editor’s note

When it comes to style influences, the fashion world is closely linked to the realms of furniture and interior design. For one, runway looks and colour trends often become inspiration for industrial designers, who also draw ideas from the latest developments in leather and fabric production when creating new materials for their creations. Another example of this relationship: shortly after fashion labels such as Zara, Gucci and Louis Vuitton featured florals extensively in their Spring/Summer 2016 collections, floral prints became a common sight in soft furnishing and wallpaper designs. Then there’s celebrity furniture designer Christopher Guy, known for his patented Chris-X leg design seen throughout his collections, who cites the corseted waistline of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind as his inspiration.

WHAT The new BeoSound 1 and 2 wireless speakers by Danish audio visual specialist Bang & Olufsen (B&O) will blow you away with its suave design and technical prowess.

PRITI DEVI “Silver flatware and table ware are what I’d pass down. As generations move towards increasingly minimal interiors, silver flatware will continue to be a worthwhile investment and lend stately charm to any dinner table setting. My favourite is the Albany sterling silver flatware series by Arthur Price. Its classically elegant design is timeless and transcends generations.” OW PUI YEE “I believe a good hostess should own at least one set of fine bone china, so I’d give my daughter a set of chinaware. My parents gave me a dinner and tea set from Royal Albert’s Old Country Roses collection in the 1990s. Since then, I’ve been adding to the collection. I like this particular series as there’s even a Chinese dinner set. I’ll give this set to Carmen one day.” DOLLY CHEONG “Sculptures…
