'Doctor Decorum is on call for all your decoration emergencies. He has his fingers on the pulse of all things design. His specialist area? Luxurious 1970s nightclub glamour.

‘We share a passion for beauty. For houses, for cars, for nature. And especially for design and art. There is so much beauty in this world. Objects we easily fall for: a rare tea trolley found on a French brocante, or a plastic sculpture obtained at an auction. We buy the things we think are really beautiful.’

'We have come to know our way in the world of auction houses and other specific deco spots, purely by decorating our own homes. That’s how Doctor Decorum was born. We simply love hunting for the good stuff. And once we find it, we want to give it the best new home possible.'

'We especially look off the beaten track. We believe that’s where one finds the most exclusive things. But we love established names as well. Charles & Ray Eames, Verner Panton, Eero Aarnio. Their designs are of a timeless beauty. We think the mix of famous and unknown design is very exciting.'

'We have a special place in our hearts for design from Brazil. Particularly for the animal figurines made by the Brazilian artist Abraham Palatnik. We predict a great future for these in Europe. Dr. Decorum’s aesthetic is luxurious and artistic. Sometimes you need to look a little longer at an object to see its beauty. That’s what it’s about.'

'The World', Curtis Jeré


'Sometimes a special collection just happens, of samplers for instance. By itself on the wall a sampler may be boring, but if you mount fifteen together you may find something really exciting on your wall.'
