Francone Bespoke Taps is lucky enough to work with some stellar interior designers who turn our products into something that is truly a masterpiece. Welcome to Insider Interviews, our series where we chat to design experts about their inspiration, unique style and why they choose Francone Bespoke Taps.
In this edition of the series, we sat down with Anahita Rigby, a London-based international interior and architectural designer. Anahita’s design philosophy is to create beautiful, timeless and elegant spaces for her clients. We believe she does just that, while still creating spaces that remain personal and livable.
Can you tell us about your journey as an interior designer so far?
I started my studio just over 2 years ago and come from an architectural background. I studied my Undergrad and Masters in Architecture in London and then moved to Hong Kong for 5 years. I worked on a 32 storey tower in HK and was focusing on the interiors which is where I realised the vast majority of people's lives were spent indoors.
How would you describe your style?
I am a bit if a traditionalist at heart. I love all design styles and appreciate beauty in its many forms, but one thing I like to bring to projects if possible is a timelessness. I like my projects to be comfortable and elegant.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Everywhere! I find people are the most inspiring of all, and I love designing for different people, as they all have their own special requirements which makes each project individual.
How did you find out about Francone Bespoke Taps originally?
I was scouring the internet for the perfect brass taps that fitted with the traditional and timeless aspect of the project and came across you!
What do you like about Francone Bespoke Taps products?
Friendly to deal with, if ever there were any issues or enquiries they were dealt with efficiently and effectively. I also love the range of finishes the taps come in, unlacquered brass is my favourite.
What advice would you give to those struggling to define their own interior style?
There are no right or wrongs, if you gather enough of what you love you will start to see your own unique style emerge.
If you don’t mind us asking, what are you working on at the moment? Or anything exciting in the works?
Yes! Many exciting things at the moment, some are top secret, but I am currently finishing a house in Kensington and mid way through a country house in Farnham.
