In­spired by Al­fredo Häberli’s sim­ple-yet-ef­fec­tive ‘Artà’ tiles, cre­ated for Mal­lor­can ce­ment tile spe­cial­ist Huguet, we set off on a quest to build our own equa­to­rial re­treat. The ochre palette, strong pat­tern and smooth fin­ish of the tiles set the tone for the rest of our finds, which in­clude a Wal­ter Knoll rug in­spired by the African desert; a mon­u­men­tal ter­ra­cotta pedestal by Ge­or­gian out­fit Rooms; sculp­tural metal cof­fee ta­bles by Henge and Holly Hunt; and crack­led glass ves­sels by Kengo Kuma for Lasvit. Tak­ing cen­tre stage is the ‘Lib­erty’ lounger by Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout, who trusted his creative in­stincts to hand­craft the an­gu­lar Amer­i­can wal­nut chaise longue with­out any prepara­tory sketches or mea­sur­ing equip­ment.

Ter­ra­cotta pedestal, €5,000, by Rooms. ‘Be Mine’ cof­fee ta­ble, price on re­quest, by Mas­simo Castagna, for Henge. ‘Yak­isugi’ glass, £130; vase, £410, both by Kengo Kuma, for Lasvit. ‘Sitawi’ rug, £18,111, by Wal­ter Knoll. ‘Lib­erty’ lounger, £7,007, by Joep van Lieshout, for Moooi. ‘Artà’ tiles, £131 per sq m, by Al­fredo Häberli, for Huguet. ‘Ronin Drink’ ta­ble, price on re­quest, by Holly Hunt.
