She’s taken her love of the Old World and made herself a new one. Pack your passport for 1615 Dragon Street, where designer Laura Lee Clark Falconer has filled the space with all manner of fanciful tables, upholstered furniture, glossy garden stools, lyre back chairs, lamps, even books and gifts. It’s all here at retail, ready to go, curated by the woman with 20-plus years in the interior design business and a bit of a thing for Italy – she summer-studied with Parsons in Rome, Venice and Florence. That worldly flair is evident, but it’s braced with a contemporary splash: the art here, also for sale, is by edgy galleries Barry Whistler and Dunn and Brown Contemporary. Now that’s what we call mixing it up.
