La grande dame du design

The grand dame of design, Andrée Putman, passed away yesterday aged 87. One of the most stylish women the world will ever see.

“Unless you have a feeling for that secret knowledge that modest things can be more beautiful than anything expensive, you will never have style.”

Rest in peace, Madam Putman, you taught me so much.

Today’s obsession

Totally loving the ‘Belle Etoile’ daybed by Andrée & Olivia Putman for Serralunga. So stylish. But then what would you expect from a design legend..?

The Putman

For those that enjoyed my post yesterday about Andree Putman, here are some images of a project she recently completed in Hong Kong – The Putman – a complex of high end serviced apartments.
Living Room, featuring her signature crescent moon sofas.

Clean modern bedroom.

Andree Putman

Andree Putman is definitely one of my favorite designers. She is a living legend, and has a style that is modern, elegant and refined. These photos are of a project she completed in Paris, and were featured in the latest Belle Magazine (from Australia).

I was lucky enough to hear her talk at a design conference here in Hong Kong earlier in the year and despite her age (she’s now in her 80’s – and still creating inspirational interiors and products) she is very witty and charming, and still sports her signature coiffure and red lipstick.

I have had the book ‘Andree Putman’ on my amazon wish list for some time now….and now I’ve realised that another has been released called ‘Putman Style’ – so I’m hoping I can get both of them soom. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did!
