Blainey North, Limited Edition Furniture

I am not sure if you have seen the film 'I Am Love' with Tilda Swinton - but if you haven't, it is a must see, a must see. I said it twice for effect, because I really do believe it is worth seeing. When you see the film, you will love the huge Milano mansion that is occupied by the Recchi family. If not love, then you will respect the workmanship. It is the kind of mansion that most of us will likely never see the inside of. Blainey North's furniture, a young Australian designer, is very similar to the kind of furniture that is featured inside the Recchi mansion.

I came across Blainey's furniture recently, there were two or three pieces inside Becker & Minty in Potts Point. 

Blainey's work first impressed me when I was invited for the first time to the sauna and steam rooms of 54 Hyde - or what was known as 'Packer's gym'. This unique health club, one probably without peer in Sydney, was designed and decorated by Blainey North's company. Unfortunately I cannot share the photos I have of that complex, nevertheless you can find them on Precision Flooring's website.
