With a philosophy reflected in the origin of its name, Belgium-based design & production house Sempre (meaning ‘forever’) creates products that are handmade of natural and reclaimed materials, with an aesthetic that finds beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature.
The cycle of life is reflected both in the materials that are used for the collections, and in the purposeful irregularity of finish – the cracks and crevices and all other marks that time, weather and use leave behind – capturing the soul of nature in its purest, unrefined form.
Dôme Deco challenges the conventional boundaries
of interior design with a unique and penetrating vision.
A Belgian company with a very diverse, international focus, their collections straddle contrasting extremes in both form and content, sparking an engaged dialogue with any interior. Harsh, raw elements, for example, are combined with a refined sense of elegance… soft features are lent a rough, hardened edge… warm, natural materials are contrasted with sleek, clean lines… a vision that encapsulates the diversity of a globalized and ever-changing world – cosmopolitan, conceptual, contemporary.

Pure Indulgence in Scented Soy
Kearose is a boutique, eco-friendly fragrance collection
for lovers of luxury and opulent style.
Kearose wax is 100% soy – the soybeans originate from specialist soy farms
in the USA. It is then made into soy flakes and shipped to New Zealand
directly from the source in America. Kearose candles are triple scented
(signifying the amount of oil used in each candle) with exquisite and
unique fragrance oils sourced from around the globe. Soy wax has a
threshold of how much oil it can hold before it won’t set. Kearose candles
hold the maximum amount of fragrance oil that is possible.
Kearose's fragrance oils have been carefully created and curated from
a variety of perfumeries they work with abroad. Many of the come from
Grasse, France, New Jersey, USA, Melbourne Australia, along with
locally sourced oils from New Zealand. The oils are all natural.
No nasty thylates or sulphates.
Every candle is hand poured, boxed and finished
at Kearose's studio in Wanganui, New Zealand.
Founded by Stacey Jones, Kearose came to life in Sydney, Australia
where Stacey (upon visiting her home country of NZ) realised there was
a niche in the market there for a high end home fragrance brand.
With a background in Photography and Graphic Design she travelled
abroad to get to work with various perfumeries and over a
two year period experimented and perfected the craft.
When not hunting down the perfect oils for her exquisite home fragrances,
Stacey can be found in Wanganui, living with her husband and
two sausage dogs in their 100 year old restored Villa.
Made since 1920 in Bevano, a small town on the shores of
Lake Maggiore in Northern Italy, Italo Ottinetti produces a range of
cookware and bakeware for the professional chef and the home cook.
Unique and stylish, Ottinetti Cookware combines the optimal
cooking properties of aluminium with the beauty of brass. It sits alone
in the market as a traditional, handcrafted product designed to last.
The aluminium used is greater than 99% pure, ensuring it is entirely safe
for use with food, and it meets the EU standards EN 601 & EN602.
Lighter in weight than other traditional materials such as cast iron,
aluminium is the best conductor of heat after copper but considerably
less expensive than copper. This means it heats up fast and
cools down quickly giving the cook great control.
Ottinetti can be used on the stove top or in the oven.
ABOUT ALUMINIUM COOKWARE
Aluminium is the best conductor of heat next to copper, but more cost effective. Ottinetti aluminium cookware is certified 99.5% pure which means it is
completely safe to cook in. However it is not recommended to store acidic foods, such as tomato based dishes, in these pans for any period of time.
This can cause the surface of the pan to pit.
DEBUNKING THE ALZHEIMERS MYTH
From the Alzheimers Association of America: “During the 1960s and 1970s, aluminium emerged as a possible suspect in Alzheimer’s. This suspicion led to concern about exposure to aluminium through everyday sources such as pots and pans, beverage cans, antacids and antiperspirants. Since then, studies have failed to confirm any role for aluminium in causing Alzheimer’s.”

a carefully created line of skin care and interior scents for men.

interior scents, body creams and cleansers.
The products are created in low-volume batches, individually made
by hand, and share a basis of quality, naturally-derived ingredients
with discerning scent and archival influence.

– Prospector Co. see their products as food for the face and body,
so they should be as discriminating as the food we eat.

