Everybody has a story to tell, our homes, where we shop and where we eat express and inform part of that story. After Nine create interiors which help individuals and brands unlock that story and create wow moments that stick with people.
We start every project by exploring and researching you or your brand and market, creating an initial strategy which will holistically answer your brief. We spend time getting to know you to build an open and honest relationship.
The design process is split into three clear stages, concept, development and detailed design. The concept stage involves creating mood boards, sourcing furniture, lighting and samples. Following sign off, visuals are created. The final stage is detailed drawings. We work closely with clients every step of the way from the initial mood board to the final detailed design, co-creation is key.
We have a great love for travel and curating product which has led us to launch an online store which concentrates on celebrating the craftsmanship by artists and designers based in North and West Africa, as well as featuring products picked up from our travels beyond Africa.
We believe that the story of African craft is so rich that it deserves to be told. The store will celebrate the craftsmanship of the artisans and makers from Africa, We want conversations of Africa to acknowledge the level of design talent the continent has to offer, which often gets overlooked in favour of European design.
As much as we love grey, linen and marble there will be none of that in this store. It will be full of colour, pattern and stories of our travels and people We've connected with. We want everybody to own a piece of craft that is full of life and brighten up their homes.
