Duffy London design studio are pleased to introduce the swing table, designed by Christopher Duffy.
This table is ideal for putting a little extra fun into dinner times and boardroom meetings.
This four poster table uses its structure to suspend a central GEO lampshade and eight hanging chairs that sway playfully.
This design creates an exceptionally fun experience and aesthetic, creating a room within a room, with chairs that float around the table, which also make vacuuming a breeze.

A bespoke design by Paper Project Architecture and Design, completed in 2012. The property has been completely rebuilt with the addition of two extra layers to incorporate a basement kitchen and a top floor master bedroom suite.
To introduce maximum natural light throughout, in particular in the basement, large glass skylights in the roof have been installed over a glass cantilevered staircase, thus allowing the light to fall through the house from top to bottom. A further effect of the glass stair design is to pull together the floors in an open plan, integrated manner allowing the house to be free flowing and airy.

Col. Ronald Smith (he goes by Ronnie) recently retired in downtown St. Louis after 30 years in the U.S. Air Force —12 of which he spent traveling in Antarctica delivering supplies to scientific stations there as part of the U.S. Antarctic Program. Originally from the East Coast, he settled in St. Louis after a stint at nearby Scott Air Force Base and has integrated himself well into the local culture, particularly the local art scene.
In addition to his years of service to the country, Ronnie is a poet, artist and sculptor, as well as a collector of art and has used his spacious downtown loft as a gallery of sorts to display his own work and the large pieces he has collected by local and national artists, as well as artifacts from around the world.
