Marta (an Interior Architect) and Louis (a furniture
producer) epitomize a modern international couple. They live and travel between Paris, Barcelona, Singapore and Bali, making their work-life balance a designer’s dream! Together with their Singaporean business partner, they created Heaps and Woods, an Interior Design company that manufactures and designs beautiful furniture at affordable prices for the European market. We were delighted to catch them while they were here and visit their home studio. BI was lucky to take a peek into their design process.
The amazing rice views from their windows and the stillness in the area make their home a great place to develop ideas and get creative without interruption. Their regular travels are a constant source of inspiration for their way of living and the interior design and architecture they create.
Their home, a mix of minimalism, rawness and experimental furniture, gave me a great insight into their design aesthetic. Their collection of prints gives their home a sweet touch of faraway places and a longing for exploration.
The royal blue walls and the marigold orange in the upstairs bedroom uplift the house, adding excitement and I’m carried away to Mexico and India. I somehow wish to step into Marta and Louis’ shoes, if only for a brief period, to live their gloriously nomadic designer life.
