When Mark Hughes, a cosmetic dentist, decided to purchase a three bedroom flat in a converted Victorian primary school in Battersea, he called on London interior designer Christopher Prain.  Prain had decorated Hughes' previous home in the same building and both of his dental offices.

Because Hughes loves black, so much of the flat was monochromatic, with touches of navy, gray, mahogany and taupe.  Unique to the home is the chandelier/mobile above the dining room table, the staircase and its gray glass balustrade, and the black stained and polished hardwood floors.

The dining table is an Eero, the dining chairs are Cappellini, and the sofa is by Mary Fox Linton. The cabinetry is silver birch.

Because there is so much modern furniture in the home, Prain covered the chairs in a stripe and added two mirrors.  ENJOY!
