HANDCRAFTED DESIGN FROM POP & SCOTT

pots4

Australian makers/crafters Poppy and Scott are a team in every way, they share a love for creating, bringing people together and for their daughter Frida. After road trips around Australia, the US and Mexico they felt it was time to turn their bold design aesthetic and enthusiasm for the hand made into a business. A florist and a plumber by trade it seemed natural that they would turn their passion for designing and building towards creating furniture and pots. They have since developed a range of indoor and outdoor furniture and homewares, which they have always wanted for their own home but could never find. Every piece of furniture is designed and built in the workshop and every pot is hand painted by artists in their paint studio. Their pieces are rich with life, colour and texture yet simple and timeless. In their showroom in Northcote, Australia, you can find objects created by everyone under the Pop & Scott roof as well as artwork, ceramics and beautiful pieces made by talented friends. Luckily they also have an online store where you can buy (part of) their collection

A STABLE TURNED INTO A CONTEMPORARY HOME ON IBIZA

ibizacampo7

Can you believe that this contemporary home in the rugged north of Ibiza was once a stable? The owners of Ibiza Interiors developed this 200 year old finca into their showroom and guesthouse. To keep the character of the original building, basic materials are used. The beautiful authentic ‘sabina beams’ have been preserved, just like the original ancient stone walls in the kitchen and bathroom. The architects only used materials that were used traditionally on the island, like the iroko window frames, concrete and white chalk plastered stone walls. The building had been unused for years, and was in very poor condition. Therefore only the walls, and parts of the roof could remain. Electricity, water and sewage were not present, the architects had to add all these things to make it work as a contemporary home. Water comes from a private well and there are solar panels installed for hot water, floor heating and electricity. The cottage is consequently completely independent of the grid operation and is thus self-sustainable.
