Marquis HQO assembled refined modern pieces to create a sophisticated yet comfortable and familiar home.

The contract design services arm under Design Capital, Marquis HQO, has completed projects of formidable range and complexity, making for itself an indelible name in procuring furniture and accessories, and providing custom manufacturing services as specified by select clients. The team’s diverse portfolio covers luxury residential homes and apartments, commercial and public spaces, and special projects, such as the manufacture of public seating at Jewel Changi Airport. 

For one of its latest residential projects –furnishing of a luxury good class bungalow at Holland Park – Marquis HQO once again delivered uncompromising service and refined knowledge of luxury interiors.

The client’s brief was pretty straightforward – to furnish the entire residence with modern and luxurious furniture, and to style it to reflect its modern, luxurious surroundings.



The Marquis HQO team, in collaboration with interior design consultant, TJ Studio, put together an interior anchored by pieces in shades of gray. This immediately brought a neutral palette that worked well with the stark white walls and the assemblage of artworks and personal possessions of the client. The team selected several new and classic pieces from Minotti, ranging from sofas to armchairs and center tables.

Minotti’s Freeman sofa, upholstered in a gray fabric and set with loose cushions for color and texture, was chosen as an anchor piece for the living room. It is paired with a couple of Minotti Leslie armchair whose seats are upholstered in fabric and the shell in leather. The armchairs’ legs are molded cast aluminum in painted pewter finish. 

Another piece of interest is the Minotti Jacob coffee table with Calacatta marble top and legs in solid brushed oak in black finish. Placed next to it is the Minotti Haring occasional table in satin metal, a veritable sculpture assembled with just three laser-cut pieces. 

At the center of entertainment room is a Sullivan coffee table whose rounded out triangular top is reminiscent of
the elements in Alexander Calder’s mobiles. In this particular version, the top is finished in Pedulo walnut and the underside in an exclusive pewter color created by
Minotti Italy. 

The team paired it with two low Davis poufs in round and square. The compact poufs are filled with goose down and covered in saddle hide. Davies poufs come in different sizes, including the Davis ‘Drum’ with a tapered middle and saddle-hide top. The poufs stand on a discreet metal feet in black nickel finish.

Without neglecting any space, Marquis HQO also used a pair of Minotti Aston Cord armchairs in the poolside terrace. Made for outdoor use, the Aston Cord armchair comes with a metal frame that has been fortified with sand blasting, a coat of zinc primer and an exterior coat of polyester powder. Its seat, back and armrests are covered in braided Taslan polypropylene. The cushion seat and back are padded with high resilience polyurethane foam.
