Privacy and a sense of luxury often go hand-in-hand, so it stands to reason that with the prevalence of open-plan homes, wall-free workplaces and vast hospitality venues, we instintively seek to demarcate our own domain.
Designers are heeding the call and rising to the challenge by putting some back into it – literally.
Endeavouring to create miniature retreats within our homes, hotels and workplaces: designers are affording us greater variety in lounging options through the use of high backs and wrapped or winged arms.
Each of the collections pictured here is steeped with the afore mentioned sense of luxury – the pieces take on coccoon-like characteristics that are once is comfortable, sophisticated and intimate.Share on Facebook

2012 is upon us and Sydney rang the new year in with a powerhouse creative display directed by Sydney born designer Marc Newson.
Famed for his works for Ford, QANTAS, Nike, Alessi and many-many more, 2011/2012 NYE in Sydney saw his experience across interiors, spacecraft, products and furniture broadened to ignite a party atmosphere for over 1 million Sydneysiders on the Harbour foreshore as well as being televised to a global audience of 1.1 billion.
As creative director for the evenings firework and entertainment display, Newson drew on the theme of ”Time To Dream”, harnessing the firepower of over $6million in pyrotechnics and a catalogue of australian music as a backing track – the results were phenomenal.
Australia was built upon dreams. From the dreamings of past millennia to the dreams of recent settlers. Whether day or night-time, dreams are our minds in free-flow, uninhibited and reflecting what we truly aspire to. From little babies to old people, we all dream. New Year’s Eve is when fantasy and aspirations flow. A vision for the coming year, with designs on a better life. The moonstruck and lovestruck may dream of fulfilment. The stargazers dream of the worlds beyond ours.
