Rees Roberts

I think my heart almost skipped a beat when I saw these images of a recent project by NY based firm Rees Roberts + Partners. The firm's website has been recently updated and contains all manner of loveliness. I love the clean lines and elegant simplicity in this apartment. I'm hoping to move apartments soon, and I only wish it was to a place that looked like this! *sigh*

A Bespoke Journey

I'm very excited to announce the recent launch of the very first book by Hong Kong's hottest designer, Andre Fu.

Entitled "A Bespoke Journey", the coffee table book features some of Fu's work with his firm, AFSO, over the last ten years. Including internationally acclaimed projects such as The Upper House hotel in Hong Kong, the Fullerton Bay Hotel in Singapore, his work with agnès b, and the countless stylish restaurants he's done around the world, its sure to be a winner.

If you are a fan, like I am, the book can be purchased in Hong Kong at Lane Crawford Lifestyle stores, leading book shops in the Asia Pacific region, or online through Amazon

I felt as though Christmas had come early this year when the new catalogue from Italian furniture company Tondelli landed on my desk this week. I feel head over heels in love with the entire collection. The upholstered pieces look well designed, generous and actually comfortable, while the casegoods seem sturdy, well proportioned and really versatile. The use of hammered bronze for legs and lamp bases remind me of the work of the Giacometti brothers, and I guess it was the designers inspiration as the floor lamp (see bottom image) is named Diego. If you are just as in love with these images as I, check our their website for more...
