Florence Welch’s New House – Vintage Apotheosis

Florence Welch, best known as lead singer for indie band Florence + the Machine, has a very distinct sound that’s often described as mysterious and romantic.

Antipode Chair by David Rickard

The Antipode Chair is a seat for both sides of the world within one place – an object that relates to its current position and also that of the relative antipode some 12,750km ‘down’.The antipode of any place on Earth is the point on the Earth’s surface that is diametrically opposite to it.
