We've delivered furniture to Mahsa's amazing mid-century home before. It's nestled in native bush in Titirangi and much like the clothing Mahsa designs, it's tailored yet relaxed, elegant and timeless. Mahsa has filled the house with amazing art, mid century design and contemporary modern furniture.
When the latest copy of Homestyle magazine arrived at our door we were exited to see a feature article on Mahsa. We've selected a couple of pics from the article but it's definitely worth a read in full so make sure you pick up the latest edition.
I like juxtaposition, I find the house poetic and rustic so adding modernist pieces makes it ‘sit up’ and adds to the enduring atmosphere.
Ildhane was the first item to be developed for the Nedre Foss collection. Ildhane has an expressive shape that resembles a bird with a handsome tail. ‘Ild’ is Norwegian for fire and ‘hane’ translates to rooster.
As with most projects from Anderssen & Voll, Ildhane was born as a hand sketch. The sketch was translated into a computer model which then was printed in 3D. This process of printing, making subtle changes and then reprinting was looped until the designers felt absolutely confident about the shape.
Mahsa has a keen eye for modern and contemporary furniture and design. The impressive extending dining table is a classic mid-century Scandinavian design. It works perfectly with the large Gidon Bing vase from our store and the vintage ercol dining chair.
For the lounge Mahsa has selected sofa's and coffee tables that fit with the aesthetic of the home but will age well and have a timeless beauty. Her coffee table is a design classic from Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi.
