Ochre is probably best known for its lighting designs – the Arctic Pear and Seed Pebble chandeliers are the two probably best known to me, although the breadth of their creativity is seemingly endless – screens (featured here the other day), chests of drawers, mirrors – even table mats, yet everything is perfectly muted and cool to the point of sombre. It is worth noting that Harriet Maxwell McDonald’s New York loft is anything but gloomy though!
Ochre is one of those design studios that amazes me with their perfect taste and impeccably natural-seeming design. Texture, material and form are wildly different throughout their collection, but all perfectly cohesive. Tarnished mirrors and glass you want to touch, coupled with modern shapes and tactile fabrics make it a very welcoming and comfortable range, that you know you could (if you were lucky enough) easily live with and take pleasure in.
Arctic Pebble, Coco Mirror in Black, Seed Cloud – all available to order from Ochre.
