Editor, Grand Designs Magazine
As editor for one of UK's most popular architecture and interiors publications, Charlotte Luxford knows a thing or two about creating inspirational interiors. With this in mind, we asked her to choose a few of her favourite pieces from our contemporary collections of furniture and lighting to help spark your next project.
Nordic Tall Chest
“I couldn’t rate this product more highly, so much so that I recently purchased it myself. Despite the simple elegance, there’s a great attention to detail as shown by the the tonal timber mix, braided leather handles and soft-close drawers. Plus, it’s tall shape is ideal for compact spaces, which is one of the reasons I chose it for my own home.”
Real Good Chair
“I’ve always liked Blu Dot’s furniture and I’m not just a sucker for this chair because of its on-trend copper finish. What’s clever about it is that it’s actually a flat-pack piece that simply folds along the marked lines, creating a smart origami-style design. The burnished metal would sit well against a pared-back wooden table.”
40 Winks Sofa Bed
“When you’re lacking a guest bedroom like me, or you’ve only got a small box room to play with, a smart design like this is perfect. Often a sofa bed can feel like a compromise, but with its timeless looks and modern edge this Chesterfield-inspired piece would happily sit centre stage in a living room.”
IC T1 Table Lamp
“I’ve coveted this light by Flos ever since I saw it when it first launched. I love the ambient glow (bad lighting is one of my bugbears) and the way it appears to balance on its delicate brass frame – its got a sense of humour about it, which I like. Any designs by Michael Anastassiades are worth watching out for. ”
“Marble is undoubtedly the material of the moment, yet this fine china vase has classic appeal and an interesting back-story to match. It’s handmade using a unique marble glaze in the potteries of Stoke on Trent by sixth-generation ceramicist Carmen Lyngard. I think it’s a steal at £45, and a piece you’ll never fall out of love with.”
