Mosman House

Popov Bass Architects’ integrated approach to design provided Deirdre Huntley and her family with seamlessly harmonised space for their house in Mosman, Sydney. Here, she takes us through some of her favourite pieces.

Sarus Standing Lamp designed by David Weeks, davidweeksstudio.com. Available from FY2K, fy2k.com.au

We loved the organic nature of the design which contrasts with the structured elements of the room.  It sits in the formal living room as functional piece, as well as a piece of art in its own right.

Adjustable Table E 1027 designed by Eileen Gray. Manufactured by ClassiCon, classicon.com. Available from Anibou, anibou.com.au

We chose these side tables for the family room because of their friendly curved lines, which is used by our young boys who are very ‘playful’. Also a beautiful classic that we will have forever.

Yoda Easy Chair designed by Kenneth Cobonpue, kennethcobonpue.com. Available from KE-ZU, kezu.com.au

We loved the playful shape of this chair and think it works very well in the master bathroom as a decorative element. The playful shape, material and bright colour adds a bit of fun to a room that doesn’t really require furniture.

Helion sofa designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti, minotti.com. Available from dedece, dedece.com

The sofa is used in the formal living room. we chose it for it’s structured design and the sense of order it adds to the room. We love its deep rich leather.

Botanica Kiri rug designed by Naja Utzon Popov, najautzonpopov.com

This rug is used in our family room, we chose it for it’s vibrant colour and relaxed playful pattern which creates movement in the space.

Wishbone chairs designed by Hans Wegner. Manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son, carlhansen.com. Available from Corporate Culture, corporateculture.com.au

We chose this chair for our more formal dining room. We loved it’s simple lines and tactile materials that adds a lovely scale to this large open room.
