editor’s note

Lines are important in our lives. From a young age we are taught to colour within the lines and to ‘toe the line’ in following instructions. Similarly, lines are important in design because they form the basis of our drawings and are a perpetual guide to layouts. Our lives are so closely connected to lines, that it becomes a comforting sight when we see lines coming together beautifully in architecture or interiors. There is a sense of reassurance one gets from looking at the simplicity of straight lines, which is also the reason why minimalist styles that focus on the use of lines never lose their popularity.

MOLL CHILDREN’S FURNITURE (FROM ERGOKID) DIMPLE ASWANI Mother of Aaron (five) and Angel (seven months) “As the kids grow older, ergonomic furniture is an essential element in their rooms to ensure they learn to study and sit in proper posture. When Aaron turned five, I bought him an adjustable study table and chair from moll, a Scandinavian brand specialising in furniture that grows with your child.” DECALS AND PATTERNED WALLPAPER (FROM CUCKOO) LOCK CHING YUEN Mother of Sean (four) and Caitlyn (two) “The right wallcovering is important because it sets the mood.
