editor’s note

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination” said Henry David Thoreau. For artists, architects and interior designers alike, these words ring even truer today.

However, while there is an insatiable appetite for art and design, there is also a growing homogenisation of taste. Perpetuated by globalisation, social media and the commercialisation of craft, a home in Stockholm and Singapore could theoretically look the same.

In this issue of Singapore Tatler Homes, we highlight spaces teeming with creative…

As natural light is the source of life, natural life has been the inspiration for some of the most beautiful lighting pieces in the world. Whether it’s an elaborate chandelier sculpted like a blooming flower, an elegant pendant light shaped after a sea creature or a chic, minimalist wall sconce designed after a celestial phenomenon, these exceptional lighting pieces lend a touch of the great outdoors to your living spaces. ARTEMIDE CHLOROPHILIA Designed by Ross Lovegrove, Chlorophilia is an exquisite lighting piece that is more art installation than lamp. The lightweight suspension light consists of a central body that emits indirect light that is filtered and refracted by three clear, leaf-shaped surfaces arranged above it in a partially overlapping sunburst display. The effect is a stunningly scenic play of light that recalls the…
