An Art Deco inspired home

Spotted and admired over at Residence... the Art Deco inspired home of Sofia Wallenstam of Swedish fashion house Dagmar.

Like the fashion label she runs with her sisters Karin and Kristina, Sofia's home draws inspiration from the decadent mood, colours and patterns of the 20s and 30s.


Resident at Multiplex

Amidst London Design Festival's many offerings one of the brands that caught my attention this year was New Zealand design house Resident who were showcasing their collection in a corner of Tom Dixon's Multiplex at the Old Selfridges Hotel.

The company was established in 2011 by Simon James and Scott Bridgens and their furniture and lighting range is a cool mix of slick contemporary design and high quality manufacture, with many pieces to covet.


5 trends from London Design Festival 2015


A guest edit by Studio Ashby.

It's a pleasure to welcome interior designer Sophie Ashby of Studio Ashby to Design Hunter today to share a special London Design Festival guest edit.

I first came across Sophie's work a couple of years ago. Her wonderful eye for picking out beautiful handcrafted pieces, antiques, original works of art and carefully chosen mid-century designs gives her work an eclectic richness I particularly admire.

In this guest post for Design Hunter she looks at some of the trends that were in evidence at London Design Festival this year and highlights the designs that caught her eye.


Serif TV

Serif TV by Bouroullec Brothers for Samsung | Design Hunter

Last week I was invited along to the beautiful neo classical River Rooms at Somerset House for the launch of Serif TV. The culmination of a 2 year collaboration between the Bouroullec Brothers and Samsung, Serif breaks away from the preoccupation with ultra flat screens and instead offers a design that is intended to sit more naturally within the home. The choice of both the location and the timing of the launch - during London Design Festival rather than at an electronics show - only served to reinforce the impression that this is a television that belongs not to the world of technology but to the world of furniture and design.


A good night's sleep

White sheets

Sleep is where we rest from the stresses and strains of living, from our daily journey through life. That we spend around a third of our lives in bed is a frequently cited statistic, but how much do we really know about our sleep? Are you someone who regularly sleeps soundly for 8 hours a night or do you frequently wake up still feeling tired? Do you know how well you slept last night? Have you ever considered whether or not it might be possible to improve the quality of your sleep?
