my husband writes...

Monday, 27 October 2008 by Irene Hoofs

Irene asked me to write a few lines today as a (one time only) guestblogger... my name is Rik and Irene is my wife... and although I write for a living (I am a lawyer)... writing a post is quite different... so you will  have to forgive me... why couldn't Irene write today? There are a few reasons... today is a public holiday in Malaysia... Deepavali...or festival of lights... but most importantly she has been very busy getting the house ready for our families who will be visiting  during November and December... inevitably this meant moving around all furniture...heavy lifting of some of our contemporary collectibles... we both share a passion for the 50's/60's era...but still looking to find an original Stag design...

Johnsylviareid_stag {Vintage chest of drawers by John and Sylvia Reid for Stag}

Already a few months ago I was reading about Stag in Elle Decoration UK... a Nottingham based company... manufacturing the designs of John and Sylvia Reid..Sylvia Reid worked for Robin Day... see anyhing familiar in these designs? John & Sylvia designed some great pieces... but are hard to come by it seems (particularly in KL as you might imagine...), I especially like this teak veneer cabinet...Robinday_Hille

More pieces that are high on our wishlist are these classic pieces by Robin Day for Hille...simple and sleek... truly great design...Lucienneday
And I'm sure these fabrics would Irene make very very happy ... beautiful classics...fabrics by Lucienne Day...collectors' items for sure...
