Harrods of London launch their first furniture collection

7th March 2017

The world famous department store, Harrods, have launched their first furniture collection for their Harrods of London range designed by the Harrods Interiors team. This iconic store has been retailing furniture since the early 1880’s and with all that experience behind them, it was very exciting to pop along to the store to see what they have created. The Harrods Interiors team showed me their latest collection a few weeks ago. Inspired by Art-Deco jewellery and tailoring, this new collection…

Khulu Vases- The Ardmore Collection- Cole & Son

I’ve mentioned Ardmore a few times both on Interior Style Hunter as well as my social media channels. They are a South African Ceramic Studio that creates incredibly unique and bold designs and I always try to make time to see them when I’m in South Africa. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that they had done a collaboration with Cole & Son, the iconic wallpaper brand. I was very excited to see the result of the…

Dawn Bench from Duistt

31st January 2017
DAWN BENCH

The Dawn Bench, designed by Olga Torres, the CEO and Founder of Duistt, was one of the stars of Maison et Objet. It immediately caught my eye when I passed the Duistt stand and I noticed it being shared widely on social media too. It’s a masculine shaped bench with a bold personality, I love the little flourish of fur that just adds a luxurious touch. The legs are in bronze and the upholstery 100% cotton velvet. This is the…

Ribbon Chair from Object Studio

30th January 2017

Sometimes you need a statement piece in a space to make it work. Something bold, strong and beautifully made. Something like the Ribbon Chair which I recently saw at Maison et Objet. It was sitting on a plinth, cleverly conveying the message that this isn’t just a piece of furniture, but rather something to be admired, a piece of sculptural art. We asked them to take it off the plinth and move it to the floor so we could sit…

26th January 2017

I saw some beautiful pieces of furniture amongst the chaos that was design week in Paris. Over the next week I’m going to be sharing some short quick posts about what I found and really loved. Firstly, this collection from Nomon Home was really beautiful. Their pieces are the perfect solution for small bijou spaces. I love this dressing table, it’s very feminine, so not for me personally, but I do appreciate that the design is so beautiful and it’s…

The London Sofa by FBC London

19th December 2016

During a private tour of the Pimlico Road Design District last week I was introduced to the team at FBC London. Their shop on Pimlico Road is filled with a carefully edited collection that represents the FBC design ethos. From beautiful ceramics, to furniture, vases, incredible lighting and a lot more, but there’s one piece in particular that I locked eyes on, the London Sofa. This sofa has the perfect curves, just enough to make it feel contemporary, but still functional.…

10th November 2016
bang & olufsen

A paid advertorial for Bang & Olufsen. Concepts and elements of design fascinate me. With every interview, article, speaking engagement and working with interior designers and brands, I learn more about design. It puts me in a unique position as I watch design evolve from many different aspects and points of view. The designers that I’m really enjoying at the moment are designers who focus on more than just the look of a space, they think about all the senses…

Slowing down into Autumn and embracing Hygge, my #AWMoments with Christy

27th October 2016
Christy

Whether it’s in a bookstore or an interiors magazine and all across the blogosphere, the word ‘Hygge’ is popping up. According to the Telegraph, this Danish word is pronounced “heurgha” (imagine the sound you make clearing your throat) and defined as: “the absence of anything annoying or emotionally overwhelming; taking pleasure from the presence of gentle, soothing things”. How wonderful is that? The absence of anything annoying or overwhelming… what bliss. And that ties beautifully into the season of Autumn…
