Bunny Williams and a Top Tier Design Team Breathe Elegance into a Southampton Estate

Jun 26, 2018

The four-acre country estate belongs to New York commercial real-estate broker Mary Ann Tighe and her husband, Dr. David Hidalgo. The newly built home is affectionately named Hollyhock and was the result of a fruitful collaboration between Bunny Williams, architect Michel Dwyer, and landscape architect Quincy Hammond


The use of color throughout the house is precisely modulated. “You need to know when to stop so the rooms aren’t overdone,” says Williams. “You need to think of balance.” On the second floor, a cream-colored hall leads to the massive upstairs sitting room with bracing sunset-pink walls. Furnished with sofas upholstered in muted floral chintz and Williams’s trademark mix of well-bred antiques, space is cheerfully chic but not cloying.

Tirado Arquitectos completes timber-clad museum at colonial farm in Patagonia

Jun 25, 2018

The ridged roofline of this museum in Chile's Aysén Region references existing historic buildings on the site and creates a sequence of dramatic internal spaces with steeply sloping ceilings.

Santiago-based studio Tirado Arquitectos was commissioned by the regional government to develop a museum on the historically important site, where settlers established a sheep-farming community in the early 20th century.

The community grew into the city of Cohaique, which is now the capital of the Aysén Region and the gateway to some of Patagonia's most remote areas.

The historical significance of the site, and its remaining original buildings meant that an important focus of the project was the preservation and repurposing of these simple wood and stone structures.

Tom Fereday has designed the modern workspace desk

Jun 25, 2018

 Combining state of the art design with a 21st century practicality, Tom Fereday’s first collection for King Living tackles the demand of a modern workspace, to fantastic effect.

Branded as a feat of modern technology, it’s also, impressively, the first table in the world to merge interchangeable lighting and powerless charging within one sleek design.


Boasting integrated power, wireless charging and lighting all housed within a slick and minimalist aluminium frame, the ETO table may sound overly futuristic, but the natural timber top ensures a warm and tactile finish. Fitted with a discreet and slimline drawer unit to stow away anything you’d deem unsightly, the ETO table has a duality that will attract minimalist design lovers and technophiles alike.

“We talked a lot about developing products that aren’t just sophisticated and well made, but also actually trying to push the boundaries of furniture," says Fereday. This distinctly innovative approach is set to continue with the rest of the Tom Fereday for King Living ETO Range, and frankly, we can’t wait to see what’s next.

Hidden Mughal Treasure Discovered Near Humayun's Tomb In Delhi

Jun 23, 2018

Conservators have made a stunning discovery on the domed ceiling of the 16th-century Sabz Burj, a Mughal monument near Humayun's tomb: hidden paintings in blue, yellow, red and white, and some even in gold.

It seems much of the painting was lost due to seepage of rainwater and efforts are under way to ensure it never recurs. Portions of the plastered surface have also fallen away due to structural movement in the building,” said an official.

National and international experts have been roped in by the AKTC-Havells team to advise on methods to remove later layers and surface coating. “Further analysis of the painted pigments will be undertaken before formulating a conservation strategy for the painted ceiling,” an official said. 
The project is supported by appliance major Havells as part of its CSR activity.
