A SPLASH OF FASHION BeoPlay H6 offers a truly natural and authentic sound performance with focus on a clear midrange with a balanced bass and treble performance

BeoPlay H6 offers a truly natural and authentic sound performance with focus on a clear midrange with a balanced bass and treble performance. H6 BLUE STONE - INSPIRED BY THE LONDON UNDERGROUND It’s London baby! And that’s not just an expression – it’s an attitude and a way of living. London is the breeding ground for raw, unspoiled creativity. It’s the birthplace of both punk and classic sartorialism – and a place where the emphasis has always been on looking original. And, if that means sporting classic hand-tailored suits together with avant-garde accessories – or dying your hair blue – then that’s just the way it is, because anything goes in London! H6 GRAPHITE BLUSH - INSPIRED BY THE PARISIAN RUNWAY They call it the city of love. But it’s also the home of elegance – and the highest level of fashion, haute couture. That’s obviously up for debate – but to the locals Paris is the epicentre of all things fashion. The French capital is all about the classic posing vogue, sophisticated beauty – and naturally lots of romance and red lips too. This city is just as much about the past as it is about the future. You can mix vintage cool with modern edginess – shuffle things around to create your own style. As long as it’s ”tres chic” it’ll work in Paris. H6 BRONZED HAZEL - INSPIRED BY NEW YORK NIGHTLIFE A city that never sleeps is obviously a city that is always awake. New York is a pulsating hub of all different kinds of cultures, loads of passion and spades of creativity – all fuelled by the infectious energy that surrounds the Big Apple. The fashion coming out of New York is straightforward, down to earth – and made to be used. Comfort and ease are key elements, as long the clothes are matched by an attitude – because you’ve gotta bring some attitude.If you don’t – it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing. As the saying goes on Manhattan: Go big – or go home! For further information visit

Alrisha is another name for the Alpha Piscium star in the constellation of Pisces. The Arabic name means “the rope”: indeed, it is the point of convergence of two ribbons of stars that tie the tails of the fish in the constellation. Now Alrisha is also a lamp, which was conceived and designed by the Danish architect Brian Rasmussen, a lighting expert working on his first project for Axo Light. The encounter between the Venice-based Scandinavian designer and the Venetian manufacturer of international renown has given rise to the explosive exuberance of Alrisha.

Alrisha consists of a central spherical element which guards the light source, from which many twisted ribbons - a generous 132 in total - branch out to accompany the emitted light. The impression it gives you is of a bright star that shines its light in every direction. The collection comprises a suspension and a wall lamp, which are both made of aluminium, painted in white. The wall lamps - especially when placed side-by-side - can create some fantastic lighting effects on the surfaces onto which they are applied: they consist of a twisted aluminium ribbon held in place in close proximity to the wall by two elements fitted at the extremities, which contain one 2x1,5 W LED each. They are available with a wall plaque, designed for fixing to a single power supply point, or without the plaque with two power supply points.

PLUMAGE Lush feathers

AURA, WHIFFS OF LIGHT Seduction of form, malleable image that plays on fluidity; aesthetic, visual and tactile characteristics that touch on the emotional perception of the object. DÉCOR Magazine


Waves of light, bands of color, crystal plays: silky hair, choppy seas, glittering objects inspired by the hydrodynamic shapes of marine animals. Aura is not only a tool but a language that expresses dreams, desires and sensations.

The Aura collection is light that involves you both on the cognitive and the passional level; the observer instinctively stretches out his hand to touch the crystals, to go beyond the visual perception. Sinuous and reflecting surfaces that create both suggestive as well as spontaneous special effects where the color blends with matter creating an intense Aura that defines and interprets the light itself: refined in shades of white, passionate when it is red, mysterious when dressed in black. A harmony of colors and atmospheres that cunningly conceals profound construction knowledge and attention to detail.

In the Aura collection, glass is produced and finished off completely by hand, using the traditional techniques of the Murano masters. Each twisted glass piece is unique, glass mixed in the molten stage through three subsequent gathers, stretched and twisted by a master glass craftsman and, still burning hot, left to cool very slowly. The collection, consisting of numbered items, comprises suspension, wall lamps, ceiling lamps and trims in white, red, black, orange, yellow tea and ribbed crystal. DÉCOR Magazine

MAKING HOMES BEAUTIFUL Ever since its creation in 1981 Arte has been known for its passion for beautiful wallcoverings. Arte wallcoverings vary in style from the most sumptuous classic interiors to the minimalist and avant-garde.


Arte wallcoverings create comfort and elegance. They reflect the good taste and refinement of the owner. This is why their products adorn the walls of both residential interiors and project interiors all over the world. The innovative and trendsetting wallcoverings are created in-house by a team of experienced designers. When creating a new product they place as much importance on design and colour as on the practical usibility. This is why some new collections and take more than a year to complete. Paper or non- woven wallcoverings naturally spring to mind when you think of wallcoverings. However with the unique Intrigue collection Arte has once more taken the concept to a completely different level. And even if you have perhaps seen a wall covered with a textile, well, this is just a little more refined.

Available from:

The Intrigue collection is the result of a new process that we call thermoforming. As the word might suggest, heat is used to press a design into the fabric. By heating the fabric it acquires a luxurious satin sheen that reflects the light. It is fascinating to see and irresistible to touch. You also obtain a beguiling interplay of smooth and relief, light and dark, sheen and matte areas. DÉCOR Magazine



THREE-DIMENSIONAL This new collection features three different designs. The first print, Rosace, is a more graphic design with regular triangles, three-dimensional of course. This produces ‘rise’ and ‘fall’ that showcases the subtle sheen effect. The second design, Caisson, was inspired by a wonderful, old, sculpted panel door, such as those you frequently encounter in the smallest streets of Paris. Design number three, Feuillage, is a tile pattern of leaf designs.


The colour palette is equally pronounced and irrefutably demands your undivided attention. The colours in this collection boast captivating names such as Avorio, Prussia, Fondant, Perla and Felce, which make your imagination run wild. So do you dare to decorate a wall in black, bright blue of poisonous green? As a personal statement? Or do you prefer to play it safe with a more restrained tone? SOUNDSUPPRESSING Intrigue offers another advantage. As a result of the combination of materials used, this wallcovering will influence in a positive way the acoustics in areas where the wallcovering has been installed. It means that voices are immediately muffled in large rooms. Because the Intrigue collection is produced from supple material, it is also a valuable product for adding a touch of style to less attractive walls. Intrigue is actually highly flexible and very intriguing. The Intrigue collection is available cut to size and in various widths depending on the chosen design.

Rosace is 1,26 m wide; Caisson and Feuillage are both 1,23 m wide.

