Lyndon brings luxury to independent living

The luxury, quality and versatility of the seating and furniture from Lyndon by Boss Design is what helps makes Guinness Homes’ new Quayside apartments in Totnes, Devon, a much sought-after independent living development for the over fifty-fives.

Specified by leading interior design specialists, Devon Interiors based in Exeter, Quayside boasts an array of Lyndon’s seating and furniture throughout the development; from the reception, communal lounge, and circulation spaces, to the café, dining area, and the vibrant activity lounge. Bespoke pieces were also commissioned to encourage independence and provide support for the residents.

Lyndon’s timeless and elegant Luge armchairs bring a warm and inviting welcome to Quayside’s reception and main entrance. Setting the tone of exclusivity, they are upholstered in a green and grey fabric complemented by several coffee and side tables in a stylish Oak finish. In the communal lounge, a spacious and comfortable seating area features Lyndon’s Lysander sofas and armchairs upholstered in luxurious deep earthy tones, whilst relaxing Diana and Orten armchairs provide the necessary comfort and support for residents taking part in group tasks in the activity lounge.

In the dining and café area, Lyndon shows off its bespoke skills with a series of banquette seating. Upholstered in a stylish green accent colour, the seating was especially designed with the residents in mind. Lyndon Agent square dining tables complete with an Oak underframe provide a sublime dining space where residents can sit together to enjoy an evening meal, whilst green and grey Diana and Orten armchairs with oak frames and Agent bistro tables help create a more informal setting for coffee and lunch breaks in the café.

Commenting on the specification, Sophie Weeks, Interior Designer at Devon Interiors, said:

“We chose Lyndon by Boss Design furniture for this project due to the company’s expertise in adapting existing products to make them suitable for residents in independent living facilities. In addition, we have always been impressed by the fantastic quality of Lyndon’s products in previous projects, and wanted to bring this exceptional of quality and luxury to Quayside.”

Sophie adds:

“The commitment of the Guinness Partnership, Devon Interiors and Lyndon, is what drove this project to be the triumph that it is. We have no doubt that it will be one of this year’s award-winning schemes!”

Tim Armitt, Managing Director of Lyndon by Boss Design commented:

“Whilst it’s always important that the furniture creates a stunning aesthetic, it also has to meet the needs of the user. At Quayside, all of our furniture and seating provides the practicality, comfort, and support that is important for people of all ages.”

Guinness Homes’ Quayside development offers a diverse mix of Shared Ownership apartments. The complex features a café bistro, activity areas, and even a ‘pamper suite’ where residents can arrange haircuts, manicures and beauty treatments.
