Interior Wish List 2018
The thing is.. apart from what you really need to buy, there are lots of stuff you want to have, but when you think about it, you don’t really need it, but you just want to collect or buy for great pleasure. You cannot always buy practical furniture and accessories!
For many reasons, I thought if I make a wish list that has some possibility of actualization and stare at it, it is more likely to come into my arms one day.
1. Safari Daybed
by Ole Gjerløv-Knudsen
Daybed is the furniture that gives me comfort even by hearing the name of it. It makes me feel like leaving it by a sunny window and get in the mood for utmost relaxation.
I’ve always had the desire to have PK 80 or Barcelona Daybed, but the costly price made it hard to just purchase them. But this time, a decent priced product caught my eye. It is Safari Daybed! This product was first launched in 1962 by Ole Gjerløv-Knudsen for his son's camping bed. Since it is made for camping, the bed is easy to assemble and move around, and no special tools or any screws are required.
The minimal design, naturalness of linen and the wood seem to be enough for it to become a statement item. It is clearly a versatile item that can be used as a lounge chair by a window, a bench on a porch, a sofa in a living room, or a guest bed of the size of 80cm x 2m. In addition to that, I think it’s attractive that it can be used as a hammock or chair outdoors like its original purpose.
by Apparatus Studio
To tell the truth, this product being on my wish list is because of my fandom for Apparatus Studio. They have the gorgeous lamp design, and I want to use their product someday, but I guess I could start off with getting this beautiful censer. The original use of it is an incense burner, but the finishing material is so luxurious and beautifully shaped that you can use it as an interior object, flower vase or fruit bowl like in the picture below. Isn’t that nice?
3. CH88 Chair
by Hans Wegner
This chair might be required to buy soon, so it may come into my arms faster than I think. I’m doing a home makeover this time and need to choose chairs for the dining table. So with the assumption that I’m going to purchase two CH88 chairs, I bought two other chairs that can fit well with them. What I liked most about this chair was that I needed furniture with thin and fine lines contrary to my current bulky ones. You can choose from various options for the finishing of the seat plate, metal frame, and backrest plate. It would be nice to actually see various combinations in person at the shop.
4. Korean Lacquered Tray
by Myoung-wook Huh
I’m not very fond of primary colors, but when it comes to the beautiful Korean traditional lacquer craft technique, the story changes. It is a classic natural paint made from collected sap flowing down the lacquer trunk, and when layered several times on various materials such as wood, metal, and Korean paper, it gives subtle luster and colors that come out from deep within.
Recently, many Korean artists have been reinterpreting Korean lacquer with a modern sense, and my favorite artwork is that of Myoung-wook Huh. It requires a long time to make this unique aesthetic by repeatedly lacquering, scrubbing with sandpaper, and repainting to bring about the intended color and natural texture, making it very costly. However, I think it is worth the price considering the longer you use it, the deeper the color and the durability build up, making it usable for a thousand years.
The first thing I want is to get a tray that will make the table scene look great.
5. Acton Bluetooth Speaker
Although there is a Bluetooth speaker with modern design that I use very well, the ones with classic design seem to have a different appeal. The vintage details are also beautiful, but I am curious to be able to customize the sounds by adjusting the bass, treble, and volume, respectively by turning small analog knobs of the brass sound control panel.
