My Home. My Gallery

The creations of Jung Myung Taek are engaging and yet perplexing. They appear as sculptures or objects of art to be admired from afar, but these pieces are functional. They are designed for a purpose as well as being designed to evoke a response or emotion. Form & function being of equal importance.

The Ducking Lounge Chair above is perhaps my favourite from the collection, I imagine this could be a statement piece in an ultra modern room or a beautiful addition to a bustling eclectic interior.

Photographing The World For You

Yann Arthus Bertrand is a stunning photographer with a unique view of the world. He captures the most incredible images of countries and cultures, from inspiring landscapes to amazing detailed views of plantations and environments.

What is more, Yann Arthus has provided a free desktop wallpaper library from which you can download any of the images for your own personal use. With over 2000 images to choose from you can travel the world from your desktop!

Athenaeum Hotel Goes Green

The Athenaeum Hotel in London's Mayfair has installed a beautiful vertical garden on the corner of the building. It's a stunning transformation for the building and also provides a perfect retreat for flying and crawling London tourists, as well as the more conventional 2 legged variety!

The wall has been designed by renowned designer Patrick Blanc and showcases swathes of native plants, wildflowers and nettles. We sincerely hope this starts a trend!
