THE STUDIO

 
 

Lomax & Chi is a London based luxury Interior Design House.

Our approach to design is contemporary and timeless, with an exacting eye for the detail.  We offer a full design service from concept to completion.

Established in 2016 by Jennie Trethewy & Chi Chi Baber, Lomax & Chi is a new creative venture for both designers. With over 25 years combined experience in the industry, both Jennie & Chi Chi come with a wealth of knowledge and an impressive client list, which includes The Dorchester Collection, Raffles Hotels, Hilton Hotels, and developers Berkeley Homes, Mount Anvil and Fabrica.  

 

 
 
 

Previous projects range from the Interior design of luxury hotels such as The Waldorf Astoria Caledonian - Edinburgh, to private residential properties, commercial spaces and most recently a creative office space in North London. For each of these projects, their services included the Interior architecture and layout design,  bespoke design and management of external craftsmen, lighting layouts and all FF&E interior styling, specification, procurement and installation.

Whether a luxury hotel, private residence, restaurant or a commercial office space, Lomax & Chi aim to create smart and elegant design solutions for their clients. Working with specialist manufacturers, craftsmen, suppliers and artisans, their team are able to deliver totally unique and tailored projects. This collaborative and personal approach is what they pride themselves on. 

When they’re not working, Jennie & Chi Chi both enjoy spending time with their young families. They also make time to visit industry events and exhibitions for on-going research and inspiration.
