1 ‘Murano meets Memphis’ would seem to sum up Nikolai Kotlarczyk’s ‘Scena’ carvedglass mirrors (from £1,550) for Portego. But while they’re made on the island famous for glassmaking, it turns out inspiration came from sources that pre-date the 1970s Italian design group by over 400 years: Palladio’s architecture.

NEW YORK: PLACES TO WRITE HOME ABOUT (by Polly Devlin; Pimpernel, rrp £40) In the preface to her book on chic Manhattan dwellings, Polly Devlin quotes John Updike: ‘The true New Yorker secretly believes that people living anywhere else have to be, in some sense, kidding.’ To affirm that singularity, there’s scarcely a painting of a mustachioed-guy-in-a-party-dress here, let alone a caged ceramic monkey on a tiger-skin piano shawl, that wouldn’t nonplus the natives of Wichita, Kansas, or Moosehead, Maine. I’m not kidding. It’s not about being eccentric. Or even rich. Rather (also in the preface but slightly rephrased), it’s about Lord Macaulay’s injunction that 22nd-century design geeks should know ‘how the parlours and chambers of our ancestors looked’. And yes, this well-chosen medley of living rooms and bedrooms snaps an…
