What’s more important to you: how you dress yourself or how you dress your home? It’s a consideration that has puzzled design lovers for many years. Both the wardrobe and the home are extensions of our identities and therefore, for a design lover, a chance for expression. The upside to that most difficult of questions is that you don’t have to choose – you can build a formidable wardrobe while taking your interior design to new levels. This week’s top 5 items to drop just goes to prove that the two live side by side. PLEASE WAIT To Be SEATED, Menu and The Skateroom deal with minimal interior design while the wardrobe gets updates from Our Legacy and Native North.
PLEASE WAIT To Be SEATED stands out in the world of Scandinavian interior design
thanks to its broad range of inspirations. You’re as likely to see a futuristic table lamp
as you are a wooden chair inspired by classic milking stools. The Spade Chair
is a mix between classic milking stools and the handle of a spade – a combination we can’t say we ever expected to see… This versatile wooden chair is perfect for the bathroom, hallway or even dining room.
Our Legacy seamlessly blends modern, statement-making Avant-gardism with understated Scandinavian design cues. The result is a collection of modern menswear that you can style with your existing wardrobe but that promises to leave its mark, too. The Our Legacy Chino 22
is cut from medium wale corduroy made from 100% cotton. These regular-fit men’s cords
feature a tapered leg and are finished with a central fold to each leg to elevate the heavyweight corduroy trousers
When it comes to Scandinavian interior design
is the safest of bets. The Copenhagen-based brand deals in simplicity and innovation. Each item uses premium materials and, most importantly, fulfils its purpose. The Anthracite Stone Lamp
is designed by Norm Architects to create a soft, cosy light that offers the same natural effect as a candle. This is achieved by a vintage incandescent bulb and the grey, smoke-tinted glass shade that sits on top of a stoneware base. This is the ideal minimal desk lamp
for a cosy evening in.
not only presents a perfect way to display some of history’s most iconic artworks in your own home, it also does a world of good for at-risk young people. On its surface, this Van Gogh Self-Portrait Triptych
offers a contemporary way to display one of history’s most well-known artworks at home. Look beneath the surface, though, and you’ll see that your purchase helps fund an NGO charity called Skateistan that works to help young people in Afghanistan and Cambodia to navigate their world through the medium of skateboarding and teaching.
