This Airstream project is finished and has just had an expert shoot with our fabulous photographer, Jeremy Phillips.
The interior design for this Airstream project was inspired by the Ralph Lauren Corral Canyon Collection and ARC designer Kathy was in her element designing and sourcing the materials for the interior. You may have seen some shots of this Airstrream as a work-in-progress on our blog as we laminated the interior with that exquisitely patterned pippy oak which compliments the rest of the interior perfectly with a comfortable, American home feel.
We’ve been really busy in the workshop with a lot of new projects being started. We’ve also finished a couple of great Airstreams for clients and sent them off – but we haven’t had time for one of our classy photo shoots of any of our finished work. We are planning some soon; but in the meantime here are some shots of an Airstream we refitted as a corporate vehicle for Senergy, an oil company who take it around Europe to various events:
Following on from yesterday’s post, here you can see that the Flying Cloud Airstream has arrived at her new home. The garden is being landscaped around the Airstream and we will have a photoshoot of it in situ in September, so watch this space!

This week we received some great feedback from one of our clients – Roubi L’Roubi, owner of the Huntsman Brand – the bespoke Savile Row tailors for whom we recently created two Huntsman-themed shooting lodges:
“As owners of Huntsman, we are used to our clients commissioning totally bespoke pieces. So when it came to adding two bedrooms to our country house, we thought of a bespoke commission of a legendary airstream, and chose Kathy and the ARC Airstreams team after seeing some photos on the internet of how they’d translated someone’s dream into a rolling room. And we wanted a rolling one bedroom shooting lodge for us. Huntsman specialise in bespoke tweeds to make totally custom shooting suits and other garments, so there was only a short distance to cross to use those as a backdrop for the decor. We specified the function, i.e. we’ll never cook or eat in the Airstream – so no need for kitchen or dining room – but it would need room for a cloakroom where wet clothes brought back from a day’s shooting could be hung to dry. We choose earth tones contrasted with a moorland purple tweeds – emphasising different moods for the two rooms; and let the ARC team come up with suggestions for other wall and floor coverings, wood panelling and built in furniture. We let the team choose those to match or contrast with our tweeds in full trust in their knowhow, and were delighted to receive mood boards by return of mail, much alike those we do when thinking about our collections. We totally took in their suggestions, we then added black forest carvings and antlers to complete the look.
“The experience of designing the airstream together was a wonderful collaboration, and an extension of our bespoke practice into a new territory! We love the Airstreams so much that whereas they started out as extra rooms for guests, they will probably end up touring Scotland with us next summer!”
We are very lucky to have some wonderful clients here at ARC Airstreams. A few weeks ago we were treated to a fantastic day out at Goodwood with Scott McCallum from Avian, courtesy of our corporate Airstream clients Senergy. Here’s a pic of Scott and his son and some of the fabulous vintage racing cars on the track.
In other news, two of our clients are competing in the Clipper Race challenge – Sue Fontannaz of Origin Wine, owner of the Lava Lamp Airstream is on board right now on the Invest Africa yacht with skipper Rich Gould and Scott is participating in a different leg of the challenge later on this year.
