Mineheart takes its name from the Shakespearian English words ‘mine’ and ‘heart’, meaning ‘my heart’. This expresses their passion to create freely, without restraint.
The company produces the ‘Lovable Collection’ of furniture, lighting, wallpaper and interior accessories and was launched in 2010 by designers Brendan Young and Vanessa Battaglia of Studiomold and Young & Battaglia. The duo are known for their playful approach to design, and innovative re-appropriation of materials and imagery, so expect the unexpected…
The Palace wallpaper is inspired by the wonderfully opulent interiors of stately homes and palaces of the 18th Century. It features an image of a large hall adorned with beautiful paintings and chandeliers. Absolutely fabulous for creating an illusion of space and grandeur.
The Renaissance cowhide is unlike any cowhide you have ever seen, it’s from a very exotic breed of beast that lives in the fantasy world of designers Young & Battaglia. The piece features a background image created by artist Himitsuhana, overlayed with tufts of fur and hand cut out in a special rubber backed fabric.
A fusion between art and utility, this rug will no doubt add a beautifully surreal touch to any interior, and unlike real cowhides this one is hypoallergenic, washable, and will always lay flat.
The ‘Renaissance’ wall light is a beautifully simple circular shade made using traditional lampshade making techniques of fabric stretched over a steel frame. The front diffuser features an image of a girl lit by candlelight, and is designed to give a soft, romantic glow. The candle flame is cleverly positioned directly in front of the light source so that when the light is on, the light emanates from the flame. Genius.
