Designers | Tom Dixon Most

As the Milan Furniture Fair came to a close last month,Tom Dixon in particular came out shining. His independent curation MOST described as ‘an epicenter for the freshest ideas in communication, food, culture, design and the digital industrial revolution” delivered on lots of levels. Bringing together creative minds and international brands, the installation posed the questions of process and impact of design and how it can improve the world. I just can’t stop thinking now, how Tom Dixon’s new light ‘Etch’ would improve my world quite considerably too… Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Pinterest | Pic Of The Week

I’m on the hunt for some new posters and frames for Origin Interior’s casa and came across this beautiful hand pulled print ‘Eagle Ray’ by Banquet. It’s such a strong, graphic image and uses the negative space really well to make it look like the ray is swimming away.

The dark teal colour would go perfectly with our dresser, cushions and rug, but I think we’re on the verge of  a teal overload already, so will have to give it a miss. Navy or black would go work instead though, so I’m keeping my eye out for another version and one that ships to Australia!
Let me know if you find one…

Homewares | Ikea PS Collection

Ikea and classic aren’t generally terms that sit well together, but after 60 years in the interiors business, they certainly have a lot of pop culture designs to show for it.

This year for the Milan Furniture Fair, they gave their designers the challenge of re-innovating their own designs as well as others from yesteryear and the PS Collection was born. Increased functionality, sustainability (less chipping?) and progressive designs for the 21st Century were the aim of the brief and we think this inspired new range hits the mark perfectly. The collection will roll out in stores in August.

Pinterest | Pic Of The Week

So far this very sunny Easter weekend, we’ve been holed up in the flat prepping and painting to finally get rid of the hideous aubergine and olive colours that have plagued my eyes for the last 3 months. So this week’s picture is quite apt! Pantone is the only authority when it comes to colour and their simple charts have graced the faces of posters, ceramics, t-shirts and now eggs. Although we’ve had to keep it neutral with a light cream, I’m planning a few accent colours for my furniture projects where Pantone will definitely come in very handy.

Anyway, have a Happy Easter from Origin Interiors and enjoy the extra long weekend wherever you may be!

Pattern People | Design Days Dubai

Last week Dubai played host to the Middle East’s very first international design fair. Located at the bottom of the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, the exhibition showcased 22 international and local designers and galleries all under one tent. The mixture of well known talent and new local players gave the event an exciting energy of ‘newness’. Read more >>