HOW TASTES CHANGE When designing a property, with my clients we take all these into consideration and get inspiration from the surroundings as well. I cannot say that every client I’ve worked with from a specific country has had the same style. Each individual has his/her own acquired taste. Some have liked a more traditional style whilst others a more modern approach.

More and more we see the harmony of styles combined in interior design, probably due to the fact that nowadays we travel more, which I like to call the modernday inspiration and fusion in design.

In Northern European countries, wooden floors and stark yet functional furniture using set the mood to create a more minimalist design. This is great to create a serene interior.

Although a nationality or region and cultural background of course play a big part in a person’s taste, many times the property or location itself calls for a different take on an interior, especially with holiday homes. I believe a lot has to do with location, the light, the architecture of the building, and much more. Although known for their ostentatious and lavish designs, the trend often seen with Italian designers is to combine modern lines with 60’s design to create a more timeless look.

To achieve the very typical feel of a terrace in the South of Spain, the Moorish influence is widely known and creates the element of summer often seen on terra cotta terraces, with Moroccan lanterns and colourful cushions and poufs.

For the French touch, try creating an elegant palate and eclectic mix combining new and old, especially with artworks, or paraphernalia, to create energy and a more lived in look. DÉCOR Magazine


Depending on how you use it, the Chesterfield look can work very well in a more classic style, and it can also create contrast against a modern setting.

From Africa and the far east, raw wood stumps and sculptures or artwork bring the ethnic element and blend well in a contemporary interior, making it lively and unique.

ADD A CERTAIN ‘JE NE SAIS QUOI’ Grand Illusions Vintage Paint re-launches, inspired by a Nordic-French palette that introduces twenty-six new colours (plus matt black for mixing). Nick Ronald and David Roberts launched their company, Grand Illusions, in 1987 and soon became known as the ‘pioneers of French Style in the UK.’ The cornerstone of their business was the paint, beautiful chalky flat paint. It changed their lives and they are delighted to bring their passion for paint to the fore once again.

Grand Illusions was created by Nick Ronald and David Roberts in December 1987, with just one small store in St Margaret’s, Twickenham. The mission was to promote gifts, cards and accessories of good design and taste at an affordable price - still very much the core business ethic to this day. Shortly afterwards, they discovered and developed a paint range that was to transform their lives. In those days, painted furniture was something of a rarity, and a twenty two drawer chest painted in one of the new paints caught the eye of ‘Homes & Gardens’ magazine - the small feature resulted in over a thousand telephone calls and the seeds of the highly acclaimed furniture collection were sown.

The Vintage Paint range is Made in England and it doesn’t just emulate the historical colours of the past, with names such as Shutter, Calico, Charleston and Gustavian, but actually replicates the Buttermilk Paint of the 18th and 19th centuries. The water-based paint is made with Earth Pigments, Chalk, Clay and a very small amount of Acrylic Medium to bind it together. The result? A chalky, matt and breathable finish that’s perfect for walls, floors and furniture. These are paints that are eco-friendly, user-friendly and enable the decorator to paint like a professional. In fact it is as easy as A,B,C. To ensure the right coverage from the start the range includes Varnish, Waxes, Woodstain, Craqueleur and Paint Brushes. Available exclusively from Grand Illusions stockists around the UK, this is specialist paint that adds a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ to all interiors.

Felt. For over two and a half thousand years, the nomadic peoples of the remote and beautiful Tien Shan mountains in Central Asia have made sumptuous wool felt rugs (shyrdaks) to line their tents. Felt is the first company to source shyrdaks direct from nomadic makers across Kyrgyzstan and import them for sale in the UK. The collection includes a broad range of patterns and colour combinations from dazzling and bright, to elegant and subtle.

Available from:

56 DÉCOR Magazine

KEEP COSY WITH FELT Shyrdaks are as practical as they are decorative and their story has both romance and a touch of danger. Made outdoors by the tribal women, each rug takes a master cutter and her team of makers between 10 and 20 days to complete. The base of each rug is made from raw wool which has been flattened with boiling water, rolled up in a reed mat and then ‘felted’ by being dragged across mountain pastures behind a galloping horse. The surface felts are coloured, usually with natural dyes made from roots and nuts, and then used to create geometric patterns which are bound to the base with strong stitching. The applied shapes are vocabulary from the ancient language which still forms part of the everyday life of the rug makers. Each of Felt’s Shyrdaks tells a unique story and comes with an explanation of the symbols to decode their meaning. Felt’s customers can also commission bespoke rugs in their chosen colours, patterns and sizes, and even to convey a particular message… a suitably decorated rug would make a really special wedding, christening or housewarming present... Shyrdak colours range from the dazzlingly bright to subtly muted tones, offering a wide range of decorative possibilities for both contemporary and traditional interiors. The rugs are perfect for both floors and walls and sizes range from small (0.8m x 1m) to room sized (2m x 3.5m). Prices start from £280.

Felt’s neutral Shyrdak rugs are brought to life with a vibrant braid in a contrasting bright. Rugs in cool grey and cream are given added zing with a vivid turquoise thread, whilst subtle fawns are warmed up with red. Suitable for walls or floors, these hardwearing rugs are one off works of art and can be made to special commission. There is a wide range of patterns and sizes available, from runners to room size rugs, to suit any space.

Working with their makers in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan Felt have created a range of beautiful cushions. Soft, warm and equally at home in contemporary or traditional interiors. Made from the same superior-quality hand-made 100% wool felt as Felt’s rugs, the cushions and super-generous floor cushions are soft, beautiful and hard-wearing. The striking geometric patterns are cut through two pieces of different coloured felt to create a ‘positive and negative’. Each cushion is therefore part of a mirror image pair (but can be bought separately). The felt shapes, which symbolize the birds, animals, mountains and rivers that are part of the nomads’ lives, are stitched together with hand-spun twine and embellished with a hand-woven braid made from the same indigenous wool.

Felt’s cushions and floor cushions are available in the latest colours including hot brights and subtle neutrals or can be commissioned to order. Naturally, the cushions look great teamed with Felt rugs! Each cushion contains an ultra comfortable extra-stuffed duck feather cushion pad. Hand finished in the UK and backed with either linen or felt. Cushions: 50cm x 50cm Price: £120 each / £200 a pair. Floor cushions: 90cm x 90cm Price: £330 each / £580 pair You can contact Felt to request images of cushions currently in stock or to discuss a commission. DÉCOR Magazine

Icons have been created in black, reminiscent of the stencil work of street artists. This provides a striking contrast with the soft and bold colours found in the complex paint texture backgrounds. Finally, the addition of graffiti style text really pulls the whole artwork together.

