Interior design as art: Hubert Le Gall

Where would you place in your house a mythical bull cabinet or a whale shaped lounge chair? Or a Yéti lamp for that matter? Crafted from sumptuous materials (rusted or golden bronze being the favorite), with playful, extravagant shapes and nevertheless functional quality, Hubert le Gall's designs deserve a special place in an art collector home. The daring aesthetic of the French artist's works got him the title of Creator of the year at the 2012 Maison&Objet Paris, Interior Scenes category.

If I remember coetrcrly from reading that article, the father of her sons is South African, so there are great snippets of South African art and design in her home - like the Peter Hugo photgraphic art in the second pic, the traditional wooden furniture in some of the rooms... I think I saw more when I was looking at the magazine. Nice to see in such a beautiful modern home. Just as it should be.
