This apartment is like an exhibition hall, full of artworks from all over the world, highlighting her journeys from around the world. We avoided using industrialized and standardized products, instead each piece of furniture is chosen on its sculptural and emotional merit. The La Cividina geometry cutting armchair, Alexander Lamout lotus candle holder, tall handcrafted cabinet, and the sand cast octopus handle, all traditional exhibit craftsmanship from ages to ages.

“A gust of autumn wind blew on the river, and flowers by the river bank are falling under the sunset.” The south dining room faces to the river and connects to the living room, western kitchen and Chinese kitchen.

The Boxing Room draws its inspiration from a 1930’s gentlemen’s boxing club. A visually stunning black and white wallpaper are balanced by dark leather detailing and a full-length mirror. The design is finished by the addition of the workout stereo shaped like a British bulldog, a humorous nod to the fighter in all of us.

The dark wooden spiral staircase is the focal point of entrance and bridges the lobby to the living room. Its smooth arc echoes the architectural structure and conveys a quiet and elegant environment. Below is a handblown Ripple lamp, which slowly turns, projecting waves of light on the underside of the stair. Light and shadow fold over one another, reminding us of light reflected off the waves gently lapping against the shore.

The study room is a space that can be used for private study, or for meeting clients. The simple Menu sofa is vivid and beautiful, and its delicate wood structure and elegant modern modeling make it look like a very light artwork. Paired with a metal and marble floor lamp, they form a clever composition.

Space is modern and graceful with a simple and elegant tone, and the natural embellishment makes each object full of artistic taste. Furniture and artworks from different countries and brands are ingeniously combined here and create a freely writing style in the space. The tall Ocean Armoire cabinet by Alexander Lamont was inspired by the light beneath the ocean. The octopus handle, hinge, and bronze feet were specially handcrafted by craftsmen in Thailand. It is finished in a unique parchment. When the craftsman works the lacquer, his time and mind are left as marks across its surface. With tenderness, the wrinkled hands add a touch of exquisiteness and warmth into the tall cabinet that is full of a primitive vitality.  Design Company: More Design Office; Designer:Jaycee Chui, Justin Bridgland; Photographer: Guangying Photograph
