I want Candy!

Happy Monday! I found these images over the weekend when one of the employee's of London based design firm Candy & Candy sent me an email. I felt, firstly, that I must have been living under a rock not having heard of these guys before, and secondly, that perhaps I'd died and gone to heaven. The work this firm is doing is so amazing!

The design and property development firm was founded by the Candy brothers Nick and Christian (hence the name) when they were both in their twenties with just a ₤6,000 loan from their Grandmother. Less than ten years later, and several properties later, the Candy brothers are now developing the most expensive properties in the world, with clients that include Royalty, World Leaders and the Uber Rich. So rich are their clientele, in fact, that they claim to be above the worldwide recession. Having worked for the worlds wealthy elite for so long has provided the brothers a lifestyle that most of us only dream about. They live in Monaco (tax reasons), have several super yachts, and mix with the rich and famous on a daily basis. Nice work if you can get it! - I only hope they give me a call if they plan to open an office in Hong Kong! All kidding aside...I hope you enjoy these pics as much as I did.

As if the projects the staff of Candy & Candy get to work on aren't great enough...they also get to work in what I have to say is the most amazing looking office I've ever seen! Check out the pics I said guys, give me a ring if you need staff in Hong Kong!

Thanks Style Rumors!

M21 - I know! I almost fell off my chair when I first saw it. If that office was a man, I'd marry it.

Yes, they are great. They're developing a block of apartments in Knightsbridge, at the top of Sloane Street and Knightsbridge, with Hyde Park on the other side. I'm sure they will be stunning, and stunningly priced, even in this market.

... doesn't it look a bit boring???

Would love to add some of my photos to give it a personal touch.

Very beautiful and sophisticated, serene too.

Interesting comment about their clientele being above the global recession.
