What does the term ‘Design Hunter’ mean to you?
For me a .. Design Hunter is a person with a sophisticated eye for detail and difference. Scouring the world for objects, carefully curated with a unique design sensibility. Objects, that are not easily recreated that have taken time for the artisan to perfect. Where the balance and proportion are in harmony. Understanding the layering of items from different cultures, mediums and styles to bring interest and the unexpected to the room or space.
