Refined Elements Collection Opens Saturday, 25 June
As the seasons change and winter approaches, Refined Elements offers an opulent fusion of materials and international design perspectives that embrace indoor living.
Join the team at Mr. Bigglesworthy at the Gallery for a refreshing tea and seasonal treats at the collection opening.
Saturday, 25 June, 10am – 4pm, 15 Williamson Ave, Ponsonby
All pieces from the collection will also be available online.
The colours and shapes of mid century design add luxury and character to the intimate winter interior. The collection showcases marble, brass, chrome, rosewood, walnut, oak and teak. These high end materials are interpreted across time and origin by some of the world's most important mid century designers.
The suite of considered designs have been hand picked by Dan and Emma Eagle and include designs from the United States and throughout Europe – The UK, Denmark, Italy and The Netherlands. A particular favourite piece is a sculpural Italian/American 1950s bar cart. "It's hard to top the lavish and extravagant design aesthetic of the Italians. We haven't come across anything like this before – it's a piece that has really inspired us. This bar cart is the perfect place for mixing a favourite drink on a cold night".
A sleek, pink marble lamp from the United States sits comfortably with an elegant 'Model 66' teak sideboard by Ib Kofod Larsen of Denmark. Bold, sophisticated lines of moulded plywood drawn out in an armchair by Plycraft are teamed up with an elongated platform sofa with marble insert panels and pair of walnut coffee tables by Adrian Pearsall.
