A visual feast for you today as this Airstream is really starting to take shape, demonstrating the versatility of the design team here at ARC. If the customer wants minimalist, we can do minimalist – or if they want something bright and bold and inspired by iconic design, we can do that too!

This client wants to stand out from the crowd with a retro style interior which has been inspired by the colours of a lava lamp. This is the Airstream with the starry ceiling which I have mentioned in previous posts. It’s also going to have a cocktail cabinet and a periscope. At the moment Darren and the team are busy fitting the stereo and the dazzling purple and orange cabinets and drawers with retractable handles – take a look at all of these lovely pics to see how it’s coming along:
