With a number of classic Italian design house Cassina’s signature pieces now available at Lane Crawford and at the firm’s flagship showroom in Central opened last year, it’s more accessible than ever if you’ve ever been hunting a mid-century modern masterpiece for your home. We’re particularly obsessed with the timeless appeal of certain pieces, such as how the sweet robin’s egg hue of these Mexique low-level tables — first created between 1938 and 1939 — stand out in a room of warm neutrals. It’s also available in coral, tan and black, as well as matte or gloss finish. A stylish trick to borrow, for sure.

Not your Nonna’s Florals
“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” Miranda Priestley a la Meryl Streep famously quipped in 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada. But this stunning new motif by storied wallpaper house De Gournay is nothing cliché — and possibly just the thing to revitalise a staid wall or room (provided your furnishings aren’t already too busy, that is). This new design has been two years in the works as a collaborative effort between De Gournay and UK Fashion designer Erdem Moralioğlu, who has made a series of dresses with the same print. The hand painted wall motif features spring in full bloom with florals and birds in dynamic composition. It’s available on four design colourways on four dyed silk grounds: ‘Imperial Yellow’, ‘Golden Yellow’, ‘Adam Grey’, and the new ‘Kelly Green’.

The Greater Gatsby
Velvet upholstery, while popularised in the autumn/winter seasons of late in lush jewel tones, is fresh again for the spring season when you play around with geometric-cut patterns and exuberant tones. This mesmerising collection of textiles by Jim Thompson pays homage to the Jazz Age (hence its name), and is perfect for everything in the room that you want to make pop: from headboards to throw cushions. It is the 20s, after all.
