Ligne Roset Citta

We will always be in love with Citta and totally agree with Ligne Rosetti when they say it is a 'future classic'. Inspired by the 1930’s, it perfectly embodies the luxurious 'Rive Gauche' styling of French interior decoration.

Sleeping on Eden

We love the new Eden collection by Antonio Citterio for Flexform.

We particular want to extol the virtues of the modern chaise longue above and the magnificent sofa bed: a great solution for a night and day design piece, especially when sofa beds are disliked for doing neither of their jobs! In contrast, Citterio’s Eden is an extremely comfortable bed with leather wings that can be transformed into a stunning contemporary day bed.

The Surreal House Exhibition

The Barbican Centre has invited us to inhabit The Surreal House and this is definitely one invite that we’ll take up.
What we’re visiting is a mysterious dwelling infused with subjectivity and desire. We can’t wait to step inside the labyrinth of chambers- designed by acclaimed architects- and experience haunted rooms, delirious forms, blasted architecture and cinematic dreamscapes featuring a host of artists, architects and film makers including Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Man Ray, Joseph Cornell and Maya Deren right through to more contemporary figures, among them; Louise Bourgeois, Rebecca Horn, Edward Kienholz and Rem Koolhaas.
