Global style really suits British homes. We’ve always been cultural magpies, decorating our homes with elements from many different countries. Done well, the Global look provides a visual feast. Done less well, the look can tip over the edge from a stylish assembly into clutter.
A good tip for getting the look right is to begin at a fairly low level – with a few ‘hero’ pieces and a strong colour theme. From that point, you can start to experiment with layering in other decorative elements, from rugs and pictures to smaller artefacts, until you reach a perfect pitch.
Finished in vibrant red and black lacquer, our Taipei Bed is the perfect cross-cultural hero piece for a global bedroom. Inspired by the colours and shapes of antique Chinese furniture, it’s an Oriental take on the traditional French boat bed. Creating an imposing centrepiece, it begs to be surrounded with carefully curated modern and vintage pieces to build up a room which speaks of a life well-travelled.
Hand made from sustainable mahogany, the Taipei can also be custom-finished in any colour and is available in a range of sizes.
