Taking this time indoors to declutter and perhaps do a bit of redecorating? You’re definitely not alone, and perhaps you’ve been feeling like your current set-up could use a refresh. While we’re stuck indoors anyways, might as well have a nice room to look at, right? That first dinner party post-lockdown is going to be a memorable one, and it’ll be the perfect time to show off a new and improved living space. Go on and treat yourself! Here are some unique decorative items that’ll perk up the ol’ home office or living room.
This Tit for Tat candlestick holder by Anissa Kermiche (SG$225) is truly a work of art. She’s a sight to behold on any work desk or TV cabinet, and great to look at while you’re, oh, we don’t know, watching the newest episode of Iso.date? One thing’s for sure, you can’t say the marble sculpture doesn’t hold a candle to the female form. Because it does. And because it actually holds candles.
Italian label Marni Market is known for their vibrant, eclectic designs, and this Bird Cage flower vase (SG$205) is no different. If real plants aren’t your thing, this multicolored structure will be sure to bring some life into your home. It just screams springtime, with its loud, contrasting colors of mustard and yellow that’ll definitely add a pop of colour to any room.
Might as well hop on the bandwagon of using this time indoors to reorganize. Make Marie Kondo proud when you finally sort through that sky-high stack of magazines and newspapers. Display your favorite titles fashionably, with this Curva magazine holder by AYTM (SG$273). It’s a stylish way to keep that living room floor visible, but of course, the slinky-looking structure looks just as good without any magazines in it.
You won’t have to constantly remind family members to use a coaster with these babies. They’ll be reaching for these hand-painted works of art to get a better look at the intricate details of these enamel Gingko coasters by Shanghai Tang (SG$528). Featuring a Ginkgo tree pattern, these fashionable coasters are a luxurious addition to any tabletop, and any cup in your home would feel lucky seated on top of one.
At first glance, this dessert plate from Seletti (SG$93) looks like it’s been broken — and that’s only partially true. Before you start yelling about paying for a broken plate, it’s based on the Japanese art slash philosophy of Kintsugi, the act of fixing broken objects by fusing the broken bits with gold and boldly embracing flaws as part of the object. In this case, it’s 24 karat gold and porcelain, and it’ll make for quite the conversation starter (one about embracing wabi-sabi, no less) you need once guests can come over again.
