Marco Zanuso

I found this beautiful velvet upholstered Marco Zanuso chair, being sold as a pair, on the website of Spanish company Pamono. They had a great selection on their website.  So a great place to look if you want to find already re-upholstered pieces.

Although never before being a fan of yellow, in interior design.  I have definitely started warming to this years strong, mustard tone.  After deciding on this colour, the next decision is choosing a Style.  Being torn between creating a striking contrast mood board or a more harmonious design – I really couldn’t decide. So, I thought, why not show you two very different ways that you could style your home.

Now on to my second mood board – I loved the idea of putting this vivid yellow against the stark contrast of a black and white Optical theme.  Immediately, designer Lee Broom sprang to mind.  With great lighting from his Optical collection and a Split mirror which matches perfectly.

The table has layers of white Carrara and Marquina marble and acid yellow tinted glass sandwiched together.  The veins of the marble appearing through the glass give an interesting effect.  I love the quirky martini glasses with their Carrara marble bases.

This Missoni cushion from Amara fits the theme perfectly.  With a side table from Davidson that had the right style compliment the design. The Bronson table has high gloss, white Lacquer tiers and slab legs in sycamore black.

What a great discovery at Houseology – this amazing rug!  Looks as if it’s just made for the mood board.  Jonathan Adler also has some striking accessories along the black and white theme.  This box is one of my favourites – but you are totally spoilt for choice with trays, coasters and other accessories in the Op Art collection.
