Dis­cov­ered on a Sin­ga­porean stopover, this art­work by Hong Zhu An stole Grant’s heart. He sent a pic­ture to in­te­rior de­signer Libby for ap­proval – warn­ing that he loved it so much, he was de­ter­mined to get it any­way. In the end, it worked per­fectly, not only match­ing the room’s grey and teal colour scheme, but also pro­vid­ing a mod­ern foil to the an­tique buf­fet above which it is hung. “Be­ing in a Per­spex box, rather than a frame, it has just the right con­tem­po­rary feel,” says Libby. “If it had been framed, that spot would have been verg­ing on too ‘clas­sic’.” Visit Ikea for a range of mod­ern frames, ikea.com/au.
