27th floor, has been designed by boutique luxury interior design studio, Portia Fox.

The show apartment offers prospective purchasers the opportunity to view this stunning location on the banks of the Thames, looking out onto the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the City of London, surrounded by bespoke British made interior pieces.

Much of the furniture is designed in-house at Portia Fox; it delivers carefully crafted pieces with clever contemporary twists. Portia Fox has drawn on the heritage of the area, having been inspired by the former coal and dye works, timber yards and potteries based at Southbank Place and the furniture, artwork, and colour palette reflect this.


The bespoke pieces have all been handmade by British makers, illustrating the quality of craftsmanship available from across the UK in locations such as Dorset, Whitby, and Newcastle, to name a few.

The exquisite dining table has been crafted by a specialist maker in south west London, the bespoke leather upholstery on the striking kitchen stools has been printed in north London and the bespoke bedside tables in the master bedroom have been handmade by a cabinet maker based in Newcastle.  In addition to the furniture, much of the artwork has been sourced from British based artists.
