historic tenement houses

Tarnowski Division – classical interior design projects, designing stylish interiors, interior design projects in historic tenement houses, classical interiors, stylish interiors, elegant interiors.

Working on stylish interior design projects is a great pleasure, but it comes with a great responsibility. This responsibility involves knowledge of historical motifs, understanding of art styles, their main representatives and most significant accomplishments within a given style. Clearly, different knowledge is required for designing classical neobaroque interiors, Art Nouveau interiors, or interiors in the style of late 1930s.

The goal always remains to preserve the authenticity of the interior that we are designing. Studying historical styles also gives us the necessary knowledge about decorative techniques used to create beautiful objects. Collaboration with heritage conservators, artists and enthusiasts who cultivate traditional forms of craftsmanship guarantees that the stylish interiors we design will be treated with respect, will be credible, and consistent with the style we love.

The project we present is a stylish interior design for an apartment located in a Warsaw townhouse built in 1908. According to the recommendations of the heritage conservator, we were obliged to maintain the functional layout of the enfilade. Additionally, we had to recreate the original but heavily damaged and partially lost valuable interior decoration elements. These include: inlaid parquet floors, facets and rosettes, columns, doors, and the supraports placed above them. The style of this interior is quite typical for that time and consists of a blend of neobaroque and classicist patterns in line with the middle-class tastes of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as trendy motifs directly referring to the Art Nouveau style. We wouldn’t be ourselves if we didn’t add something unique to this classic interior design

In the living room, a decorative stripe runs along the facets – it is a painted frieze made in the old technique of egg tempera with a motif taken from the historic stucco work found in this stylish interior. A similar looping theme appears on the carpentry elements – window shutters and on the side panels of the glass doors separating the living room from the dining room. Beautiful sofas and lamps complement this classic interior. They are produced and sold by Atelier 1925 specializing in furniture and lighting that match many beautiful stylish interiors.
