A lamp inspired by a petticoat, rugs inspired by the sea and a wallcovering inspired by a fingerprint. Intrigued? Then read on
Pinch has launched its first ever floor light. The Anders design was originally inspired by a couture underskirt, the twirls and folds of the petticoat are expressed here in an abaca fibre shade.
Abaca is a close relation of the banana plant, the fibre is a traditional millinery material and is one of the world’s strongest natural fibres and is inherently sustainable. The dark bronze-finished stem is combined of a hollow brass tube and a solid base, milled from a single billet of brass and fastened together with a turned brass rose.
I love Fameed Khalique’s showroom in the Furniture & Arts building on The King’s Road, it is a jewellery box or exotic and unusual materials.
The latest additions include new patterns and colourways for the wood veneer wallcovering. The range resembles straw marquetry, but can be used on a much larger more cost-effective scale. Meanwhile, new leather panelling resembles the multi-dimensional contours of fingerprints.
Buster & Punch has launched its first bathroom collection. This can be seen at the brand’s new concept store in Shoreditch. Cast Bathroom incudes vanity units, wet-rated hardware and accessories hand finished in solid metal.
The collection takes inspiration from industrial pipe work and plumbing fixtures and is available in brass, steel, black and gunmetal.
The new Coastal collection from Topfloor by Esti features hand knotted rugs inspired by the sea. Designs include Breaker, Reflection and Beach in atmospheric shades of grey, blue and sand. The rugs are all customizable in terms of colour, shape, size and materials and can be viewed at Esti’s showroom at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour.
