Quality, Creativity and Craftsmanship Since 1938

RIVA 1920 is an Italian, family-owned business that has been producing timeless, solid wood furniture in Northern Italy for more than three generations. The company began in the early 1920s when the family began learning the art of wood carving, an unpredictable, difficult craft. The project continued until 1992, a key turning point for RIVA, when the small studio began collaborating with 30 different designers. It also marked the first year the company exhibited at the Milan Salone del Mobile. RIVA prides itself on finding and working with new woods in artistic, innovative ways that respect the environment. All of the company’s products are finished using only oils, beeswax, and vinyl glues without formaldehyde in order to exalt the living and breathable qualities of its natural beauty.

NATURAL LIVING… THE SMELL OF WOOD! RIVA 1920 is an integration of craftsmanship and tradition, with modern design and technology. Its attention to detail and the subtle detailing in its work, are what makes RIVA 1920 one of the most unique furniture producers in the world today. Today it is continues to work as it did as an artisan workshop, producing furniture made with unusual wood like cedar, the thousands-year-old kauri wood from New Zealand and the Briccola wood from Venice. Here we present some stunning pieces from their collection;

Kairo Armchair Kairo, designed by karim rashid marks the beginning of the collaboration between the designer karim rashid and riva 1920. Reflecting on the experience of designing kairo, karim rashid says: “when i designed the kairo chair, i was inspired by the woodworking process that takes place in order to produce a piece of furniture from a single block of wood.

Venice Console Table Designed by Claudio Bellini, this table sports a unique and sculptural style by integrating natural and the industrial elements together. Pieces of weathered watery logs of briccole wood constitute its base providing a natural look to the item. The logs are cracked and add a distinct note with their imperfections. The look of the furniture is complemented by its top which is made in smooth polished steel. The table top’s design draws reference to the water surface with its smooth and reflective surface. The logs penetrate the table top. The design of the item makes it ideal to be used in contemporary or rustic-styled interiors.

Maui Armchair This lounge chair is made of scented cedar wood and is carved out of a single block of wood. Its sinuous shape is characterized by the peculiar concentric circles of the cedar trunk section and its natural steel swivel base. The Maui is available with or without the metal swivel base.

Mondana Bag Inspired by an everyday object beloved by women the world over - The bag. Visually removed from its natural context and combined together with an unusual element such as wood, it’s intended as a homage to Pop Art and represents a nowadays icon.The solid cedarwood monolith wood block is curved into sinuous bends following the typical shape of a leather bag. Two leather handles complete the look.

Dadone is in solid cider wood and comes in either a small size (40x40 cm) or in a larger one, which results from placing two units one on top of the other. Dadone is a piece suitable for both the living room and kitchen.

TIMELESS ELEGANCE Renowned interior designer Leyla Uluhanli showcases her self-titled collection The Leyla Uluhanli Collection which was presented at the 2016 Maison & Objet Paris. The collection is inspired by the concept of American art of the 1960’s — a favourite era of the designer and consists of armchairs, sofas, consoles, commodes and lighting featuring neutral tones with antique brass, crystal rock, and sycamore veneer. The principle components of the collection are comfort, functionality combining minimalism and precise craftsmanship. “The popularity of this style is in its simplicity and courtliness of the forms, lines. In its conciseness, and partly in the light feeling of nostalgia it provokes, it is certainly luxury and absolutely universal” — Leyla Uluhanli. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, Leyla Uluhanli studied design in London and Moscow. Since opening her studio Leyla Uluhanli Interiors in 2005, she has showcased projects in Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Baku, Lisbon, Dubai and London. For more information visit: DÉCOR Magazine


ANCIENT NATURE AND MODERN DESIGN A table that is the ultimate expression of sustainable design: The Terranova Table

Ancient nature and modern design meet and fuse to create a table, which unites a prehistoric wood of about 48,000 years in age with the contemporary look of natural iron. The top is made from an ancient New Zealand Kauri wood, which has been further, enhanced by the insertion of a transparent resin, poured in and polished by hand. Sitting on a solid iron base this unique table offers both a touch of modernity and natural elements into any interior. For more information visit:



VG is inspired by the mysteries of the underworld, such as the stalactites in century-old caves, the dramatic expression of the long-standing passage of water on rocks.

Africa Now, the new collection by Mosaico+

The name of the Greek goddess Theia – the mother of the sun, the moon and the dawn lends itself to this lamp as its design seeks to express the beauty of light. Theia, designed by Mathias Hahn for Marset, merges light and shadow into one single piece created with one single movement. With two faces, you can discover light and shadow by simply rotating it on its axis. This swivelling movement totally shifts the perception of the piece creating either a subtle light effect or solid darkness.

For more information visit:

Its formal design is elementary and streamlined: two halfspheres, one placed horizontally and the other vertically, which intersect with each other. Just as in nature itself, these formal elements make it possible for the light from a source to be projected, reflected and absorbed by objects for complete visual enjoyment.

Obi is a part of the Japanese kimono, the band that is tied to close the robe and adjust its length, in which nothing is accidenbal - the fabric used, the pattern or the way it is tied. Nothing is accidental either in the creation of the Obi light, whose overall simplicity includes important details. This attention to detail and the interlacing of the long ribbon that characterise the lampshade have inspired its name ‘Obi’.

Complete lamp collection whose lampshades and canopies consist of silken ribbons available in ivory, black, white and tobacco colours. In the ivory and black versions the lampshades have a semi-reflecting chromeplated finished PVC sheet inside; the white and tobacco ones, instead, have a white stitched fabric interior. The canopies are coordinated with the lampshades.

The Obi collection includes a table lamp, floor lamp, suspension light, ceiling light and wall light. The lampshade is covered in soft, vertical silky ribbons and is available in different versions: ivory or black with a mirrored interior finish; tobacco or white with a white fabric interior. The use of this material is echoed in the rosette of the suspension models. The stand of the table and floor versions has three chrome plated metal bars. For more information visit:

In a cozy atmosphere, a soft light creates an elusive and mysterious allure: this is Eclettica by la murrina, a new collection that emphasizes the ability of the Murano glassblowers. La Murrina was born on the island of Murano, in 1968, as a collaboration between a few select Master Glass Blowers, whose skill was a gift passed to them from a century’s worth of generations before them. In 1974, a Milanese family took control of the now successful company. They believed in the traditional art of glass blowing and had innovative ideas that would modernise this ancient art form, as well as the company as a whole. This seamless marriage of the antique and the contemporary has earned La Murrina their leading position as one of the most successful and respected manufacturers of Murano glass lighting and dÊcor products in the world, offering priceless and innovative pieces in every genre -- classic, traditional, contemporary and design. Available from:

The art of la murrina, worldwide well-known for its aesthetic research that respects the tradition while looking forward to the future, offers a poliedric and multifaceted selection. Like jewels, drops of hand blown colored glass are embellishing the arms of chandeliers while luxurious fabrics shades decorate the fixtures, offering a delicate and subtle atmosphere. Alchemy, textures, transparency, reflections, art combined in a new style for an extraordinary la murrina design.

Eclettica includes light fixtures, sconces, table lamps, all available in different shapes, dimensions, finishes and designed for a powerful presence in the refined ambiances.

FEDORA Contemporary forms of the past

38 DÉCOR Magazine

Designed by Dima Loginoff

The collection of Fedora lamps, made of aluminium and glass, consists of five different types of suspended models - with one light, a cluster of three, six and twelve lights and seven lights in a line - and a recessed spotlight. Namely, the suspended models reveal the touch of the designer, the rising star of Russian design Dima Loginoff, who took and reinterpreted a shape universally regarded as associated with Russian tradition: Russian dolls. “Although I have been defined ‘the least Russian designer in Russia’, I love this shape and it seems to be in my blood,” says Dima Loginoff.

“In this project I decided to combine old and modern. I’m a big fan of minimalism, but sometimes I simply feel that classical forms are perfect to be redesigned and turned into a modern product. Fedora is an old and forgotten Russian name. I love it!” DÉCOR Magazine


Illuminating by decorating The combination of two materials such as aluminium and glass makes the Fedora lamp a particularly decorative item suitable to illuminate and decorate different areas, both in residential spaces (living, dining, halls) and in the contract sector (reception desks and lounges in hotels and public venues). In the suspended version the diffuser consists of an aluminium part, available in metallic bronze, rose gold or chrome, and another part made of clear glass. The built-in spotlight is entirely made of clear glass.

BLURRED LINES The Illusionist Wallpaper Collection is set to revolutionise the way we look at space in our homes. With the collection launching this month, you no longer need to be a magician to create optical illusions of space, Kelly and Dynamo have already overcome that design barrier.

