Whenever January ends, I expect spring to be right around the corner. Halfway into February, I realise begrudgingly that we have a few months yet of grey skies, polar vortexes and nights wrapped in a pj-duvet-cashmere blanket trifecta, just to stay warm. So to distract me, I tend to do one of two things: plan our holidays for the year, or hunt around for the latest and greatest in drool-worthy interiors. The other night my little search stumbled into LuxDeco.com – one of the best high-end online home retailers I’ve seen in a long while. Not only do they feature the creme-de-la-creme of luxury interior brands (Designers Guild, Christian Lacroix, Selva, Missoni – the list goes on, and on); they also offer style advice, an online magazine with original editorial content, a sourcing service, and a facility for ordering bespoke items. This is a true all-in-one service.
If you know exactly what you’re looking for, you can browse by furniture. If you’re trying to re-design an entire room, or simply have a style in mind that you want to try out, search by their carefully curated collections. Finally, if you want to stay ahead of the trend you can browse through the panel of taste-makers and shop their personal picks. My personal investment pieces? (Not all in the same room, of course)
The Nanimarquina Manuscript Rug, because I’m a sucker for amazing typography and monochrome color palettes
The Stuart Scott Saddle Up Armchair with gorgeous detailing, rich wood, a perfectly masculine frame, and decadent butter-soft leather
Any and all of Margo Selby’s bright, tactile cushions, carefully mixed in with a few Missoni cushions or a throw
And last but not least, a Cub-ar Zevart Brandy Balloon glass – which I adore for the mysterious smoky color, the amazing shape and the swirl of inky detailing dancing through it.
If you’re ever looking for that amazing piece to add to your home, or just some gorgeous inspiration I would start my hunt here. To see more, head to www.luxdeco.com
