Sir Paul Smith designed interior for Maggie's Nottingham Cancer caring centre.

Corporate Social Responsibility of Paul Smith, CSR of Paul SmithCancer charity Maggie's, now in its 15th year with as many locations, provides free practical, emotional and psychological support for anyone affected by cancer along with their family, friends and careers.

Paul Smith has designed an environment which complements the programme of care and support offered by Maggie's. Paul has carefully combined a selected mix of classic and iconic furniture items with interesting ornamental pieces in an array of textures, finishes all featuring quirky details synonymous with Paul Smith.

On designing interior for cancer caring centers, Paul Smith quoted "I am delighted to be involved in creating this centre for people living with cancer and their family and friends. It will be a great resource for everyone and a fantastic new addition to the city. Piers Gough is an incredible architect and it has been a joy to work together on the design. I wanted the interior to be somewhere calm, warm and restful; a place where visitors could go to have time to think and have a cup of tea."

The building consists of a large kitchen, two sitting rooms, a library, an office, three smaller therapy rooms and a larger room which can be divided in two for tai chi, yoga or meetings. Decoration and design follows the purpose of the centre's rooms and spaces.

Key design details include; a natural wood flooring pattern which mirrors that of the building’s roof; Ercol butterfly chairs painted in bright red, yellow and orange; Fired Earth tiling; Jonathan Adler dog sculptures and subtle lighting created by 1950's table lamps and freestanding tripod lights.

The centre has a number of Paul Smith home items ranging from tapestry wall hangings, colourful rugs, vintage prints, drawings and Maharam exaggerated plaid fabrics. Paul Smith Melrose chairs are covered in floral printed fabric taken from a photograph captured by Sir Paul at the Chelsea Flower Show.