Kelly Hoppen & Dynamo join forces to unveil their first illusionary collaboration with Graham & Brown Blurring the boundaries of design and magic, world-renowned designer and entrepreneur Kelly Hoppen MBE and star magician Dynamo, have teamed up to create a distinctive range of illusion wallpaper. Launching towards the end of January 2016, the collaboration will be the first that sees a magician and interior designer joining forces to bring their creativity and craft to life. The wallpapers are available in two designs ‘Enigma’, a 3 dimensional effect giving a protruding pillar effect and ‘Paradox’ which replicates an angled, jutting wall of stone. Each are digitally printed using the newest printing technology. By using this innovative technique, Kelly and Dynamo had access to design options outside of the usual restrictions and boundaries of traditional wallpaper printing allowing much more flexibility in terms of scale and detail. Using realistic imagery and clever design, Hoppen and Dynamo have used a trompe l’oeil technique to create an optical illusion of depth, which forms a sense of additional space within the home. Kelly Hoppen says, “When Dynamo and I initially met and started discussing the idea of an illusion wallpaper, I had no idea how fascinating it would be to work on such a different project! Having been in the design industry for 40 years, there isn’t much I haven’t done, but magic was new to me and I enjoyed every second. I like to think I create magic in people’s homes on a daily basis but now I can say I have done the real thing, with the mystery man himself!” Kelly and Dynamo, are proud ambassadors for The Prince’s Trust and are passionate about inspiring the next generations of young entrepreneurs and creatives. In celebration of their first collaboration and the Prince’s Trust 40th anniversary, Graham & Brown alongside Hoppen and Dynamo will donate a percentage of the proceeds back to the charity. Dynamo quoted on the collection said “I wanted to bring a bit of magic into people’s homes and after chatting with legendary interior designer Kelly Hoppen we came up together with the idea of magic inspired wallpaper prints. I’m thrilled with the results and even more delighted that part of the profits will go to the Princes Trust who were so key in helping me start my magical journey.”

Alan Kemp, Head of Brand Marketing at Graham & Brown said, “Graham and Brown are delighted to support this fascinating partnership that has produced an amazing result that challenges people’s perceptions of wallpaper.

As we celebrate our seventieth anniversary, it has been pleasure to once again challenge and innovate our print and finishing techniques as well as support the work of the Princes’ Trust”.

DEEP IN THE JUNGLE The Jungle collection has been designed like a voyage into a land of colors and materials. Each motif tells a story and each page is an open window onto a fanciful, yet unexplored South American country: an oasis which is both wild and benevolent. Stroll in the midst of cacti without spines, stroke a jaguar, and have a nap in the shade of trees always laden with fruit… time seems to be at a standstill… let yourself be wooed by the charms of this lost paradise.

Pierre Frey, founded in 1935, designs, creates and manufactures fabrics and wallpapers in the purest French tradition. The company’s rich collection of no less than 7,000 items includes not only the Pierre Frey designs, but collections from the company’s other three prestigious brands: Braquenié, Fadini Borghi and Boussac. Although Pierre Frey is traditionally a fabric and furnishing house, it’s also attuned to the modern world, which has led to the creation of equally stunning home accessories and furniture collections.

GIVING SOMETHING BACK New Designer, Anna Jacobs, launches a new cushion design, Murmuration, for SS16, sewn exclusively by women in a high security women’s prison, organized through the charity, Blue Sky. A British artist, interior designer and tutor at Chelsea College of Arts Anna’s new homewares business launched offical exactly a year ago this week. She applies her original paintings to limited edition prints, greeting cards, linen and silk cushions and lampshades with her new hand blown crystal glass lamp bases.

For more information visit:

52 DÉCOR Magazine

The cost of producing Anna’s Murmuration cushion through the prison is the same as it costs to produce her other cushions through her usual commercial CMT unit. However, part of the price she pays goes toward the training and qualifications of the women prisoners. She chose the Murmuration design because a murmuration is not only a wonderful image of birds flying free, but it is also an extraordinary phenomenon of hundreds of starlings working together and creating beautiful patterns and formations in the sky. This seemed to reflect the aims and ethos of the sewing workshop within the women’s prison. As a single parent who’d recently gone though some tough times, but been helped enormously by friends and family, Anna wanted to find a way to pass on some of that kindness by supporting other women in difficulty. Blue Sky aims to generate new employment and training opportunities to engage prisoners, improve their self esteem and give them the best chance of getting their lives back on track once they are released.

The company does not generate net CO2 emissions in the process as they use abundant minerals or renewable raw materials. The types of renewable raw materials we use: • Plant origin such as Damar resin and linseed oil • Animal origin such as beeswax, milk casein and shellac • Minerals such as chalk, earth and mineral pigments Any CO2 that is generated in the manufacturing process is counterbalanced by the absorption of CO2 by the plant sources used in the ingredients. In addition, all the raw materials are all responsibly sourced and almost all are organic. The company is fully committed to constantly improving their footprint. Recycling Dangerous waste is not generated in the production process and everything used can be recycled. At their Herefordshire HQ the team work hard to generate as little waste as possible. The paints themselves are odourless and have just fresh, clean smells derived from nature. They do not generate any toxic waste in the processes and everything used can be recycled. Unwanted paint is donated to good causes. All the metal tins are recycled, plastic buckets are offered free to local people to feed their horses or grow tomatoes in. The office uses 100% reclyed paper.

Red Ochre (Aquatic shown on building behind)

A reed bed is used as a natural process of cleansing waste water by passing it through a mixture of reeds. This is good for biodiversity being situated in a place where insects are happy live and providing habitat for a range of creatures like voles, mice and otters. Renewable Electricity The company has been with Ecotricity for years! The office is run on renewable energy as they also generate a surplus of electricity from their little PV array which is sold back to the grid.

CHARACTER, DEPTH & PRESENCE The owners of this luxury renovation in London were looking for a wall and ceiling finish with character, depth and presence to bring comfort into the vast, airy spaces of this stunning room. Clay plasters, with their natural ability to buffer acoustics, thermal variation and moisture provided a breathtaking solution with not only natural beauty, but practical benefits. Added advantages are that being naturally pigmented, these difficult to access areas will never need painting and that the clay will eliminate glare.

Multi award-winning firm Clayworks created this distinctive and sophisticated finish with their White, Non-Mica Smooth Top Coat and was specified by specialist developers Evolve Production Services and applied by Clayworks’ Lead Plasterer Guy Valentine. Clayworks manufacture all of their plasters in Cornwall and have teams of accredited specialist plasterers around the world. Recyclable, reusable, compostable and 100% biodegradable, clay plasters are superior to classic polished cement and composed of natural materials that are the perfect choice for environmentally

conscious property developers, architects, builders and designers being nontoxic and not made from synthetic materials. With a varied colour palette and a multitude of textures to choose from, Clayworks’clay plasters also provide a flexible medium in which bespoke finishes can be incorporated. Using Japanese hard-trowel or sponging techniques, a sleek finish perfectly mimicking polished cement can be achieved, or alternatively you can opt for a more industrial textured finish. Designs and artwork can also be carved, stamped or handcrafted into the finish, perfect for businesses seeking to combine graphics within their interior decoration schemes.

Clayworks is an independent business based in the South West of England. Established in 2002 by Adam Weismann and Katy Bryce, Clayworks is based in Cornwall where it manufactures natural clay plaster for the architectural and interior design industries. Leading the field in the development of environmentally friendly architecture and the design of healthy living and working environments Clayworks is now considered an industry expert and were awarded Small Business of the Year Award 2015 by Business Green Leaders.

Presents: A sculpture of light and shadow


The collection IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE is a combination between a material that comes from the regeneration of the fiber of PET bottles, an innovative project based on a mathematical program and the wise use of the latest generation sources to create a unique relationship between light and shadow.


DOWN TO THE WIRE The inspiration for this charming and decorative series came while Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen were visiting a Japanese-inspired garden in L.A The garden had custom made standing and hanging displays with flowers and light and together with the Japanese trees and small fountains it transformed the garden into a beautiful new kind of Art Deco. The series consists of two elegant bases for cosy oil lamps or beautifully floating flower arrangements.

The Copenhagen-based studio, NORM (founded in 2008) represents the vision of two Danish architects and designers: Jonas BjerrePoulsen and Kasper Rønn. The name NORM indicates the importance of drawing inspiration from traditions and norms that have been refined for many centuries within the field of architecture and aesthetics. In all their work and design, NORM makes it a virtue to focus on quality, durability and timelessness.

As their names imply Wire Base 200, 400 and 600 are either 200, 400 or 600mm high. On top of these elegant bases you can put a cosy Oil Disc to light up the terrace, the patio or all along the driveway – or a charming

pot for green plants, fresh herbs or lovely flowers. Mix and match between heights and contents and create your own tableau displays inside the house, or outside – or maybe even both.

Fauvisimo is the stunning new fabric collection from Harlequin, which was launched in January 2016. Its prints, which feature British birds, flowers and landscapes, are stunning in their spontaneous, liberated interpretation of the inherent beauty of nature and its intensity of colour.

DÉCOR Magazine


The collection was designed by the Harlequin Studio’s Becky Brown, who explains:

“I’ve always been fascinated by artistic movements of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries and I love experimenting with confident colours, uninhibited sweeping brushstrokes and painterly effects. For Fauvisimo, I applied paint by scraping it on in thick daubs using a palette knife, building texture and pattern through layers and embosses. I wanted to eliminate fine detail, instead creating a representational, abstract shape or composition.”

Fluid and energetic, the hand-painted designs are invigorating and tactile. Comprising prints, embroideries, jacquards and weaves, Fauvisimo’s refreshing fabrics, with their strong emphasis on colour, will add ebullience and character to any interior scheme. The prints, some of which are produced digitally to accommodate the vibrant colours and depth of design, feature overblown peonies, foxgloves,

tulips and sprays of blossom and pussy willow, as well as abstract stripes and block-effects. They are complemented by enchanting representations of small birds perched on branches, both printed on voile and embroidered, and intricately stitched papery poppies, as well as jacquards featuring ombré colours and stripes resembling dripping paint and spun sugar.

