Spectacular tiles

photo4

Decorative tiles have adorned the façades of ancient Persian temples, Islamic mosques, palaces, medieval cottages and castles, Victorian churches, and modern homes.

Ceramic tiles can be used to fantastic effect creating a dramatic space within a modern interior. A space that is both spectacular and bold, eclectic, and tailored to the individual.

Floor tiles are generally made of ceramic or stone, however with recent technological advances rubber and glass tiles are now readily available from flooring specialists.

The room was full and overflowing

_DSC0023David Trubridge is rather clever. He’s also a keen sailor and  a bit of an adventurer.

In 1972, he graduated with a degree in Naval Architecture (Boat Design) and then he taught himself to make furniture.

Now, David is a New Zealand-based designer whose lighting, furniture and sculptural installations are found all over the world.

On Thursday, he gave an insightful presentation about the prints he has designed for Hemptech and his latest creative adventure, So Far, a book about his journey as an artist and designer.

With such beautiful design and photography… it was a real treat.

Designs of the Time

Last week, Leah and Blair from James Dunlop gave a fantastic presentation, at the Wellington Design Library, of the new Designs of the Time range.

It’s a well-travelled collection taking inspiration from Africa, Scandinavia, and the Orient. Take a nomadic journey with Bohemian-Chic style and a little bit of Gipsy love.

The many patterns and materials define the rhythm of the collection, offering a glimpse of faraway lands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look at the gorgeous patterns and such fabulous colourways!
