In/Berlin

Thursday, 28 January 2016


I thought I'd slip back into blogging and make wild promises about this year being the year in which I publish content consistently and without fail.  But hey, we're day 28 of 2016 so I'm scrapping that latter pledge and getting straight down to business.

Also, hello. How are you?

I spotted these images a while back of a loft apartment and studio somewhere in Berlin and was quite taken with the high ceilings and abundance of natural light flooding in through those enormous windows.  And then there's the furniture - it's always about the furniture.  The Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen always gets a big thumbs up from me, and its curves are a pleasing contrast to the almost saggy lines of the 'Mags Soft' sofa by HAY which, incidentally, is just screaming to be lounged/jumped on big time.  And what the sofa lacks in structured angles is more than made up for by the silhouettes of Poul Kjærholm's PK22 easy chairs.

Add to that the parquet flooring, whitewashed brickwork, moody kitchen and the gold racing bike, and yes, I could quite easily move in … on a fully-furnished bases, obvs.

  2. Hidden pull-out desks, file drawers and other organizers can be added to make the media wall units for living room system do double duty. Entertainment centers are also perfect for family movie nights. If curling up with popcorn and a pizza while you watch your favorite films from the comfort of your own family room or home is a tradition in your household — or if you'd like to make it one — Closet Works can help.
