The Skohorn Made Sexy By Charles Wilson Designs

July 19th, 2010

I found it hard to place this one in a category – Vogue or Abode? Abode won.

This beautiful skohorn by Charles Wilson designs deserves a place on a wall in your home where it can be seen, and not hidden away in the laundry or shoe room.

It’s magnetic, so when you’re done with it, you simply attach the shoe horn to it’s base magnetically. Long gone are the days of losing things when there is a specific spot for them.

It’s elegant and curvaceous shape is luring. Made of stainless steel and nickel-plated zinc alloy.

Available from Top 3 by design for $179.

Eccentric Glamour On An Armhair At Edit

June 8th, 2010

EDIT is renowned for their stunning designs and creative fabrics, which are so elegant, yet somewhat scream eccentricity.

This simply stunning upholstered wingback ‘Chandelier’ arm chair is one of the standout pieces inside the store. Made from hemp, it’s natural, comfortable and made by skilled and passionate Australians.

Imagine this armchair in a stark white modern room, begging for one piece of standout furniture with colour, but also character. Or imagine it inside a bleached timber Hampton’s style home with white exposed beams, natural carpets, books, lamps and a glass of Scotch swirling away by the fire. Divine.

Upholstered Wingback armchair in EDIT ‘Chandeliers’ hemp – $2,900.

Have a look at this amazing piece at the EDIT store in Surry Hills.

Get Your Edit Timber Humbug Chairs

April 12th, 2010

A gracious store located in the chic middle section of the Crown Street vicinity on Albion Street is a store called Edit.

Edit is a very unique store to Sydney, starting from the owner to it’s products. Owned by Sharyn Storrier Lyneham, who is the former editor of Vogue Entertaining & Travel and Vogue Living. When I walked into the store knowing this, I expected alot from it. When I walked into the store, all my expectations were met.

The first thing you’ll notice is the smell. A beautiful Marc Jacobs fragrance diffuser, it set the mood for me and what was to be expected around ever turn in the store. There is colour everywhere – more colour then I have ever seen in a store. It works and it works beautifully.

The store is full of furniture, sculptures, lamps and other amazing pieces which you don’t know where to start looking. Most of the furniture is pre-owned, then turned into a masterpiece after the team at Edit get their hands on it. Covering it in their own fabrics which they design and make, the outcome is a piece of high fashion furniture with old-world charm.

I’ll be featuring pieces from the store over the coming weeks, but I thought I would start with one of the most striking to me, the Timber Humbug chairs, retailing for $990 each.
