Combining exceptional design, sophistication and the heritage of a prestigious neighbourhood, The Address Siam-Ratchathewi sets a new benchmark for luxurious, high-rise residence for majestic living.
When it comes to lifestyle choices, ML Songlak “Fame” Svasti settles for nothing but the best. Whether its fashion, furniture or fine art, her exquisite sense of style and eye for detail helps her curate unique products that reflect her personality. “I love one-of-a-kind pieces, especially if it is handcrafted or made by Thai artisans. From our distinct design characteristics to the production process and meticulous craftsmanship, Thai products can be considered as haute art,” Fame explains.
Fame integrates her passion and knowledge for local design and craftsmanship into her professional life as well. She serves as a member of the board of directors and the chief marketing officer of Sirivannavari Bangkok, well-known for incorporating Thai textiles and handicrafts with contemporary design.
Even though she shuttles between various roles and duties, Fame always incorporates Thai fabrics into her modern-day lifestyle. “I wear Thai fabric on a daily basis. At Sirivannavari Bangkok we also incorporate Thai fabrics into every collection,” she informs.
It is evident that Fame’s love for Thai textiles is more than just a fashion statement. “I see it as a way to support Thai people, it’s a way for us to showcase our craftsmanship,” she says with pride. Further adding, “Thai fabrics are unique in their appearance and can be worn in many elegant, stylish ways, which makes it a valuable work of art. We see it gaining acceptance and popularity internationally.”
Despite working in the fashion industry, Fame does not believe in following trends. Instead, she wears clothes that suit her personality. “My style is simple, yet each piece I wear has a lot of details in it. It is important that my outfits have good a silhouette and are tailored impeccably. When I want to glam up, I simply add accessories to my outfit,” she reveals.
Fame’s attention to detail and interest in fashion appears in other aspects of her life including her residence. She elaborates, “My dream residence is a sanctuary inspired by my love for fashion and art, and where every square metre reflects my identity and taste. My residence exudes comfort and warmth, while mirroring my personality through exquisite design, handcrafted furniture and one-of-a-kind decoration. I want my guests to sense my personality as soon as they step into my residence.” Fame describes AP Thailand’s newest property, The Address Siam-Ratchathewi, as her idea of what a dream residence should represent; luxury, uniqueness and the exclusivity of an iconic neighbourbood. “My husband and I have been living on the outskirt of Bangkok, but our businesses require us to spend more time in the city. We are currently looking for a residence located in the heart of Bangkok, and The Address Siam-Ratchathewi is perfect for us in terms of location,” she reveals.
The luxe high-rise residence, located in Ratchathewi, a hidden gem in the heart of the city, effortlessly blends Thai fine art with the architecture of a classic French palace. The opulent interiors draw its inspiration from nature, especially that of an elegant peacock. Often considered as the symbol of royalty and grace, the queen of birds is also the signature symbol of the property. “The peacock is a feminine being whose majestic characteristics are a symbol of elegance. The unique design elements and luxurious interiors of The Address echo the same sophistication,” Fame remarks.
Elements that leave a lasting impression in Fame’s mind are the ultra-luxe Hermès furnishing fabrics and wallpapers that adorn The Sky Chamber – the luxurious lounge from where to take in sweeping views of the city. An admirer of the legendary French brand, Fame recognises the iconic patterns right away, commenting, “People adore Hermès’ patterns because they are unique. Incorporating it into interiors is a beautiful way to unite fashion, lifestyle and decorative design.”
“As a fashion and art enthusiast, I appreciate every detail that has gone into the creation of The Address Siam-Ratchathewi. Right from its use of the best materials to the thoughtful design and layout, the residence is a stellar combination of luxury, prestigious living and uniqueness, while at the same time exuding the warmth of residence, which is the most important aspect,” she concludes.
