Retro 1950s design that works with modern style.
Originally designed by George Nelson in 1958, the swag chair is ideal furniture for a home office and best paired with an open-legged desk to show off its elegantly sculpted base. Its unique shape and wide, flat armrests make it comfortable, too. Today it is still produced according to Nelson’s original design but using earth-friendly polypropylene and chrome tubing.
What a unique concept. One can purchase the tiles separately and form a design unique to your specific location. Easily constructed by bending and joining the shapes with special “rubber bands”. I am sure you will agree the results are amazing.
Isnt this incredible, love the concept and they way its been exuctuted……. Excellent !!

Well I would love to, but John Galliano beat me to it! A few days ago this wonderful tree was unveiled at Claridges, the hotel in London know for its 30’s deco. Mr Galliano chose to make this giant 20 foot tree with a “frosty” feel to it, with ice blue exotica, snow leopard and parrots…………………. Quite stunning, especially the way it has been lit to cast wonderful shadows on the wall. I love it, what do you think?
I came across this image of a french toile. These have to be an all time classic and one of my favourite fabrics. The way this one has been used puts me in mind of Fornasetti, take a look at his website, so inspirational.
well that was in interesting time………. I have just come away after champagne, delectable canapes, a tour around the world of Clive Christian and being sprayed in the worlds most expensive perfume…
The best bit though, was talking to a very witty and charming man who actually comes from Tunbridge Wells, and who like me has an insatiable appetite for design, think we shall be getting together to “cross pollinate” soon !
These images are truly inspiring to me, the sumptous embroidery on the sleeves, an image I can draw upon when designing bespoke fabrics
Love the pleated affect of the fabric here, so architectural, structural, feels like I could do some wonderfully large paper sculptures using these forms in paper
