Pierre Augustin Rose
Pierre Augustin Rose no longer needs introduction in design-savy circles. Drawing upon the Bauhaus or Picasso as inspiration, the trio have created one of the most coveted furniture series last year. No surprise that with the current emphasis on timelessness, Pierre Augustin Rose seduces interior designers, as well as some of the most refined individuals all around the world- those interested in reinventing, magnifying their homes and offices. Pierre Augustin Rose is an association of styles belonging to three singular personalities; Pierre Bénard, Augustin Deleuze and Nina Rose. An immoderate love for singular places, a perpetually curious view on furniture and heritage of the great names of the XXth century- that is the key to the creative wealth of the young maison Pierre Augustin Rose. Simple lines is what would best define the way the collection reveals itself, often with a very innovative design that doesn’t collide with the classics of refined furniture. The talent of these designers hides behind their enlightened eyes as antique dealers, from which they allow the past to communicate with the contemporary pieces they create.

We had the pleasure to dine in one of London's freshest gastro gems in the hip neighbourhood of Shoreditch. Keen to know our first impression? Love at first sight sums it up just right; attentive staff, delicious-looking dishes served in pretty ceramics, a great dash of plants and flowers backdropped with concrete walls. Opened in November 2018, Pachamama East is focused on fresh seasonal produce, applying the bold flavours, aromas, textures and spices that make Asian food so utterly tasty. The restaurant offers a unique experience to its sister sites, which have developed a strong following for their vibrant food and ambience, as it is the first to explore the delicious spectrum of Asian flavours that are inherent in Peruvian cuisine. For those that are interested the behind-the-scenes secrets we've got great news; Pachamama East operates with an open kitchen. If you were wondering about the name though, Pachamama is an Andean goddess, revered by the Inca people of Peru. She presides over harvesting and is considered to be Mother Earth and Mother Nature. Connecting the people to the land, she is worshipped as a benevolent deity and it is believed if you treat the land well - the land will provide for you.

Editor's picks: TOP 5 bars
Every time we visit a new city, a day filled with meetings cannot end more rewarding than a drink in a local bar, you may agree. We all have our preferences whether it’s a cocktail, a mocktail, a locally brewed specialty beer or a glass of wine on a busy terrace in the heart of the city, or in a secret bar furnished with designer goods tucked away from tourist traps. This post is dedicated to the latter; despite the different locations these bars have a lot in common such as innovative drinks, appreciably attentive service and lush interior. Each of the bars is prepared to do things its own way that’s what makes them special, exclusive and versatile in they own rights.
À la Maison Grand
Welcome our new addition to our favorite brunch spots! À la Maison Grand was founded in 2015 and has just recently moved to the very heart of Budapest; to the ground floor of a stunning Art Nouveau building (you may look up to its stunning mosaic embellished top and oversized windows) at Szervita tér, built in 1906. The bright, spacious café-slash-restaurant is filled with natural light and custom-designed furniture. We haven’t quite seen such a diverse brunch menu anywhere else, so you might take your time to indulge yourself in the detailed and vast choices. It’s recommended to reserve your table in advance as the the place has quickly become popular amongst local and modern-day-travelers alike. Andrea, one of the founders envisioned a clear, sophisticated atmosphere when designing the interior of À la Maison Grand. Her aim was to create a place that stands out, and becomes an iconic spot in the heart of Budapest; to show a piece of her personal taste to the guests. White and grey dominates accompanied with brass the details. Thanks to the high-ceilings and mirrors the room feels both spacious and bright. The interior features plush chairs and comfortable, grey sofas. The pottery was chosen just as consciously; the Seltman Weiden porcelains belong to one of Germany’s oldest and most famous porcelain manufactory. They’re sorting porcelain since 1910 to the world’s best hotels and restaurants.

Four Seasons: Tea Afternoon
Do you fancy having an unforgettable festive experience that is both intimate, calming and luxurious? We certainly did, so on this occasion we switched from a brunch or lunch for something more sophisticated in the lavish surroundings of the Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace in Budapest; a Tea Afternoon. It’s finally that time of the year again to have an excuse to celebrate the festive season in style. The perfect place to seize the season, Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest presents festive experiences such as Afternoon Tea. Advent Herend Afternoon Tea has been a stalwart of the Afternoon-tea scene for some years, as one of the hotel’s special offerings. At Four Seasons, they pay attention to every single detail; from the fresh pinewood scent, through prime service to the type of tea and the shape of cake is being served. To give the experience a dash of a local touch, the tea is served in the famous Herend Porcelain Manufactory’s hand-painted fine porcelain sets. While Four Season’s Herend Porcelain sets were made originally for the King and Queen of England as presents, Ronnefeldt Tea is known as one of the oldest tea companies in the world. The tea leaves are harvested by hand at the best times of the year and are processed with care and respect. Perfection – each cup of Ronnefeldt tea has a characteristic colour and flavour that make it a unique sensory experience.
