A 1950s feel to our room this week – with a bubblegum carpet from Vanderhurd, a pale pink Murano chandelier, original DSW chairs in pastel shades and a very period furniture suite from Jules Leleu. Our favourite piece is from the 1970s – the Z desk in brushed steel by the inimitable Gabriella Crespi for sale at Piasa, Paris.

A similar Z desk in brass, sold at Phillips for £37,000 in 2012. Crespi (b 1922) is one of the best known Italian furniture designers of the 20th century.  She studied architecture in Milan and began her career with the “Small Lune” collection of sculptures in the 1950s but then designed accessories for Dior and her own furniture. Crespi is equally famous for her jewellery designs – some of which were reissued by Stella McCartney in 2008.
