Phorm Interiors have long been huge fans of designer candle makers Bronwyn Gascoigne & Dean King. Their stunning fragrances like 'Figue', 'Mount Fuji Rice Flower' & 'Aria' are wonderfully complex and intense.
We are honoured to be collaborating with Gascoigne & King on a Phorm Interiors signature fragrance that will be available later this year.
Gascoigne and King candles are available at quality retailers or through their website.

phorm interiors latest project...kangaroo point apartment

Teak and New Guinea Rose wood, oversized bold print and clean, simple lines pay tribute to a 'Mid-Century' aesthetic in our recent refurbishment of this Kangaroo Point river front apartment.

A light, architectural and structured hand was adopted for the design of this apartment, incorporating large areas of panelled walls, detailed timber ceiling features and designer lighting. Furnishings replicate the design framework with minimal lines and an uncomplicated spatial layout.

A built-in dining area with banquette seating, floor to ceiling cabinetry and a simple charcoal & white palette of hard finishes work together to provide an overall feeling of a space 'left open'.

Project Design and Management: Steven Stewart and Ian Wrightson (Phorm Interiors)
Lighting Design: Darren Guyett (Euroluce) & Ian Wrightson (Phorm Interiors)
Kitchen & Joinery: Gavin Fook and Richard Yeowart (Dimensions by Design)
Builders: Shane Beetson & Michael Kostric (One Choice)

Queensland Homes presented us with a few questions for an article on 'what makes a great home'. The answers appear in their 2010 'Gold' Edition.

in the mix...

Offline Brand Experiences...
Founded in 2010 Access Agency is a 'transformational creative ideas agency'.
Their point of difference is they desire to create memorable (talked about) experiences through an extreme mix of brand/product cross-marketing.
The attached images were a trial for NY Fashion Week with Burberry burgers, Hermes fries and Paul Smith soft serve.
Worth talking about...perhaps Phorm Interiors could mix Queensland interiors with A grade turf.
What about quality custom furniture with children's outdoor swing sets.
Anyone have any ideas/suggestions to add???

wow...light emitting wallpaper

Jonas Samson is a young designer from the Netherlands. He has invented the ultimate in home illumination – light emitting wallpaper.The wallpaper is constructed by "sandwiching" a number of layers together that combine to produce light. The back layer is a silver-based solution that conducts electricity, while the layer above this contains phosphorous pigments that light up. On top of this is a flexible, transparent ITO conductor layer, with regular wallpaper placed on top to act as the final, outwardly visual layer. When switched on, is a visually stunning wall-of-light that can be turned off and on, just like a regular light. A must-have for those who can afford it...after all we have bespoke custom furniture, designer products to suit all tastes and budgets, why not wallpaper that light up.

all in the detail...

Welcome 2010!
We hope that everyone had a great christmas and took time to relax and revive ready for the new year.
Images (above) are a sneak peek of Phorm Interiors latest project at Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. We feel this interior (more images to come) is the 'new' quintessential look for Queensland interiors.
Phorm Interiors designed custom furniture pieces, sourced designer products, bespoke kitchen bathrooms.