The layering of rich, contrasting tones develops warmth and energy against the cooler backdrop of natural cloth. The powerful colour palette ranges from cobalt blues and deep magentas to moody greys, sultry black and on-trend mustards, and includes softer highlights of muted greens, blush pinks and honey shades. To complement Fauvisimo the Studio has developed four suitably painterly weaves suitable for both drapes and upholstery, which together form the Sgraffito range. In a choice of cotton-mix or wool-mix, these stunning woven fabrics include a semi-plain, a small chevron check, a tweedy weave and an eye-catching motif resembling freely applied brushstrokes.

“We’ve loved Safomasi’s prints ever since we saw them at India Design ID last year. It was a real pleasure working with Sarah and Maninder. The hard part was restricting the selection to just a few of their beautiful patterns.”

“It was really exciting for us to see our prints come to life on Iqrup + Ritz’s beautifully crafted furniture. I love the earthy colour palette that we developed together, so different from our original colour ways but it works brilliantly.”

The legendary Blue Room at the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club reopens, designed by Timothy Oulton In downtown L.A, the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club recently unveiled its reinvigorated Blue Room, designed by Timothy Oulton. This exclusive members-only speakeasy forms part of the Los Angeles Athletic Club’s multi-million dollar renovations, celebrating over 100 years of heritage with a fresh, modern reinvention. The Los Angeles Athletic Club (LAAC) was the city’s first private club, founded back in 1880. The original Blue Room opened in 1912 and was where the LAAC’s influential Uplifters Club was formed in 1913, counting Walt Disney and Clark Gable amongst its prestigious members.

Having been run by the same family for six generations, the LAAC remains a cultural institution in the city. When they approached Timothy Oulton to recreate the legendary Blue Room it seemed like the perfect pairing. Tim Oulton explains: “Heritage and authenticity are hugely instrumental in everything we do so this was an exciting collaboration, to put our stamp on such an iconic landmark. The idea of hosting, creating inspiring spaces where people can relax together and connect, that’s what our collections are all about, whether it’s in your own home or in a setting like the Blue Room.“

DÉCOR Magazine


The four week project to transform the fourth floor conference room into a sophisticated lounge and bar was headed up by Timothy Oulton’s team, led by Global Style Directors, Danielle Monti-Morren and Raoul Morren. Work began by taking down the false ceiling to expose the pipework and spraying the ceiling black. The old carpet was lifted up and the concrete underneath was polished to create an edgy, industrial look. During the LAAC’s renovations, a longforgotten hidden staircase was unearthed between the third and fourth floor; a clandestine passage used during Prohibition in the 1920s. It was decided to turn this into the main entrance for the Blue Room, celebrating the club’s heritage and adding a sense of humour and playfulness to the project. A trick bookcase in the third floor bar now opens on to the intriguing secret stairwell, where black walls are covered from floor to ceiling with framed photographs chosen from the LAAC’s archives, each one telling a piece of the club’s history. Up the staircase and into the Blue Room, black walls provide a dramatic yet neutral backdrop for the furnishings. An accent wall of Oxford Blue creates depth and coordinates with the existing shutters that frame the huge windows.

108 DÉCOR Magazine

The layout has been designed with several intimate areas; to create a place to hold a meeting or small private dinner, or to relax with friends over a vintage movie. The whole space can also be taken over and used for a private party. Unlike anything else in the LAAC building, the Blue Room has its own unique vibe, it’s a club within a club. In one candle-lit corner, Timothy Oulton’s signature flair for juxtaposing the classic

with the contemporary is brought to life in the hand-softened leather Scholar armchairs and Westminster Union Jack sofa. Industrial elegance pervades the Axel coffee and side tables, handmade from reclaimed boat wood, and Gyro lamps inspired by ancient navigational instruments. An old projector and movie screen are set up to enjoy some black and white classics, perhaps a Charlie Chaplin favourite - one of the LAAC’s most famous residents.

DÉCOR Magazine


More of the club’s athletic heritage furnishes the walls with a gallery of photographs alongside Match Point, an art work created from vintage wooden tennis rackets. A refined Crystal chandelier hangs in contrast above the rustic oak Boston dining table topped with distressed aluminium, ready to host conversation next to the cocktail and whisky bar, sponsored by renowned Scotch whisky brand The Macallan. Sharing Timothy Oulton’s passion for authentic craftsmanship, The Macallan uses traditional distillery methods at their 300 year old estate in the Highlands, a perfect pairing with LAAC’s rich heritage.

110 DÉCOR Magazine

Vintage curiosities appear everywhere, from the violin medley above the huge Drum bookcase to rows of artfully arranged hockey sticks and shin pads. The team scoured the building for memorabilia, from books and art to the trophies that sit proudly on the American Lockers, which act as liquor lockers for The Macallan’s “by the bottle” list, so members can dip into their favourite single malt at leisure. Timothy Oulton’s signature Pillar of Knowledge – a floor to ceiling tower of books – is planted with a dozen books written by original members of the LAAC’s Uplifters Club.

A quiet nook by the window exudes the air of a classic gentlemen’s lounge. Seated around brass Drum side tables, inspired by 19th century British military drums, oversized leather wingchairs offer decadent comfort under the mellow glow of more Crystal chandeliers. A crate of vintage playing cards suggests a long evening ahead, perhaps a few games of blackjack over whisky.

On the design of the Blue Room, Danielle Monti-Morren explains;

ABOUT LOS ANGELES ATHLETIC CLUB The Los Angeles Athletic Club (LAAC) was the city’s first private club. Founded in 1880, the LAAC joined a downtown core of businesses that included prominent Angelenos, sons of the pioneers, and adventurers. Throughout the years, Los Angeles Athletic Club membership has read like a “Who’s Who” of the city, with names like Lankershim, Chandler, Dockweiler, Doheny, O’Melveny, and Slauson. During the Golden Age of Hollywood, stars such as Mary Pickford, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Harold Lloyd, Johnny Weissmuller, and Charlie Chaplin congregated at the club. The LAAC eventually outgrew its original quarters and in 1912, moved to its current location at the corner of 7th and Olive Streets. Today, the LAAC is regarded as one of the top athletic facilities in Los Angeles, offering an array of activities including basketball, squash, swimming, personal training, and spa services.

INNOVATIVE INTERIORS from Patricia Urquiola

Spanish by birth, and Italian by choice, Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain and studied architecture in Madrid before graduating from the Milan Politecnico in 1989. The key words for her work are: rigour and emotion, innovation and mental comfort. She was mentored by some of the masters of Italian industrial design: Achille Castiglioni oversaw her graduate thesis, and Vico Magistretti, with whom she designed her first projects. She learned her craft in Italy, and opened a studio in Milan in 2001, where she has developed a truly global enterprise. Some highlights from her career include her encounter with Maddalena de Padova (1990), her collaboration with Piero Lissoni(1996-2000), and her partnership with Patrizia Moroso (since 1998).

Patricia Urquiola’s work is widely known to be playful and poetic, yet pragmatic and functional, a creative combination that is the magic behind her work. She comes and goes through conventional time - rethinking, reinventing, and creating new. The effect is a powerful reminder of the past and exploration into the now, always creating a new experience for the user.

Her designs are unconventional, emphatic, and experimental, blending humanist sensibilities and technical expertise – qualities that also come from her work as an architect. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona is one of her many architectural projects. She has received numerous accolades and awards over the years, and in 2011 she was awarded the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes and the Order of Isabella the Catholic by King Juan Carlos I of Spain.

Another of her latest venture is a collection of gorgeous glazed porcelain tiles which are suitable for both wall and floor applications. Available in three colourways – Nero, Grigio and Bianco – each range is available in a selection of plain and patterned pieces which can be combined to make up to 27 different patterns. What makes these tiles so interesting is the use of visual texture, pattern and colour and the flexibility the range offers to the designer. The tiles can be grouped similarly (as seen above) to create repetitive patterns or laid in a seemingly random fashion but within a simple colour scheme (as seen left) to create an amazing visual dynamic.

There was a time when fashion designers simply dressed models’ parading there wears down the catwalk. However over the last few years there has been a shift in trend and today fashion designers and brands have invaded the home. At this seasons Milan furniture fair over 30 fashion brands participated and whilst we have come to expect names such as Roberto Cavalli, Versace and Armani Casa it is the rise in collaborations between furniture brand and fashion designers that seems to be expanding. Emillio Pucci has joined forces with Phillipe Stark, Jean Paul Gautier has continued his collaboration with French retailer Roche Bobois and began a new partnership with textile company Lelièvre and Henry Holland the eccentric British designer has teamed up with Habitat to release his first interior collection. So why are so many designers heading towards interiors design? The answer is simply designers want to engrain there brand into every element of our lives. Financially not all fashion designers can do this which is why we see an increase in the number of collaborations

HENRY HOLLAND FOR HABITAT The limited edition collection will feature a series of artwork from the SS16 House of Holland season translated across both textiles and upholstery. The House of Holland x Habitat collection is due for release in May 2016.

between furniture brands and fashion designers, but by collaborating with a high-end fashion designer furniture brands can enter into an ‘private members club’ of glamour which encircles the fashion world opening up a whole new element of clientele. For instance Poltrona Frau the upmarket Italian leather furniture maker last year joined forces with Alexander Wang and many considered this an unexpected collaboration given the laid back style of Wang, but for Poltrona Frau the collaboration enabled them to tap into a new market: a younger market. Visa-versa, more and more fashion designers are preferring to collaborate with fashion brands because it adds a new revenue streams to their portfolio because after all there are only so many little black dresses that anyone can buy, but with interiors which is constantly evolving they bring with them a whole new market share.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER FOR LELIĂˆVRE This 1st collection explores the evolving creativity and signature codes of Gautier producing eight textile creations. Presented in soft, bright or tonic tones according to the seasons, the collection pays homage to 2016 as the Chinese year of the Dragon. Within the collection are; cushions, throws, curtains and rugs.

