Feeling Faint

Various RBI bedroom vignettes that include a chaise longue.
One of our favourite types of lounge seating has to be the chaise longue (long chair).  We've used them in many of our projects and in a number of styles.  For me they always speak of a kind of pampered luxury.   A little sanctuary from modern life and all it's frenetic activity. They definitely recall a more genteel time.  But I think this graceful symbol of indulgent relaxation, can be part of our time as well.  The NYT's magazine recently included " A Short History of the Fainting Couch; we've long needed a place to lounge".   I certainly agree.

RBI rendering of Point Grey residence
We began working with our clients on this wonderful residence, some time ago and it's design has morphed to a place where we are now ready to build it.   The home occupies one of the premier sites in Vancouver, with spectacular views of mountains, city and sea.  We'll be following it's development throughout the duration of construction, in a feature project diary, here on our blog.

Interview on At Home

I had the pleasure of speaking with Cheryll Gillespie on her At Home radio show.  We had a great lively chat about our professional practice, design philosophies, guiding principles and loving what we do!  The interview runs about 12 mins, so get a coffee if you're interested.
