Natasha Mead | The Tessuti Top Five
We caught up with designer Natasha Mead to see what her plans are for summer and what her top five Tessuti wish-list products are for this holiday season...
What are your plans for this coming summer?
Lots of food and sun! We're spending Christmas in a Coromandel bach with the family. I managed to read 6 books in 6 days last Christmas, including 1Q84 by Murakami (which is a beast), so I've got a record to beat. Then we're down to Wellington, heading to another bach, this time in Castle Point for New Years with friends. There's going to be 12+ of us to one bathroom, so not sure how long we'll last, but it'll be a nice chaotic way to end the break.
What is your most memorable Christmas gift?
Books, design ones, always.
What are your Tessuti Top 5 Products?
I'm really enjoying all the Joska & Sons brass accents recently, it's one of my favourite materials as it develops such a great patina over time and gets progressively less shiny. The shelf especially would be perfect above a bed for books and a lamp.