The collaboration brings forth a juxtaposition of casual comfort, with refined elegance.

“Our new additions are part of a host of fresh creations for this season’s collection. I am delighted to continue to create pieces that reflect our ever-evolving yet timeless designs throughout 2016.”

SPEND A THIRD OF YOUR LIFE IN FIRST CLASS Savoir the go-to for luxury sleeping brand with over 100 years of expertise creating inspiring designs, has unveiled its new line of beds. The company which began in 1905 as a high end custom tailoring factory catering to the Savoy Hotel still upholds the glamour and glitz of the silver screen days, but maintain clean lines and a modern feel.

The LV bed draws upon traditional Chinese culture for inspiration. Its design comes from the lines of the “LuoHan” couch, which Chinese culture designated for masters and dignitaries. The bed features smooth lines, but only to contrast its powerful presence. LV’s team in Shanghai handcrafts the rosewood bed and its brass feet, which takes a total of 520 hours.

The company holds a prestigious reputation for the utmost in design and luxury, and its three new beds certainly carry on its tradition for excellence.

The State 02 bed was designed by in-house Savoir artisans, who wanted to create a new perspective on a classic design. The bed features clean colours of grey and walnut, with clean lines to match. The artisans intend for this piece to anchor the room, especially as the centrepiece of a master bedroom.

The Rose Quartz colour of the Amelia Bed is right on trend, as is its delicate, feminine charm. It features boldly curved lines and brass accessories, with a light wool finish to soften its stateliness.

Furniture designer & maker and self-confessed nemophilist: Meet the creative force behind Tree Couture and read her somewhat unorthodox back-story covering Amazonian dolphins to French tongue-twisters.


Beginnings It never bothered me as a child that everyone seemed to know which direction their lives would take and I had no idea where mine would go. People were always projecting brilliant career paths onto me but I never really took much notice of them. What I wanted to develop more than anything was my innate sense of adventure. I wanted to allow my insatiable curiosity and unfettered imagination to explore new, exciting realms and lead me to many wonderful experiences and adventures. So I jumped on a plane and it all started from there... 144 DÉCOR Magazine

TRAVEL I lived in St Tropez at 18, Marseille at 19, Madrid at 22 and El Escorial at 23. I bought a one-way ticket to Rio de Janeiro at the age of 24 where I stayed on and off until I was 34, visiting 25 of Brazil’s 26 states and spending a total of 18 months in the Amazonian rainforest. I have visited many other extraordinary lands and now live in London - completing the circle from where I started.

At a very early age I discovered in me a profound love of The Animal Kingdom. At the same time I realised what unconditional love meant. Jazz clubs. I spotted both The Love of My Life (and knew he was The One) and my loveliest friends across a particular smoky jazz club in London. I discovered the musical genius of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira.

I have lived in a 13-bedroomed mansion, city apartments, a favela, a wooden Amazonian house on stilts (that I helped to build), hotels, some sofas, a cell and a little chalet in the mountains overlooking a lake.

LANGUAGE I speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. I think differently in each language I am speaking and am far wittier outside my mother tongue than within it.

As a consequence, I have developed a very good sense of spatial awareness and a great appreciation of the importance of connecting with one’s environment. LOVES & PASSIONS Trees and wood. The most versatile and sustainable resource on earth. And to me, by far the most precious and beautiful. Great design such as when it takes your breath away with its seeming simplicity, its effortless functionality, and its timeless quality, and makes you scream out: I wish I’d come up with that?

I dreamt in fluent Portuguese before I could speak it. I was taught by a young excitable group of indigenous kids from Amazonia a great tongue twister relating to a native snake – and I can still say it really fast, even after a few caipirinhas: surucucu-picode-jaca-na-macacarecuja! My sister recently taught me a French one: Ton thé t’a-t-il ôté ta toux! I also was given an audio cassette course in Cantonese by the late great poet Ivor Cutler, but I haven’t progressed so far with that. While I can’t speak ‘blackbird’, I have learnt to understand many of its nuances thanks to the constant

chattering of Crouch and Mrs Crouch our workshop blackbirds. EXPERIENCE I have a language/ business degree and qualifications in advanced cabinet-making and wood machining. I have set up and run three companies and a language school in Copacabana, run a sleep laboratory in Harley Street (and learnt to analyse sleep patterns), worked as a translator, a stringer and a journalist for the first ever environmental Earth Summit, been an environmental correspondent for a news agency and taken small groups across Brazil and the Andean countries. I learnt to swim in Wales, dive in Kenya, ski in Austria and hang glide in Brazil. I have driven a JCB through the streets of Tottenham, swam backstroke with a spirited female spider monkey (a species we are told cannot and does not swim) in the black Amazonian waters of the Juma In those same waters spent many hours with the almost mystical botos – the enigmatic pink river dolphins, landed a passenger plane in Brasilia, sailed three times across the high altitude lakes of the Andes, walked the Inca trail and experienced an earthquake in Cuzco. I was also once thrown 15 feet into the air by a tiny 80 year old woman in a Candomblé trance. CHALLENGES I was the recipient of 142 mosquito bites after one night car-camping on a Florida beach, and 197 bites after a week in the tropical wetlands of the Pantanal. I have contracted two strains of malaria from my time in the Amazon. Mosquitoes are the only creatures I kill – mercilessly. I got snow-blinded in the Alps, had my eye pop out of its socket in London, broke my toe in Brazil, broke

my heart in Spain, split my head open on the Isle of Wight and was dragged from the sea when drowning in Brazil. I got frost-bitten ears in Austria and 48 hours later got the same ears sunburnt in Australia. DISCOVERIES I have undertaken research in gemstones in Australia and Venezuela, studied thalassotherapy in France, sleep patterns in London and projectiology in Brazil. I investigated illegal international child adoption in South America and worked with NGOs to expose the racket. ART & DESIGN I always felt a dreadful anxiety in my school art class as I could barely draw a straight line freehand. Now I can - with the aid of a ruler. But I came into my own when I put down the pencil and paintbrush and started to model clay, or cut lino, or construct collages, or fold paper.

Much later in life I realised that I was a 3D kinda girl, and gratefully left the 2D to the fine artists. After first trying out my hand(s) at woodwork – having been so inspired by a little dalliance with rather aesthetically crude but wholly effective joinery in the Amazon working with the locals on the timber for their homes, shelters, dug-outcanoes, utensils, tools etc, I realised that not only did I absolutely adore the medium of wood to work in, but I had a natural aptitude for it. It felt strangely familiar and, after my first ever class, I secreted some wood shavings home with me and ate them. I went on to immerse myself in study and practical application in the brilliant cabinet making department at the London Metropolitan University (which was formerly the London College of Furniture) and from there set up an all-girl furniture making business – New Leaf Furniture Makers, with the only other two women on my course. We made gorgeous bespoke pieces and developed a highly acclaimed business whose work was featured in all the quality Sunday supplements, a multitude of interiors magazines and a number of celebrated exhibitions. I learnt to design through necessity. Having talent in furniture making was no use if you couldn’t design the pieces you wanted to make. Once I got over the initial terror, I let my inhibitions go and found I loved it too and have over the years refined my own individual style. DÉCOR Magazine


TROO TO HER WORD Troo’s vision when starting her business was to cater to a gaping chasm in the market for individual pieces of exceptionally high-quality creation and design, preferring in this age of homogeneity to create handcrafted pieces that are personal and very special limited-editions, for her ever-expanding clientele. All pieces are individually numbered, branded (with a beautiful, discreet inlaid maker’s mark) and made in strictly limited numbers.

Tree Couture is an exciting young British Furniture House, fronted by talented and innovative female furniture designermaker Troo Heath-Crew. Together with a small team of exceptionally talented cabinet-makes, she produces small and exclusive artisan collections for discerning clients across the world, all from their vibrant London atelier.

Tree Couture was borne out of Troo’s passion for trees and timber as well as a desire to craft this incredibly strong and versatile natural material into pieces that bring style, beauty, functionality and longevity into people’s lives. Like couturiers working within the realm of haute couture, Tree Couture is defined by its use

of the very finest materials and its dedicated craftsmanship. Wood has an inherently adventurous nature it loves embracing other materials and Tree Couture loves introducing it to luxurious buttery leathers, silk-fused glass and cool metals as well as a host of other inspiring and innovative partners.

One aspect of Tree Couture furniture that sets it apart from the vast majority of other fine furniture is that it is made exclusively from solid, hand-selected, perfectly seasoned hardwoods. Thin veneers and MDF are avoided for their lack of durability and ‘shallow’ appearance. In line with

Tree Couture’s commitment to sustainability and ethical provenance, these hardwoods are always sourced from wellmanaged, sustainable forests. Furthermore, for every piece of Tree Couture furniture created, a native sapling hardwood tree is planted in a beautiful arboretum in Herefordshire.

