2011 Style Guide
A short list of our favourite things from an exciting year of travel through Europe and new ventures as an online store.Store: Droog offers experimental furniture like you've never seen before. You can pick up the occasional piece in NZ or shop online. We couldn't get over the amazing update of this old fashioned dresser. Visit the store in person if you're in Amsterdam. Furniture in Film: "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Series. This dark thriller series based on the Stig Larsson novels is set in Sweden. Look out for the mid century style items onset. City: Berlin. We loved our week there and were constantly discovering original, beautifully designed indie stores amidst a culture of style. Not to mention the beer. Exhibition: The Wapping Project in London by Yohji Yamamoto "Making Waves" was in conjunction with an installation at the V&A. International Blog: Trendland meets every need for your daily uptake of design, art, fashion and culture. Local Blog: Fancy! New Zealand Design Blog we love Alana's take on New Zealand style. Purchase: A little indulgence to finish off the year, we invested in an R160 Featherston Rocking Chair. This chair definitely rocks but sorry it's not for sale! Wine: Dan likes Hewitson Miss Harry GSM 2010. Buy two - one's never enough. Emma likes The Third Man Riesling. When does a wine taste this good and look so stylish at the same time? Recipe: Jamie Oliver Spaghetti with Salami and Fennel. We hadn't tried using fennel before this but we're sold now. You won't regret the search to find it.
