DIANA KOTB LOVES – EAST MEETS WEST

Posted on

Flying carpet, sofa or art installation? ‘East meets West’ by Tonio de Roover begs the question.

In a visual sense, the sofa appears to be the perfect statement piece for ones home but you will be disappointed to know it is a sculptural object definitely not designed for sitting.

To Roover, ‘East meets West’ is a representation of the idea of a magic carpet rising from the East and finding its way to the West. Further demonstrated by the modern aesthetic and materials used.

 

Why Does Team Diana Kotb love East meets West?

Not only were we instantly captivated by its beauty, but the piece connects personally to many muslims born and bred in Western countries. It exemplifies the perfect balance between our community and our heritage harmoniously intertwined. A concept that the Diana Kotb Team never looses sight of.

Diana Kotb Loves – Chilled Warmth

Posted on

 

tumblr_mhpf9tfEZ11r626g8o2_r1_500Team Diana Kotb loves balance and this space is the perfect representation.

From the polished mirrored walls in sharp geometric shapes, to the aggressive angles and shelving, this room should in theory feel quite cool. However, this designer cleverly balanced the space with Cherise soft and luxurious velvet seating and warm toned floorboards on the floor and ceiling, to complete the look.

The result, is a beautifully inviting space that feels like home.

 

Why does Diana Kotb love Chilled Warmth?

Not only does it have a fresh and fabulous colour palette, the clash in textures, shapes and tones are in perfect harmony. A technique we love to experiment with ourselves!

 

 

Diana Kotb Loves – Rhombus (Origami)

Created by Artist Shannon Finley, this stunning geometric work, injects the perfect balance of bold and pastel tones.

At first glance, you find yourself admiring the beauty of the digital style geometric painting.

However, the more you look, the more your eye creates false images created by the shapes and shadows of the piece.

Why does Team Diana Kotb Love the Rhombus?

Not only do we love the colour palette, Finley’s artwork creates optical illusions from a 2D painting. A skill, not many have ever mastered. Hidden beneath its beauty, are hidden surprises.

A trait we employ ourselves!
