Chloe's top 5 things she loves at the moment

Favourite Ceramist – Morgane Pasqualini Céramique

I first discovered Morgane’s pieces scrolling through Instagram and I instantaneously fell in love with her work. Her pieces are mainly inspired by antique ceramic and nature. What makes her work really unique is the way she designs those fine and intricate handles paired with typical antique vessel shapes. The result gives a really aerial feel to each piece.

Favourite Summer Destination – Manarola, Italy

Manarola is a small village on the Mediterranean coast of Italy. It is one of five UNESCO World Heritage towns called Cinque Terre. I visited that place in the summer a few years ago. The narrow pedestrian streets and colourful houses are really unique to this area. Each town is connected by train but I decided to take the hillside trail which provides breathtaking views of the coast and towns.

Favourite Museum – Musée D’Orsay, France

What makes this museum unique and why it’s one of my favourites is the architecture and history behind its building. Built in the late 19th century, it used to be a railway station. It was then converted to a museum and now holds a large collection of artwork from that time. One of the main exhibition rooms is called the Gallerie which used to be the great hall of the station with its large curved glass and metal ceiling typical of the Beaux-Arts architecture. My favourite painting there is Starry Nights Over the Rhone by Van Gogh. The depth of colour used in that painting has always fascinated me.

Favourite Wallpaper – de Gournay

My first introduction to de Gournay wallpapers was in London when I first started as an Interior Designer. Their wallpapers are hand-painted on dyed silk by Chinese artisans using centuries old techniques which makes each panel unique. I have always been impressed with the details and uniqueness of their wallpaper going from traditional chinoiserie to more contemporary designs.

Favourite Light Fixture – Akari E, Isamu Noguchi

The Akari E ceiling light has always been one of my favourite light fixtures. First designed by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi in 1951, its been re-edited by Vitra. Each light is handcrafted by Japanese artisans using bamboo rods as the framework and covered with washi paper. The sculptural feel of the fixture is amplified by its oversized scale but keeps a lightness to it.
