lookbook spring 2014


This season our Lookbook takes a tour around three very different homes; a high-rise city apartment, a glamorous, golden villa and a family house made for entertaining. Three distinct styles that beautifully showcase the versatility and breadth of the OKA range. Sitting alongside these features are a series of articles focusing in on the fundamentals of design; mini masterclasses drawn from our years of interiors’ experience. This spring we’re looking at mirrors, faux flowers, craftsmanship and the art of the seasonal makeover. For a simple guide to everything in the collection (including all the furniture and accessories featured in these pages), get hold of a copy of our brand new Directory.

With high-rise living comes a release from the terrestrial constraints of period architecture: a truly blank canvas on which to decorate. Balance timeless with modern (oak with polished steel, velvet with chrome and lacquered wood with leather) for a stylish but accessible look, and with a spectacular view as your backdrop, the sky is literally the limit.

behind the scenes Have you ever wondered what goes into the making of a piece of OKA furniture, or the design of an accessory?

Take our Isphahan range of china tableware and accessories. Five years ago our team came across a little studio, almost by accident. This studio was manufacturing beautiful pottery the old fashioned way, with intricate decoration painstakingly applied by hand.  We had been looking to create a Persian inspired range of china but the intricacy of the design required an uncommon level of skill.  This little studio turned out to be the answer and we’ve been working with them ever since.

Well, it’s a process that sees our buying team, led by OKA’s three founding directors Annabel Astor, Sue Jones and Lucinda Waterhouse, journey to the farthest corners of the globe in search of skilled craftsmen and women with whom to collaborate. Many of these artisan makers work in the traditional manner, often by hand, preserving skills that have in many cases been lost elsewhere. It is this combination of craftsmanship and design expertise that makes OKA unique.

Look behind any of our furniture and accessories and you will find similar stories. Each piece could tell a tale: of travel, of collaboration, of trial and error and a degree of luck in some cases, but above all, of the successful marriage of traditional craftsmanship and serious design.

weather dependent

Block-printing fabric the traditional way, using hand-carved wooden blocks, is a vanishing art. We work with a team in India that use organic vegetable dyes to hand-print our cotton fabrics. We have to consider the seasons when we order, as after printing all the fabrics are left to dry in the sun, so come the rainy season, production stops!

It was only after months of searching that our team came across a family business (run by a mother and her two sons) with the right expertise for our Chinoiserie furniture and accessories. A shared passion for 18th century Chinoiserie led to an incredibly fruitful collaboration that has resulted in some of OKA’s best-loved pieces.

Sue Jones, one of OKA’s Founding Directors, talks to us about preparing her home for spring

as I might to make big changes, they will be noticed, so I’ve learnt to make smaller changes and if necessary to seek ‘board approval’! Sue Jones, Founding Director of OKA

I

have a husband who hates change, although he’d never notice if I was wearing something new (which incidentally has its advantages) he will spot a new cushion or a change of furniture from several miles away. Try

34

So, no radical re-organisation or complete redesign, but there are lots of smaller, seasonal changes I like to make that are both practical and eminently transferable to your own home. One of the things that I look forward to in the change of season is the change in what we eat. I love seasonal food; I don’t want to eat strawberries in winter or grouse in February; so as spring starts,

to mark the new season, I’ll change my glasses, plates and table linen. My winter faux flower arrangements feature dark coloured hydrangeas, dark alstroemeria and winter berry colours, so, come spring I’ll change them to lighter coloured blooms perhaps featuring cherry blossom or magnolia branches. In bedrooms, I’ll swap faux fur throws on beds for linen or cotton bedcovers and at the same time I’ll switch my room fragrances from Spiced Orange and Winter Forest to something lighter and more summery.


“I like to use my garden as another room, so in spring I make sure that everything’s ready. The tables are brushed down, the cushions are ready to go, the sunbeds are in position and everything’s primed.”

When it comes to outdoors, I like to use my garden as another room, so in spring I make sure that everything’s ready. The tables are brushed down, the cushions are ready to go, the sunbeds are in position and everything’s primed. If there’s any indication that it’s going to be a nice day, then I’m ready. Easy, simple changes like this really can make all the difference.

For more ideas on how you can make the most of your home and a wealth of interior design tips, visit okadirect.com/blog

Take your cue from the longer, lighter days and choose covers in colours from the paler end of the spectrum.

Use seasonal faux flowers.
