Meet The Designer - Isabel Quiroga

  If I’m completely honest with you, today’s post nearly didn’t make it as a Meet The Designer one today.  You know when you discover something refreshingly new and innovative, and you find yourself thinking about it 24/7? That was and, still is me, from when I came across Isabel Quiroga’s Back-To-Basic Desk at the London Design Fair.  However, ALL of her designs captured my eye and imagination and I couldn’t let you miss out on this talented designer and…

ROCKING THE ROCKING CHAIR DESIGNS

10 Of The Best Versatile Outdoor-Indoor Furniture Pieces

Come rain or shine, (well ok mostly rain), here in the UK we are very much ALL about the weather. Whilst we may not have had the best of summers so far, I, like most of the population, live in hope that maybe, just maybe, we’ll get an Indian summer once the kids are back at school.