Atelier Hidden away in a vibey little historical mews in North London, once home to an old dairy, nestles Tree Couture’s Atelier and Design Studio. By infusing light and love into what was a dark, abandoned and derelict workshop, we have created a warm, vibrant and inspirational space which lies at the heart of every one of our furniture creations. From the germination of the initial seed of a design, its drawing up, prototyping and testing, right through all the hundreds of wide-ranging processes in the making of a piece of solid hardwood furniture, Tree Couture’s unique and charming atelier is a creative hub and a constant hive of activity.

of joints, chiselling out of recesses for hinges, locks and escutcheons, inlaying of contrasting wood or fine metals or the painstaking application of fine leather-work, our handmade workbenches never have a dull moment. Despite the huge amounts of hard work we do at the Tree Couture atelier, there is a lot of joy in our little space, and we feel confident that this joy distils down into each of our furniture pieces which then hopefully in turns flows on into the lives of their owners that welcome them into their homes!

The ‘mill’, our main workshop area, accommodates a host of glorious woodworking machines – our ‘Iron Maidens’ (or simply just our ‘Girls’) – each of which has a highly specific role to play in the conversion of timber - from rough-sawn planks, to perfectly flat, smooth, dimensioned components on which to carry out the intricate handwork. From band saw, rip saw, cross-cut saw, dimension saw, to planer, thicknesser, spindle moulder, drill press, sander and linisher, each of our maidens helps us to cut, shape, surface, edge, drill and sand our hand-selected planks of sustainable hardwoods in the first part of their journey towards becoming a beautiful piece of furniture. The work we do here in this large brick vault of a room with its cathedralesque roof and its countless metres of industrial ducting is quite heavy-duty and not for the faint-hearted or flimsy-muscled! It’s noisy, and rather dusty and, given all the perfectly honed and sharpened saw blades, knives, belts and cutters, is not without its dangers, but it’s also exhilarating and utterly rewarding to be able to transform rough, twisted, dusty planks into smooth, elegant and clean precision-cut wood components. Our bench studio is a much calmer place, bright and white and flooded with sunshine in the summer months. It is here we carry out all our handcrafting. Benchwork effectively involves everything that is carried out using small portable power tools or hand-tools. Whether it’s the precision-cutting

ALL WORK AND NO PLAY Three days in the office and two at home is the formula for perfect productivity Researchers have discovered the secret to ultimate work place productivity three days in the office and two days working from home. According to a study of 1,019 British office workers by Hammonds, 82 percent said they would be more productive if they could split their working week with a ratio of 3 days in the office to two at home. However, although the perfect balance includes two days at home - 52 percent of home-workers admitted to having a daily “siesta” – and a further eleven percent admitted working the day from their BED. As for bosses, 34 percent said they were ‘flexible’ in terms of home working – but an old-fashioned 20 percent said they preferred their team to do a traditional 9 – 5. And 2 percent of bosses said they do not trust their staff and want them where they can see them. However, more than half (54 percent of bosses) claimed they were happy for their staff to work from home for some - or even all of the week as long as the job was done. When asked to rate their overall productivity out of ten, the typical score was 7.4 at work, and 6.7 at home – on average. Kirsty Oakes, a spokesperson for Hammonds Furniture, which commissioned the study said: “With working from home becoming increasingly popular in the UK, it is interesting to discover that dedicated work spaces aren’t considered a necessity, with people opting to work from their sofa, the kitchen table or even the bed!

“Having a dedicated space for working from home will enable you to still be as productive and focused as being in the office. This doesn’t necessarily need to be a devoted office room but it should be more than just a desk in a spare room. You should consider storage, lighting and how much space you will need for your work.” It also emerged a large percentage make the most of working from home – by getting stuck into their workload in their pyjamas (10 percent) or even a onesie (9 percent). Eleven percent however opted for a more formal attire of shirt and tie to get them geared up for a day of home working.

And it seems while we would all love to have more time at home during the week, even if it means working, we are still jealous of those who do so. When asked how they felt about ‘home-workers’ 32 percent said they believed they ‘have it easy’, while 23 percent said ‘I work harder than them’. Kirsty Oakes, added: “At Hammonds we have developed a number of home office ranges and storage solutions that enable you to work from home efficiently whilst blending seamlessly throughout your home.” For more information visit: DÉCOR Magazine

HOME STAGING Steal some showroom style to sell your home

154 DÉCOR Magazine

Home staging is all about illusions, it’s more than decorating and cleaning, it’s about perfecting the art of creating moods. Home staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more loving and, best of all it makes home buyers want to buy it. Contrary to what you might think, it’s about more than just preparing the house for sale. Home staging is what you do after you’ve cleaned, de-cluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it’s all about dressing the house for sale.

DÉCOR Magazine



First and foremost. Get your house sparkling clean. From shining floors and gleaming windows to clean counters and scrubbed grout, every surface should sparkle. This is the easiest way to help your home put its best foot forward. Whatever you do don’t skimp - this step is key!


Use colour cleverly. Choose sophisticated neutral colours. Now is not the time to experiment with that “fun”-looking lime green. But that doesn’t mean you need to go all white, either. Rich mid-tone neutrals like mocha and “greige” create a sophisticated backdrop that makes everything look more pulled together.

156 DÉCOR Magazine


Add the right lighting. Lighting creates mood, so keep it light and bright in practical areas like your kitchen, whilst table lamps will add atmosphere and ambience to your living room and bedrooms.


Define each room. Your buyers need to know how they would use each room, if you have been using a spare bedroom as a dumping ground for odd pieces of furniture and boxes of junk, it’s time to clean up your act. Each room should have a clearly defined purpose, so think about what potential buyers might like to see here. An office? A guest room? Another kids’ room? Whether you buy inexpensive furnishings, rent them, or borrow some from friends, making a real room out of a junk room will have a big payoff.


Make rooms feel as spacious as possible. Mirrors and shiny surfaces help to bounce light around spaces, making them feel bigger. Try adding oversized mirrors to otherwise dim corners to really open them up. Remember, space adds value!


De-clutter. A potential homebuyer needs to picture themselves in your rooms, and quirky decorating or pictures hurts the illusion. Take the collectibles off the mantel and put the pet paraphernalia and children’s toys into storage.


Swap personal photos for stylish artwork. Nice pictures for your walls don’t have to be expensive; there are plenty of high street shops selling affordable wall art, and these will give your walls a real lift. Choose art that won’t offend (no nudes!) and try to pick out colours from your existing décor to add a sense of balance and harmony. DÉCOR Magazine



Give dated bathrooms a facelift. A nice bath helps sell a house but, don’t invest in a total renovation. Bring an out-ofdate bath up to date with gleaming white walls whether via a fresh coat of white bath and kitchen paint or ceramic tile and new lighting. Replace bathroom accessories with well-designed ones from a designer bath boutique. You can get matched ensembles that include toilet tissue holder, wastebasket, trays, etc. Aim for the hotel chic look: Crisp white towels neatly stacked in a towel holder, small trays on the vanity holding attractive toiletries or soaps (wrapped or unused) and scented candles.


Invest in new bedding. Cheap or old bedding can really devalue bedrooms, and make them feel dated. For a relatively small spend, you can transform your bedrooms with new bed sets and matching curtains chose neutral colours as this will again create space and light.


Create a gender-neutral master bedroom. Appeal to everyone with a clean, tailored master bedroom, free of personal items and clutter. You can’t go wrong with clean, crisp linens, tasteful artwork and a blanket folded at the foot of the bed.


Open those closets! Openhouse visitors will peek inside your closets. Closet space can be a make-it-or-break-it selling point for buyers, so show yours off to their full advantage by giving excess stuff the heaveho. Again, this is really important, so even if you need to store a few boxes elsewhere, it’s worth it. Aim to have 20 to 30 percent open space in each closet to give the impression of spaciousness.


The exterior of your home should look as polished as the interior. This means neatly trimmed bushes, mulched flowerbeds and fresh seasonal arrangements in urns by the front door. Think “tidy,” “update” and “refresh”: never do anything costly or major like adding a swimming pool or pond, which may put off potential buyers.

158 DÉCOR Magazine


A great smell makes a house memorable. Baking bread or brewing coffee have become a bit of a cliché, instead buy a room spray with a fragrance you love and spray the house sparingly before each showing. Home staging can be easy and inexpensive, especially if you focus on the small details. Then, just stand back and let your house shine and it is sure to impress potential homebuyers. 


Create a lifestyle people are looking for. Generally speaking, you want to play up what your neighbourhood or area is known for. Have a house in a quiet, grassy suburb? Hanging a hammock in your backyard and a bench swing on your porch could be the perfect touch.. DÉCOR Magazine

“DANISH DESIGN AT ITS BEST” The Metropolitan Chair, designed by Ejner Larsen & Aksel Bender Madsen in 1949, is distinguished by its admirable craftsmanship and excellent seating comfort. With its organic form and high quality of craftsmanship the Metropolitan chair falls within the golden era of furniture history, known as Danish Modern. Originally intended as a conference chair, the Metropolitan chair (LM92) went into production in 1950. The design is the result of many intense hours where Larsen and Bender Madsen designed and developed late into the night. The tensioned veneer back was inspired by a lamination technique course Benden Madsen had taken earlier. After a 1961 Danish export

campaign, the Metropolitan Museum in New York purchased the chair for its exhibition, The Arts of Denmark. The chair was consequently named the Metropolitan chair - probably one of the greatest honours a chair can earn. On the international design scene, the duo Ejner Larsen and Aksel Bender Madsen are far less known that designers like Hans J. Wegner. But upon closer inspection of their major work - the Metropolitan chair - one begins to understand their intuitive sense for world-class design and craftsmanship. The Metropolitan chair is offered in oak and walnut with various finish options and saddle leather upholstery in your choice of natural, cognac or black.

