Grab Hold of Foscarini’s Tobia Lamp

Italian designer Ferruccio Laviani is the mind behind the clever Tobia lamp created for Foscarini, a minimal and geometric light source with a standout statement “handlebar” that invites you to grab hold. Tobia’s eye-catching focal point can be used to easily move the slender, compact floor lamp version around, inviting you to be a nomad in your own space.

Farm-to-Tableware: Grass-Fed Bone China by Gregg Moore

The fireplace is framed by bespoke arched concrete and terracotta handmade specifically for the project by
