We just added a new chair to the VW Home Collection, the Tulip Armchair. A very sexy chair that can work as a pull up in the living room or used as a boudoir chair in the bedroom, where it may be both functional and decorative. I am very excited about the design of this beautiful chair which is also available in an assortment of fabrics.

Last year when I was in Indonesia I found these wonderful ventilating wood carved screens from the late 19th century. Due to their patina and the way the paint has worn off, they have become great decorative objects in my work. I have used them above the fireplaces, over beds, in hallways and in living rooms. I like the way they bring texture into a space. They are hard to find so whenever I see them I buy as many as I can.
This ox head is from Sulawesi in Indonesia, these were originally placed outside the home as decoration. Oxen are prized animals in Indonesia and considered to contribute to a family’s wealth, they are used for sacrifice during funerals and weddings; the amount of oxen that are sacrificed reflect the person’s importance.
When I was in Mali last year, I went to an outdoor market where I found these necklaces. They are actually made from individual tiny rings that were made out of recycled plastic all strung together. It’s a great example of an old/new mixed materials piece.
This is my new section highlighting my favorite pieces from VW Home, I hope you enjoy it and come back for more.
