Sticks

Sticks is a cabinet system with boxes in four different widths and four different heights, standing on one leg. The total height of each Stick can always be different, because of the four different lengths of the legs (the sticks). The Sticks can be used as a lowboard, as a sideboard and as casual wardrobe (varying in height) or loose as a hall cabinet or bedside table. Available from Gerard De Hoop.

Interiors UK Show – Day 1

I went for a prelim scout today around a few of the halls at the NEC Show. LOVING what I saw!

A little advice for any designer wanting to take a look for ideas: When signing up do not put designer on your badge! The amount of stall holders who gave me a dirty look like I was going to steal their ideas! Better to say your from an interiors shop that supplies furniture etc, they think they might be able to make some money out of you so will be more co-operative!

Unfortunately all the halls have a no photography rule, but you may ask stall holders if you may take them.

Mainly looked at the lighting area today, some really beautiful designs being showcased. Have to say that massive chandeliers with thousands of small crystals seem to be ‘in’ at the moment. Some gorgeous ideas from about 100 stands – here’s the pick of the best (in my opinion)

Colours within a clear shell – Colors by Copenhagen

Rustic Candle Lanterns from Hill Interiors

Lighting inspired by a swan – Illuminati

Block colours from Endon

Thousands of crystals by First Class Lighting

Cage Pendant from Mullan Lighting

Double shades by Paulo Coelho

Medieval style lighting from Tuscanor Lighting

And many many more! Take a look at the Interiors UK 2012 Website to view more companies to have exhibited!

Milano Dining Range

It’s nice to see a different use to veneer. Yes they use the wooden panelling along the back of the chair like a lot of designs, but they enhance ebony’s natural grain so it accentuates when put next to the black suede. Also using a dark veneer like ebony allows the black suede of the chair covers to blend well with the dark wooden colour of the arms and legs, so they appear as one until you look closely. Unfortunately not available any more, but a beautiful piece of design.
