Harry is home

Sorry I haven’t done any blogging of late.. naughty me!  For those who know me.. know I have a BIG LOVE of chairs. Here’s a couple of photo’s of my latest love.. Harry Bertoia’s 1952 Diamond chair. Covered in Cato by Knoll.. I think it looks amazing!




L’accueil by Arnaud Lapierre

Arnaud Lapierre has been named the winner of Cinna Maison Française, with L’accueil.

The unit is composed of three articulated structures: a LED light source and two plates which can be arranged in different positions. Intended for entry areas as a plateau for daily objects: keys, letters, things not to forget, as well as a place for other things of lesser importance.

The Eames House Bird makes for the perfect accessory on top of the L’accueil.

Watch out – Australian Designers


I spy a couple of upcoming brilliant Australian Designers: 


Brodie Neill is a young dynamic designer capturing the attention of the international design scene with his new and exciting use of form. Only recently having graduated, the 28-year-old Australian has quickly built up an impressive collection of international exhibitions and prestigious clientele.

Korban/Flaubert is a design and production office founded in 1993 by metal specialist Janos Korban and Architect Stefanie Flaubert.  In 2001 Korban and Flaubert set up their current studio/workshop/showroom in the industrial suburb of Alexandria in Sydney.  They describe the workshop as ‘a laboratory of form’, in which they playfully explore the cross-over between geometry and nature.

Massproductions presents the ‘Harry Stool’ : designed by Chris Martin

Called Harry, the product comprises two curved, laminated components held together by solid, wooden wedges.



This simple concept led to a charming stool which can also function as a footrest or a side table. The Harry stool has pleasing tactile qualities and is available in two heights and three surface finishes; natural, black and white stained.

Joseph Dirand : Hotel Distrito Capital in Mexico

Parisian interior designer Joseph Dirand’s work graces Grupo Habita’s Distrito Capital in Mexico City.

Grupo Habita has unveiled its 8th hotel, Distrito Capital, in Mexico City’s international business neighborhood of Santa Fe, helping the city to cement its reputation as the leading 21st-Century metropolis.  With Distrito Capital, the company once again delivers its signature chic and outstanding service to previously unthought-of environments and transforms them into instant classics.

The latest, most arresting, interior design trends – this time courtesy of Joseph Dirand – come into their own at Distrito Capital. Grupo Habita left nothing to chance; from the most prominent vintage furnishings to details like John Pawson’s cutlery, and even in the smallest (yet significant) in-room accessories from Acqua di Parma.

Tom Dixon

A new addition to Tom DixonMirror Ball Collection, is the Mirror Ball Stand.  It features an array of various sized balls on a robust stainless steel stand, held together with industrial strength clamps.  The look overall is a sculptural silver cluster of mirror balls quoted by Dixon as the “lighting Tree”


Milan Design Week 2009 lunched a collection of sofas & seating from Tom Dixon by George Smith.  The collection celebrates the traditions of British upholstered furniture with each piece hand made by George Smith using techniques practised for over 250 years.
