CREATE THE AMBIENCE OF AN 15C. PALAZZO HOTEL



BY NICKY SUMMER


Wherever we travel, we find that the decor in the most exclusive locations all feature handcrafted furnishings that have been built to stand the test of time; this is particularly so in the luxury hotels of Venice, Italy, where unique, traditional pieces lend an established air to the property. Often our residential interiors clients request the exact look and vibe of a luxury hotel replicated in their own home, wherever it’s located – the beds, dressing area, seating – so Jamie Cooper is the first person we’d call…



Jamie is the proprietor and MD at Titchmarsh & Goodwin, a unique high-end cabinet maker specialising in freestanding furnishings; founded back in 1920 by Gordon Goodwin and Lawrence Titchmarsh, the company is known best in the industry simply as ‘T&G’ and is recognised in recent years for furnishing properties of historical importance including the bedrooms of Adare Manor in Ireland (as seen in the image at the very top of the page and two images below) – a major project that kept the company busy for over twelve months. Jamie works directly with interiors designers and those who contact the company via the website, thus making the experience a personal one for both parties. Titchmarsh & Goodwin will be exhibiting at Decorex at Olympia in 2023.



We offer the designer the opportunity to create a unique, bespoke piece with meticulous detail and a knowledge gleaned from over one hundred years of furniture making; we also have an extraordinary archive of traditional furniture designs for designers to view. Oak, walnut, cherry and mahogany are currently the most popular materials…”

I consider myself a bit of an authority on Venice, visiting year after year and having stayed in some of the most notable palazzo hotels – ‘The Danieli’, ‘Ca Maria Adele’ and ‘Ca Sagredo’ on the Grand Canal being amongst them. I find travel is crucial for the interiors side of my business and I often draw inspiration for my projects from the traditional furnishings and rich natural colours used in the decor. This palette most often reflects the terracotta, peach and ochre colours of the buildings plus the cloudy green of the canals – which in fact influenced the colour of the glass of my own label ‘VENICE – palazzo’ scented candle in the travel collection by Nicky Summer Bougie…”
