H&D Hotlist #114: New design products, furniture and accessories
Laze in Luxury
Laze Living – a new homeware brand based in both Singapore and Australia – has just launched its first collection of bedlinen and plush towels, all made with 100 per cent Supima cotton. The Prelude collection embodies minimalist living and features nature-inspired items such as the Fern Stripe bedding range and the Whale Blue blanket. These were made with durability and luxury in mind, using techniques such as triple-gauze layering for the meditation blankets and antibacterial technology for the towels.
Coffee machines can get loud and interrupt your early morning. Not with the Miele CM5 Silence, which promises a 50 per cent noise reduction. And while you can brew via a touch of a button, the machine also allows for fine-tuning of settings such as the quantity of coffee and temperature. It looks great sitting on the countertop, with two finishes of obsidian black and rose gold pearl to choose from.
The Miele CM5 Silence Coffee Machine retails from $1,549 at www.miele.sg.
A Pillow and a Bag
Celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March, Italian luxury furniture brand Ludovica Mascheroni presents Josephine, a handmade ‘pillow bag’ made with Persian paisley cashmere fabric brought into vogue in Europe by Josephine Beauharnais, Napoleon’s queen consort. Rumoured to be the first European woman who wore paisley, Josephine loved it so much she commissioned 33 paisley dresses in 1908. This playful object can be used both as a bag and a pillow.
KitchenAid has unveiled its 2021 Colour of the Year: Honey. “This year, we will see warm, rich hues dominate across interiors and fashion alike. With Honey, KitchenAid marries the sweetness of togetherness with a golden- orange shade consumers are already naturally gravitating towards,” says Evelyn Ler, general manager at KitchenAid Asia. The products available in this colour are the K400 Blender and the Artisan Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer.
