Beckett Contemporary Kitchen Interior

Richard Benson

January 11, 2024 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop, ZBrush / by Richard Benson

Working closely with one of our US cabinetry clients we crafted this contemporary kitchen interior, blending traditional charm with a clean, minimalist vibe. Our team of interior designers have become experts tailoring bespoke kitchens for both the US and UK markets ensuring that the kitchens we create resonate with the target market and encapsulate the brand’s unique style. They elected to have a significant number of close-up cameo images created too, which we love as it allows us to pack in the details and highlight the unique, hidden features that would otherwise go unseen.

As usual, we used 3DSMax for the majority of the scene with some detailed models tweaked in Zbrush. Rendered in Corona with image composition in Blackmagic Fusion. Final colour accuracy and adding the external scene was completed in Photoshop.

Arrington Shell Kitchen Interior

Richard Benson

January 11, 2024 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop, ZBrush / by Richard Benson

It has been a little while since our last post, but here’s one of our recent favourite interiors crafted for one of our kitchen clients. They wanted to showcase their cabinetry in more spaces than just the kitchen area, which allowed us to get creative with the brief and build a whole area to spend quality time with the family whilst still maintaining a contemporary luxury aesthetic.

Our vision for the interior was to create an open plan kitchen and living space connected with the outdoors, giving a greater impression of space. Our designers used expansive floor-to-ceiling windows to flood the space with natural light. Modern furniture with organic textures create a cohesive ambiance that blends home comforts with the tranquility of nature, inviting the natural beauty inside.

Forest Green Shaker-Style Bedroom Interior

Richard Benson

January 11, 2024 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop, ZBrush / by Richard Benson

Here’s a recent bedroom interior from team Pikcells 🙂
We matched our clients new forest green Shaker-style furniture and cabinetry with the walls colour, to give this bedroom space a sleek sophisticated look. Our interior designers initially produced a flat-lay image which showcases all the elements and the colour combination they wanted to incorporate, which we’ve included alongside the interiors. We’re finding that they’re really useful to communicate the design to clients before producing a full interior (as well as looking great in brochures).
From the luxurious bedding to the intricate details of the furnishings, our 3D team have paid close attention to all the details making this bedroom both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Harbone Graphite Apartment Kitchen Interior

Richard Benson

January 11, 2024 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop, ZBrush / by Richard Benson

Here’s some of our recent images of a luxury apartment kitchen that our team design & created. The interior designers carefully curated every detail of this space, from the cleverly designed banquet seating, which has been cut-out in the breakfast bar area to save space – to the integrated drinks cabinet and bar area, perfect for entertaining guests. The client wanted to use graphite grey cabinetry, which we paired with a muted palette of organic beige textures creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. An abstract backsplash using geometric, monochrome cut tiles adds a bold eye-catching feature. The use of 3D was perfect for this client’s brochures and we could ensure that they were completely satisfied with the end result.
We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed creating them!

Swift Open Office Spance

Richard Benson

January 11, 2024 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop / by Richard Benson

To display the countless applications and functionality of our clients melamine-faced wood-boards we designed and created this open plan office space. Our interior designer experts were given greater creative freedom to produce conceptual interiors that would bring the client’s vision to life, highlighting the aesthetic and practical qualities of their engineered boards.

To kickstart the design process, team crafted 3D flat-lay images of all the textures and color combinations that would be used in the final design. To elevate the visuals, they added a range of props and elements that would be incorporated in the final interior design.
