Adam Bray's Room
Click on the items in the room to see a full description. This week, decorator Adam Bray has curated a bedroom for Collectionet. His space is stamped with all the characteristics of his taste – a free and energetic use of colour, a love of textiles and textures and an eye for the original, stand-out antique – like the adjustable mahogany chair attributed to Emilio Terry. Terry was a prominent society figure and decorator of the mid-20th century, working for Stavros Niarchos, Prince Rainier and Charles de Bestegui at Groussay.
Dotted around the room are an extraordinary collection of papier mâché and wooden flowers made in Germany and Italy in the late 19th century and used as teaching aides in universities. These bizarre oversize but delicate models can be taken apart to illustrate the parts of the plants. The two contemporary rugs are from the inspiring textile designer Christine Vanderhurd. A black ceramic table light by modernist André Aleth Masson from 1954 is a typically fun shape which livens up any room. Read more about Adam on our blog
