Fresh off the press from the New YorkTimes.

Fresh off the press from the New YorkTimes: my kind of news. The young couple Zoe Chan and Merlin Eayrs, both architects in their 30s, have pulled off a serious style coup recognized with this titan nod. Their conversion of this shoe factory in Shoreditch into a creation that is as intensely personal as it is magical, just begs for our collective bows. Puritanical to the point of monastic this interior still conveys a sense of warmth and homeyness thanks largely to the use of organic, rough-around-the-edges materials. They layered on cutting edge products from newly anointed design icons and presto! An abode that is inescapably unique, soulful and inviting. I have not seen such beautiful taste in a long long while. Not to be missed: the folded heavy linen shutter shades.
