Desirable Designs – July 2019
The five continents
The summer holidays are here, which means it’s time for some globetrotting. Pack your bags and book your flight because the planet is waiting to be explored. However, if you don’t have any time to travel this summer, these international interior guests will let you roam the continents. 100 per cent jetlag-free!
Left to right: African mask from by &Klevering | The Dutch Design Chair
This beautifully crafted African mask will take your mind on a journey through the savannah. Each one is uniquely designed and carved by hand, making them very high in demand right now. Laying your hands upon one of them can, therefore, be quite the challenge.
Nothing screams summer more than Portugal’s colourful ‘azulejos’. The Dutch Design Chair brings these trendy tiles to your living room in the shape of a cardboard seat. It can hold up to 200 kilogrammes and comes in a multitude of funky prints. No wonder The New York Times called it a “standout creation”.

While Native Americans liked them because they kept nightmares away, we like them because they look fabulous. These dreamcatchers are handmade in a Belgian, ethical atelier in Bali, supporting its workers to create a better life for their families. This fair-trade eye-catcher will, therefore, let you sleep soundly.
