The Story Behind Kassavello 3rd December 2019 | IN RESIDENTIAL DESIGN | BY SBID

Sponsors of the SBID International Design Awards for the Residential House Under £1M category, Kassavello supply curated and bespoke luxury furnishing solutions for interior designers. The Director and founder, Ana Azevedo shares insight into how they work directly with designers to help them source the right furnishings for their projects.

What are the origins of your brand?
Launched in 2015, myself and Renata Teixeira spotted the opportunity to bring high quality, handcrafted yet fairly-priced Portuguese furniture to the UK market. Kassavello has since become a luxury furniture design atelier dually based in both England and Portugal. Our roots are firmly entwined with Portuguese craftsmanship and artisanal design and, over time, the business has organically grown to encompass two complementary areas of expertise: Curated products from elite brands and Bespoke furniture production.

How do you work with interior designers?
We offer a high-end, bespoke furniture design service for interior designers and architects that includes complex finishes and detailing. Our extensive portfolio of manufacturers have been carefully selected for their quality, reliability and craftsmanship and we frequently use different artisans to deliver individual elements of one piece to guarantee the highest possible standards of workmanship.

We also have an extensive portfolio of curated products from elite brands and often work closely with our clients to select items for their projects. Our services range from producing all technical drawings for bespoke projects, to personally organising and supervising shipping and installation.

What are the latest trends you’ve noticed in your client’s requests?

More recently, we are noticing that organic shapes and textured materials are increasing in popularity among our clients. Also, the desire to use natural materials like cane, stone and brass is growing significantly.

Why did you want to become a sponsor for the SBID Awards?

We wanted to sponsor the SBID Awards because it’s a very prestigious event that celebrates design and serves as a fantastic opportunity to network within our target market.

Sponsorship for the SBID International Design Awards 2020 is now open.
