ABOUT BIID members plus a guest are invited on a free private tour of THE APARTMENT, an exclusive space to elevate guest services at Bicester Village, designed by London Interior Design practice and BIID members, Carden Cunietti. THE APARTMENT, an exclusive new by-appointment-only space, offers a destination for more elevated and intimate occasions at Bicester Village. Designed by celebrated interior designers Carden Cunietti, guests can retreat in absolute comfort for private shopping consultations, personalised trunk shows or to rest after a long day of shopping. Carden Cunietti, who specialise in international luxury for a portfolio of private clients, rock royalty and A-list celebrities, have designed residential homes across the globe and one half of the team, Eleanora Cunietti, will be on hand to guide the guests through the space. Taking design inspiration from the Chiltern countryside and traditional English country manors, the team have fused nature’s colours and raw materials with textural fabrics against a restrained minimalism to create THE APARTMENT. Eleanora will detail each room design and its features, including working marble fireplaces, wood and antique mirror panelled wall frames, oiled oak herringbone flooring, and upholstery in an array of linens and velvets. THE APARTMENT consists of three lounges, each with a dressing room decorated with customised de Gournay wallpaper and the glamourous washrooms are decorated in custom-made Pyrolave glazed tiles with specially designed brass basin stands and antique mirrors. International art works by female artists feature throughout and include two specially commissioned oil paintings by London-born artist, Amy Moseley and fashion photographs by Gia Coppola and Isabelle Van Zeijl. The design team felt it was vital to create a space of warm, home-like, tactile minimalism, incorporating innovations and experimentation in line with the current trend for pared-back luxe. As Eleanora Cunietti says, “Carden Cunietti are extremely proud to have been selected as the designers of THE APARTMENT, where we have brought our experience of residential interior design to Bicester Village to create an elegant country house interior where you will be so comfortable you will never want to leave!” DETAILS The tour will start at 10am sharp, please meet at the Visitor Centre at 9:45am, as located on this map, and a member of the BIID team will be there to take you to THE APARTMENT as a group. The tour will last approximately 1 hour and then you will be free to explore the village at your own leisure and do a spot of Christmas shopping.
