The Smart APP-artment… the Art of Technology realised.
Architects spend more hours considering lighting than any other item. And with good reason, lighting is highly complex and has a huge impact on comfort levels, with the instant ability to mute or complement the interior design, furnishings and the architecture itself.
The Smart App-artment has six fully-working, room-by-room, lighting displays to inspire clients with ingenious solutions including a dedicated lighting room where you can test the latest LEDs; view state-of-the-art coffered ceiling options; wonder at realistic natural daylight bulbs and have fun with colour-changing mood lights. Our professional lighting designers have a wealth of experience of designing, implementing and commissioning both contemporary and classic high-end lighting projects. We advise and assist at every level, working closely with clients to understand how each room is used, what needs to emphasised and changing usage patterns over time.
Window treatments also play a fundamental role in good lighting design, helping to harvest or block daylight as required. Imagine if your blinds or curtains could be scheduled to open and close while you were out; allowing sunshine to warm rooms or to be drawn tight at bedtime to retain heat. (Saving on energy costs in the process). Or if your blinds automatically closed whenever the TV is switched on, or were programmed on a timer as a deterrent to burglars. The possibilities are endless, especially for older and less agile homeowners. Cornflake specialies in the integration and automation of lighting and window treatments. And as controlling these elements can all be done from a single controller, an Apple iPad or your preferred android platform, it’s all incredibly simple.
Controlling your lights and curtains from the beach or your office, or just without moving from the comfort of your armchair, is easily sorted by our team. Conflake fits and automates every conceivable type of window treatment in any size or shape aperture. Blinds, rollers, blackouts, Roman or Venetian, motorised curtains, screen drapes and privacy glass, our clever Lighting & Blinds experts advise on all aspects of integration from the aesthetics to the technical logistics, including offering a huge choice of fabrics and linings.
The Art of Technology… illuminated by Cornflake.
Today’s homes use a huge amount of technology – central heating, lighting, TVs, boilers, computers, phones, tablets, Hi-Fi, AV and security systems… the list is endless. Getting all this kit to work properly, and simply do what it should when you want it to, can be a real headache often taking up more time than it saves. Not to mention to stress. And with umpteen warranties and separate policies for the upkeep of each appliance that’s a lot of paperwork to track, especially for busy families and large residences.
Cornflake Concierge was designed to banish technology hassles. To enable clients to off-load the stress of running their home technology and automation systems to a dedicated third party available 24/7 throughout the year. Concierge is built on Cornflake’s extensive experience of installing, integrating and managing technology to the highest levels of quality and workmanship. Maintaining systems and keeping them in tip-top condition is what we love, ensuring that equipment performs as smoothly as the day it was installed.
Cornflake Concierge offers servicing support designed to meet a wide range of demands; including fast-track home call-outs; remote problem resolution; regular maintenance visits; daily data back-up; dedicated email services and individually-designed telephony packages, with greatly reduced or waived call-out charges for clients.
From IT consultancy to complete round-the-clock support, a Cornflake Concierge contract can be shaped to meet your personal requirements, making technology troubles a thing of the past and leaving you to get on with life.

We are invited to hand-pick for display some of the world’s finest speakers and Hi-Fi components. These very special pieces of equipment are made available for clients, and prospective clients, to audition in our specially-built acoustically-balanced listening room, right in the heart of the West End.
State-of-the-art Hi-Fi, coupled with the some of the most sonically-impressive and visually-striking speakers, ensure we have something to suit every taste; whether you’re an iPod user just dipping a toe into the world of high-end audio, a discerning vinyl enthusiast or a dedicated aficionado seeking knowledgebable debate and purchasing advice from like-minded souls.
Winter 2014: WE’RE RECRUITING.
We need another top-flight Customer Service Engineer to join our award-winning ranks.
Renowned for unsurpassed customer servicing levels, we’re only interested in hearing from engineers who share our commitment and passion for going the extra mile to delight demanding clients.

If you are personable and have tangible experience (in most of the following areas): AV custom installs, smart phones and tablets, software & operating systems, Cloud computing & connected devices, internet & networks, voice & telephony please drop us a line today with your CV and salary expectations.
Our engineers are legendary! You will operate from our headline-grabbing award-winning showroom The Smart APP-artment, and be privileged to work in some of the most beautiful homes in London and the South East. We pride ourselves on providing a pleasant, friendly, professional working environment with the opportunity for fast-track career progression. We pay competitive salaries to secure and retain the best talent; but in return we challenge and set exacting standards; so expect to be pushed. We support – and invest in – our people, providing ongoing training and a wide range of staff benefits and pastoral care. Our team enjoys working for a transparent CEDIA-accredited company with a huge appetite for technology; we’re always open to new ideas and frequently adopt new processes to keep abreast of the fast-paced IoT and to maintain our market leading status.
