I confess, I have a soft spot for mid-century furniture. But as all vintage treasure hunters would know, the best ones are always the ones that got sold. Here is an example, I’ve been obsessively looking for this Garth Chester magazine rack from the first day I saw it on our friends’ Mr.Bigglesworthy website. What a beauty!
Here in New Zealand, we are blessed with some super talented designers. Recent furniture shopping for our house has forced me to boil them down to a list of my very favourites. To begin with:
The Adjutant Table by Nathan Goldsworthy
L Dinning Table by David Moreland
Framed Armchair by David Moreland
Studio Chairs and Stools by Jason Whiteley for Resident
Tangerine Stackable Chairs by Simon James
Twig Coat Stand by Jamie McLellan for Fletcher Systems
Riddle Magazine hanger, white or black lacquered wood profiles with inside steel profiles for wall fixing. Wooden balls with rubber rings on polyester strings. A joy for the eyes by Isaac Chen.
There is something ceremonial about this pencil sharpener. Through the science flask, the ordinary sawdust for once becomes the subject of viewing. The manual movement of pencil sharpening becomes a ritual, a nostalgic act that ties to our pre-digital age. An A’ Design Awards winner by Jaeryoung Lee. Heart it!
