Color Magic: Paint Graphic

June 27, 2014

Instead of making some totally out-of-place and unnecessary feature walls, sometimes your paint can do the magic. All you need to do is to pick your favorite colors, use your creativity in the graphic treatment and combinations, and see how that goes! Our suggestion would be to try it on a particular wall, but don’t do it all over the place. And you can definitely make that simple piece of art stand out. It will become the personal signature of your home.

Hopefully, we can finally get to do this in one of our projects this year. Anyone?

Steel Stool by Noon Studio: A Stool. A Table. A Bookshelf.

February 17, 2014

Recently saw this Steel Stool designed by Noon Studio.

It can be used as a magazine rack or side stool for your sofa or bed. It’s stackable to become a coffee table or bookshelf. It can match any contemporary home perfectly. Very simple and clever design indeed.

Want one? or four? or eight?

Play It Like LEGO: Bloc’d Sofa by Scott Jones

December 16, 2013

Bloc’d Sofa is a smart modular seating solution designed by US designer Scott Jones.

It reminds me of LEGO. It’s simple, flexible and playful. Just use your creativity and have fun with it! You can easily come up with many combination possibilities, offering multiple seating arrangements. It’s made of steel, soft maple and upholstered foam. With its contemporary look, it’s just the perfect option for the compact homes in Hong Kong.

I wonder when it will be available in Hong Kong and how crazy the dealers will mark it up for?

Brick Lane in Shanghai: The Commune Social

October 29, 2013

Just came back from a personal trip to Shanghai a few weeks ago. Finally got a chance to visit The Commune Social, a Tapas, Dessert and Cocktail bar located on Jiang Ning Road of Jing An District. It is designed by the renowned Neri & Hu Design & Research Office, one of my personal favorite.  It’s minimalist industrial design, mixed with fine commercial branding elements. A very cozy place with sufficient ambient lighting, which reminds of Brink Lane of East London.

And don’t forget to check out Design Republic next door, where you get to see the best contemporary designer furniture and lights.

Live in The Living Cube!

September 3, 2013

It’s a media console.

It’s a bookshelf.

It’s a closet.

It’s your hidden storage.

Oh, you can also sleep in it.

Imagine your life inside The Living Cube, designed by Till Koenneker.

Have you found the RIGHT accessories?

July 24, 2013

Accessories are very important. That poster, that plant, that cushion, that book, that carpet, that glass…… altogether they give life to your home. They provide the ultimate personal touch and help differentiate your home from everyone else’s.

They make every home “one-of-a-kind”.

So, spend enough time to find your home accessories, for they can do wonders.

Have fun!

Furniture….. To DIE For.

“Shelves For Life” by London designer William Warren.

I recently saw this on the internet. I have to admit, it’s not new. It was originally launched in 2005 London Design Festival, and it’s quite a stunning idea. When you are alive, it’s a nice bookshelf for your home. When you are gone, it can be reassembled as a coffin, and you can have your name engraved on the brass plate at the bottom.

For only £350.

I am sure this probably won’t become very popular among the Chinese society, but I can certainly say, some furniture is meant to last for a lifetime.
