Add ac­ces­sories

Identity - - ECO -

If you pre­fer to re­flect your per­son­al­ity through smaller pieces, look at ac­ces­sories such as the scat­ter cush­ions from eno Stu­dio’s Ter­razzo col­lec­tion, the Braid double can­dle­holder in resin by Zaha Ha­did, or a pair of Phare tea lights by To­mas Krai for Nude. The lat­ter com­prise a wide-based glass cylin­der into which a gold cone-shaped tea light-holder is placed.

We par­tic­u­larly like the quirky Hid­den Vases on the va­lerie ob­jects stand at Mai­son & Ob­jet. They started out as a re­search project by Rot­ter­dam-based de­signer Chris Ka­bel and re­sulted in three mod­els in metal, glass and ce­ramic.

An­other high­light at Mai­son & Ob­jet was Swarovski, which brought its Ate­lier Swarovski Home col­lec­tion. The stand­out piece was Crys­tal Vase, de­signed by Aldo Bakker in blue or black di­a­mond, and which com­ple­ments the ex­ist­ing range of ab­stract mod­u­lar vases in crys­tal, mar­ble and pink onyx.

In­spi­ra­tion for the floor was found at the Ste­pevi stand where three new col­lec­tions were on show: Lace, Blos­som and Luxxx. Blos­som caught our eye, in­spired by the buds of May and the re­birth of na­ture. As with ev­ery Ste­pevi col­lec­tion, the colours have been cho­sen to rep­re­sent cer­tain ideas; Blos­som’s Ti­ta­nium Grey & Dark Gold colour­way sug­gests a golden dawn break­ing through the dark of night. An em­boss­ing tech­nique is ap­plied dur­ing the tuft­ing process that cre­ates a thick and tac­tile pile.