These designs have been brought to life in Nepal by the skill of weavers who practice the ancient technique of hand-knotting. Only the best natural materials have been used; Himalayan wool, with highlights of Chinese silk. This combination adds an extra dimension to the texture and appearance of the piece. The overall result of this process is a fabulous collection of rugs which are full of contradictions. They are ancient yet modern, edgy yet sophisticated, gritty yet luxurious. If you want to add a flash of excitement to a room, these are definitely the rugs for you.

London based natural flooring specialists Ecora has seen a noticeable increase in orders for its ‘basics’ range. The basics range is popular with customers as it offers both quality and style at a sensible price point. Wood flooring is often specified by interior designers, property developers and architects as it offers a neutral and hard-wearing backdrop to both contemporary and classic living environments. Jeandre du Toit, Sales Director at Ecora explains the idea behind the basics range… “By nature wood flooring comes at a price and our clients expect the very best quality. We offer a ‘middle ground option’ where we supply good quality flooring at a sensible and competitive price. After much research we have sourced timber from responsible suppliers in Europe and developed a range of rustic hand finished boards in a variety of colourways.”

Shades of Grey Natural wood floors in neutral grey tones provide the perfect backdrop for classic and contemporary homes. One of the most important choices you need to make when planning a room is deciding the type of flooring you intend to use. Tying all elements of the room together successfully can be tricky and choosing a ‘neutral’ toned floor as a base will give you more options in terms of both decoration and interior style. Designers, Developers and Architects often opt for grey toned floors as they work beautifully in both contemporary and period properties and bring a sense of light and space to a room. Grey finishes are also very forgiving and offer a ‘timeless’ quality that will never look dated or old fashioned. In opting for a high quality natural wood floor in a grey finish you will also instantly add value to your home, making it more appealing to potential buyers. There are a number of options to consider such as which type of wood to choose, Oak being the most popular choice. Solid boards do require more of an investment but will last for generations, whilst engineered boards provide a more affordable option. Why not opt for a hand-finished timber which will have its own unique character and an aged look. There are a number of interesting finishes available including brushed, scorched, fumed and oiled and by combining several techniques you can achieve a ‘bespoke’ finish. When selecting the colour or tone consider a mid-grey which will work universally particularly in older properties, a lighter, whiter finish will give a more modern clean look, whilst a darker grey can provide a more opulent dramatic effect that work well in larger open plan spaces such as lofts and warehouse apartments. Whatever your preference or style of home, a natural wood floor will give your property a hardwearing, long-lasting and beautiful backdrop that combines the very best of function and form.

Hermès and the home go back a long way. From the 1920s, objects for the office and for leisure were designed. Links were forged with furniture designers, among them the decorator Jean-Michel Frank. A few decades later, tableware and textiles joined this universe. Furniture, furnishing fabrics and wallpapers followed.

HERMÈS EN LUMIÈRE A draftsman’s instrument, the pantograph, has given its name to a family of lights. Like the architect’s tool that serves to reduce or enlarge a drawing, this collection owes its originality to the articulated branches and arms that form the body of its three lamps.

Lampe de Travail

Today Hermès is exploring new territory, that of lighting. With table lamps, floor lamps and a lantern designed to echo and to bring to the fore the furniture collections. It is a natural complement to Hermès’ commitment to the universe of the home. An approach that is both essential and poetic, where objects, colours and luminosity cohabit. Coexist. Create a space for living and well-being. A harmonious eclecticism, given rhythm by refinement and functionality.

Agile lamps, which follow the hand the better to illuminate the gesture. Dressed in leather and metal, the luminous parts recall the riding crop and the equestrian universe. The finishing touches are carefully thought out, honed and refined. A base that is also a trinket tray, hidden wires, and cables sheathed in leather. Subtle work that is all about the detail.

Liseuse de Parquet

Lampadaire Arche

The name of this family of lights owes nothing to chance. Like the straps of the harness that connect the horse to its rider, those of the lamps in this collection link a base and a shade. A marriage of saddle-stitched leather and opaline fixed by three saddle tacks. The wires and cables, all fully leather-sheathed, are the invisible proof of the extremely fine finish. The finesse of savoir-faire.

DÉCOR Magazine


This nomadic lantern charged with energy is an invitation on a geo-poetic journey, an incitation to escape. It lights the way, demarcates the path with four light sources, independent but united in a single case.

The Lanterne d’Hermès consists of four individual light sources, assembled on a single base in a leather case. Each source, with its own rechargeable battery, can be used independently and wirelessly, either inside or outside. Integrated LED technology offers two types of light, diffuse and directional. Aluminium, leather and glass are the three essential materials: aluminium for the rigidity and lightness of the structure. Water-resistant calfskin to cover, protect and enhance. And glass for its optical qualities.

RE-EDITIONS BY HERMÈS He left his mark on the style of the years 1920 to 1940. Decorator, inventor, designer, Jean-Michel Frank approached the house of Hermès for the first time in 1924. He wanted to cover his pieces of furniture in leather… Hermès decided to cover these pieces, and to adapt its savoir-faire to decoration by signing these pieces with its famous saddle stitch. Since 2010, Hermès has re-edited a selection of Jean-Michel Frank’s emblematic pieces. A technical and artistic challenge. This year, limited editions of a bench, an armchair and a console in wrought iron and bridle leather join the collection.

Console in wrought iron and leather In bridle leather and wrought iron, this console is a work of craftsmanship, entirely hand-made. Re-edition of 100 numbered units.

Bench in wrought iron and leather This bench in bridle leather, entirely worked, polished, patinated, and constructed by hand, is re-edited in 50 numbered units. The structure and the legs are in wrought iron.

Armchair in wrought iron and leather A re-edition, in 100 numbered units, of this armchair in bridle leather, entirely worked, fashioned and patinated by hand. Like the bench, the structure and the legs are in wrought iron.

THE CURIOSITÉS D’HERMÈS They are called Curiosités. Like the cabinets of old, where objects accumulated in organised chaos. The unexpected with the unique. The connoisseur had his points of reference. The collector used it as a hideout. The Curiosités d’Hermès have resurrected this spirit. Unexpected, surprising, the Club Bar, the Coffre à chaussures and the Dressoir à thés tell a story, testify to a savoir-faire, reflect an art of living, the pleasure of inviting, sharing, exchanging. Dedicated to specific moments, these Curiosités are conceived, designed and fitted out to simplify the gesture. To embellish the everyday. To personalise an interior. While always responding to a need. This furniture thus becomes an ally.

Dressoir à thés This Dressoir à thés allows one to prepare, serve and savour Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong, Pu-erh or any other blend, with the greatest respect for tradition. Teapots, tea services, accessories, and containers for teas and biscuits each have their place and their space. Compartments, drawers and shelves make up the two sections of this piece for which greyed oak, Clémence bullcalf in rope, Semis de H fabric in écru and sage, and lacquer in celadon have been chosen.

