Caps on

I was asked the other day, if I favoured a certain piece – interesting question. But got me thinking about trolling through websites, catalogues and designers I would probable say, I am drawn to chairs and lights! Why? Who knows, but discovering versatility and flare in the staples is always special.

CAP’s, designed by Florian Gross are a optical sensation, with thin caps giving the effect they are suspended from the ceiling with no additional dimension until the change of viewing angle.

The connection genius

I was lucky enough to sip tea at the Barcelona Maritime Museum (a gorgeous spot away from all the tourists if you’re looking for place for a sunny afternoon hideaway) with winner of Ex-T Design and Tendence Talents, Florian Gross, a man driven by finding new ways of connecting materials and create long-lasting pieces.

German born, now Barcelona based, Florian has displayed twice at Milan Design Fair and received a number of accolades for this inventive and durable designs.

Of his collection my favourites; KONNEX (displayed below) and CAPS ( featuring on Friday). Those who know me well, know I love changing the styling of a room regularly, there is something so therapeutic about it and I love seeing a space continually reformed and challenging myself to see how many ways I can structure it.

The KONNEX shelf allows for this, but also challenges the mind about a new combination of pieces and the combinations could be never-ending having up to 12 boxes to play with.

The exciting part of writing blog is discovering people like-mindedly passionate about the longevity of furniture and the use of quality materials and methods to guarantee the purchase is an investment and this guy is one of those people!

Move. Smile.

I once saw a meme on Facebook explaining the reason for the light in the fridge is to allow us to devour any treat we see as a reasonable satisfier for our midnight cravings (mine is usually chocolate – Cadbury Old Gold Rum and Raisin).  A brilliant concept, perhaps not the best for loosing weight, but in order to see what the fridge truly has to offer. How often are there times we go to our closet and have no idea where to find that top, dress, cardigan or pair of jeans because of the darkness of the area.
Alas, girls (and guys) there is a fix – gives you a reason to smile.

My.light launched in October allows you to guide your way to that perfect outfit just by opening the closet door or getting out of bed. The environmentally friendly LED’s are switched by motion sensor and can stay on as long as you need.

The benefit of this product is the transferability throughout the home, specifically the Bed-light range lights illuminates the path without disturbing others in the room (so they won’t find out you’re up for the chocolate – win).

A simple, easy to install, environmentally friendly and effective product!

Falling for design

I have fallen in love with design and decor all over again and it is the genius behind TCHV and Tcherassi Vilato I have to thank (although I’m not sure if I’ve just fallen their vivacious nature,  their cheeky personalities or actual product – but I suppose one gives rise to the other).

Angelica and Jacob define what design should be, an eclectic expression of style, fun and quality – pushing the boundaries away from the popular Scandinavian minimalism   to embrace bold colours and fresh concepts

 Founding architect’s of TCHV  this young duo stretch the imagination to create beauty in every building or product they conceive. I’ll be honest; I scroll through interior after interior, building after building and product after product, loving what I see, but never has my heart raced faster, or eyes opened as wide as when I saw the capabilities of these two and what excites me is their ability to use shapes, lines and light to deliver outstanding designs.  It’s no wonder they feature in editorials world-wide!

To you two! Salut!
