The Art of Storytelling

Storytelling first begins with something to tell. In the home, its stories about family, achievements, successes and romances.

Annie Leibovtiz, likely the most renowned photographer of the modern age uses the camera for her stories. Evoking raw emotions and popular responses to personalities from rock stars, actors, and even the queen of England [see the article].

In interior design, the stories we create in our homes and personal spaces are called, 'vignettes,' a collection of objects that, when combined, have a sense of meaning.

It makes an elegant yet practical stage for your favourite artworks, potted plants and other personal effects. The drawer allows storage for keys, wallets, purses and a myriad of bits and pieces that normally get lost throughout the home.
