London to LA

Posted by

Earlier this month, we reported that our new collections photoshoot had finished. This week, it was time to dismantle our custom-built set for storage off site – ready for its next exciting outing!

We gave the furniture and lighting pieces one final inspection before it was all hands on deck to get the crates out of the studio and onto the truck – the first step on their journey to America. The next time we see them will be for their grand launch in Janet Yonaty’s showroom at LCDQ Festival in Los Angeles, after which we’ll be able to share pictures of the pieces!

Abu Dhabi Visit

Luigi, Umberto, Stefania and Wendy have just returned from the Middle East, where they inspected the site of our Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Court project.

Started in 2013, we’re delighted to announce this highly-specialised commissioning is in the final stages, and we can’t wait to unveil the project to the Crown Prince.

It’s A Wrap – Maritime & Verandah Photoshoot Complete

Posted by

We’re delighted to have successfully photographed our two new furniture and lighting collections! We received the pieces of the Maritime and Verandah collections here in London earlier this month, and the first challenge was getting them into the studio – the only drawback of using quality materials is the weight!

Once the pieces were safely into position, the three-day shoot went perfectly, thanks in part to photographer Andreas von Einsiedel and product designer Umberto Aloi.

A dark burgundy was chosen for the backdrop to compliment the rich, dark Rosewood of the Maritime pieces, while we opted for something lighter to highlight the bronze bamboo and eglomise glass of the Verandah collection.

After that, it was a quick chance of scenery; the set received a few coats of brilliant white paint in preparation for product shots requested by the interior design magazines looking to feature our collections.

The photoshoot wrapped up, the pieces still looked immaculate as they were repacked by our logistics company – especially compared to our tired bodies leaving the studio!

This week we’ll give them one final inspection before they leave for the United States, and next time we see them will be in sunny Los Angeles, ready for the LCDQ Festival!

Our trip, as well as our other news, will be covered on our social media platforms: follow us on LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest for updates.

The Verandah Collection

Posted by

In preparation of the launch of our Verandah furniture and lighting collection, we commissioned this magnificent CGI containing all of the pieces. Cast pieces feature bronze bamboo frames with both eglomise and bevelled glass. The upholstery casing is solid wood, upholstered in parchment, leather or fabric, with feet of cast bronze.

We can’t wait to launch this and our Maritime Collection in Los Angeles in May 2017, where they will be presented in Janet Yonaty’s Melrose Avenue showroom as part of the LCDQ: Legends festival.

Both collections are being photographed at our London office this month, so look out for the photoshoot review very soon!
