DESIGN LEGEND: CARL AUBOCK












Aubock is regarded as one of the most accomplished and versatile designers of his generation. Based in Vienna, Austria, Aubock took over from his fathers workshop in the mid 20's and for the next 2 decades begins developing his rather specific pieces which, by the time the war finished, had made him recognised internationally, designing everything from bookends and cork screws, to lights and furniture. We love the slight comical aspect to some of his pieces, a foot as a paperweight but also the shapes he creates and the incredible amount of detailing behind each piece.

We've added a couple of pictures we'd be happy to have.  Well worth a visit or purchasing the catalogue and a big thank you to Miss Roxanne.

INTERIORS INSPIRATION: A PERFECT HOLIDAY HOME IN FORMENTERA







These beautiful images were shot by super talented photographer Julien Oppenheim. The holiday house, tucked away in land, is in the island of Formentera, Spain. The simple use of  raw timbers and polished concrete make the space a contemporary yet tranquil space with muted greys and browns running throughout the house. Another yes please.

INTERIORS INSPIRATION: BAXTER FINLEY BARBER & SHOP









This new barbers opened up in West Hollywood, L.A., and has a uncanny similarity to that of Freemans barbershop in NY and now recently in San Fran, so much so that I would find it hard to believe if the owners hadn't taken it as their main source of inspiration. Not that it's a bad thing, we love Freemans, not only the barbers but the shop and restaurant - will blog next week about it in fact. waterworth alexander interiors. alexander waterworth interiors
Exposed bricks, raw timbers with old subway tiles, an exposed ceiling and factory lights makes it a authentic, unpretentious space. This plus a free glass of whiskey (and we read the haircuts are rather good) make it a perfect place to have a trim if ever in town.

An incredibly beautiful 18th Century leather trunk from Atlanta based antiques company, Robuck. Warn leather mixed with the patinated iron details and original studs gives it a pure character and we would love to see it at the end of a small bed in an Itailan country house, please.