JEREMY COLE The award-winning artisan was immersed in the world of design at a young age. His earliest memories were watching his mother work in her interior design showroom in Wellington. This family business lent him a more active role through the years, until his departure for Great Britain in 1999.

In 2004, a visit to London’s Tate Modern carved his course. Cole had glanced through a book, seen the image of a near translucent ceramic vessel and was instantly inspired to explore the relationship between ceramics and light. The next day, he set out to understand and work with Bone china. Two months later he produced his first piece, the now iconic Aloe Blossom – and was invited to exhibit in Frankfurt. Predominantly selftaught, Cole has been courted by design companies such as Royal Copenhagen and Swarovski, but chose the path of the artisan. His philosophy rests on three points: Beauty, Elegance and Craftsmanship. Control over quality and production led to a ceramic studio in London. Creative triumphs off set ‘mad’ experimentation, and recognition of his brilliance grew worldwide. In 2008, a growing demand saw his studio move to the homeland of the ceramic industry, ‘The Potteries’ or Stoke on Trent and since then he has moved back to his homeland, New Zealand. Today, his flora-inspired collections are appreciated the world over. Not only admired for their contemporary style and timeless beauty, but also for the care and skill each handmade piece entails. Embracing traditional methods of production with his own modern flair, Cole is proud to employ some of the world’s most skilled ceramicists. Recognised by the London Chamber of Commerce as one of the UK’s leading manufacturers, Cole’s work has been displayed in museums and is included in prestigious interiors and architectural projects internationally. Fashion and jewellery houses, such as Bulgari, Harry Winston and Franck Muller, also seek out his unique light-forms. Jeremy Cole’s singular style is an expression of his homeland, New Zealand, and its distinctive and stunning flora. Light is gently captured in the glowing ceramic plant forms. What are also captured - and most evident - are exquisite craftsmanship, elegance and beauty. Pieces from his collections include the dramatic “White Flax”, consisting of 350 handcrafted ceramic leaves, specifically arranged for even light distribution that pushes the limits of its medium and craftsmanship and the beautiful “Cymbidium Chandelier” made from eight up lit porcelain cymbidium stems.

A contemporary project with an elegant design and a retro lighting inspiration

“I was influenced by the style of the Second Empire, while dreaming of the future” Designed by Gérard Faivre, the French revolutionary art homes concept creator who offers fully renovated, ready to live in, prestige apartments for sale, who single handily has revolutionized the Parisian world of luxury real estate is L’Appartement at Rue Bonapart an apartment which is an exceptional place where art, design, lights, music and scents create a unique and one of a kind experience.

Completed in December 2015, Gérard Faivre took inspiration from the French Revolution and has showcased this to maximum effect in every corner of the property. L’Appartement at Rue Bonapart is itself full of history: its construction dates from the year of 1880 during the major restructuring of Paris, decided by Napoleon Ill and directed by Baron Haussmann. The buildings on the street are

extremely exclusive with only one apartment per floor. “What interested me in this project is the preservation of the original construction, working with the marble, inlaid mirrors in workedwood. It was important for me when designing the apartment that I keep these characteristics as they really mark the time of the building. I composed here a bold staging inspired by the past, influenced by the style of the Second Empire, while dreaming of the future. We find the emblematic colours of that era: oranges, greens, blues and also the shades of gold that symbolized wealth, luxury and which bring an extra sparkle”, says Gérard. The designer is always looking for new designs and new brands that represent the luxury with which he can collaborate and use in his projects. Working with DelightFULL was a great experience. The brand is presented in the living room lighting with pieces like Ike Suspension Lamp above the dining table, Hendrix Wall Lamp above the sofa in the living room and also Donna Table Lamp on the fireplace. This collaboration between Gérard Faivre and DelightFULL turned out to be a very special, colourful and high-end residential project. The interior designer shares this experience in an intimate interview opposite.

An intimate interview with Gérard Faivre: THE ART HOMES CONCEPT CREATOR 1.

Where do you come from and what are your studies?

My studies were soon oriented by architecture. The death of my father forced me to take over the family’s company “Pret á Porter”. Therefore I spent about 30 years in this field as manufacturer, retailer end wholesaler. We produced and sold to supermarkets in France and abroad. In 1985, I met a designer and decided to found a brand in Paris named “Un dimanche dans nos Campagne”, a store where I mixed the sale of clothing, furniture and other items from all over the world. I was probably the pioneer of this concept store which was further replicated by notorious concept stores such as ‘Colette” in Paris. By chance, I met my wife in Saint Rémy de Provence, a town which was immortalized by Van Gogh’s paintings that made the whole world dream. Deeply in love we bought the first ‘Mas’ which we have fully restored and decorated. A person in the neighbourhood who witnessed this metamorphosis, fell in love with the property and decided to acquire the fully furnished place in order to keep the soul that I had created during the renovation. Later in 2000 I had the idea of selling completely renovated properties and “ready to live” apartments, fully decorated and furnished by myself. My second realization was found on a purchaser and the adventure began.


How did you decide to set up your business and why?

I have found that when a foreigner wants to buy a ‘Pied de Térre’ (a small living space) in Paris, or elsewhere, he has no choice but to

Gérard Faivre is a french revolutionary art homes concept creator who offers fully renovated, ready to live , prestige apartments for sale. It was back then in 1985 that he proved ro the world that he could be a pioneer but it was years later that he started in the business of transforming homes into real works of art. Inspired by the interior decors of the Second Empire, Faivre confesses that he imbues himself with the soul of each property and that each project is a unique piece of art. He was kind enough to answer some questions, let’s get to know him better.

go to a real estate agency, which introduces a seller and a buyer. This type of business representative does not really know it’s customer’s needs besides what is demanded on paper, therefore, this does not capture well the desire of the client, although some boast otherwise. They offer everything and anything leaving the client unhappy. The acquisition made, the customer is left alone and often helpless to show case this apartment. To the luxury clientele we work with is inconceivable to settle in a place already inhabited, although the work there has been made recently. They will eventually contract an interior designer, and renovate again the space in their own way. It’s a long journey! The distance between the customer and the seller, but also sometimes the fact that he still does not know what he really wants, requires a long time to develop the final plan of renovation/transformation of the space. Many concerns, works and tine (often more than 18 months) pass before the customer gets installed and uses his newly acquired Parisian “Pied a Térre”! Do not forget to talk about important issues such as prices that involve all of these steps. The customer knows the cost of acquisition, (usually referred as ‘price per m2’), but does not control the final total cost of the investment, so it is extremely important to keep the customer updated regarding these

costs. This clientele is accustomed and demands luxury and comfort for the interior design of their apartments, such as: technology (home automation, sound system, air conditioning, etc.). Faced with this difficult path, Gérard Faivre has a real trigger that leads to imagine what will remain his greatest creation: his own business ‘Art Home Maker’. The idea of having ‘’ready to live” luxury apartments allows him to explore its know-how, especially in real estate, architecture and home decoration. The process is as simple as innovative: buy a home that somehow has a great and inspiring feeling, renovate, modernize and decorate it, before finding its place on the property market. Fully furnished and equipped with the best technology, this house is ready to be bought and is habitable immediately. For the customer, there are many advantages to acquire properties signed as ‘Art Homes’. The name comes from comparing my work to the work of a painter. As a work of art, the buyer will immediately fall in love. The important difference is that if everything is not suitable, it is still possible to make some changes.


Where does your inspiration come from? And how do you work in team (i.e. who does what?) Like a work of art, to have value, it must remain unique! The challenge DÉCOR Magazine


is to never repeat the same project. For me each client is unique therefore its interior decor must be unique as well! Inspiration is in my heart and my imagination to go. Often the history of a space, a building, and even some iconic pieces, become a source of inspiration for my work. The name “Art Homes” also for my collaboration with artists (painters, sculptors, photographers) and amplifies the idea of my accomplishments. This allows artists to stage their works in a luxurious interior, and also, through our publications, they gain international recognition and meet fans worldwide.


How do you choose artisans and materials? And which are your favourite materials? To decorate prestigious locations, I collaborate with craftsmen who best represent the French “Savoir Faire’. I like to combine materials such as marble, wood, glass, fabrics and wallpapers. The goal is to create a perfect harmony for a unique place that will attract customers.


Tell us a little about L’Appartement at Rue Bonaparte. What was your inspiration? Gérard Faivre loves this area because it is the birthplace of the French Revolution and is also the district of

Literature. He chose this apartment on rue Bonaparte, as the name still evokes for many foreigners, a very important figure in our history. It is an apartment full of history: its construction dates from the 1880 during the major restructuring of Paris, decided by Napoleon II and directed by Baron Haussmann. The buildings on the street became more exclusive, only one apartment per floor, the second floor is the main floor and has a long balcony along the entire facade. This building, located 20 meters from St. Germain, perfectly matches what lovers search in Saint Germain des Prés. “What interested me in this project is the preservation of the original construction of the time, for example: the marble, inlaid mirrors in workedwood. I wanted to keep these characteristics as they really mark the time of the building. I composed here a bold staging inspired by the past, influenced by the style of the Second Empire, while dreaming of the future. We find the emblematic colours of that era: oranges, greens, blues and also the shades of gold that symbolized wealth, luxury and which bring an extra sparkle”. A foreign lover of authentic Paris style will find it very suitable.


