If you've got a serious case of wanderlust, the 30 new pieces from renowned designer Laura Kirar might be your fix. Warm, earthy colours dominate the collection for the living room, dining room and bedroom.
Surrounded by agriculture and lush coastal plains in her estate, Kirar was influenced by the organic beauty of nature, to which she brought a quiet sophistication. It certainly shows, as clean lines and a backdrop of abstract expressionism art characterise the collection.
Highlights of the new collection include the Milpa Bedside Chest, with a simple but elegant geometric design in wood. An upholstery piece that stands out is the Lola Chaise, which oozes modern elegance.
The unique qualities in design brought to each piece are unmistakable, and lend to Kirar's wish that her collection should inspire homegrown creativity for those who purchase it. It might be a challenge for furniture to connect with us personally, but Kirar's new works could be up to it.
The Laura Kirar Collection is available at the Baker Furniture Gallery, located at 290 Orchard Road, Paragon #04-42.
