Last week we were thrilled to see the unveiling of the new range of beautiful objet for the home that has us inspired to rearrange our own collected treasures on the coffee table and introduce some new blood to the game. StillLife by Chelsea Hing and Emma Barnett is an exclusive range of 15 limited edition pieces, designed in collaboration with three emerging Australian makers, Thread Architecture, Andrei Davidoff, and Brahman Perera.
The brainchild of Melbourne based interior designer Chelsea Hing and stylist Emma Barnett, StillLife was born from a strong passion to nurture the collaboration between designer and artisan.
“Emma and I saw an opportunity to create a collection that would enable clients to simply ‘shop the look’, purchasing a pre-styled collection of pieces to instantly transform their coffee table, entrance hall or mantel into a magazine-worthy styled vignette” explains Chelsea. And if trying to decide what pieces to buy to go together is a struggle for you, then you will be happy to see that you can buy ‘the look’.
There. Decision made.
For our money we fell just a little bit hard for both the man and his work when we met Brahman Perera. While he is definitely a character we want to know more about, we were quick to find a designated space for his yarn wrapped angular sculptures.
Be quick and take a look at StillLife is our only warning!