Coffre à chaussures This chest can hold up to 18 pairs of shoes and a pair of boots. Small compartments and leather pockets have been designed for brushes, cloths, waxes and polishes. A leather-covered shelf provides a place to brush, wax and polish shoes. And to put your shoes on, simply fold out the integrated bench, place your foot on a metal bar and admire the result in the mirror at the base of the piece. Rosewood, Essentiel bullcalf in gold and Toile à bagage in raw grey cover this Coffre à chaussures. Night and day, this piece is illuminated via the use of wiring cleverly hidden in the hinges.

PHILIPPE STARCK Whenever we discover an object or a place designed by Philippe Starck, we enter a world of wall-to-wall imagination, surprises and fabulous fantasy. For more than four decades, this unique and multifarious creator, designer and architect has been a part of our daily lives by creating unconventional objects, whose purpose is to be “good” before being beautiful; iconic destinations, that take the people out of themselves and, most importantly, steer them towards something better.

“I have this mental sickness called creativity” DÉCOR Magazine


“My father was an aeronautical engineer. For me it was a duty to invent”


Philippe Starck was born on the 18th January 1949 in Paris. His father, an inventor and aeronautic engineer, gave the young Philippe Starck the desire to create and the capacity to dream. Much of his childhood was spent hanging around the drawing tables of his father and he retains his father’s primary lesson: everything should be organised elegantly and rigorously, in human relationships as much as in the concluding vision that presides over every creative gesture. Starck first became interested in living spaces while studying at Ecole Nissim de Camondo in Paris. In 1969 he designed an inflatable house based on an “idea of materiality” this brought him to the attention of Pierre Cardin who offered him the job of artistic director at his publishing house. Starck then founded his first industrial design company STARCK PRODUCTS, which he later renamed Ubik, here he designed furniture for leading Italian and

international firms, and in 1982, Starck was commissioned to work for President François Mitterrand to re-decorate the private residence at the Elysée Palace. Philippe Starck then turned his creative genius to hotel. Starck, designs his hotels and restaurants in the same way a director makes a film. He develops scenarios that will lift people out of the everyday and into an imaginative and creative mental world. His hotels have become timeless icons in 1988 Starck was commissioned by famed nightclub impresario Ian Schrager, former co-owner of Studio 54, to refit the Royalton Hotel on New York’s West 44th Street. It was a design moment that has since changed the hotel industry by creating the boutique hotel concept. The Starck-Schrager hotel partnerships continued in New York at the Paramount hotel, and then spread to Miami with the opening of the Delano Hotel in South Beach in 1995, to Los Angeles with the Mondrian Hotel in December 1996, to London with both the St. Martins Lane hotel in 1999 and the Sanderson hotel in 2000 to San Francisco and the Clift hotel, and finally back to New York with the Hudson hotel.

There are few areas of design he hasn’t explored: from furniture to mail-order homes, motorbikes, to mega yachts which have been sold at prices of over $300 million, to everyday consumer products including toothbrushes and toothpaste sanitizers, fruit juicers, watches, wireless speakers for iPod and iPhone even artistic direction for space-travel projects, he was commissioned to design the Virgin Galactic “spaceport” in New Mexico. His most recognised design is the Ghost Chair used within the Ugly Betty Series.

urgency of the economy and protection of our world but also creativity and elegance”. Starck also plans to follow this with solar-powered boats and hydrogen cars. For the future Philippe Starck implores, “Let’s offer our children another history, another romanticism” Philippe Starck is a tireless and rebellious citizen of the world who considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer world. He stays tuned in to our dreams, desires and needs - sometimes before we get there ourselves - by making his work a political and civic act which he accomplishes with love, poetry and humour.

Philippe Starck believed in the concept of eco living long before ecology became fashionable, out of respect for the planet’s survival. Early on in his career, he created the Good Goods catalogue of nonproducts for non-consumers in tomorrow’s moral market, and set up his own organic food company. More recently he has developed the revolutionary concept of “democratic ecology” by creating affordable wind turbines for the home, “Ecology is not just an DÉCOR Magazine


The thousands of projects - complete or forthcoming - his global fame and tireless protean inventiveness should never distract from Philippe Starck’s fundamental vision: Creation, whatever form it takes, must improve the lives of as many people as possible. Starck vehemently believes this poetic and political duty, rebellious and benevolent, pragmatic and subversive, should be shared by everyone and he sums it up with the humour that has set him apart from the very beginning: “No one has to be a genius, but everyone has to participate.” Inventor, creator, architect, designer, artistic director, Philippe Starck is certainly all of the above, but more than anything else he is an honest man directly descended from the Renaissance artists.

There is only one Philippe Starck - Renowned for his innovative approach to design, Philippe Starck’s projects ranging from his futuristic Juicy Salif lemon squeezer through a whole chronology of chairs to bathroom fittings, huge plastic sofas, watches and weather stations – Here we reveal his most iconic designs:

Holly All a new Sculptural t SeatPlanter for Serralunga A huge sculpture with integral Seat & Planter. Suitable for use outside as well as indoors in reception areas, atriums, public areas, shops etc. Holly All is a real statement piece that is visually stunning & useful too - it attracts attention & people love to engage with the piece by sitting on it. Lemon Squeezer 1989

t The Future Gold plated lamp Starck is not the first and will not be the last, to express himself through strong controversial symbols. Weapons are a recurring icon and are used to see how far the boundaries of design can be pushed, in pursuit of a healthy disgust.

t Louis Ghost Chair Armchair If Louis XV were alive - he would want a chair like this... The Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck for Kartell. The relationship between Kartell and Philippe Starck sometimes becomes a real desire for transgression and challenge, of aesthetic and cultural provocation.

In only 10 years the Alessi Juicy Salif lemon squeezer has earned its place in the olympus of design. It now stands among the devine. Once the focus of heated debate and criticism for its supposedly impractical design, it now ranks with the historical greats at the MOMA in New York. Who cares if it works, who else could think of transforming an everyday object into a sculpture to be displayed as a work of art in the kitchen - the one and only Philippe Starck of course!

The Louis Ghost is the most daring example in the world of polycarbonate injection in a single mould.

MODERN TIMES Located beneath the dramatic backdrop of the Cornish moors and a few miles from the coast is the studio and workshop of British clock designer Charlie Turner. When we think of long-case or grandfather clocks most of us conjure up images of large and imposing pieces of furniture made from dark woods, the sort of things found in many grand country houses or old school libraries. However, designer, sculpture, artist and horologist Charlie Turner is breaking the mould when it comes to clock design.

