WOW!house at The Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, is a showcase of 17 rooms dressed by twenty Interior Designers, the Principal Bedroom being by Rayman Boozer of Apartment 48. Our Chandelier was selected by him in collaboration with Gabrielle Grubanovich for his Pillow Talk themed design.
The Showcase is an immersive and inspiring design experience. Created by world-class interior designers, working in collaboration with renowned makers and international design houses.
Whether you are a design professional, an individual with a passion for interior design or someone who is looking for ideas for an upcoming project, WOW!house will inspire, amaze and surprise.
A portion of each ticket price is donated to the charity Centrepoint, in aid of ending youth homelessness.
The Principal Bedroom Statement by Rayman Boozer:
“My design often emphasizes layers of color, pattern, and the juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary elements, and I’ve taken an abundance of inspiration from the bohemian stylings of 1960’s London. So, when invited to be a part of WOW!house, I was truly thrilled. For the inaugural outing, I chose to go romantic and a bit sexy. Inspired by the sensual imagery of the 1996 film, The Pillow Book, I envisioned a bedroom wrapped in Fromental silk, adorned with wild velvets, lush sateen bedding, and dotted with Asian influences.”
Rayman Boozer has enveloped his space in saturated shades of sapphire, ultramarine, azure blue, ruby red and accents of glistening gold.
Rayman Boozer, is the principal designer of Apartment 48 Interiors. After moving to New York, he opened a home furnishings store in Chelsea – Apartment 48 – which was designed to look like a real apartment. His success led him to be dubbed by Time Out as the “go-to designer for colour consulting”. He is a member of the AD100 and Elle Décor A-List, which recognises the top world designers.
Apartment 48 specialises in combining vibrant colours, exotic materials and contemporary furnishings to create spaces that feel optimistic, relaxed and effortless.

Henri Vian was a French bronzeur and fondeur working in Paris from c.1880 at 5 rue de la Thorigny. He specialised in the production of light fittings, decorative vases and bronze-mounted chimney pieces. His workmanship was so good that his pieces are often mistaken for much earlier work. Many of his designs related closely to those of the 18th Century. On his death in 1905, his wife carried on the business until the early 1920s. Later, his workshop was used by Picasso, and is now the Picasso museum.

We have been delighted to be part of WOW!house and look forward to further opportunities for collaboration projects in the future.
