S.A. Baxter – A visit to the foundry

18th June 2019

On a trip to London in the late summer of 2015, I saw an exhibition at the V & A entitled “What is Luxury” which encapsulated everything I always thought about the word. Fact of the matter is that the word “luxury” similarly to the word, “love” is one of the most used, mis-used and abused words in the English-speaking vocabulary.  In the material world in which we live, high-profile fashion designer labels which manufacture and market expensive goods under…

So much so, that I’ve been sending the images that I took at the press preview to a lot of my VIP contacts telling them to have a look. The Hirondelles is a classic chinoiserie style pattern designed by…

3rd July 2018
Ara Living

Over the last few months I’ve been approached by quite a few bed linen startups. Small businesses who are looking for a shout out on the blog and looking to share some of the product with me. I don’t often do these, but this brand Ara Living really got my interest. As someone interested in marketing, I do love a brand who instantly gets my attention – and they did, with very clear thoughts about what ethical luxury is as…

Limitless Co-Existence “Co” was this year’s creative theme and the Lexus installation was titled “Limitless Co-existence.” It was an exploration into their belief that design is a catalyst for change,…

Adding a touch of luxury to your tabletop

20th March 2018

Special pieces for the table have always been a staple in my home. From my early 20’s when I used to have legendary dinner parties in my Cape Town home, I always thought about what was on my table and how it was served. I used to splash out and buy the best I could afford and to this day, I still do the same. I met Gemma Martinez de Ana last year and I fell in love with her…

1st March 2018

To create truly spectacular designs nowadays you have to go the extra mile in order to stand out from the crowd.
