About Make & Place

Make and Place was established by Johnson Naylor and M3 Design Development to provide a considered approach to the furnishing and decor of modern apartment buildings. We have a well established relationship, having collaborated on some of London’s most significant residential developments.

As many of the schemes were completed it became increasingly obvious to us that the crafted designs that are presented in the marketing suites and show apartments were not always something that the purchaser could easily achieve themselves.

We wanted to offer the homeowner the ability to achieve a curated, considered  and complementary interior that responds to the interior architecture of the space.

Working with some of the best furniture producers in Europe the collections feature a mix of classic, well known items and bespoke produced pieces designed specifically for the proportions and materials of each development.


Our Furniture Collections have been carefully curated to create distinct and considered interiors. Mindful of the layout of your apartment, our Furniture Collections are designed to ensure every item fits practically into your home.  

We believe that it is also important to provide the opportunity to select materials, fabrics, and also signature pieces of furniture that you may feel strongly about. From a curated framework of options we will work with you to define and refine your Collection.


For the final touch to your apartment, all Collections are available with the option of high quality everyday essentials, from a pillowcase to a set of kitchen knives and everything inbetween. Couple this with our home electrical range to ensure every detail is considered and your apartment is fitted ready for immediate occupancy.

Make and Place can also provide a tailored selection of decorative accessories including artwork, plants and soft furnishings to make your apartment a home.

Our curated range of curtains and blinds for window dressing will effortlessly complement your apartment.  We have considered requirements for sheer curtains, blackout blinds and home automation to offer the best bespoke solution for your needs.  Our unique knowledge of the interior architecture of your apartments allows us to provide seamless advice and installation.


Working in partnership with highly skilled artisans Make and Place produce a number of bespoke, limited edition pieces to further enhance your apartment. Designed with the proportions, materials and details of the building in mind, a limited number of pieces can feature in collections to give a unique and exclusive feel to your apartment. Items are limited to a small batch production produced with great care and attention to detail.


Working alongside property investors and developers including Helical Plc, Battersea Power Station Estates, Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company and Canary Wharf Group, Make and Place provide Premium and Essential Collections ensuring that we assist owner occupiers, investor purchasers and the build-to-rent market, often facilitating a turn key solution.

Each furniture Collection is meticulously planned and realised to fit practically into a living space, with every item chosen to optimise an interior.  Designed to add the final layer to luxury apartments, Make and Place furniture collections complement the interior architecture of some of London’s prime residential locations including Barts Square, Fenman House, Southbank Place and Battersea Power Station.
