It’s been cold, wet and a tiny bit snowy in Paris this week so we’re craving some warmth and colour to brighten us up and remind us that spring is on its way. Here’s our spring dreaming chic finds this week!
We prefer our colour to be a little muted so it harmonises with the other pieces in an interior while still making a statement. The fun lumberjack forms of the Bent Wood Table by Sebastian Wrong and Richard Woods for one of the most exciting collaborative design outfits out there, The Wrong Shop, are a chic injection of colour without being too serious.
To be fair, we’re in love with almost everything The Wrong Shop comes up with and these tables are no exception. Check out the matching Logo and Studio chairs for extra woody colour.
These bespoke bird sculptures by Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann from design studio Zim & Zou created these unbelievable sculptured using Hermès leather for the Museum of Supernatural History installation in the window of their Shanghai store. We can scarcely believe the incredible technique used to create these beautiful objects. The talented French duo behind these creatures have made many, many other amazing pieces using similarly vibrant colours and are well worth discovering at their website.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the most vibrantly stained of them all? Well, this mirror from Petite Friture, of course! We spotted this gorgeous piece at Maison & Objet last week among the their other amazing geometric mirrors.
We really like how this one references those gold-framed antique French mirrors you find at the flea markets but with luminous colour replacing the aged patinas.
We’re long-time fans of the Australian contemporary artist Jasper Knight and even have one of his artworks in our Sydney studio. We love his use of mixed-media, utilising things such as perforated board to give texture to his artworks while maintaining an explosive colour palette. Knight is currently part of The Summer Show at the Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane. Closes tomorrow.
Another Maison & Objet find, albeit from about a year ago, were these chic Segment and 3angle chairs from Maltese furniture makers Prostoria. The quality of their products is impeccable while their price point remains surprisingly affordable given the craftsmanship required to achieve the finish on their upholstered products.
We love the contemporary forms, the fresh colours, and the other inventive transformable pieces in their collection.
