Welcome to the October edition of Home Time. This month, I’ve rounded up a whole bunch of interiors finds from up-and-coming designers and some of your favourite big brands. I’ve got all budgets and all styles covered, so let’s jump straight into it!
One of my favourite discoveries this month is the work of Squint, a Melbourne based illustrator/designer who uses his love for mid century design to create contemporary large scale prints that hold there own in either a modern or retro space. All prints are limited editions of 55 and explore colour while also resonating on an emotional level, which only really emerges with a bit of distance and a squint of the eyes.
Believe it or not, I first wrote about Another Studio on Checks and Spots in 2010! Well, they’re back with Lingum Fold, a striking new timber range that plays with geometric shapes and origami folds. Consisting of a pencil pot, vase, lampshade and bowls, Lingum Fold is produced in their London studio.
Country Road’s High Summer home collection has just dropped and it’s a beauty. Defined by washed-back hues and natural textures it is both lived-in yet understated. Some of my favourite finds are the linen bedding, marble vases and graphic cushions.
mistergoma Height Chart
mistergoma is the love child of Melbourne-based furniture maker Michael Virgona.
Michael has a passion for all things timber and takes pride in selecting beautiful pieces of recycled timber and breathing new life into them, creating a piece of furniture that will be loved by a new owner for years to come. His pieces are bespoke and some are one off. But his core range includes dining tables, stools, benches, day beds, coat racks – and my favourite, the mistergoma Height Charts. More than being a record of precious family memories, the Height Chart is the perfect statement piece for any room.
