Monday’s Masterpiece – Kooky in KL

Morning morning peeps!  I thought today I’d have a little oogle at a fun quirky restaurant we visited yesterday in Kuala Lumpur: Ben’s in the Pavilion.

It mixes a beachy whitewashed wood / blue ticking stripes / reclaimed wood tables vibe with industrial edgy accents like Tolix chairs and an oversize Anglepoise floor lamp.  They’re not exactly two styles I would put together but the results are surprisingly cool, have a peek:

And the terrace is a contemporary preppy / Tolix delight filled with greenery and comfy banquettes – love!

I’ve been pretty blooming enamoured with oversized Anglepoise floor lamps for a while now so thought I’d round up a few more inspo piccies.

What do you think…?  Do tell!

See here for the rest of the delish Scandinavian abode these last two are from.

And lastly a couple of interiors designed by the Queen of the Giant Anglepoise, Abigail Ahern – loving this flamboyant hot pink:

Heal’s and Atelier Abigail Ahern are the go to spots in London taaawn for these puppies – I wonder if they ship internationally, hmm…


  1. I am also loving the pink lamp, Elly! And that black/yellow combination in the restaurant looks great for me, but I am not a connaiseur 😉 I think I would go for a Anglepoise floor lamp less industrial, I mean that white lamp I do not like, I think is too big and too…aaaa industrial. Right?
    How was your weekend? Kisses

    Im so surprised to see this lovely restaurant in KL, it so modern, so chic, so unexpected. Been there a few times and haven’t come across anything like it, now I know who to ask 😉 These lamps are the coolest, I can just picture them in a huge open plan studio apartment! Thanks for your visit, hope you have a good and productive week ahead!
