Michael Cusack’s canvases from his latest exhibition ‘Axiom‘ are like abstract parties, forms filled with personality in intimate gatherings or independent – a tension in their distance, shy, or indifferent to one another.

Playful yet considered they have that simple balance that is so hard to achieve. Using mixed mediums he layers, scratches, scuffs and reworks until their warmth and textural qualities are harmonious. You can easily imagine how his palette of deep colours, charcoal and neutral pastels could influence an interior.

Although he now lives in Byron Bay we feel that his Irish upbringing had swayed him towards these moody earthl tones.

If you want to feast your eyes in person and draw your own conclusions be sure to visit Martin Browne Contemporary before 27th April.

Rich, honest, hardworking slabs of beauty! Nothing compares to the intricate details of history that are marble’s characteristics. Whether you’re Patricia Urquiola collaborating with Budri (Earthquake 5.9 – a whole other story!) on an elaborate exhibition or e15’s Enoki side table, marble resonates with something in the depth of our being.

It’s the way that light plays with stone that dazzles and puts it into the precious category, it’s the fault lines that are taken from this earth a huge rock in itself and then designed, crafted and delivered into your modern world that is wonderful. Classic and timeless, next time you use your benchtop or step into an ornate foyer marvel at its exquisite uniqueness.

It is, was and always will be hot property as it can lift the mundane to heavenly. We constantly look forward to visiting our marble suppliers to choose slabs for our clients, perks of the job, what a treat!

The Anglepoise lamp is a true icon of British design. Since 1932 the Anglepoise has sat on the desks of writers such as Roald Dahl, been seen on the big screen as a character in Pixar’s Toy Story, in the pages of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach and dancing in a Peter Gabriel video clip for 1982′s Shock the Monkey. It is a vision of a perfectly balanced mechanism with a beautifully engaging kinetic form.

It’s a brand new aesthetic for the Original 1227 Anglepoise but it isn’t at all at odds with the sense of nostalgia of the fitting which will be available later this year in muted heritage inspired tones of Elephant Grey, Deep Slate and Dusty Blue. The woven cord and brass details recall the original release of the lamp and seen here sitting alongside pieces from British furniture houses Another Country, Bethan Gray and Ercol it isn’t hard to see the pure timelessness of the Anglepoise.

Today we look back to the Harbour House, an Arent&Pyke project from some years ago. We like to feature our projects on In/Out not only to showcase our work but because they are often used as a reference point for exciting new projects.

The Harbour House has an exceptional view and although the harbour panoramas are irresistible, there is an inward focus – on the family being together and enjoying their home. The vast open spaces were celebrated with a sophisticated contemporary palette for the clients to enjoy dining, living, relaxing, entertaining and resting.

From the outset, the clients had a vivid image of the way they wanted to experience their new home and the landscape around it. Our intention was to bring light, sophisticated softness and warmth to the house despite the largely neutral decorative palette. The spaces are open, calm and soft and the furnishings refined. Key pieces from French furniture house Christian Liaigre are complimented by crisp white Minotti sofas and iconic pieces, such as the Taccia lamp from Flos make this interior timelessly elegant.

Gotta love a fusion of style and culture. Stella Jean, born in Rome of Caribbean descent has once again delivered. We first featured Jean in the early days of In/Out where her collection of layered tribal printed swimwear was certainly at the forefront of the retro-revival seen in swimwear this summer.

Having just presented her Fall collection in Milan, Jean is back on the radar. Her Spring Summer 2014 collection of classic Italian seaside silhouettes pack a punch like no other with Jean’s layered more-is-more African wax prints. With the addition this season of varying scaled stripes, and oversized fruit and flower motifs, this collection is once again executed with a dramatic silhouette of nostalgia.
