The e Barza Excitement

14/04/2016

My lovelies, it’s been so long. Apologies for the radio silence around here – it’s been a very busy few weeks with lots of exciting projects on the horizon. You’ll be seeing more of that on the blog soon, but for now, I have something good to share.

I couldn’t contain my excitement when I spotted a new online furniture store, Ebarza a few weeks ago. Another stylish online option has arrived in Dubai and it’s looking like we may soon be spoiled for choice. Ebarza retails well-priced reproductions of classic pieces (the likes of Eames and Verner Panton), as well original contemporary styles, lighting, rugs and accessories – all conveniently delivered to your doorstep.

Below are some of my top picks from Ebarza.

The white wire chair is a classic mid-20th century modern replica chair and a right on-trend design piece. It’s clean and simple design is ideal for your dining room, kitchen or outside patio area. The wrought iron pendant lamps will enhance the decor in any room. With a taste of retro charm these lamps are ideal to hang above a breakfast nook table or at an entry foyer. They come in different shapes and sizes and are available in black or white coated powder metal.

One of my favourite pieces has to be the Bursa handmade rug. This rug is over-dyed, Turkish and a celebration of both the past and present. The original pattern of the rug can still be traced. These rugs are recycled by neutralising the original colour and then over-dyed with a new hue. A truly unique piece of contemporary art. Something different to the Bursa rug is the white natural sheepskin rug. It’s top quality as it is made from 100% natural sheepskin with a slight ivory tone. Perfect for throwing over a chair, using as a small rug or as a plush accessory piece in your little one’s room. Talking kids rooms – how gorgeous is the solid wood round stool? The cover is made from pure cotton and can be easily removed for cleaning. They are available in a variety of colours. I loved the grey cover contrasted against the natural wood legs.

If you would like to jazz up your dining room, the Jazz Dining Table is the perfect piece. It features a midcentury modern design made with solid walnut wood. The two hefty legs are each crafted of a single piece of heartwood that exposes the tree’s inner rings. Last but not least, feast your eyes on the Smile Lounge Chair. This piece is a replica from the mid-50s and is constructed of moulded wood and ash veneer. Finishing touches include a padded seat and back rest made from genuine leather. What’s not to love?

  • It's been a pretty slow weekend here. Hope yours has been chilled too?
  • On the blog this week, we are sharing some of our favourite digital art resources. During these times of restricted movement, it's more convenient than ever to be able to purchase artwork that can be downloaded, sent to print and frame via online framing specialists like @draftframes and delivered to your door. I'm all about the convenience factor here! Link in bio for some of our go-to's

  • I've been thinking about all the kids rooms we've designed and installed over the past few years, many of which had desks included. Unless they're kids in senior school, I usually view desks as a 'nice to have' addition if space allows. But I'm guessing those desks are getting a lot of mileage these days with Dubai schools continuing online learning until at least the end of the academic year. #crazytimes #stayhome #staysafe
  • A quiet afternoon was much needed to round off the weekend. Hope you all had a good one? Just peeking out on the left there is my new, improved @fronteriors Billy bookcase. More on that tomorrow.

  • She's been cursed with my coarse, wiry locks (that take 400 hrs to dry), if only I'd been blessed with that gorgeous colour. Suddenly wondering why I've never tried it. #hmm #maybe
  • I'm out of the house and in someone else's home and its feeling like a big adventure after so many weeks amidst the same walls. We are finally  starting to install the spaces we've designed for a family villa that we've been working on remotely for several weeks. Installation days are not what they used to be for us. This one is happening over a number of days. Fewer handymen and painters on site, masks, a safe distance and a whole lot of handwashing. Its feels strange but its definitely a step in the right direction.
  • The kitchen. It's always been the heart of the home, but over the past two months, it's been more of a command central in the home. All the cooking, baking, copious tea and coffee-making, school planning, live lesson participating, news watching (we have a TV room to the left), snack foraging.... you name it, it's been happening right here.

  • If you'd told me a few months ago that I'd spend 8 straight weeks within the confines of my home, leaving only a handful of times for essentials, I'd have laughed out loud. And that's coming from a real homebody. Life sure is unpredictable.
