Instant Classics: Celerie Kemble & Anna Burke

by Alex Ronan
A forever favourite thanks to their contemporary timeless vibe, we couldn't think of a better pair than Celerie Kemble and Anna Burke to give us the scoop on those perfect pieces that will never go out of style. As the respective founder and associate at Kemble Interiors, they have developed an arsenal of tried and true design essentials throughout their many projects (we've all drooled over their work in the pages of Elle DecorLonny and Architectural Digest). In this first instalment of Instant Classics, they share their go-to's with us:

Kemble Interiors' Instant Classics:

market-CD-05 De Gournay Wallpaper: Scenic wallpapers have been in fashion for a while now, but we're especially drawn now to the more organic designs.These papers are often used in dining rooms but we love using them in entry galleries too--when you enter a space you're completely enveloped. Available at Organic Designs
market-CD-07 Basketweave Tiles: Bathrooms should feel clean and classic. No one wants to put in a new tile floor after three years because it feels dated; so we're drawn to classic shapes and colours when it comes to flooring. A favourite is a cream and grey chevron pattern from Artistic Tile.
market-CD-02 Eero Saarinen Table: We have yet to find a project where we didn't want to put a Saarinen Table in the center of a client's kitchen. The shape makes seating easy and the marble top is clean and neutral. From $1879, DWR
market-CD-03 Serpentine Sofa: After years of custom commissions, Celerie designed this sofa for Henredon. It's classic, clean lined, sexy, and comfortable. The shape is perfect for rounding out a seating area. Available at Hendredon
market-CD-06 Christopher Spitzmiller Lamps: There is nothing like the rich, solid glamour of a gleaming Spitzmiller Lamp. Available in a rainbow of colours with different bases to choose from, the possibilities are endless. Available at, Christopher Spitzmiller
market-CD-01 Sisal Rugs: We love the neutral, organic feel of sisal in almost any room. Merida Meridian has tons of options. Layer a flat weave dhurrie or animal hide rug over sisal for extra softness. Sisal Rug, from $199, Williams Sonoma
market-CD-04 Aldo Tura Bar Cart: Aldo Tura makes the most amazing parchment covered Bar Carts and Accessories. We use them constantly. The colours are rich and luscious, so we're always scouring eBay for more. $1877, 1st Dibs
