london design festival 2012 sweeps the city

Deirdre Brennan - Monday, September 24, 2012


Team Wallpaper have captured the essence of The London Design Festival 2012 with their people combing the width and breadth of London in search of all that is new ... launches, installations and exhibitions everywhere !!  


 These are a few of the standouts for me .... designer Lee Broom above and below, transformed his studio into an old grocery store complete with timber panelling, wooden crates, sawdust on the floor and 200 crystal bulbs.  I adore the juxtaposition of the glamorous crystal bulb hanging on your basic cord .... in a rustic grocery shop ... absolutely divine.


This elegant stacked desk by Rolf Sach for Linley again is a contradiction ... the extremely refined workmanship (no nails or screws) ... with the design based on the concept of stacking timber to dry.


I adore this high back reading chair by Amos Marchant for Lloyd Loom. I can picture this in any number of exotic locations !!


While on wicker ... these lights by The Andes House are fabulous ... singular or as a group ... I am loving the warm glow.

wallpaper magazine salutes italian design dynasties

Deirdre Brennan - Wednesday, August 15, 2012



Wallpaper magazine's September issue has wonderful reading on Italy's design dynasties and their empires. Images from design archives cover their history .... as well as a who's who of the reigning generation of family members.



Think fashion and furniture .....



Armani ... B+B ... Etro ... Poliform ... Ferragamo ...



Flos ... Marni ... Kartell ... Minotti ...



Missoni ... Molteni ... and more.



Why have they kept it all in the family ?



Only in Italy !!
