Weekly Obsessions: Bali Retreat

Above: This house was recently built by Jack @doyoutravel & Lauren @gypsea_lust Instagram travel influencer royalty. Their love for Bali have made them built their dream house as their base when they don’t travel the world.

Previously in Weekly Obsessions:

  • As part of its ongoing conservation project, the Eames Foundation recently harvested two eucalyptus trees on site. And in true Eames fashion, it got creative and resourceful with the material. In partnership with Herman Miller and Vitra, the only producers of original Eames furniture, the foundation just launched the Eucalyptus LTR Table, a special edition of the Eames Low Table Rod Base (LTR) originally designed in 1950.
  • Belgian fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester has together with Serax produced her first homeware and lighting collection, which launched at Maison&Object furniture fair in Paris this week.
  • Also, Danish lighting brand Nuura launches its Blossi lamp in black.
  • Best known for their wooden frames, Danish design brand Moebe has, for the first time, launched a collection of lamps that includes a table lamp and two pendants, all handmade from ceramic.
  • Meanwhile, Swedish interior blogger and writer Frida Ramstedt also know as Trendenser just announced that her best-selling interior handbook will be translated into 25 languages and published in 2020.

Spent more or less all week in Helsinki exploring, which is why I haven’t had time to blog much. However, here is everything you need to know this week:

A Stunning LA Home Full of Midcentury Gems and Great Artwork

Today I am
going to bring you to Los Angeles, just because I miss it all so much and
because of this stunning home of the owner of Galerie Provenance, a design
gallery specializing in bringing vintage furniture from Europe to the US.
Sheila Bouttier certainly has a great eye for the vintage pieces and have
created a home full of them. She lives with her husband and their two kids
surrounded by midcentury gems and a lot of great art.

Sheila is the granddaughter of the late American artist Benjamin Abramowitz, so an interest in art is most certainly running in her blood. With her mother she now also manages Abramowitz’s estate and many of his pieces can be seen at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

One of my
favorite elements of the Bouttier home is the living room with the curvy couch
and armchair paired with two of the now iconic Pierre Jeanneret Easy chair. One
wall in the living room is also a perfect example of how to create a gallery
wall – a wall featuring a mix of artworks by Benjamin Abramowitz.
