Harvey Chan and 'Close Strangers'

Recently featured in a post on the popular Design Sponge blog, is one of Harvey Chan's pieces from his Close Strangers series.  Jacqui Oakley, a fellow illustrator and designer Jamie Lawson's apartment was featured.  Jacqui is quoted as saying, "The fireplace in the living room was one of the selling points of this apartment — we love the blue tiles and dramatic mantel. We’re so lucky to have a Harvey Chan original to contemplate from our comfy vantage point." Below is a video taken from the opening night of Harvey's Show.
