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.
