Great interiors have often relied on colliding contrasts, cultures and eras. Putting modern materials on traditional silhouettes, or contrasting different materials together, keeps an interior unique and edgy yet still enduring. A worn, vintage leather sofa can look great next to an industrial steel coffee table, or a rugged timber mirror next to a glamorous chandelier: natural against modern. It’s these contrasts that make an interior so much more interesting and adds layers to a space.
GET THE LOOK
The bold combination of glamorous lighting, industrial riveted metals and rich leather saturates this luxe and playful space with warmth and personality.
Create lived-in luxe with the Shabby sofa in rich, hand-distressed leather. Affectionately known as our ultimate sloucher, the Shabby comes in a wide range of configurations and finishes to suit any setting.
Belt up with the Aviator Blackhawk collection in riveted Spitfire metal. The rounded edges and unique drawer handles are reminiscent of the curved lines of the famous military helicopter, while the Spitfire finish undergoes a five-stage hand-finishing technique to create an impression of worn, distressed metal.
Add warmth with the Axel mirror and media unit in rugged reclaimed timber, salvaged from decommissioned fishing boats that once sailed the South China Sea. After decades of exposure to the elements, the timber reflects a unique weathered character, with each piece one of a kind.
Let sparks fly with the Light Wheel pendant in shimmering optical glass. Each glass prism is held by metal spokes to form the shape of a bicycle wheel. The glass is smoked on one side, hiding the lightbulb behind and creating a series of magical moments where the prisms seem to sparkle of their own accord.
Practice your poker face with our fun & playful Ace wall art. Inspired by old books, letters and bonds collected over years of travel, each Ace is an original design by Timothy Oulton’s in-house artist. The Aces complement the rest of our vintage playing card art.
