By Annie Wu
Whether indoors or outdoors, give your home an update and turn it into your weekend getaway with products from our designers. This month we selected 8 products that explore the power of bold colours and unique textures that can transform simple spaces into spaces full of happiness and energy. Then a closer look at ceramic products carved and detailed with personality. From products inspired by forests far away to echoes of the sweetness and simplicity in life, you don’t need to travel far to relax in a summer home.
Revitalise your interiors with this Carnival Cushion by SO KLARA, a luxuriously soft scatter cushion. When combined with other cushions in her collection, can create an oasis and paradise of beauty.
It is inspired by the carnival of Rio de Janeiro and captures the sights, sounds and colours of Brazil’s biggest fiesta.
SO KLARA provides handcrafted silk scarves, luxurious home décor accessories and vibrant art fabrics. Having a fine art and counselling background, she combines modern and traditional printing techniques to create abstract and painterly designs full of positivity, confidence, style and elegance.
This simple yet textured, tactile plate is an essential for any outdoor parties and gatherings. It’s available in soft turquoise, green and grey and brings out the flavour and sweetness of any dessert or dish. They also come in two sizes, side plate or dinner plate.
Linda Bloomfield designs and makes tableware with unique characteristics such as dimples and visible throwing lines that show the hand of the maker. She makes her own range of glazes to finish the outside and colour on the inside.
To add a bit of personality and flair to your home, we suggest the Orishe Vase by Headpsrung. It twists and turns and creates quite an illusion of a never ending spiral. A stand alone sculpture or a lovely vase to display your greatest finds in the garden. This eye-catching piece, made from bone china was inspired by origami (the Japanese art of paper folding).
Headsprung is founded by Hemal Patel, a design engineer based in London, specializing in designing and manufacturing contemporary home accessories, furniture and lighting. Headsprung takes regular everyday objects and inject them with flair, personality and functionality to create original works.
Special guests require a special treatment and presentation. Bring out your best dishes and sweets in these multicolour trays. They are made from laminated wood, sustainably sourced Scandinavian birch wood.
Jonna Saarinen, a Finnish textile designer, combines influences from Nordic nature and memories of times gone by. She currently works as a textile designer and screen printer in her S. London studio.
An empty wall or blank space, we suggest Linescapes 20 mini-prints that can be displayed in frames of various sizes and arranged in various shapes to suit the spot. While sipping a nice cold drink, take a look and walk through the streets of famous cities. Pass by landmarks and architecture jewels, behold!
Linescapes is a multidisciplinary brand set up by free-lance architect Amalia. She offers interior design services and a huge range of work. Her eclectic style is inspired mainly by the aesthetics of the Mid Century movement, beautiful vintage design and by a strong sense of colour and graphics that comes from her experience as an architect.
Another option is to bring the outdoors indoors. These suspended pots are perfect for creating vertical arrangements and flourishes of flowers, herbs, and greenery. Escape from the heat, grab a herb from the Hover Planter, and cook something delicious.
Thelermont Hupton is the collaboration of Yve Thelermont and David Hupton. They were trained in cabinet making and for them, design is a labour of love, searching for a story or specific reason to design and produce an object. They focus on detail, functionality and high productive value, delivering distinct designs that we can live alongside.
Add a bit of sweetness and passion – there we have a short moment of ice cream bliss. Enjoy your ice cream in style. This Blaue Blume Ice Cream Bowl is part of a larger collection, a popular collector’s item in our shop. If you haven’t notice, those legs are actually part of the spoon.
