Fur­ni­ture (Con­tem­po­rary)

Con­tem­po­rary de­sign has given us bold new forms, writ­ing new paradigms of beauty by break­ing con­ven­tions on colour use, and with svelte forms.

In many in­stances, these new lines and sil­hou­ettes are inspired by forms in na­ture, then rein­ter­preted into a couch, din­ing ta­ble, etc. Whether aim­ing for a sense of volup­tuous­ness, or a clean, in­dus­trial ef­fi­ciency, con­tem­po­rary fur­ni­ture has en­larged our vo­cab­u­lary and ap­petite for fresh out­look and verve.

“For home fur­nish­ing, I like a mix of mod­ern and clas­sic, styles that have clean, stylish lines. I also love to col­lect items when I travel. My favourite items in­clude a brass bell from Prague, hand painted vase from Is­tan­bul and a wooden sail­boat from

Bali.”