Charlie Turner is one of the UK’s most innovative and inspiring furniture designers, creating unique pieces of beautiful yet functional art. Charlie’s handmade contemporary clocks encompass the very best of classic craftsmanship and his distinctive contemporary style.

City tower blocks, urban skylines, tall dramatic silhouettes, hints of seeing things through the wooden slats, never getting the complete picture. The star burst of light on the ceiling and on surrounding walls, brings the clock alive the gentle swinging of the pendulum is very soporific. This is a bit of furniture that happens to tell the time.

Each of his unique and eye-catching clocks are designed and made by hand in Cornwall. Taking a very fresh and inspiring approach to furniture design has led Charlie Turner to the launch of his own collection of contemporary grandfather clocks. Made from natural timbers and designed to reflect minimal and contemporary lifestyles his designs are thoroughly modern, a million miles away from the look of traditional clocks. Charlie’s sculptural clocks may well be simplistic in style but the quality of the technology integrated within the designs is every bit as complex and precise as classic timepieces. Charlie Turner explains “I get inspiration from all around me, the sea, the coast, the Cornish landscape. I am always on the lookout for materials, colours and shapes that would never be associated with clocks, from the rocks, driftwood and the amazing range of colours in the sea”.

RED CLASSIC When seeking inspiration the reality is always closer to home than we realise. The dramatic change to a traditional clock but painting it a different colour was a huge surprise. We used a mirror as a dial to get further away from the traditional image. The looks and comments we got from the “Car Body Shop” when we asked them to spray the clock still makes me smile.

The process of creating a new contemporary clock design is a long and meticulous process and Charlie has spent several years perfecting his collection prior to its launch. “I have many ideas for clocks in my head but getting to the manufacturing stage takes some serious work. First I draw the design, re-work and refine its structure. Then I make them up in miniature, alter the proportions, do some road testing with a prototype to gauge the public’s reaction etc. This September Charlie Turner will be unveiling his collection of contemporary clocks with the launch of his own brand ‘Charlie Turner Design’.

Charlie Turner has always held a passion for working with wood and from early childhood he enjoyed designing and making furniture. Initially, however, Charlie worked in the film business making TV Commercials and spent several years in the States and London. Having made the decision to leave the city he then embarked on renovating and refurbishing period properties. Having successfully completed several complex house renovations Charlie received commissions for cabinetmaking work and his creative skills became increasingly in demand. Projects undertaken included kitchen and furniture designs and bespoke interiors. Whilst the cabinetmaking business was thriving Charlie made the difficult decision to change the direction of his work following a serious back injury and subsequent surgery. Having found a small clockmaking business for sale in Cornwall, Charlie and his family moved to the West Country and took over “Richard Broad Clocks” now Broad and Turner, in 2000. The clock’s produced were mostly traditional in design and Charlie wanted to inject some fresh inspiration into the business.

Seeing the movement of the pendulum from the sides and front and seeing the three weights drop over the week, emphasise the simple mechanical nature of the piece.

Dedicating his time to studying the technology of horology and working on innovative contemporary clock designs the Charlie Turner collection was officially launched in the summer of 2011. Charlie’s contemporary clock designs reflect the environment in which he lives, the changing moods of the sea, the abundance of natural light and the natural beauty of the wood. DÉCOR Magazine

In spirit with the tradition for scandinavian simplicity Norm strives to cut to the bone in their designs. To find the simplest shape for a given task without forgetting the beauty of the shape and the details, in order to reach a point where there is nothing to add and nothing to take away that can make the product better. Like true scandinavians they pride themselves in their culture and history, and hope and aspire to create new norms for nordic design.

Norm.Architects are to show you the very first production of MENU bed linen, the beautiful GoodNorm designed by NORM Architects. GoodNorm is a lovely 2-sided bed linen in washed cotton sateen. One side of the bed linen is plain-coloured while the other has fine small graphic patterns and details.

GoodNorm comes in six different douched Scandinavian colours: Kit, Concrete, Anthracite, Nude, Moss and Thunder. The special wash provides the douched nuances and makes the bed covers even softer. All GoodNorm products are wrapped with out any use of plastic to protect the environment, and tested for all harmful substances according to the Oeko-Tex® standard to protect you.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Cushion Jayshree piped In Ketti - Footstool Orissa Velvet

Luxury lifestyle, from the buzz of city living, to pastoral idyll, Zoffany embraces the best of both worlds

This autumn sees Zoffany playing to two of its strengths. The recent success of collections as diverse as Arden and Quartz show that the Zoffany customer enjoys the best of both worlds: the vibrancy of the city and the bliss of country living. Launching this season are two groups of collections with very different identities: the Prism and Quartz set, launched recently have an urban contemporary feel. This second group of collections, Jaipur, plays on and updates a strong tradition of using Indian and Persian designs in the decoration of English Country House interiors. Inspired by Indian Mughal paintings, the Jaipur collection takes its name from one of the regions where this school of art is still practised. A sophisticated mix of pattern and texture gives scope for the interior designer to create highly individual and elegantly welcoming living spaces.

The collection introduces new techniques to create fabulous textural effects and contemporary interpretations of documents. Mural artist, Melissa White, was invited to paint the scenic ‘Peacock Garden’ as a striking backdrop to the collection.

All prints and wallpapers are manufactured in the UK.

HERITAGE & “ Tranquilitie ELEGANCE “

Textiles have been part of the Walker family heritage for almost 200 years when the original James Walker (1797-1865) founded the company in a weaver’s cottage with just two handlooms. With origins in Yorkshire and Oxfordshire, “Tranquilitie” was founded in the 1930s to supply boutique hotels and retail stores with quality blankets and continues to stand for high quality British design led textiles with genuine heritage and excellence.

“Tranquilitie” luxury wool blankets bring style and elegance into any home. Suitable for both interior and outdoor use, they dress any city or country home handsomely. Designed and made in England they are generous in size, sumptuous in weight and exceptionally hard wearing. Each blanket comes packaged in a practical yet striking panama bag. Perfect for draping over the beds, making a nest as the evening cools or throwing on the ground for a picnic, the “Tranquilitie” colour palettes, inspired by the pure elegance of nature will complement and provide comfort in any setting. Each blanket will provide years of memories which can be passed down through generations.

Van Dusen


Virginia Walker grew up with “Tranquilitie” blankets as a child; the same blankets remain with her today, a symbol of their quality and timeless appeal. It was this that inspired Virginia to re-invigorate the “Tranquilitie” brand.

A former Central Saint Martins student with a background in luxuiry markets, a keen eye for colour and sensitivity for understated elegance, Virginia has joined the business having spent time in designing in London, Milan and New York. With experience in both interiors and fashion, Virginia has the desire to breathe fresh life and new designs into her family’s business whilst developing new markets.



