Elegant interior design firm comes to Siem Reap

Elegant interior design firm comes to Siem Reap

Beyond Interiors spruces up homes and hotels with stylish furniture and accessories

Interior designers Beyond Interiors – who have been sprucing up homes and businesses in Phnom Penh since 2008 – have now made the move to Siem Reap.

The creation of Australian expat Bronwyn Blue, the company creates its own furniture, furnishings and accessories as well as offering interior design services for commercial and residential properties.

To suit the Siem Reap market, the design team based here will include people with plenty of hotel experience, Blue said.

The showroom features a range of stylish and modular furniture, elegant wooden tables, chairs and shelving made of reclaimed wood, and magnificent glass vases.

“A lot of the style, and all of the skills, are Khmer, but it has a different edge,” said Blue. “It’s a lot more pared back and clean. There’s no ‘bling’, but the notion of crafting things out of what’s available comes from a resourcefulness that is very Cambodian.”

All the wood used in their furniture is reclaimed from old houses that Blue and her team discovered were being demolished.

“There’s something about working with something that’s been touched and used and lived in. And it’s very much of Cambodia, of course, but without having to use up a precious resource, which is something we push against.”

Beyond Interiors Siem Reap is located at #780 Group 16, Steung Thmei (next to Artisans d’Angkor). Tel: 070 357 337.
