Can’t travel? Don’t despair, with a bit of clever decoration, you can turn your home style from minimalist to over-the-top. The results will look like you spent days decorating your home, when actually all you needed was that one statement piece.

Telling time

Get a statement piece such a wall clock designed by American designer George Nelson whose fascination for clocks led him to believe that people used clocks to read time by discerning the relative position of the hands, which made the use of numbers unnecessary. Furthermore, since most people wore wristwatches, he assumed that clocks had become more of a decorative element for interiors. Well said indeed.

Light the way

Lamps are necessary in certain corners of a room and the Petite Potence by Jean Prouvé is perfect for a study room as the swing arm is 103 cm long, with a powder-coated finish in colours derived from the original hues used by Prouvé. The first version of the Potence wall lamp was created in the 1940s for his own home which was a simple light bulb affixed to a long, pivoting steel bar, which is held by a steel wire. This functionalist, purist design was soon produced in various sizes, with an added handle on larger models to facilitate the swivel movement.

A cut above the rest

Fresh cuts of flowers add cheer to any home and respect it by putting them in a Nuage vase. The design is reminiscent of a cloud, the motif done with aluminium profiles of varying lengths. The cavities in the basic form are now positioned upright, dividing the vase into eight individual tubes that can be used for the artful arrangement of flowers.

Sweet dreams are made of these

After a hard day at the computer you need a proper rest. It starts with a good mattress but sheets are just as important too. Silky Miracle offers the sensuality of silk satin from the Fairy bedlinen collection. Linens’ design feature include fine piping and mother-of-pearl button fastenings.
