Just when you're feeling down, and a little bit battered or numbed by life in general, along comes a spectacularly shiny square-metre of table surface to put it all to rights. A perfectly mad place on which to produce the blueprint of your very individualism.
The perfect partner to the table’s personal transformative power is the Miami chair. Lightly push it back away from the desk, step in between the two objects and take a seat on the essence of simplicity, a chair stripped to its iconic form. Ultimately you find yourself arranged, alight the peak of your super fabulous golden self.
Fiasco. Guilt. Fear of love. A place to hide all the things we secretly desire yet are too scared to utter. The luscious things the perfect lover knows are never to be told. She dreams, she wonders, where to find this place. First she thinks Heaven, then The Beach; in the end she finds this place in Twisted Cherry.
The round 50-inch mirror surface is sunk into the graphic embrace of two palm fronds. The Sunset mirror is a wall-mounted declaration of the true summer paradise scenario that lingers just below the surface of the present moment.
FLORIDA / GLAM / V.I.P. BOWL
This sublime cast brass mass is all wrapped up, giving rise to an exquisite fruit bowl. Something akin to the treasure found at the end of a rewarding peregrination. This flamboyant crucible embodies a bit of wit and whimsy, reminiscent of the days when serving was still a big deal and servants should have been covered in kisses. Politics contained, this glam bowl is suitable only for strictly V.I.P. content.
The vibrant stream of light coursing from this adjustable self-standing steel flamingo is all about brightening up even the coldest of corners. Misjudgements, misguidance and mishits, they all disappear under the melting embrace of light. Like on the burning sun, where we never cry.