UNITED BY DESIGN
Founded in 1950, Swiss company Vitra is a producer,
curator, and champion of design.
With a focus on functional and inspiring interiors, furniture and accessories,
Vitra is at the forefront of design, while retaining a long-term view – longevity
of materials, construction and aesthetics is their leading principle (with many
designs in continuous production since the 1950s). Vitra is also actively
involved in the cultural placement & documentation of design, through
the Vitra Campus, Vitra Design Museum and other initiatives.
Vitra’s strength lies in the partnerships it has built with renowned design
organisations such as Eames, Artek (a brand also at Corso de’ Fiori)
and Jasper Morrison (view his stylish HAL Wood chairs).
Whether creating furniture design icons, pieces of functional beauty,
or objects of collectable whimsy, Vitra is a company with
unique collections and a bold vision united by design.
Traditional Moroccan throws.
Combining his love for illustration, product and graphic design,
along with over 25 years as an industrial designer, Paul Ocepek
now creates layered, lightweight clocks from a host of
playful characters, under his Modern Moose brand.
Paul makes each Modern Moose clock in his Norfolk, Massachusetts
(or as he likes to call it, Moosachusetts) studio. He uses birch plywood and
nontoxic water-based inks (no glues or chemical coatings); then cuts, sands
and assembles the pieces by hand, to create his layered compositions.
Paulʼs sense of humor, bold use of color and modern
artistic sensibility form the basis for these whimsical time-pieces
- an eye-catching addition to any wall or table.

SKT Ceramics was founded by Brooklyn artist
Susannah Tisue in 2006, during her three year artist residency
at Greenwich House Pottery in Manhattan’s West Village.
The SKT studio, now in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, produces Susannah’s
line of wheel thrown, high fired porcelain wares. Each piece merges
Susannah’s love of painting, printmaking, and the transformative
process of firing. The pieces are crafted on the thick side – taking the
durability of porcelain and creating sturdy, rustic wares with a refined sensibility.
Images are screen printed or hand-painted from Susannah Tisue’s original
illustrations. Each screen printed image is initially silkscreened with colored clay
on Japanese rice paper, then transferred to the freshly trimmed pottery.
Each one-of-a-kind piece reflects the detailed process used to make it
and is designed to bring delight to your home and table for years to come.
Founded by Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli in 1996,
Astier de Villatte brings us a unique take on ceramics, candles, perfumes
and paper goods. All of their products are created in a Bastille workshop
that used to house Napolean's silversmith.
Crafted from black terracotta clay, their beautiful handmade ceramics use a special technique which leaves deliberate imperfections on the surface so each piece is unique. The team is made up of 20 ceramicists - using the pottery technique that Benoit’s father taught him. Ceramic design collections include collaborations with international artisans (such as New York based design houses, ceramicist John Derian and designers Patch NYC).
Their range of heady scented candles capture the spirit of cities that have inspired the design team.
The gift of a lifetime, for a lifetime – for yourself or another.
The idea of offering the best that will last a lifetime inspired the creation of the Malle W. Trousseau. The elegant, modern trunk houses a selection of only the finest utensils, essential for enjoyable cooking: designed to be used, please the eye, and last through countless meals.
Three trays hold objects for cutting, cooking and containing: all chosen because they are well thought-out, well designed and well made, by artisans with a genuine savoir-faire and love of their craft.
The last word in housewarming or wedding gifts – and an opportunity for friends or family to give a lifetime of memorable meals and sparkling entertaining.

Tradition, heritage & creation have crafted the remarkable reputation of this family firm
Artcopi is a family run business, established in 1973 in Cholet, near Nantes. It specialises in hand crafting beautiful furniture, inspired by the major styles of French cabinet making – Directoire, Empire, Louis Philippe and Louis XV. Artcopi artisans select their own timber from healthy, mature tree stocks of cherry wood and solid oak from France. Stringent quality control processes ensure that every piece is exceptional, from conception to completion.
Each piece is cut, assembled, polished and waxed to give the lovely warm charm of old furniture. Pieces are manufactured in France by traditional cabinet making techniques like tenon and mortice, dovetailing and the use of wooden pegs, before being hand finished for authenticity and unique beauty.
Fine sanding reveals the timber’s natural beauty, water based, solvent-free stains highlight the grain, while gum lacquer added to natural beeswax creates a sheen that deepens in beauty with age and use.

Original, organic glassware that reflects its elemental nature

The company is still a real family business, with its members handling everything from administration to textile design.

Scents reminiscent of childhood

Through the vision and determination of matriarch Josephine, the business expanded its range from lavender essential oil to include lavender sachets, soaps and toilet waters. In 1987, Josephine's grandchildren, Dominique and Denis Vogade re-launched the family business. Inspired by the work of French filmmaker Marcel Pagnol’s ability to express the fragrance of a flower through words, they called their company Lothantique.The range is formulated with natural ingredients; by applying the traditional processes of Haute-Provence to advances in skincare technology.
The development of each product takes approximately two years with the selection of perfume being one of the main steps. A commitment to preserving the environment means using recycled and biodegradable materials wherever possible.