Attention to detail is implicit; Virginia works tirelessly with her production team to ensure every element of the blanket is perfect. “Tranquilitie” (the blankets) take inspiration from the surrounding natural beauty and, to reflect the range’s international appeal, the blankets are named after the world’s oldest and most beautiful botanical gardens; Versailles, Majorelle, Empress, Chelsea, Exbury, Van Dusen, Kew and Eden

The collections straddle contrasting extremes in both form and content, sparking an engaged dialogue with any interior - harsh, raw elements, for example, are combined with a refined sense of elegance…


Soft features are lent a rough, hardened edge… Warm, natural materials are contrasted with sleek, clean lines… This passion for engaging extremes lends our collections an obstinate personality while reinforcing a broader international and crossborder vision. a vision that encapsulates the diversity of a globalized and everchanging world.

Within this theme, DômeDeco return to their roots by taking a break of the fast moving society surrounding us. Their desire towards crafted objects grows because of the need for physical connections in this increasingly virtual world. The untouched and raw nature is the inspiration for this theme of complete purity. In tune with the sense for imperfection and authenticity, DômeDeco carefully chose a combination of different colors, textures and forms of the natural world which result in a sense of spirituality and robustness. Deep earth tones together with pops of color and floral textures tell a lush but at the same time a serene story.

CREATING SPACES IN WONDERFUL PLACES Blackshaw Interior Design is a luxury interior designer and building contractor based in Marbella on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. The company was launched in 2008 by Sally Blackshaw, a UK born, highly qualified and experienced interior/retail designer, and has since successfully completed both residential and retail projects for many prestigious clients in Spain and the UK.

Sally has a wealth of experience in creating and delivering expressive and stylish spaces. Having graduated in 1999 from the London Institute, she excelled in her field working for numerous major design companies both in the UK and Spain. Since Sally took the bold step in setting up her own company, Blackshaw Interior Design has gone from strength to strength. She puts this down to a simple ethos – understanding the clients’ needs and then executing their project with perfection and attention to detail.

“All clients are different, that’s why we take time to really understand our client’s briefs and objectives. We offer our expertise and vision, we excite and inspire, then we work together to deliver the project to the highest standards on time and to budget.” Sally’s technical background also means that she has the knowledge, expertise and contacts to undertake renovation and major construction projects in both the residential and commercial sectors.

“As one of Marbella’s top design firms, Sally’s design style is inviting, yet elegant and luxurious”

Sally is proud to announce the completion of their latest interior and exterior renovation project. This kind of work is exactly what they are used to, taking the property apart and putting it back together again. This particular project took approximately 4 months from start to finish. The villa was in need of complete modernization for an English family’s second home in the heart of the Golf Valley Nueva Andalucía. The client was after a home from home feel - updated, contemporary and welcoming. The swimming pool was redesigned and enlarged and the use of white tiles and coloured water make a striking view when you approach down the stairs, through the double doors and into the lounge. First impressions are all important and the curb appeal was dramatically improved by removing the curved wall and overgrown shrubs replacing them with straight, clean lines giving the impression that the house is taken care of, strong and secure, with huge wooden and chrome sliding gates replacing the old iron ones. Up and down contemporary lights finish off the streamlined look. DÉCOR Magazine


The whole interior ground floor living space was created into one open plan area, but cleverly Sally has given each section its own identity. The log burning 3 sided fire can be enjoyed from all angles and ties the space together. There really isn’t one area of the house that hasn’t been replaced or updated. Brand new electrics, plumbing, under floor heating and air-conditioning throughout have been installed utilising all the latest technology. Porcelain wood effect flooring was chosen, which is homely and easy to maintain. Secure PVC windows were installed, made from sustainable materials with the best insulation systems. Ceiling design always plays a really important role in all their projects. It enables the use of hidden A/C ducting great lighting effects can be created, with drop ceilings for LED spotlights, and recessed LED lighting effects all on dimmers In the bathrooms and kitchen ambient lighting effects were created with LED behind mirrors and under units, counters - a really cost effective way of making a difference.

Lara Bohinc’s collaboration with stone experts Lapicida was initiated by Wallpaper* magazine for their Handmade exhibition for Salone del Mobile, Milan 2014. The result is the Solaris Table which bears all the hallmarks of luxury and precision which Lara brings to her jewellery, and Lapicida brings to its work in stone. Solaris, a concept inspired by the planets and their orbital movements, is a theme running through much of Lara Bohinc’s work. Four stacked rings of marble move smoothly on a rotation spindle like a range of orbits. Highly polished circular brass dishes are inset into the marble plates and appear like planets rotating around a sun. The table is ever changing, as the plates can be easily moved around its axis. From a totally closed circle it can be spread open to almost double its size. Blurring the distinction between jewellery and furniture, Lara’s Solaris table is designed and made like an exquisite piece of jewellery, marrying stones and metals in a piece demanding both innovative technologies and traditional crafts.

Lara Bohinc was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where she studied industrial design at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts, before coming to London to take an MA in Jewellery and Metalwork at the RCA. Winning a New Generation Design Award in 1997, she launched her own company in the same year. She was awarded an MBE in 2013. Lara worked closely with Lapicida to find the four different gold-veined stones to make a unified progression from light to dark, from the top tier to the base. The four marbles used are, from the top down; Calacatta Oro, Fior di Bosco, Nero Oro and Nero Marquina. The brass elements have a brushed finish. The Solaris Table as shown measures 100cm diameter closed and opens out to 175cm with all four tiers spread out. Available in an edition of 10. Prices start f rom £24,000

Celebrate the nostalgia of an age of elegance and optimism with the new Age of Elegance collection

Old style glamour is gloriously mixed with a spirit of frivolity and freedom reminiscent of the Roaring 1920’s. The excitement of the Jazz Age is captured; a time of extravagant style parties and anticipation for a future full of promise. Eclectic design influences include the rustic curves of French country, the geometric shapes of Art Deco, and the refined romance of English gentry. DÉCOR Magazine


Vintage pieces are reworked with new, thoughtful details to harness unapologetic opulence with thoroughly modern values. For idealists with a deep love of art and literature, who share an adoration of glamour with a playful spirit. A range of sofas are available in a brand new Scuffed Linen finish, made from twice washed and treated hemp to reveal a soft and gentle texture. The Elegant Maple and Elegant sofas are rooted in classic design with quality, durability and modern comfort. The glamorous Rex lighting adds drama and style. The Crystaline Arris collection, shown here on the desk, is named after the arris – an architectural term for a sharp edge formed by the intersection of two surfaces.

constructed design forms exquisite, almost kaleidoscope-like patterns when looking through the light. Originating during the French Regency period of Louis XV, the classic Bombee has been given a rugged new life in the Timothy Oulton Bombee chest, gilded either in Scarecrow leather with a honed marble top or aluminium Spitfire for a daring contemporary look. The big, bold and beautiful lines of the Bombee are offset by the delicate cabriole legs. German engineered drawer gliders give world class functioning.