How did you mix colours, materials, patterns and textures for this project? I was inspired by the colours (green orange and gold) and emblematic materials (velvet, wood, marble) that were found in the interior decors by time of the Second Empire. And which symbolized a certain “bourgeoisie”.


Do you have any favourite brands and designs for your projects? Which ones? I believe that every place is different, and I am always looking for new designers, new brands that represent the luxury with which I can collaborate and use in my projects.


What are your future projects and collections?

I recently finished a “Parisian” project at Rue du Cirque, a sublime apartment of 310 m2. I also finished another project at a prestigious location, close to the Arc de Triomphe.


Can you also tell me the date of the project? When was it finished? I am surrounded by a team that knows the time and requirements of my achievements (3-5 months maximum). The Bonaparte project was finished in early December.

WHY BUY A WOODEN BED? 6 Super Reasons from Warren Evans

DÉCOR Magazine


Wood is the oldest and one of the most commonly used engineering and building materials in the world. The earliest evidence for a domestic structure in Britain was that of a tent-like structure made with wooden supports dating to 7000 BC! Waren Evans love working with wood, here are just some of the reasons why we believe investing in a well made wooden bed is a good idea.

Previous page: Verona in Light Oak. With its chic contours and smoothly curved lines there’s no doubt that our Verona bed will make a stunning centrepiece in your room. Its most striking feature, the high arching headboard, serves as a perfect backrest to sit up and read in bed, whilst clean, straight lines in the footboard complete its elegant style. Below: Hazel in Elm. Our Hazel bed is one of warmth and character. It features an elegant design that has been expertly handcrafted to highlight the natural character and beauty of the wood. The solid headboard features inset curve detailing to create a striking focal point for your bedroom.

STYLE Wooden beds are stylistically versatile, looking chic and sophisticated in a modern, contemporary, traditional or country setting. And with wood you can choose from many different stains and finishes - to either complement and blend with your bedroom decor or to create a magical stand-out centrepiece that has the ‘wow’ factor.


SLEEP A great bed has two essential ingredients - a strong, attractive frame and a supportive, comfortable mattress. The wooden slats are 3/4in thick and 5 1/2ins wide. These wooden slats strengthen the frame and help air circulate so your mattress can breathe better. Improved breathability lets moisture dry out, so your mattress lasts longer. A drier environment also discourages dust mites, helping to alleviate allergies. All this means you will experience a better night’s sleep.


STRENGTH Wood is a wonderful renewable material to work with, it’s naturally tough and strong and toxic free so perfect for making beds with. Warren Evans use traditional, longlasting mortise and tenon joints, and FSCUK sustainably sourced wood and their thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship means they can give all of their wooden beds a 10-year guarantee.


LONGEVITY Wooden beds can literally last a lifetime, especially if they are made well. Wooden finishes work well with many interior styles but if you fancy a change you can always sand, re-stain or paint your wooden bed. Whether you’re upcycling or refurbishing, a wooden bed can develop as your tastes and decor change.


PRACTICAL Wooden beds are extremely easy to clean – just wipe any dirt or dust away with a damp cloth. As the surface is protected with a lacquered finish they tend to take knocks and scrapes well – and there’s no major dilemmas when moving home or room as wooden beds can be taken apart with relative ease. And at Warren Evans they can customise your wooden bed – their craftsmen can make the bed a little wider or longer or taller.

Above: The Almond bed showcases beautifully rounded corners and a uniquely designed headboard to compliment the natural patterns and character of the wood. This warm and inviting bed has been expertly handcrafted with a solid, sturdy frame and exquisite woodwork – quite simply a bed-maker’s dream.


COST Wood doesn’t require a lot of energy for its production so its costs are low compared with other, man made materials. Warren Evans have a greater advantage as they make, sell and deliver all of thir own wooden beds, so there’s no middle-men pushing costs up. So do you need any more reason to invest in a beautiful wooden bed – we think not!

All items are skilfully made to order, handcrafted by real people in our London workshop, and built to last using traditional carpentry methods of mortise and tenon joints. All of their timber comes from responsibly managed forests, meaning that you can buy from them confident in the knowledge that your bed frame or furniture has been made with as little impact on the environment as possible.

Bathroom Trends 2016

INNOVATION & INSPIRATION What are today’s customers looking for when it comes to planning a new bathroom installation or renovation? What do they expect from their bathroom? Cutting across the great diversity of choice available in the market, we can identify six key trends currently shaping bathroom design. Villeroy & Boch is one of the world’s leading premium brands for ceramic products. The family business, which was founded in 1748 and is headquartered in Mettlach/Germany, stands for innovation, tradition and exceptional style. As a renowned lifestyle brand, Villeroy & Boch offers products from the sectors Bathroom and Wellness and Tableware, and is active in 125 countries.

Trend 1: COMFORT

People with pressurised working lives and lots of demands on their leisure time are looking above all for comfort in their home. Features designed to enhance daily use are in demand in bathrooms too, with this area even a priority in some cases. In particular for a second bathroom, customers are looking for exceptional comfort combined with timeless design.

Bathroom collections such as Villeroy & Boch’s Vivia series address this need with a range of clever features, including a shower panel with a concealed dry area, a stool offering integrated storage and an extra-deep washbasin with a wide surround. To create a comfortable flush-fitting effect in the shower area, customers can opt for a Subway Infinity or Squaro Infinity shower base,available in a wide selection of standard sizes as well as customised dimensions to meet special design requirements and spatial constraints.

Interior designers have been interested in colourful effects in bathrooms for decades. In addition to classic white, the last few years have seen growing demand for harmonious tone-on-tone effects with soft wood and earth shades or striking contrasts using anthracite and grey. From living rooms and kitchens, perfectly balanced colour concepts are now appearing in bathrooms too. Yellow, red, blue and green, in every conceivable hue, are in vogue. ogether with the successful interior designer Gesa Hansen, Villeroy & Boch has developed fifteen harmonious shades to create a new dual-colour concept for its Artis washbasins. And there is now a bright new twist on bathing pleasure too: the La Belle, Squaro Edge 12 and Loop&Friends free-standing baths are also revealing a new dual-colour look. Shiny white inner surfaces meet colourful side panels, with over 200 shades to choose from. The Colour on Demand concept is expanding the selection of fifteen rosé, blue, yellow and green tones and the black-white look developed by Gesa

Trend 2: COLOUR

Hansen for the Artis series with a wide spectrum of standard RAL or NSC colours in matt or glossy finishes. And colourful effects are livening up bathroom furniture too: in addition to natural wood effects, trendy colours such as Black Matt Lacquer for the Legato series and Crystal Blue for Avento are making bold statements in bathrooms.

The retro look and vintage style are as popular as ever and this nostalgic feel is another strong trend in bathroom design. Bathroom ceramics and furniture infused with the charm of bygone days serve as a visual reminder to slow down and relax in today’s fast-paced world Their balanced proportions and classic shapes create a sense of continuity and security. Familiar styles are being rediscovered and given contemporary new twists. Resulting in bathroom series such as Villeroy & Boch’s Hommage - nostalgic charm meets modern functionality in a premium bathroom collection designed to meet the most discerning requirements.


Trend 4: RETRO

Reflecting the trend in kitchens, the bathroom is increasingly becoming a living space. A homely and comfortable atmosphere is particularly important for an area in daily use, devoted to personal hygiene, well-being and relaxation. Recognising the key role of bathroom furniture in this respect, Villeroy & Boch offers elegant wood-effect veneers for various ranges. The selection extends from light elm to dark walnut, a White Wood finish, permeated with hints of wood grain, for a modern look and the trendy new Black Matt Lacquer for a warm feel. Not forgetting the stylish dual-colour concepts, which also create a very homely atmosphere with their understated or eye-catching effects. DÉCOR Magazine



People have always been attracted by the lure of city living and increasing population density in urban areas is placing constraints on available living space. Faced with high rents and rising property prices, more and more city dwellers are living in small spaces. To create a practical and yet attractive bathroom in such situations, you need clever and inspired solutions. Such as sanitary ceramics combining compact dimensions with perfect comfort and functionality; or clever furniture systems with generous surfaces and storage areas to make maximum use of available space. These are just two examples of the options available in various Villeroy & Boch bathroom collections, including Architectura and O.novo.

Perhaps the strongest mega-trend at the moment is personalisation. People are looking for products that reflect their own personal preferences and taste. From fashion to cars or holidays... today’s consumers are demanding features, products and concepts which they can choose and combine precisely according to their visions and needs. Villeroy & Boch has responded to this trend in its products - customised shower bases, coloured washbasins, Colour on Demand for baths, intelligent furniture platforms which can be combined with different washbasins and fittings, as well as a selection of veneers and furniture handles open up lots of creative scope for personalised solutions.

Majestic Oak Furniture by

PHILIPP ROESSLER It all started when I was looking for a great table for a centerpiece in my own apartment. A table is the most important piece of furniture for me - a place to be with friends, to cook dinner and enjoy the company.

