A VILLA IN THE EAST

Our feature of this month is a Villa in East Coast, where the confluence of influences perfectly reflects the diverse backgrounds and eclectic interests of its occupier.

Strong colour themes, Art Deco design, a collection of African art, references and reverences to cinema, music and literature, a set that makes you want to stay.

Aphorism is glad and proud to have contributed elements of decoration such as the wall placards (constructed with acrylic panels and a aluminium concealed frame), the brass lamps (notably a secession style Austrian model) some fine Art Deco corner chairs and gueridons and some modernist ceiling lights.
