PENSON’s Pick: Haute Couture design looks

It’s not often that Haute Couture looks and themes are relatable for us design geeks.

Every time I introduce myself to someone from a different walk of life saying I work with a team of interior designers I often get this “okay not bad” nod. In these scenarios I always expect the talk of home makeover shows, slick periodical spreads, IKEA and discounts on habitat.com Assisting interior designers while not being a designer myself allowed...

PENSON’s Picks: Patterns

Patterns are the key to great design and can make or break the composition of a room. But it isn’t only your walls you can use a pattern in to add an extra layer to a space, patterned bedsheets, posters, pin boards, cushions, or even just stationery sat on a desk will have a huge...

Our CEO Lee is a fan of all things custom: from furniture to fashion, if it’s a one of a kind he’ll want it twice as much as the original. He currently has his custom David Gilmour Fender guitar set up in the office alongside it’s accompanying vintage amp ready for the evenings when he...
