I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Draw me like one of your French girls
Meet Rose. Not named after colour but the fact that it pulls the user gradually down into a posture not unlike the ‘Draw me like one of your French girls’ scene in Titanic. You know this posture very well, one that epitomises comfort and general sexy vibes, yeah that one. And also the fact that technically it’s a two-seater but there sure ain’t any space for Jack on this surface once the Mindy Project goes on. (Sorry Leo) Arms splayed, one foot thrown over the backrest and the other somewhere in a Dorito’s bag – this how I like my 5-minute breaks.

…see the world one more time with rose-tinted shades.

Rose is a great gal, soft but of solid build, great legs too. One afternoon in May I had spent an embarrassing amount of time at the Sofa & Chair Company, doing laps around the showrooms and then poring over fabric books as thick as my forearm. They are known to specialise in bespoke, luxury furniture, and I was in the market for a sofa. If you follow on Pinterest you’ll have noticed this little corner of my brain that still hasn’t reached puberty, clearly one that saw an opportunity and yelled ‘PINK, Let’s just do pink’ after hours of umming and ahhing and many a frazzled nerves of those waiting for me to decide. Six weeks later I met Rose, and I was enamoured by the result. (It could’ve been worse, I have a secret Austin Powers board) The blush fabric (Fabric: KOBE – Samba 38) was pulled over the supple foam-wrapped feather cushioning of the Renoir, and the light bounced cheekily off the dimples created by pulled buttons covered also, in linen blush-pink fabric. A cloud-grey piping (KOBE – 8) swept the edges and married perfectly with the marble coffee table. I was in love.

Ignore my brash Dorito-infused lifestyle for a moment, I’m marking this sofa an icon of awesome spontaneity, and small a reminder to see the world one more time with rose-tinted shades before this sarcasm becomes my identity and it’s too late.

Stay tuned for Part 2: The (gruelling) customization process and a tour of the Sofa & Chair Company factory (specifically, a room filled floor-to-ceiling with pastel-coloured foam, or also known as CAN I HAS DIS).

  6. Stunning!! x

  7. I saw a similar sofa at West Elm in the same sort of blush tone. I thought my partner would think it too girly but this post just made me think “who the f cares? I’m buying it” so thanks for giving me that excuse to get it.


  8. I’ve never seen such a sexier sofa before. Oh, Rose… you tease. PS your snaps on doing the “blush” image was epic! So cool seeing you work as creepy as that is!

  9. Beautiful work as per usual Shini! I think I’m going to have to convince my other half into having a pink sofa now!

  10. This could literally be on a billboard.

    Watching your creative process for this editorial on Snapchat makes me appreciate the imagery a million times more (and gives me all the more reason to extend my own web content beyond block script and uniform rectangular imagery)!

  17. I really love the grainy feel of some of the pictures, it takes me back to a time when pictures were taken with film… And i love the way you pose on that gorgeous sofa. I imagine a lady’s executive officer with this pink couch and a lovely pink briefcase over it – http://ellenvicius.com/sinead.html.

  18. Absolutely gorgeous shade of pink and I’m a sucker for anything with pulled buttons! The big question remains: is your new sofa Doritos-proof?
    Fabulous work as always, Shini :-)

  28. Who needs a slim gal when you’ve got a sturdy sofa like Rose who’s there for you as you shout at the character in the tele for hiding in the most obvious place where the killer will find them or as you bawl your eyes out because you ran out of Dorito watching the MasterChef… Brilliant as always Cherie~
