The creative driving force behind Budak’s new showroom is Chief Designer Metin Macit, who is known worldwide for his artful blending of ornate English craftsmanship with contemporary styles, having designed furniture for Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
The SW11 showroom, headed by Dogan Cagatay in partnership with CEO Mustafa Tasar, already boasts a clientele list including Sheraton Hotels, Savoy Theatre, Hampton Court Palace, GlaxoSmithKline, Bobbi Brown, Soho House, Hubert Zandberg and Morgan Stanley.
“London has a strong design heritage and is a vibrant city that combines contemporary and traditional aesthetics – so it fits the Budak approach perfectly. We also already have a large number of clients in the UK so it made sense to open a showroom here to better serve them – and to introduce Metin’s craftsmanship to a wider UK audience,” explained Dogan Cagatay.
Each of Budak London’s pieces – from bespoke furniture including cabinets, tables, chairs, kitchen islands, to panels, coving, sculptures, and one-off timeless pieces – has been exquisitely designed and hand-crafted with baroque detail that indulges the artistic eye.
The London showroom is at 171 St Johns Hill, London SW11 1TQ.
