What I took with me to Sao Paulo

I feel I’ve been absent from my lovely blog for ages.  Our little one
has been under the weather for what’s gone from the week and I’ve been paying
attention to nothing else.  Thankfully today he’s feeling much better and I have
time to share with you what I have taken with me, not literally, these things
were shipped, to Sao Paulo.  I’m very pleased with the things I got in
such a short notice. 
Besides that I’ll start with what I’m the least happy, the rug bought intentionally
for the living room.  How on earth did I end up with a pale beige
sisal/jute rug?  Well easy, these stores never have big rugs available,
they are always in back order and I didn’t have the time to wait for
them.  Nothing, that sometimes you have to do with what you have. 
Let’s see how that works!
When I opened the box of the Lawrence Flush Mount from Circa
Lighting, I ended up gasping for air.  When I got it I had no idea it was
going to be this beautiful.  It is really amazing!

 
I was lucky finding great pieces at auction for great price.  I
found a pair of this oversized French lounge chair which I got for a very good
price.  They were lucky to come across my fantastic upholsterer in the US
who was able to upholster them in just two days and got them delivered just one
hour before the guys finished packing the truck.  Talking about luck,
ha!  I used the beautiful ikat Schumacher fabric below.

 
And here, below is the carpet I have no idea what I will end up doing
with… 

This handsome mid-century Brazilian sofa was sitting in the back of an
Auction.  Begging to be returned back home and I did it a favor. 
He’ll soon be back home in its birth country.  This one may go in my
office.

And finally the awesome headboard for our little one’s bedroom.  The
fabric is Cap Ferrat by Alan Campbell, Quadrille.  I can’t wait to see his
bedroom!

    umm.. I realise I mustn't have popped into your blog for ages, because I am thinking er, Sao Paulo? You have obviously moved.

    For a good many years, Sao Paulo has been on my radar for producing the most dynamic and exciting architecture on the planet. Brazil in general, but Sao Paulo in particular. What made you move there?
