The Style Set - Executive Taste

Welcome to The Style Set - where we pair one piece from the Mr Bigglesworthy catalogue, with a coterie of contemporary design, to create one dream space.

And today, we're imagining a suave study, starring our Backhouse Executive Desk... Oud Lamp Be still, my beating brass heart! Make a statement in the study with this modernist design. From New Zealand architect and sculptor Nat Cheshire. Krups Clock & Vintage Cube Calendar Keep tabs on time with this genuine 70's German wall clock, and 60's cube calendar. Different decades, same great taste for bold graphics. Both from Present & Correct. Midori Brass Pencil & Case If we could possess just one writing instrument for the rest of our lives; this may very well be it. Beautifully designed by a Japanese company who've been in business since the 1950's, then further designed by time and use - the solid brass pencil and matching case developing a unique patina as the surface oxidises over years. Available from Notemaker. Leather Laptop Portfolio Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. From Canadian design studio Mjolk. Koostik Speakers The simple, handcrafted maple form of the Koostik works like the body of an acoustic guitar, naturally amplifying the volume of an iPhone's speakers by 2-4 times. Buy online at Koostik.com. Field Notes Memo Books The world has fallen in love with the Field Notes brand and their unassuming little notebooks. Available in virtually any colour way you can think of, and with gridded, ruled and plain paper. Where beautiful stationery is sold. Wire Desk Basket If your files don't fit in this, you're simply doing too much work. From our friends at Father Rabbit.
