Rabih Hage is nothing short of a revolutionary in design, and has developed a concept he calls ‘rough luxe’ – building a space using the combination of old and new materials. ‘It’s a kind of urban archaeology,’ he told Quartz recently. Former winner of the Andrew Martin Interior Designer of the Year, Hage founded his London studio in 2011, and is known for his sleek, ultra-modern designs, which include New York and London townhouses and chateaux in France. His 2008 Rough Luxe Hotel work in London arguably triggered a global design movement towards a complex mix of opulent wallpaper and modern art. In 2016, he designed a complex double basement extension in a 19th century Victorian style residential property in The Boltons.
