Perfectly fusing modern design principles with eastern sensibilities, the Suzy Wong Loveseat Collection is the essence of sophistication. It is created by design guru Kenneth Cobonpue and will take your breath away the first time you see it. It is made from traditional materials such as abaca, rattan, lampakanai, and wood. Its pieces are characterized by high backs which create lovely enclosures. Loveseats regained popularity a few years ago and have been interpreted by designers in different ways. Suzy Wong is Kenneth Cobonpue’s fresh take on the old design.
Only a handful of décor pieces have the ability to effortlessly embrace the interplay of comfort, informality, and rustic sophistication. The structural and visual design of the Biknit Chaise by Moroso demonstrates the designer’s rare aptitude in merging the elements of informality and elegance in a single piece of artwork. Designer Patricia Urquiola perfectly utilizes texture, dramatic patterns, and exaggerated aesthetics to bring out both the abstract and functional aspects of this lounge chaise.
Eclectic designs were once a preserve of the esoteric, the minimalists at heart. Today, many are embracing the combination of whimsy, chic and cleanness espoused by eclectic décor. The Shanghai Table by Established & Sons is a modern display of whimsical, playful elegance infused with a statement of simplicity. In creating this structurally versatile table, designer Allesandro Ciffo experiments with solid, sharp clean lines and contrasts these minimalist attributes with a splurge of color as is depicted by the multicolored beams.
When retro designs are merged with modern architecture, the result is a match made in heaven. Only few pieces of decor are able to attain this rare yet alluring mix of old and new. The Polka Dots Buffet by Horm is one of them. It embodies a mishmash of contemporary artwork infused with an unmistakable retrograde vibe. Designed by the renowned architect Toyo Ito, this storage and decorative unit is characterized by solid, clean, and sharp edges that are characteristic of a minimalist masterpiece.
Abstract décor always resonates with the bold at heart; those with a free spirit, a desire for contrast and not afraid of the engaging tension created by such odd pieces of art. In designing the Alice Illuminated Chair for Edra, artist Jacopo Foggini sought to play around with the elements of light, translucence, color, texture, and monocoque architecture. The outer plastic construction that makes up the body of this seat is a brilliant amalgamation of hot pink, neon yellow, and the glowing fluorescence of green and blue polycarbonate. A five-meter string of LED bulbs lights make up the colorful interior to create a semblance of psychedelic art.
Who isn’t desirous of a cozy yet elegant seat that you can sink into as you sip your favorite Kir Royale? In all its velvety lusciousness, the Rose Chair by Edra is a perfect masterpiece for your vibrant window office, an eye-catching pretzel in your spacious living room and a soothing companion in your bedroom. Daintily hand-designed by the talented Masanori Umeda, it is easy to see why this precious seat embodies all the elegance of haute couture artistry.
Give your bedroom a touch of island paradise with the Voyage Bed by Kenneth Cobonpue. It is a low profile piece lovingly crafted in black or brown rattan. It has a beach-inspired look and features an oversized headboard and a simple footboard. The headboard makes a great centerpiece and freshens up the look of any bedroom. Voyage is a statement piece that creates a lovely atmosphere in your bedroom and sets the mood for the rest of the décor.

Juraj Vanca of Brno based DESIGN ATAK sent us 3D renderings of a modern country house the studio envisioned for a young family in Moravia, the Czech Republic. The brief of the project requested a modern and fresh interior approach, in accordance with the rural surroundings. According to the project developers, the main material employed this house is oak, which is a traditional furniture material used in the area: “We tried to keep the interior simple and bright by using natural shade of wood and lighter colors with combination of anthracite to create balanced contrast”. Glass kitchen worktops and glass legs used for the kitchen island add a surprise element to the overall scheme.
