H&D Hotlist #070: New design products, furniture and home accessories
Del Conca Boutique
Del Conca Boutique Calacatta, a delicately glazed porcelain slab in bright white and with grey veining, takes on the sophistication and subtle drama of the Italian Calacatta marble that it draws on. It makes for a versatile backdrop too, whether imbuing a classic-style home with natural glamour or adding just the right amount of refined drama to a contemporary space.
Del Conca Boutique Calacatta retails at Rice, 213 Henderson Road #01-03. Visit www.rice-fields.com.
Alternative Objects – that’s what Commune’s new sub-brand Alt.o bills its curation of luxurious furniture designs. While Commune’s pieces are designed for smaller homes, Alt.o’s larger furniture pieces are poised to appeal to those with roomier abodes. Its collection will also feature more premium materials and bolder designs in a lighter palette and cleaner aesthetic.
It unveiled its first Singapore store last December, which is an extension of Commune’s flagship store.
Visit Alt.o by Commune at #02-52 Millenia Walk. Prices start from $599 for an armchair to $2,299 for a dining table.
Throws are perfect for lending warmth and cosiness to your home. The ones from Frette sparked our interest with their understated yet eye-catching designs that’ll instantly elevate a simple armchair.
Frette’s throws retail from $585 to $2,135, and are available at Takashimaya Department Store.
