Dealers Choice

I'm not sure why it took me so long to come across this book, but I'm glad I finally have a copy. "Dealers Choice" (released in May this year), with a foreword by Michael Bruno of, is a stunning compendium of the homes of some of the worlds greatest dealers of furniture and design. There are so many well known names amongst the list, but its the home of Parisienne, Mary Jourdan, in particular that has caught my eye. The monochromatic palette may not be to everyone's taste, but I love the quiet sophistication of it. This is but a taste of her apartment, let alone the entire book, so if you like what you see I highly recommend it.

This is my kinda drug. Two stunning original Tommi Parzinger chairs. A very naughty purchase, but you only live once, and living without these wouldn't be really living I think. Now I just need the patience to wait for them to be shipped...

riva, arriba!

Currently stocked in Lane Crawford for you Hong Kongers, although you'd better hurry because the brass is selling out fast! I couldn't help myself...I snagged a lovely cake stand and water jug...and now I want the cutlery, and the champagne bucket, and....

highly polished productivity

I've been eyeing off the brass limited edition version of the CH110 desk by Carl Hansen for a while now, so I was thrilled to finally see the real thing in person at Lane Crawford today. The original was designed by Hans Wegner in 1970, but I think the brass version is the perfect blend of Scandinavian modern and present day pizazz!

a floating paradise...

A reader kindly sent me images of this stunning Yacht, “NUMPTIA”, which was on show at Monaco Boat Show recently. The interior was done by someone unknown to me, Achille Salvagni, an Italian Architect. Definitely one to watch. It seems from his website that he specialises in boat interiors, so If I decide I'm in the market for a boat anytime soon, he'll be the man for the job!
