The Extraordinary Creations of Scarlet Splendour

For some people less may be more, but for others too much minimalism makes you a dull boy.  Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia, the Kolkata-based founders of Scarlet Splendour, are clearly believers of the latter. 

The unapologetically maximalist collections of Scarlet Splendour are a feast for the eyes, combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design sensibilities and a generous dose of exoticism.  We particularly like 88 Secrets, the elegant and super feminine collection of cabinets, chair, table and rug by Nika Zupanc, with their voluptuous curves, soft shades of peach and jade, embellished with her trademark bow motif.  Matteo Cibic's Vanilla Noir collection packs a strong visual punch with his use of pattern and colour, whilst his Lotus Sanctum cabinet is a fun and exuberant cabinet in a satisfyingly over-the-top palette of candy pink and burnished brass.   Other standout designs include the Luce Naga lights with their sinuously organic forms and the Fools' Gold collection of "dripping" tables and chairs.  Unabashedly decadent, indulgently luxurious and utterly irresistible.

The new collections of Scarlet Splendour were showcased at the Galleria Rossana Orlandi during Milan Design Week.

Go for lighting with quietly exuberant shapes, such as the Mini Mikado suspension light from LZF, the Blossoms floor light from Blackbody and the Twee T. suspension light from Casamania.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
