BRIGHT – HACKNEY

We couldn’t pick a better time to visit “Bright” in Hackney than the bank holiday weekend when the sun didn’t find it necessary to stop shining. The team from the wine shop P Franco opened Bright at the beginning of May and it’s an all round delightful experience. The weather suitably complemented their branding of […]

CHARLESTON FARMHOUSE – EAST SUSSEX

This was our first visit to the seemingly unassuming farmhouse nestled amongst the shadows of the South Downs but it certainly won’t be our last. Home to artist Vanessa Bell and her very modern family, the house is an incredible example of limitless artistry and craft.   While from the exterior the faded plaster tones […]

BRAT – SHOREDITCH

We don’t tend to disagree with the opinion of Giles Coren, and on the subject of Brat there’s thankfully no exception. Heralded by Coren as “Europe’s most exciting new restaurant” we found Tomos Parry’s fresh digs to be serving up some of the most insanely simple yet perfectly executed plates of food we’ve eaten in […]

The refurbished Central London pub from the people behind Palomar, The Barbary & Jacob The Angel. The recently renovated 250-year-old pub, The Blue Posts has a little secret downstairs.

Maison et Objet Paris

This was Article’s first trip to Maison et Objet for the interiors exhibition which is held just outside Paris twice a year.

We were delighted to catch two discussions with some of our most favoured British designers. On Saturday we sat with the team at Studio Ilse and George Smith to hear about their design development for their fabulous new sofa and ottoman desgin – we adored the simplicity and homogeneity of the upholsted feet on both pieces. Sunday morning we were fortunate to catch the discussion hosted by Tom Dixon with the Rising Talents Award winners, Giles Miller Studio, Zuza Mengham. Studi Swine, Marcin Rusak, John Booth and Sebastian Cox. It was refreshing and inspiring to see so much British talent at the foreground of the show.

We’ve pulled together a small edit of some of our favourite pieces from the exhibition and also identified key trends that we think will be strong influencers for 2017 interiors.
