One of the jobs I do for my clients is Item Sourcing.
Often the client will send me a photo with a request to track down something in it.

Today I have been sent this photo and challenged to find:

  • the chairs
  • the light
  • the wallpaper

THE CHAIRS…

They are the Masters Chair designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell.

Starck pays homage to three contemporary design icons in a very clever way  – he has taken the silhouette of the Series 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen (1955), the Eames Molded Plastic side chair with Eiffel base (DSR) by Charles Eames (1950)  and the Tulip armchair by Eero Saarinen (1956) and woven them together to create something new.

THE LIGHT…

It is the BAU by Danish company Normann Copenhagen. It is a sculptural hanging/pendant lamp created from interlocking circles. When combined they create a really unique design.

It is made from Basswood and is available in two sizes and comes in a multi colour version as well.

THE WALLPAPER…

This is Verdure from the Arden collect by Zoffany (in association with artist Melissa White).
And in case you were wondering – Yes, it is inspired by the Elizabethan style of the late 16th century.

THE CROCKERY SET…

From Magpie Design Studio this mid-century inspired range, in muted colours, is based on the designer’s childhood memories of bird spotting with their i-Spy books. The range includes the Robin, Thrush, Wagtail and BlueTit.

I wonder if that gets me a seat at the dining table of 221B Baker Street, London?
