Josh & Louis – L’originale Collection

October 6th, 2010

As I’ve mentioned before, my apartment is a mix of a few different styles, including modern, Rococo and French Provincial.

I’m always on the search for a stand-out piece, and I think I’ve found the perfect piece for my bedroom.

This is the Josh & Louis L’originale Salon Chair is the first of the first of the collection, inspired by the opulence of Rococo and King Louis XV charm. The bright colours bring out the modernity and character of today, but still showing the eccentricity of Kings and Queens that would have once had their dramatic bottoms placed firmly in them.

The detailed frame is hand-carved Mahogany finished with a glass-like lacquer. The upholstery is Italian leather, of course of the finest grade, and it is bordered with nickel coated studding. They are comfortable and supportive, thanks to the webbed and sprung base.

They are a real collectors item, they are beautiful, they are comfortable and they are definitely the perfect piece for my eccentric taste in my eccentric bedroom!

If you are looking for me, I’ll be at Macleay on Manning in Potts Point purchasing it! All I need to do is decide which colour?

Available for around $3,270.

The Angle Bed At Planet Furniture

June 10th, 2010

I’m always trying to find unique pieces for the home, whether it’s for the lounge room, kitchen, or bedroom. I’ve found this incredible ‘Angle’ bed at Planet with is superbly made, designed and looks amazing.

The strength and density of spotted gum, with it’s sharp elegantly angled legs make this a rare piece for the bedroom. It’s the legs on an angle that make you do a double-take, wondering how the hell the bed balances this way! Most other timbers wouldn’t allow you to give the legs such a dramatic angle, but being a native Australian hardwood, spotted gum allows you to do this as it is about 3 times denser than most other hardwoods form around the world. Also with the legs angling in as they do, you are less likely to hit your feet on the bed when walking around it, which I have done many times.

It’s a very sleek and modern design that doesn’t take up too much space and has quite an understated impact. This is mainly due to the mirrored angle of the legs and the headboard reducing the impact of the mattress, making the bed appear smaller than it is. The bed I’ve pictured above is a Queen, but store owner Ross said “many people have mistaken it for a double due to this design feature.”

All of Planet’s furniture is made to order and they are always able to tailor each piece to best suit its intended space. Spotted gum comes in a range of tones, from light through to dark, figured or without and cooler or warmer tones, all of which can be specified when ordering. This gives you an amazing choice to suit any scheme and taste.

Queen size Angle bed is $3900 and King size Angle bed is $4200. Double and single also available.
