Luxury For All
Adored for his humour and flamboyance, British interior designer and head judge of reality TV series The Apartment, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen has launched a collection of sofas and armchairs in collaboration with Courts. Ranging from sensual tufted seating such as the velvet SG50 Cocktail sofa (from $1,699) that’s inspired by Singapore’s jet- setting glamour, to contemporary designs such as the Beach Party sofa (from $799), the Laurence Collection proves that you don’t need to splurge to luxuriate in quality home furnishings!
Check out the range at Courts outlets, or log onto their website for more details.
Award-winning practice Design Intervention launches its Signature Series of furniture that’s designed by an in-house team. The collection features gilded surfaces, sensual shapes and bold designs, for a contemporary luxe look. We love the East-meets-West Chinoiserie designs, such as the Cheongsam Chair ($3,400, pictured) – a true statement piece!

Sit Up Right
A chair with good support benefits your health. The Freedman Chair is designed to prevent you from slumping forward while seated. The seat supports your spine and pelvis, so they don’t collapse (as when you are seated in a conventional chair), but remain in the same position as when you’re standing. The small back rest, seat pan and stainless steel wheels give this chair its unique look.
Tired of soft sofas? Harvey Norman has brought in a luxurious solution: Hilker Furniture’s Lederwerkstatt collection of firm leather sofas. Direct from Germany, the collection complements Harvey Norman’s current range of Italian sofas. The sofas are handcrafted by Hilker’s very own leather artisans in Germany, creating high-quality pieces that stay firm over time. The Lederwerkstatt sofas come in two comfort levels, medium and firm.
Available at all Harvey Norman Stores. From more information, visit their website.
