douglas + bec for kate sylvester

Kate Sylvester is well-known for her attention to detail, for wonderful use of colour and most of all for the clever simplicity of her garments.  Rebecca Snelling of Douglas + Bec is also known for the same – but in design of well-crafted pieces of furniture. The fact that these two have come together should not have surprised us at all – we should be more surprised that it hasn’t happened sooner!  Thursday night saw the launch of collaboration between the two, and we got a chance  to see the entire collection. The result is beautifully turned lamps in two styles, a chair in two colour/fabrics, a stool that can also be a bedside table, a coffee table, a leather framed mirror,as well as both a table and a floor lamp. With the use of brass/gold fittings, red woven flex, blush leather, and linen in two shades of blush pink and duck egg blue with plenty of wood to ground it all – it is a cohesive and beautiful collection.  I love all the little details – the simple turned ring around the All Oak Turned Lamp ($1448) – with the Duck Egg Blue Linen shade and red flex cord on all the lamps.  Both the Angle Floor Lamp 2.0 ($1285) and the Angle Table Lamp 2.0 ($720) are shapes we have seen from Douglas + Bec before (I adore the Angle Table Lamp 2.0 in Yellow) but in the Oyster spun metal they have a sleeker look to them.  All the pieces have a strong practical feel to them – both beautiful and practical. They should be used on a daily basis.  They are available on-line and in-store now, at both Douglas + Bec and Kate Sylvester.
