Lozi Loves : The Best Of the Ideal Home Show

 

It is perhaps a surprising venue to find some of Lozi's minimal pieces, but the Ideal Home Show roomsets for GoodHomes magazine are a treasure trove of unexpected inspiration.  Designed by Kate McPhee, they feature a great mix of classic brands, new collaborations and high street staples.

Lozi has a selection of our smaller plywood accessories on display in the Family Living Room, and to celebrate we thought we should go through our favourite pieces and tell you what Lozi pieces we would love to see them next to.

We love the mix of high end designer pieces with cheaper items from high street chains.  Mixing up pieces makes a room unusual and modern without breaking the bank. 


The unexpected surprise - British Homestores Lighting

Yes you read that right - British Homestores, or BHS the old fashioned department store your nan shops at, does a beautiful and incredibly affordable range of lighting.  Yes they still do some wonderfully tacky crystal chandeliers and questionable table lamps with pleated lampshades, but their new range of art deco and industrial inspired minimalistic lighting is worth discovering.  Brilliantly priced, in the right environment these lamps could easily pass off as an expensive antique. Our favourites are by far the Them Table lamp, Adum drop pendant and Alex and Voel Floor Lamps.

The Incredible Tech  - Sony's Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector

We still can't get over how small this projector is!  "Display whatever you like wherever you like" might be Sony's tagline for this projector, but we like to think of it as "never again balance your projector precariously trying to get the right angle".  Measuring an astonishingly tiny 80 mm × 131 mm × 131 mm, this projector redefines discreet. By projecting up rather than forward, it can be placed on a counter top or table under the wall you wish to project onto instead of halfway across the room.  

Starting at £899, this little piece of tech definitely doesn't come cheap, but in our opinion is completely worth the money, especially if you live in a small urban appartment where space is at a serious premium.

Pair it with:  Lozi's Shelving System or Smile Shelf

Lozi's beautiful Shelving System is the perfect companion to this clever piece of tech.  So tiny and discreet, you would barely notice it was there until you wanted to turn it on.  Or carefully hang a Smile Shelf so it is perfectly positioned for projecting on film night.

The Timeless Classic - Tom Pigeon's Prints

Founded by Pete and Kirsty Thomas in 2014, Tom Pigeon is a multi disciplinary studio that designs "simple things for people to enjoy".  Their selection of minimal prints focus on pleasing if surprising colour combinations and explore the use of negative space as well as the balance of line and form.  Simple and powerful, it is really hard to go wrong with these prints.  Available framed and unframed and starting from as little as £25, these are a brilliant way of adding a splash of colour without going too wild. They also do a fantastic range of stationery and their understated jewellery makes a perfect birthday present.

The Queen of Colour - Camille Walala for A Floor Story Rug

Her work having now nearly become ubiquitous, Camille Walala remains the queen of instagramable colour.  Her distinctive vibrant geometric prints are heavily inspired by the Ndebele tribe and the Memphis movement and are a fantastic way of brightening up a room.
