Project N - furniture and lights

As promised, here are some images of some of the furniture and lights we bought for the living and dining areas.

The first items we bought (in early September) were our dining table and chairs. As I mentioned in my last post, we were still in our Scandinavian phase then. We knew we wanted a round table so the natural choice was the iconic Tulip table by Eero Saarinen. We bought the chairs from his Tulip range as well. I have loved this table for so long, and now we have it!

The table and chairs are taking three months to arrive in Singapore, they will be here end November/early December. Here's a photo of what they look like, except that we chose candy-colours for the chairs (two blue and two green). We chose white marble for the table top.

These are the lights we bought for the living room - the Kartell FL/Y designed by Ferruccio Laviani.

Not so many of course! They are gorgeous but they are huge! We bought three in three different colours and let me just say that it was a nightmare picking the colours.  They will be hung in the double height space in the living room.

For the dining area, we need a strong big light because we foresee that the dining table will frequently become a workzone. We decided on the Neutra light, also designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell. Although there are only two colours (black and white), we still agonised over which one to pick! Eventually we chose the white.

I mentioned in my last post that the Kartell lights are also taking their time to come home to us, but we hope that they'll be home in time for Christmas.