Philipp Roessler is the founder of furniture design studio NUTSANDWOODS. The oak trees from which they make the furniture have been growing for more than 100 years. Each piece has its own story. 192 DÉCOR Magazine

I coud not find the right table for me. Most of the tables out there were either over designed or too rough and rustic. I wanted a mixture of natural and contemporary.

I finally decided to build my own table and as a digital designer, I drew some sketches in photoshop and crafted out the first table in the garden of my girlfriend’s father’s house. So many people asked me about the table, so I took a few pictures and built a website for it. It was soon shared on pinterest and reached search result no1. People as far away as Australia were asking my table! I started to like the idea of building my own furniture and decided to put more of my ideas into action. Now we have a full collection from sofas to cabinets to lights.

GO ULTRA NATURAL Do you think neutral colors are boring? We are going to debunk the myth that bold is better. Of course, there is always room for pops of coloUr in your life, but there are a lot of good reasons to stick with a neutral coloUr scheme for your interior design.

194 DÉCOR Magazine

Neutral colors don’t have to be boring! In fact, a calm, neutral backdrop allows you to bring out some pretty bold elements into your design that may otherwise look garish. So, put down that can of red paint, at least for a moment. Neutral colours are reliable decorating tool, providing welcoming visual breaks, excellent backdrops and soothing moods, depending on how you treat them. Versatile neutral color palettes create nobility and elegance that become accents through the shape of space of your home.

DÉCOR Magazine



o ultra natural We often get the misconception that if we can’t choose the right color scheme than settling for neutral colors is unadventurous and lifeless. On the contrary! Neutrals don’t have to just stem from the beige and tan color family! Start with warm gold, rich camel browns, buttery cream colors and greige are a few neutrals that are anything but boring! Use them in conjunction with black, heather gray, and chocolate brown to put a new twist on neutral colors.

Homeowners are renovating their kitchens to create a “super kitchen” that not only serves multiple purposes but also incorporates features, functions and decor traditionally associated with other rooms, dramatically blurring the lines between the kitchen and other living spaces, according to the 2016 Houzz Kitchen Trends Survey.

The survey of homeowners using Houzz who are in the midst of, are planning, or recently completed a kitchen renovation project found that these kitchens go far beyond cooking and baking, with 69 percent using the space for eating and dining, and nearly half for entertaining (49 percent) and socializing (43 percent). In addition, more than a quarter of renovating homeowners use their kitchen as a homework space (25 percent), one in five watches TV (19 percent), and 14 percent read. As the hub of such activity, nearly two-thirds of homeowners spend more than three hours a day in their kitchens (60 percent). Further blurring the lines between the functional and living areas of their homes, nearly half of renovating homeowners are making their kitchens more open to other living spaces (48 percent), with 46 percent of kitchens completely open to other interior spaces postrenovation. One in five updated kitchens are also more open to the

outdoors following their upgrades (18 percent). Many homeowners are adding features traditionally associated with living and dining rooms to their updated kitchens, including dining tables, chandeliers, TVs and desks/ workspaces. Customized features that support entertaining are also popular, including wine refrigerators and built-in stations for coffee/ tea. Additionally, homeowners are updating the design of the kitchen to integrate with the rest of the home, which 45 percent of renovating homeowners rate as a top design aspect for their updated kitchen. This includes installing custom-made cabinetry and hardwood flooring. “The modern ‘super kitchen’ supports family, friends and work and does it in style,” said Nino Sitchinava, principal economist at Houzz. “Our findings show that homeowners expect kitchen renovations to go far beyond improving flow, storage or aesthetics. The ‘super kitchen has

literally become a living room, family room and office, with finishes, layouts and decor that challenge us to define where the kitchen ends and the rest of the home begins.” The top trigger for kitchen projects in 2015 is that homeowners can no longer stand their old one. This trigger exceeded other motivations, surpassing wanting to do so all along and finally having the means, and customizing a recently purchased home. Nearly a third of renovating homeowners are spending €25-€50K on kitchen renovations (31 percent), and another third are spending more than €50K (30 percent). Also, spending on completed kitchens continues to exceed budgets on planned kitchens with more than half of homeowners budgeting €25K or less on kitchen renovations (52 percent).

u Updated Layouts Support Flow: Nearly half of homeowners updating their kitchens changed the layout of the room (48 percent). U-shaped kitchens are the most popular choice of new layout (35 percent), followed by L-shape (28 percent), shapes which lend themselves most easily to open-concept floorplans. u Neutral Colours Reign: Similar to last year’s findings, the majority of those renovating kitchens continue to gravitate toward neutral colours that will stand the test of time. Shades of beige, grey and white are top choices for updated walls (22, 22 and 17 percent, respectively), and white and medium-light wood

are still trending for cabinets (38 and 18, respectively). Updated counters either integrate multiple colours or are primarily white or black (32, 19 and 14 percent, respectively). u High-Tech Kitchen Tools: A third of homeowners who upgrade their appliances during their kitchen remodel report that one or more of their appliances have high-tech features such as colour touchscreen displays (20 percent), built-in apps with recipes, cooking tips and more (six percent); and wireless controls via smartphone or tablet (five percent). Additionally, of kitchen renovators who added a new range or cooktop, 11 percent opted for induction cooktops.

Additional findings include: u New Kitchen, New Style: Threequarters of homeowners changed the style of their kitchen during their project (76 percent). While traditional rooms and rooms without a particular style were most common prior to upgrades (32 and 36 percent respectively), few homeowners selected these styles for their updated kitchens. Instead, homeowners describe half of their updated kitchens as transitional (21 percent), contemporary (19 percent), or modern in style (12 percent). DÉCOR Magazine

The new Air Kitchen is a unique contemporary designer kitchen featuring the best of British craftsmanship. Modern eco-materials and time honoured construction techniques, brought together in one sleek modern retro kitchen.

The Air Kitchen range is an exclusive retro contemporary kitchen inspired by innovative designs of the last century. Vintage automobile construction, the hulls of working boats and the iconic Airstream caravan; design classics which inspired this curved kitchen design of aluminium panels, polished rivets and futuristic push-to-open solid surface doors. Cutting-edge eco-materials compliment warm oak for a contemporary retro designer kitchen.

Sleek, understated units fascias accentuate those pleasing curves which define the Air Kitchen range. Base cabinets appear to float whilst pod-like larder units and appliance cabinets stand on slender stainless steel legs, all adding to an exciting feeling of space and airiness in this modern kitchen with a vintage twist. Air was proudly designed and built in Great Britain for a bright new age of contemporary design; a future classic for contemporary living. DÉCOR Magazine


CRAFTMANSHIP The Air Kitchen uses both traditional and ultra-modern materials, bringing classic design elements up-to-date but keeping the same spirit of adventure which first inspired them. Air is a triumph of British craftsmanship and design. Air Kitchen ConstructionThe process of laminating curved oak for our cabinets gives a rigid, stable curve to support our solid surface doors. Rolled aluminium, riveted to oak frames is a time-honoured method used in the iconic Airstream caravan’s frame construction. Air’s aluminium panels are annealed to make them more pliable and then rolled by hand by our carpenters as industrial fabricators could not match the 1mm tolerance required for a perfect fit. Good old fashioned ingenuity and testing were required to develop elegant techniques to manufacture this innovative kitchen. It’s these traditional skills and minute tolerances that add finesse to the striking forms and clean lines of the Air Kitchen. Solid surface handless doors and draw fronts introduce a new generation of kitchen surfaces, made from recycled aluminium ore and acrylic resin. Surprisingly soft and tactile, these open by pushing a pleasing dimple set in the door for a completely handless kitchen. White Silestone, Carrara Marble, Honed Black Granite and Limed Oak worktops add practicality to this inspirational range of furniture designed to impress for generations.

It is a modular system which has adjustable/removable armrests and backrests - allowing you to play with the layout and transform part of the sofa into a single chair or sun lounger.

The frame is made from powder coated aluminium, which is available in three colours; white, lava or shingle. The comfortable cushions have outdoor, quick dry foam fillings and covers in a great choice of water resistant outdoor fabrics. The seams are welded as well as sewn, so if a drop of water does manage to get through it will drain away through the specially designed cushions.

SWING INTO ACTION Swing is first and foremost a system. The simple idea behind its conception is based on repetition of an element in teak to make up an architectural principle that creates a comfy seating solution. This is accompanied by research into a technical detail, with the wooden elements fixed to a structure in aluminium, lending lightness and transparency to the whole.

The fruit of an Italian company’s passion, inspired by the beauty of Nature and contemporary style trends, Ethimo furniture provides a complete collection for the open– air life, permeated with wellbeing, beauty and sophisticated simplicity. From designs inspired by the finest traditions of outdoor furnishings given a fresh twist through Ethimo’s design and materials research, to the company’s partnership with Patrick Norguet, a leading international designer, with his free spirit and concept of “continuum” between the home’s indoors and outdoors.

The Swing collection includes a swing seat with a dual structure, externally in metal wrapped in a sail through which light filters and internally in pickled teak slats, like a suspended nest that embraces mind and body; the XI sofa, a two-seater sofa, an armchair and two different low tables.

DÉCOR Magazine


Swing eliminates the barrier between indoors and out, treating garden furniture to the same attention to detail, study of materials, refined elegantly contemporary shapes that are usually reserved for that in the home.
