We are really excited by this week's post, The Farm House, a boutique hotel in Ibiza, where soft tones and textures create a luxury and relaxing environment. The burnt woods, natural stones and slate are all eclectic materials we love working with.
This weeks favourite is a vintage brass table lamp designed by Koch & Lowy around the 1960's. The American lighting company was founded in 1946 by Ernst Lowy. We love the curved brass details of the base that support the simple yet stylish shade. A key component to a beautiful interior.
Nothing compares to the quality and character found in hand crafted objects and this week we were lucky enough to stumble across Artisans Max Bainbridge and Abigail Booth from Forest + Found. Founded in 2014, they use traditional methods to create sculptural wooden objects and large textile pieces which are inspired by the landscape and endeavour to tell a story. The perfect accessory to an interior.
This week’s favourite is the Brisbane home, a three bedroom cottage originally built in 1900 and adapted by the owner in recent years. This interior is one that we can relate to with its layering of material textures, neutral palette and vintage collection of objects. We love the characterful accessories in this bright and interesting interior.
This week we have selected a few of our favourites from Sotheby’s upcoming auction, Collections & Collectors.
The collection brings together a wide range of objects from mid-century joinery pieces to some breath taking mirrors and much more. There's something for everybody in this auction! 28th April | 10am | London
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!
