Best Things: Casa Cubista
I’m starting to get very excited about my upcoming teaching trip to Lisbon with Ace Camps. It’s going to be an amazing exploration of tile, pattern and printing in a beautiful part of the world.
Hope you’ve signed up? If you’ve been needing a nudge, I recommend a look at the Instagram feed of Portugal-based stylist, editor and trend reporter Arren Williams. Tile and pattern overload!
Arren Williams lives in Olhão – a bustling fishing port on Portugal’s Algarve coast. That’s the base from which he and his partner travel the length and breadth of Portugal to find beautiful rugs, pillows, ceramics, baskets (and more) to share at Casa Cubista.
Most exciting of all (for me) is that Casa Cubista has been designing and making their own press-moulded tiles too, like that gorgeous one above. I’m all itchy with envy, actually! I’ve enjoyed following the process of manufacture via @arrenwilliams on Instagram:
Keep an eye out for more developments from Casa Cubista, and if you join me in Lisbon with Ace Camps, we’d all get to see this kind of Portuguese style at first hand!
Thanks for the wonderful feature! The Ace Camps trip to Lisbon in June looks, well, ace!
All the best from sunny Portugal,
Thank you for sharing! Looking forward to the workshop and all the adventures Lisbon will bring!
It works really well for me
