London-​based designer Philip Vergeylen has developed a thriving interiors design firm to complement Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam Ltd, the furnishings company purchased in 1995 by his romantic and business partner, the Italian-born Moschino, from the legendary interior decorator. In this St. John’s Wood house, there certainly was a broad canvas to work with.

A 19th-century English flamed-mahogany table stands in the entry hall. The Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam bench is in a Turnell & Gigon velvet, the custom doors have Beardmore hardware, and the flooring combines Carrara and Nero Marquina marbles.

Because Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam has deep expertise in custom work as well as its own sumptuous line of furniture and objects, Philip Vergeylen is able to freely mix antiques with modernist—even Brutalist—pieces to create a layered tapestry.
