Gina Pierce is a London based designer and dear friend of Modenus, who uses digital technology as well as traditional hand print techniques to make her distinctive fabrics, wallpaper and more, many of which are distinctly British. The designs above feature her Peeling Paint design, available in several colorways.
Diane Paparo Studio
Diane Papora is all about luxury. Her handcrafted American furniture are pieces to love, enjoy and pass on to future generations. We consistently argue that real sustainability is about buying things that will last and that you will want to last. Quality of design, attention to detail and superior craftsmanship are evident in everything she sells. The Dario Sofa, shown above, features a seductively curved back and a dark walnut stained frame and legs. Sit on this and you will immediately feel more elegant, smarter and, in a general sense, pleased with your life.
‘Strength in simplicity’ is the guiding philosophy of LA based Phase Design. Owner / designer Reza Feiz tends to feature wood, metal and fiberglass. His Wired Dinning Table comes in solid American walnut, ebonized solid oak, or natural solid oak top and is a great example of his simple yet dramatic work.
Spanish firm Arxe spend their lives searching Europe for old or antique material in wood, leather, skins, textiles, iron other metals, chairs, lamps and lighting equipment. They then turn it into hand crafted furniture and one-of-a-kind textiles for the home. It follows, therefore that the raw ingredients for each piece are rare and the resulting work produced in very limited quantities. Definitely worth seeing.
Vin de Garde
In our experience, clients who care about their wine are delighted when designers understand both the need to store those treasured bottles well and the pleasure a dedicated and attractive presentation of a good collection can bring. Canadian specialists Vin de Garde are the go-to folk for this sort of thing. They supply custom fridges, traditional cellars, modern storage and more. They also offer great advice with a free consultation service.
Another five previews tomorrow!
