Studio

Gunter & Co interiors specialises in large scale new build, refurbishment & interior decoration projects in the UK and Globally. With a team of experienced and creative designers we aim to bring unique aesthetics and creative ideas into the design process. With years of industry experience we have access to an extensive network of the most accomplished craftsmen and suppliers across the UK and the continent.

Our Founder & Creative Director, Irene Gunter,  oversees the design for each one of  our clients alongside a team of designers who manage the day to day implementation of the project. We aim to provide our clients with outstanding interiors and service to match their aspirations.
Whether it be a prime commercial project or luxurious private client residence, our team of interior designers, interior architects, and project managers works tirelessly to make sure each design fits seamlessly into our clients’ lives.

Interior Design

Gunter & Co places the aspirations and lifestyle of our clients at the heart of the Interior Design process; we believe designs are successful only if clients recognize their vision in our work. Every project is approached with the belief that beautiful interiors are not bound by a single aesthetic. Our team creates meticulously curated, tailored spaces; introducing unexpected elements, natural textures and custom pieces to complement the clients’ brief. Our designers have extensive experience in all forms of design and are adept at dealing creatively with budget and time constraints. We work with a select number of artisans and manufacturers to create bespoke pieces ranging from furniture and ironmongery to fabrics and wallpapers.

Throughout the creative process, clients are presented with extensive concept presentations, allowing them to understand each aspect of the design. This includes design sketches, furniture floorplans, sample boards or CGIs. Once the concept is established the design team will explore each individual element in detail and transform the scheme into reality.

With our studio at the heart of the Chelsea design quarter we are ideally located to source outstanding pieces from British and International suppliers. We maintain personal relationships with manufacturers, artisans, art galleries and antique dealers to allow us to share the most up-to-date knowledge with our clients and deliver truly beautiful bespoke interiors.

Interior Architecture

Gunter & Co takes a holistic approach to each project, ensuring every detail of the brief is explored and implemented into a creative, cohesive scheme. Our architectural design team works collectively on every project to enhance the available space; focusing on achieving the perfect marriage between our clients’ aspirations and our signature aesthetics. At the heart of every scheme is our passion for purity of materials, understated luxury and custom design details.

To deliver exceptional service to our clients we work collaboratively with leading architects, consultants and artisans coordinating the seamless execution across all facets of the construction process. The team creates detailed design documentation and drawings to allow a seamless interpretation by the on-site construction team featuring our bespoke joinery, finishes and lighting designs. This enables us to tailor each individual aspect to complement and enhance the overall design.

Our team has extensive experience in fields ranging from structural aspects and heritage matters through to state-of-the-art AV, lighting and security systems. Our extensive industry network ensures we keep up to date with the newest technologies and construction techniques, allowing us to serve our clients with the best professional advice.

Project Management

Our Project Managers are essential to the successful execution of our projects. From the concept stage, through tendering, construction, installation and handover our team takes on the crucial responsibility of coordination across the consultants, contractors and artisans involved. Foremost our project managers ensure that each project is delivered on time and on budget. The assigned project manager will be the primary point of contact for our client and provide tailored regular updates on the project. This typically includes budgeting, planning, statutory approvals and structural considerations as well as any other client requirements.
With extensive experience of the construction industry our team is able to forestall or circumvent complications that arise on construction projects of any scale, and focuses on guiding our clients through the complex planning and approvals process.  Our project managers perform extensive site visits to ensure the design is executed to our high standards and to resolve any logistical issues that could occur.
On completion clients are presented with a comprehensive operations, maintenance and health & safety manual to their home. Thanks to their extensive knowledge of each assignment our project managers remain on call to our clients and can assist with arranging repairs, maintenance or replacement purchases. We pride ourselves in the many long-standing relationships and the repeat business which our service generates.

Over the last decade Irene Gunter has built a career amongst Britain’s leading Interior Designers. A background in Art History, love for architecture and design, and a meticulous eye for detail made Irene a natural fit for the world of interiors.

After attending London’s prestigious Inchbald School of Design, Irene developed her own refined  aesthetic working for some of London’s most prestigious  studios. In 2014 she founded her studio to share her own vision with our clients; focusing on purity of materials, understated luxury and custom design details. This has allowed Irene to work on a wide range of projects anywhere from Grade II listed country estates to modern penthouse apartments in One Hyde Park.
Irene’s use of fabrics, textures, and colours are reflective of each property’s architecture and often draw upon Irene’s love for natural materials and her desire to create a feeling of comfort, warmth, and sophistication when her clients enter their home. Irene believes interior design should complement and enhance the way clients live in their home.
A love of travel has also allowed Irene to discover and experiment with different design traditions from around the world to create an aesthetic that is reflective of each client’s lifestyle.
