Sera gives us a lesson in seductive interiors. You may be familiar with the breath-taking interior designer Sera Hersham-Loftus otherwise known as Sera of London; her pop-up shop described as ‘the most beautiful shop in London’ by Vogue.
Her distinctly signature boho style has caught the eye of countless celebrities, including Kate Moss, David Attenborough, Courtney Love, Yoko Ono, Eliza Dolittle, and Twiggy, to name a few. Sera’s clientele often lead demanding lifestyles and request that their spaces are transformed into a sanctuary away from the stresses of the outside world.
Sera of London is an exotic and decadent boutique exhibiting sensual and seductive elegant tastes in room designs and decorative accessories. Her style is hard to categorise. Sophisticated bohemian comes close; luscious dreamscapes full of beautiful textiles, leafy plants, gorgeous artworks, and vintage finds - delicious and utterly unique.
Sera is an expert at uncovering distinctive items from markets and defying pretentious designs that leave no room for comfortable, free-spirited living. She designs with the actuality of a space to be lived in and enjoyed.
We have carefully hand-selected three Persian rugs from our Vintage and Antique rug collection, that we think marry perfectly with the Sera of London aesthetic.
