 The close-knit team at Xava Interiors keeps a careful eye on both the budget and details to create space-saving living environments across the city

 
Remember the amount of care you took in scrapbooking your most treasured memories? This is the kind of heartfelt, heart-warming attention which Xava Interiors pays in the creation of its clients’ homes.
 
The team — director Cherry Chui; administrator Cecile Wong; art director Lacie Thorne; and Tamsin Thornburrow, interior designer — also recently discovered a special artwork-framing technique at Art Basel Hong Kong to bring to their worktables, when DIY experiments are conducted and ideas are exchanged. “When we talk about something as tactile as interior design, we keep this kind of portfolio not only to orient where we are going, but also where we have been,” says Thorne.
 
The intense pen-and-paper brainstorming is fundamental to Xava’s design process. Flipping through pages of mood boards with material samples and textile samples from shops both within and beyond the territory, clients are spoilt for choice. The team’s quest is to precisely interpret their clients’ personalities and desires — and just as much appreciated are those clients who “think outside the box and just go ahead” with Xava’s ideas.
