This week’s favourite is the Pierre Jeanneret’s 1958’s Office Chair. This is always a piece that inspires us with its teak structure, caned seat and backrest. We love it’s simple yet striking look. Thanks 1st Dibs!
This week we have selected a few of our favourites from Sotheby’s upcoming auction, Collections & Collectors.

Vintage House Daylesford is an 1860’s miners’ cottage on the border of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs that is available to rent for that perfect weekend getaway. It has been completely restored and re-designed to highlight the original features of the house. Combining the use of wood, metals and shades of white, black and everything in between to bring new life to the cottage. Finished with antique, vintage and industrial furniture from around the world. This is a real beauty and we love it, wouldn't mind a few nights here ourselves!
Our love for 1st Dibs gets even stronger this month as we have fallen in love with this English Bank of drawers from the mid-18th Century. A unique attribute of this piece is built in partitions inside the draws. Not to mention the original metal pulls. Love at first sight!
Christian Hetzel is a self-taught contemporary artist from Germany, who is fascinated by the dominant laws of texture, and the composition of colour and form which follow it. Most of his work is based on traditional media techniques, such as canvas, paper, timber board, painted with acrylic and mixed media. Hetzel draws inspiration from a range of modern masters from Rothko to Richter and Soulages, which has developed into a unique and powerful style. Here are a few of our favourites.
Hope you find them as inspiring as we do!
In this month’s Blog we are celebrating ‘International Women’s Day’. We are focussing on Inspirational Women Artist’s. One particular Artist we especially like is Rachel Whiteread. Rachel is one of Britain’s leading contemporary sculptors. She was the first women to win the annual Turner Prize in 1993. Many of Whiteread’s works are casts of ordinary domestic objects and in some case’s their negative-space.
We hope you find her as inspirational as we do.
This week we are looking at the latest issue of The World of Interiors, another jam packed issue full of inspiration!
Storey Craft showcases Belgian Designer Lionel Jadot's transformation of a Regency terrace house in Knightsbridge. His use of both salvaged and natural materials within the space create a stunning aesthetic playing on the designers ethos of 're-use, revive and re-imagine.' The en-suite bathroom with panels of glass and bamboo faced glazing bars is truly beautiful.
From London to Italy where local artist Agostino Iacurci's public artworks are fast imprinting themselves on to the fabric of Rome. Each mural distinctively differs to become a backdrop to the neighborhood it resides in creating interest and fun within even the most down-trodden areas.
