And so to 100% Design where we spied…
the new Arabesque range of tiles at Johnson Tiles, which had some glam metallic designs.
Simon Woodruffe launched his capsule apartment, Yo! Home, a nifty example of engineered space-saving design, we witnessed the lounge…
…become the bedroom.
And the home office…
become the guest bed. See more about it here.
We loved the Scandinavian mid-century classics range of wallpapers launched by Swedish wallpaper company Borastapeter. The dozen designs come in 36 colourways by iconic designers Arne Jacobsen, Sven Markelius, Karl Axel Pehrson and Stif Lindberg, this one is Trapez by Arne Jacobsen.
Loved the mixed materials (something of a recurring theme) of these ‘La Familia’ containers – fine Patagonian wood and copper – on the Chilean design studio bravo!’s stand.
Pick and mix from nine basic parts to compose up to 40 different unique vessels. They were snapped up by Mint in Brompton Cross where they’re now stocked.
Plant & Moss (their Bisley sofa is currently featured in the November issue) are definitely a British design duo to watch.
Their Akita desk set is an alluring blend of oak, copper and brass with matt concrete. Hardly a budget buy,but you have the feeling it would last forever.
We liked the vibrant textiles of Eva Sonaike‘s Aburi collection, which includes these poufs plus cushions and bags, inspired by the Aburi botanical gardens in Ghana.
Proof that colour can also come from concrete was Hungarian company Kaza’s ‘My Stile’ tiling system, which allows you to choose bespoke colours, patterns and textures.
Young London-based studio JiB’s ‘O’ series of furniture (Console O, above) offered a solution to plant/fruit/book storage with their consoles and credenzas that incorporated ceramic vessels.
