Ruslan Baginskiy is a famous Ukrainian milliner whose headwear brand is known all over the world. The Baginskiy Showroom is located in Kyiv, Ukraine, at 33 Pushkinska Street in a historical building built 1895-1896. It was important to undertake a renovation of the store, and Ruslan approached the RinaLovko studio for the project.
Whilst Ruslan Baginskiy's team is originally from Lviv, the cultural capital of western Ukraine, they live and work in Kyiv, and consider Paris their "third" home. This formed the starting point of the project for the client - to combine the atmosphere of these amazing cities and to transfer it to the project space. Thus, as is typical in European cities, it was decided to to create a showroom in the style of a designer residential apartment.
To the left of the entrance hall is the kitchen, storage and meeting room. This room is designed for comfortable communication between VIP-clients and Ruslan's team. In the centre of the room attention is drawn to a custom-made elegant wooden chandelier «Spirits» by Vasya Grublyak. Along the wall there is a console and shelf for accessories and goods from seasonal collections.
We painted the shelves and walls in ash tint.
The room we worked with was filled with history. To retain the old time we kept the existing molding and invited an artist to enhance its features by drawing the depth of the patterns' shadows and produce a worn-out effect. The inherited parquet floor was restored and covered with a transparent lacquer. We emphasised the arched windows with smoothing corners as it was done in the past.
