Coshamie’s Design Pick: COPPER DUST

Eclectic, Luxurious, Artistic and Unforgettable A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of attending a joint launch between BUSTER + PUNCH, Martyn White Designs and Copper Dust at the BUSTER + PUNCH showroom in East London.

A recipient of The Prince’s Trust, Copper Dust is helmed by the talented and emerging designer Vanessa Agyemang, and is a luxury British home décor brand that specialises in bespoke and handmade lampshades, as well as limited edition illustrations.

#InTheNews: The latest from designers, architects and artists worldwide

Author: Coshamie Shanghai studio XL-Muse has used black-mirrored flooring and arched shelves in order to create a tunnel of books inside a Chinese store. The shelving reaches all the way up to the ceiling inside the corridor of the Yangzhou Zhongshu bookstore, and is reflected by the floor below in a stunning effect that emulates water. The studio is previously known for designing an oval reading room with stepped shelving for another branch in Hangzhou.

Oh, there are a few definite “outs” in hotels, which I’m happy to mention. TVs in the bathroom used to be considered luxurious about 10-15 years ago, but not anymore. Claridge’s can actually tell you that no one’s even bothered to switch a single TV on since their installation. It’s also...
