Livingetc April Issue: Modern Style Decor Ideas – Discover Livingetc editor’s picks for april 2018 issue!
A property once owned by an order of nuns has been turned into a glamorous family home that’s pure design heaven.
Get the look: The sofa is a vintage find – try Circa for similar. This is the Beetle side chair by GamFratesi for Gubi. The Wisp side tables, by the sofa and chair, are by Ochre. The Enoki side tables are by Philipp Mainzer for e15 and the standing mirror is by Carl Auböck. The rug is from West Elm. This is the Triad 9 pendant by Apparatus Studio.
THE SWAN AND EGG CHAIRS TURN 60 WITH A NEW LOOK
Happy birthday to a pair of iconic chairs. Arne Jacobsen would have been proud. It’s 60 years since Arne Jacobsen brought the covetable Egg and Swan chairs to life. Now, to mark the 60th anniversary, Fritz Hansen has updated them for a limited-edition Arne Jacobsen Anniversary Collection.
Available at The Conran Shop, the new collection salutes the silhouettes of the iconic designs but gives them a fresh coat; buttery leather, smooth wool and a 23-karat gold coated base.
HOCKNEY-INSPIRED VIBRANT COLOUR
Layer up bold blocks of vibrant colour and vivacious pattern to create a sunny, Hockney-inspired space. Follow the artist’s lead and add drama to a domestic setting – graphic fabrics are a key motif.
