Small home office


If you think you don’t have room for an office, think again. With so many of us working from home, it’s important to create a workspace that divides the two. This example is a creative, functional office ideal for the minimal loving homeworker. It is small, but does the job.

Morten & Jonas’s Treet table has a top made of three trays


Another brand satisfying our appetite for Scandinavian design is Norwegian design duo Morten & Jonas. This striking lounge table, coined Treet has a multifunctional tabletop that consists of three trays made of solid oak that have been either colour stained or smoked. The green-coated metal frame holds the trays in place, creating a fragmented and modern tabletop.

Storage: Floor to ceiling cupboards


If you found a property with fine architectural detail count yourself lucky. Those who didn’t may want to take inspiration from this classic storage solution which works well in both a modern and traditional context. Why not hire a joiner and build floor to ceiling storage? The invisible Kitchen by i29 interior architects is a brilliant example of the style without glass. Custom made carpentry won’t come cheap, but the look is timeless.

Who said bathrooms should be white? Many people shudder at the thought of a coloured bathroom suite. The first thing that springs to mind is the avocado bathroom suite. Fear not, Ceramica Globo, one of the exhibitors at Salone del Mobile is breathing fresh life into bathroom design focusing on the potential of colour.

Globo 08-2014 032

Re-edit salon by Sides Core Studio


Re-edit salon shows no signs of the typical layout or paraphernalia associated with traditional hair studios. Sides Core Studio has stripped the Osaka salon bare and furnished the space with a mixed range of contemporary furniture.


Plain net curtains have never looked so appealing and add a hint of mystery to the white interior.


The designers installed adjustable ceiling hung ropes held in place with bright hooks to prop up mirrors at an angle.


An arch shape seamlessly links the identity from the logo to mirrors.










In a purposeful move to avoid the common salon look Sides Core Studio have created a relaxed setting for clients to “refresh their heart and mind.’’
