The Aman Hotel in Venice is considered one of the most prestigious and well designed hotels of the past year. One of the great choices by the designer was to make use of the Maxalto collection from B&B Italia, creating a beautiful contrast to a very classical interior.

Furniture was mainly supplied by Moooi and outdoor furniture by B&B Italia.Read More

She was kind enough to take the editor on a lovely tour of Beirut and introduce him to some of Lebanon’s skilled crafts people and designers. With pride, I read the article and went through the beautiful slideshow with photos taken by Simon Watson.
