The Style Set
Take a look at these soulmates of style - one vintage piece from the current Mr. Bigglesworthy collection, teamed with its modern compatriot...Parker Lowback Armchair + Studio Snowpuppe Take a pair of stunning Mid-Century armchairs from legendary Australian designer Parker, bring into this century with a geometric chevron upholstery, and team with one uber-modern geometric lampshade (crafted from just one folded piece of paper) by independent Dutch designers, Snowpuppe. What a duo. Wingback Armchair + Tui in Flight Wall Art Birds of a feather... a 'New Zealand native' Wingback Armchair, beautifully bold in black, alongside the wingspan of a Tui, handcrafted by New Zealand ceramicist Bob Steiner. Ercol Drinks Trolley + Muuto Carafe Have two design legends over for morning tea - this classic tea trolley from Ercol (imagine the very British Tea & Scones that would have been served on this through its history), with a piece by contemporary Dutch brand Muuto. The curves and calm colours of each work beautifully together. 1950's Floor Lamp + Steel Table Clean lines and curved steel are the hallmarks of both this iconic atomic form from the 1950's, and a contemporary side table by New Zealand designer, Nathan Goldsworthy. The perfect pair for a modern interior. Corona Chair + Penny Round Cushions Now, that's what you call a pop of colour! The EJ5 Corona Chair, designed by Paul Volther, makes a real statement (especially in that vibrant Firecracker colour!) We could see it teamed with bright felt cushions - the Penny Round range by young Australian designers, Castle. Finn Juhl Japan Chair + Japanese Beer Glasses An elegant, understated pair who share the clean aesthetic sensibilities of Japan. In 1953, Dutch designer Finn Juhl created this now-famous chair, inspired by the form of an ancient Itsukushima shrine. Almost 60 years later, young designer Hidetoshi Takahashi handcrafts these sublime little 'beer glasses'. Backhouse Console Table + Areaware Alarm Dock This classic cutie (from New Zealand's own Backhouse) would make a perfect bedside table, on which to put your Alarm Clock. Or should I say Alarm Dock - the clever product from AreawareAreaware that turns your iPhone into a nostalgic Flip-Clock style alarm.
