This is a selection of images from some of David’s most recent design work, including several that have just been published in AD Italy and the Dubai and Lebanese editions of ELLE Decoration.
What does it feel like to spend time in a David Carter interior? This is our attempt to conjure up that experience. Oldich was a bar, restaurant and shop David designed for a client in Moscow. ‘Mad, extravagant and decadent’ was how Conde Nast Traveller described it. It made a lot of people very happy.
Some of the work presented here was completed over 20 years ago. The images reflect David’s ongoing love affair with bespoke finishes, and his fascination with colour and pattern. These he uses to create luxurious and playful backdrops for his clients and their friends to enjoy.
These are pictures of David’s ‘micro boutique hotel’ in East London. Despite only accommodating three guests, 40 Winks has become a global phenomenon, generating thousands of pages of press, and a string of accolades such as ‘the most beautiful small hotel in the world’ (German Vogue) and ‘the sexiest boutique hotel in London’ (Grazia).
