Go your own way: The bespoke interiors ideas with a unique twist

Go your own way: The bespoke interiors ideas with a unique twist

In an age when people in New York, Dubai and Hong Kong carry the same handbag and drive the same car, the concept of bespoke has ascended to new heights. These companies and designers offer custom wares for your yacht, allowing you to swap out copycat for one-of-a-kind.

Urban Electric

Urban Electric’s custom lighting program is an interior designer’s best kept secret. The Charleston, SC, based manufacturer routinely turns out collaborations with some of the industry’s top talents, but creative co-operation isn’t reserved for top decorators. Within 48 hours of receiving a lighting concept, Urban Electric figures out how to engineer it, offers a quote for manufacture, and gives a lead time.

Tai Ping

Tai Ping, the master of the highest quality hand tufted carpets, recently launched a new yacht collection of rugs designed for outdoor use. The company has developed a fibre made of 100 per cent acrylic solution-dyed yarn that permits techniques normally reserved for interior fibres, resulting in hand-tufted outdoor carpets with the look and feel of luxury rugs.

Frette, the 157-year-old Italian company, has initiated a custom program that offers its entire collection of cotton varietals, linen and terry in a kaleidoscope of hues. Customers can send in their own shade and Frette will match it. The firm will also embellish finely embroidered bespoke bedding, towels and table linens with personal motifs.
