The bath is screened by stainless steel Crittal windows that enclose a void through the home and is teamed with a bespoke, polished stone sink. According to the studio, the aim was to design a “place to retreat to, to guiltlessly linger and hang out”.

ErgoEdge – a Singapore furniture maker which was among the first home-grown companies to design height-adjustable electric tables such as the AmpDesk and desktop accessories since 2017 – has launched an upgrade of its popular line of chairs.

The ErgoTune ergonomic office chair is said to be tailor-made for home offices. The latest iteration features a more comfortable fabric, an improved lumbar support system called Atlas and a new GyroBrace 5D armrest.

It works on the principle that comfort can be achieved only when a chair is tailored to a person’s unique body shape and is fully adjustable across 11 points – from the headrest, backrest and armrest to the seat’s height, depth and recline levels.

Other sections of your notebook can be sorted by rooms, which can hold pictures of furniture and corresponding swatches of fabric, paint samples, flooring ideas, lamps and even art.
