House Tour | Bethan Laura Wood

The designer and collector of colorful things invites T into her 575-square-foot East London home.

[MUSIC PLAYING] “Hello. I’m Bethan Laura Wood, and welcome to my home. Like every hoarder-slash-collector, you’ll be here forever, because everything has a special and unique story attached to it. This is my Royal sofa by Nathalie du Pasquier and George Sowden. It was a lot bigger than I expected, but I managed to get it in anyway. This is Cato. He’s the closest thing I have to a pet right now. This is my other pet— a jellyfish by Gaetano Pesce. This is the official duster for this style of lamp. I love to do artist-to-artist swaps, and many of the objects in my home, I’ve acquired this way, like this wonderful chair by Max Lamb. This is my vintage mobile that I got from Schmid McDonagh. This is George. He’s made by Bertjan Pot, and I imagine he’s the face of the knight in my favorite painting. I want to be in the dream that I think he’s having. Tea break! This is my kitchen, with my favorite broom, a gift from Fabien Cappello, a weave guide from Japan, and some disco lights. This, I got from a flea market in Japan. It’s a flat for making a handbag. I have a few handbags. This is where I keep some of my hats and handbags. I designed the hooks. This is from my collaboration with Valextra. I think Beyonce owns this one. I’ve got a thing for hats. Wiggles from Martino Gamper, my tutor at the RCA and a big influence on my life. These are my Pickled Balloons by Saelia Aparicio. They remind me of my lithograph by Eduardo Paolozzi. I reference his wiggles in many of my works. Welcome to my bedroom. This is a tapestry I picked up in Brazil. This is a light by Jochen Holz and a pillow by Yayoi Kusama. This is my beautiful Mini-Totem by Ettore Sottsass. It is one of my most treasured possessions and is double-dotted just like me. It’s kind of if a clown became a vampire I think, no?”
