Welcome to the Monthly Favourites Section, a list of all the products I’ve been loving each month that I may or may not have already told you about but that I really want to shine a light on. With the industry being quite overwhelming at the moment with new launches of products every day, it’s not always easy finding what actually works, so I’m hoping the Monthly Favourites Section will become your trusted source of information as most of the products are ones I have personally tried, or they are furniture or decorative pieces we have installed in interior design projects. I’d love to discover which items you’ve also been loving at the moment in the comments below!
1. THE LORO PIANA MIND SET FOR MEDITATION
If there’s one habit which I’ve got more into over the past few years, it’s working on my wellness both physically and mentally. One of the tools that has really helped me channel my inner zen has been through yoga and meditation, whether at home or at a group class. Of course, for me it always helps to have workout gear I really look forward to getting into and using, so one of my guilty indulgences I’ve been eyeing is this beautiful Meditation set by Loro Piana. The meditation mat crafted from the finest cashmere , finished with leather edging, and its own soft pillow is perfectly paired with non-slip cashmere socks and a personalised water bottle in a cashmere holder with a leather strap. The Loro Piana identity and aesthetic is engraved in this wellness collection combining functionality, superlative quality and beautiful aesthetics. Are you in love too?!
2. TOM FORD JASMINE ROUGE EAU DE PARFUM
To my friends and family, it’s no secret that I have quite an obsession with jasmine scents. One of the things I look most forward to during the whole year is the arrival of warm Summer nights and the scent of night blooming Jasmine while walking through cobbled white streets of Southern Spain. Squeezed into a bottle, to me this smells like Jasmine Rouge Eau de Parfum by Tom Ford, so whenever I’m feeling a bit nostalgic during this time of the year, I love to spritz this on for a floral Summer night feeling.
3. GUBI PACHA LOUNGE CHAIR
Iconic designer Pierre Paulin’s vision of sitting on clouds came to life in this modernist creation. Taking up very little floor space, the Pacha lounge chair is ideal for a small reading corner in a living room or bedroom, as it is extremely comfortable and there is a choice between a fixed or swiveling base. This is a statement piece that we love at Femont Galvan Designers when specifying an interior design project, as the customizable upholstery options gives us plenty of options to transition this armchair depending on the room’s color scheme – a beautiful Autumnal burnt orange velvet, a fresh minty green hue, or my favourite, a soft and cosy fabric with tons of texture!
4. BANG & OLUFSEN BEOSOUND 2 SPEAKER
Bang & Olufsen has a reputation for making achingly beautiful tech, and in this case, the BeoSound 2 speaker is incredibly stylish and built to an extremely high quality, resulting in an object that would be an excellent addition to any home. We had the pleasure of collaborating last year with the B&O at our stand in Marbella Design Fair, and were able to put the speaker to test. Encased in aluminium, it’s aesthetically very pleasing to look at, featuring an intuitive control system where the top can be twisted to adjust the volume, and music is simply sent to the speaker via Bluetooth or Wifi. The speaker is described as having 360 degrees sound and it certainly exceeds expectations in terms of sound quality and volume. Ultimately, it looks and sounds amazing!
5. THE HAUMEA BLOWN GLASS PENDANT LAMP BY ELOA
Its shape is quiet, balanced, peaceful, and harmonious. The integrity of the blown glass gives the versatility of looking beautiful in any setting, whether suspended above a nightstand in a bedroom, or in a cluster above a dining room table. What I love most about these Eloa lamps is that they are mouth-blown glass, which makes every lamp unique in its own shape and form – how special right?!