The Jet Collection is inspired by an original people’s hero and debonair dare-devil; the great Sir Donald Campbell.

Continuing his father Malcolm’s legacy, Donald became the only man in history to hold both land and water speed records in the same year. With their legendary Bluebird cars and boats, the Campbells combined those thoroughly British values of adventure and guts with a consuming passion and commitment. A homage to Donald’s jet-propelled Bluebird, this collection breaks boundaries with a unique mix of products, demonstrating strong, audacious designs. Emphatically influenced by the world of speed racing, the underlying principles behind Jet are concentrated precision and meticulous handcraftsmanship, delivered with a high dose of deliberateness.

SIGNATURE PIECES The Bendum sofa’s bold rounded lines invite you to get playful and cosy, shown above in Full Rebel leather. The Atom lighting collection, inspired by the structure of an atom around its nucleus, gives a sense of power and energy. The Calcula themed room features Calcula seating, influenced by the famous Bauhaus Design movement. A modern masculine style is paired with curved, polished steel lines for a slick minimalist design. Revisit groovier times with the Elevon range of cabinetry. Featuring burled walnut panelling trimmed with shiny steel banding and precision screw details.

I create – I do not produce. I create because I love to. It’s so much fun and a pleasure to go to work. My pieces are handmade, in the truest sense of the word. I make one piece at a time and give it my full attention, starting with a tree and ending up with functional art. I love the idea of taking a discarded tree and giving in new life. I think the natural world is beautiful, and I love what I do.

INSPIRATION My inspiration comes from the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the trees that grow here. No two trees are the same just as no two pieces are that I make from them. DESIGN I love design! Ideas often develop in my sketchbook, but where they really take shape is in the form of models and mock-ups. CREATE Working with rough wood slabs, requires a lot of different tools to bring the material to finished form. My work is created with a nice mix of traditional hand tools and modern machines. DETAIL It’s important to me that the “fingerprints” of the craftsman are on each piece I make. I try to marry the natural beauty of the wood with the skilled craftsmanship of the maker. When the two come together, a piece can really sing! FINISH Each piece I create is finished with meticulous detail. This culminates in a finished piece with an irresistibly silky smooth finish.

LIVE EDGE COLLECTION The collection is inspired by the remarkable beauty of “live” edge wood slabs. Just like the trees they’re crafted from, no two designs are ever the same.

THE ETERNITY OF TREES JOHNHOUSHMAND was born an artist in 1954. Raised by a Dutch-American mother and an Iranian father, John has always danced between Eastern philosophy and Western principles. It was his love for nature that led him to begin crafting homes, log chalets and bridges in the Northwest. John’s inventive essence and exceptional life experiences have harmonized to produce his latest masterful creation. His current endeavor involves designing and crafting an exclusive line of functional art, ironically disguised as furniture. His unique relationship with the natural world has manifested into an 900-acre farm in upstate New York, which is where he creates his furniture today.

This collection of urban organic furniture is a celebration of the natural and vital,fusing together the basic elements of nature with timeless materials and esoteric design sensibility. The success of this collection revolves around the balance of precise and high-risk intervention with the art of minimal intrusion.Engaging the basic elements of wood, glass, and steel, each piece is individually handcrafted to heighten and reveal their underlying splendors.

We allow trees to do the talking. We simply listen.

Challenging the division between fine and functional arts, JOHNHOUSHMAND strives to provide an elevated view of nature:s vibrant intensity through the ironic earthly beauty of each unique piece. JOHNHOUSHMAND is a collection of furniture that embraces the singularity of nature. We allow grains to spill. We love crumbling bark. We welcome wormholes.

THE PHILOSOPHY IS SUCCINCT BUT PROFOUND: To show what wood really looks like. In our world, mankind strips all life from its underlying individuality in exchange for the uniform of mass production. Trees are truly becoming a lost species. Trees are the guardians of everything sacrosanct. They hold secrets of the past and relinquish everything necessary to sustain the future. They bare their souls providing us with the air we breathe, the shelter in which we live, and the food that nourishes our very beings. DÉCOR Magazine

These are the essential elements of Geoffrey Bradfield’s signature style, sought after by Fortune 500 clients and others for whom the firm long ago coined the phrase “silent celebrities,” which include some of the most prominent aristocratic and royal families in the world. Among Bradfield’s many highly celebrated projects are: a major overhaul of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s Westbury, Long Island estate, restoration of the late King Hussein’s mansion in Maryland, the design of Hollywood director Oliver Stone’s riverside New York apartment, and a reconceptualization of the 200-room Equinox Resort in Vermont, a redesign so far-reaching and transformative that Starwood Hotels, Equinox’s parent company, elevated the property to its Luxury Collection.

ARMANI DESIGNED KITCHEN When it comes to sleek, contemporary Italian itchens, the choice is really endless. Designers today offer compositions that are both modular and versatile, and the creation of the modern kitchen is now easier than ever before. However, several ingenious and exceptional kitchen designs have always managed to swipe us off our feet with aesthetics and functionality.

One of the stars of this year’s London Design Festival is the kitchen Slide & Checkers, presented by Armani / Dada. The design of this exclusive kitchen will surprise you with its minimalist form, solutions that save space and sophistication. The concept is the result of the genius of the company Giorgio Armani, which is based in the area of informal elegant dining. The kitchen is transformed into a modern dining room, thanks to an exclusive patented sliding system that transforms the aura of the kitchen. Central island contains a marble piece that reveals the work area made of stainless steel. This allows you to use a stainless steel surface for food preparation with ease! The kitchen also has a horizontal lining of the Sassafras tree that slides horizontally revealing kitchen appliances. Creating a seamless visual space, this refined horizontal sliding mechanism gives the kitchen a modern, sophisticated and urban style.

CHECKMATE British gunsmith Holland & Holland is expanding its lifestyle offerings beyond hunting apparel and accessories to appeal to a different gaming interest.

CONTEMPORARY BENCH DESIGN Renowned furniture designer Matthias Pliessnig has designed two modern benches for his esteemed customers...

