We love splashes of chartreuse right now. Like a slice of lime in a cool drink, shots of vibrant acid chartreuse bring a bit of zing into a neutral space. We think it looks equally smart mixed in amongst earthy charcoals & greys or living alongside vibrant pinks.

Orson & Blake introduces treasures from the Rajasthan desert. The store is filled with beautiful soulful objects & furniture in raw, natural, earthy tones. Our favourites are the sculptural side tables, pretty white washed mirrors, inlaid occasional tables, artisan carved bowls & trays, kooky iron chairs & wonderful hand-knotted rope vintage dining chairs.
We love this postcard because the front is so cheeky yet the message on the back talks about the weather.
“Dear Mr. Eidmans,
Many thanks for p.c, glad you are having ripping weather. This is ideal walking weather I should think. I’ve charmed the weather for the rest of your stay.
Yours, C.E. Davison”
Chandeliers is the first fabric design created by Sharyn Storrier Lyneham for EDIT. The print originated from a passion for over the top chandeliers in vast spaces. When designing this fabric, she wanted to create an ad hoc layout to mirror that of a photo album. When the large version of chandeliers is applied to furniture, the images become wonderfully abstract. Chandeliers remains a popular print with our customers and designers.

EDIT has always loved Dries Van Noten’s brave take on pattern and mixed design that all magically come together. Gert Voorjans’ work shows us how wit and irreverence can work so wonderfully in interiors.
“A designer is like a sponge. Just living, over the years, you see pictures, you watch movies, you read books, you see people walking on the street, you see different countries while traveling. This is all water you keep inside of you and when you design you simply squeeze the sponge. Whatever comes out is a kind of melange, a mixture of impressions you’ve acquired over the years.” – Dries Van Noten

“I like strange objects, excessive proportions, monstrosities too. You shouldn’t take interior design too seriously.” – Gert Voorjans
Gert Voorjans is a Belgian interior architect and decorator, and the creative force behind Dries Van Noten’s flagship stores. His eclectic style complements Van Noten’s collections to create unique retail experiences.
His book Interior Life beautifully documents his body of work.
Catalonian artist Joan Miró created works in a magical childlike style. We adore his process of transforming pieces of discarded timber and rock into fantastical sculptures decorated with dreamy animal like imagery, moons and stars. The Joan Miró Foundation is a great source of inspiration and one of our favourite museums to visit when in Barcelona.
