Tim­o­thy Oul­ton is al­ways in­ter­est­ing and his 2018 col­lec­tion again pushes bound­aries, fea­tur­ing in­no­va­tive pieces hand­made over count­less hours us­ing sim­ple tools and beau­ti­ful ma­te­ri­als. As al­ways, the de­signer is in­spired by the past, pre­sent­ing old ideas from mod­ern per­spec­tives, giv­ing them twists that are in­no­va­tive and, sim­ply, gor­geous. The In­cep­tion Cof­fee Table, for ex­am­ple, is in­spired by in­fin­ity mir­rors from the 1970s. It fea­tures a glass table­top that lights up within to re­veal a seem­ingly end­less line of re­flec­tions, ap­pear­ing smaller and smaller as they fade into the dis­tance. LED an­tique bulbs cre­ate a light­ing ef­fect that’s soft and mel­low, per­fect for evening en­ter­tain­ing. An el­e­gant glass-topped table when the lights are off, it trans­forms, when it’s turned on, into a por­tal that takes you into an­other di­men­sion, a suit­ably dra­matic ad­di­tion to your liv­ing room.