Holland & Holland worked with Scottish whiskey maker The Dalmore to create a bespoke chess set to play off of consumers’ competitive side. On Oct. 17, the Holland & Holland and Dalmore chess set began being sold at London retailer Harrods. The chess set was inspired by The Dalmore’s Constellation collection. The Constellation collection is made up of vintages created at The Dalmore’s Highland distillery between 1964 and 1992. Each of the 21 individual releases are housed in handblown crystal decanters presented inside a bespoke lacquered presentation cabinet. The decanter is hand engraved with The Dalmore’s emblem, a solid silver stag. Created by Holland & Holland, the limited-edition chess set was designed to display a The Dalmore’s Constellation bottle of whiskey. In addition to the game board and pieces, the set comes with two lead crystal tumblers engraved with The Dalmore stag. For more information visit:

As he himself says, he collaborated on the bench design with architects from Boston. Benches that they jointly designed should be placed in Harvard University, that is, in the interior of the newest building. Benches are named Eurus and SInuo. Nabil Gholam architects were seeking three benches for their Platinum Tower in Beirut. The benches were made in Providence and sent to Lebanon in order of installation and placed in an environment that perfectly captures their beauty - the polished floor made from Nero Marguin marble.

ARTS & CRAFTS IN THE 21st CENTURY Christian Paul are designers of bespoke furniture and kitchens. Based in the West Country they take on projects throughout the UK including Kitchens, Studies, Bedrooms, Dressing Rooms and Libraries. All their furniture is made in Cornwall using traditional wood working skills coupled with up to date fixtures and fittings.

Bespoke kitchen and furniture designers ChristianPaul showcase their range of Arts & Crafts inspired kitchen designs. With various cabinet designs to choose from, all made in Quarter Sawn Oak and with details in copper, bronze and stainless steel, the Arts & Crafts inspired range of kitchens from ChristianPaul is being launched as ‘semi-bespoke’ with a free standing feel. Clients will be able to choose from a range of cabinets, islands, lighting and accessories which are made to fit their homes perfectly. Whilst drawing inspiration from the Arts and Crafts movement it is essential to recognise that a modern kitchen needs to offer functionality and ease of use. Skilled designers will be able to interpret your ideas into a well designed space, and the cabinetry whilst in-keeping with the Arts and Crafts style can be engineered to include all the requirements of the modern kitchen such as dishwashers, steam ovens and espresso machines.

An Arts and Crafts kitchen designed for 21st century living needs to work well on many levels in terms of both functionally and beauty.

LIGHT & DURABLE The Finn Collection, developed for Design Within Reach, is built on a passion for details, tactility in design and creating for the need.

Danish designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn named their company Norm to express their dedication to “working with Danish norms and standards refined over hundreds of years,” says Bjerre-Poulsen, “rather than rejecting them in the endless search for new.” The sincerity of their approach - bypassing flashy design for good design shows in the quality of their work. These are products that endure both physically and aesthetically. Finn outdoor furniture collection, designed by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn of Norm Architects, is inspired by their Danish heritage. They have created a cutting edge collection that pays respect to Modernism. Comprising nine pieces - a chaise, lounge chair, ottoman, two- and three-seater sofas, coffee table, side table, dining chair and a dining table - the Finn Collection combines lightness and durability. High quality textaline webbing is wrapped around cantilevered, stainless steel rods that appear to float above their teak constructions.

“We wanted to create a collection that is as elegant as the classic Danish mid-century furniture but with a combination of materials that makes it robust and durable and suited for outdoor use,” explains Bjerre-Poulsen. Rønn adds, “Norm products never crave to be anything but what they are; that is the combination of utility, purity and quiet beauty.”

If asked to list the benefits of building a shading structure, like a pergola or gazebo, in your garden, most people would probably come up with the same answer. A cool place to sit under on a sunny day and also an attractive focal point in the garden. Whilst this is definitely a fact, many don’t realise that the opposite is also true. A warm and cosy ambience in which to spend a chilly winter’s day or night. How you might ask? By utilising the terrific insulation properties of the natural materials we use in our construction process, temperatures within a thatched roof structure tend to be much cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Due to the incredibly low heat transfer value of Cape Reed structures, heat is reflected from the structure in summer trapped beneath the roof during winter, causing a difference in temperature of up to 10°C.

C R E A T IN G A W A R M & C O SY A M B IA N C E F O R E N T E R T A IN M E N T IN W IN T E R With winter being just around the corner, increasing the heat underneath your thatch roof structure can be as simple as adding a fireplace to the construction. This results in an ecofriendly structure that can be enjoyed year round, adding the distinct ambience of nature to any home and garden.

So what about health and safety risks? Due to the active fire risk to constructions made from natural materials, Cape Reed has developed a fire retardant thatching method for improved safety. During construction, a fire retardant blanket (capable of resisting temperatures of up to 500°C) is incorporated within the thatch. Further fire protection may be added by applying a specially developed eco-friendly chemical spray (manufactured by Dutch company, Magma), Cape Reed FireShield. This product has been independently tested and subsequently earned the European Union’s approval for this fire retardant thatching method. In essence, by sensibly combining nature and technology, we are able to create an unique and versatile, yet sustainable structure in which you may relax and entertain whenever you choose, whether it is summer, winter, spring or autumn.

Sutherland was born through the collaboration of David Sutherland and John Hutton with a vision to create outdoor environments as beautiful and well made as the interiors of the world’s best-designed homes. Those incredibly high standards still drive everything we create today. A passion for beauty and an obsession with details imbues our style and craftsmanship. Each collection is created with purpose and every piece is sculpted with precision. Sutherland collections are built from premium materials from sustainable sources to ensure natural beauty and durability. Each piece made from these quality materials is crafted with welcoming proportions and exquisite details. Custom finishes, cushioning and upholstery options provide for individual personal designs. Our team of experienced, highly-skilled master craftsmen and our design engineering group can also produce bespoke pieces to meet our clients’ unique specifications and surpass their expectations.

NATURALLY LUXURIOUS Sutherland crafts fine outdoor furniture from premium teak, a unique wood known for durability, beauty and sustainability. Sutherland strives to use teak from regulated, sustainable plantations in order to protect trees growing in the wild. On these plantations, new trees are planted for every tree that is harvested to make a myriad of products. As a renewable resource, teak is not an endangered species, so there is never a shortage of this sturdy, beautiful wood. The natural characteristics of teak give it several advantages in outdoor furniture. Teak is an extremely dense, grained hardwood, which helps it resist rot, warping, shrinking and swelling. It is resistant to moisture thanks to a high content of oil and silicates that also protect the wood from pests. Teak changes over time with sun and water and develops a silver patina, giving it a richness and stately appearance. This slow, natural weathering results in outdoor furniture that adds character to any outdoor room and blends effortlessly into the natural environment.

“Everything the soul needs to exist starts with design. It brings structure, it brings discipline and it brings comfort” - David Sutherland
