Have a large open space either in your terrace garden or just by a window? If you’re a bibliophile, then you might have, perhaps, envisaged a contemplation chair for your library? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then take a nice close look at a rather unusual, innovative, grand and original luxury piece of furniture from the award winning Swiss-born designer Claudio D’amore, titled Kosha.

Kosha is a piece of sculpture that bridges the gap between art and design. Read the rest of this entry »

All this while, we have been bringing to you luxury furniture and furnishings for your baller living room, bedroom, bath, bar, kitchen, library and outdoors. Along the way, what unintentionally got neglected was your office space. We decided to look around a little bit for a product that combines luxury and ergonomics and here’s what we found – an ergonomically designed ultra comfortable luxury office desk called the Envelop Desk from the pioneer in ergonomic design – Herman Miller.
