i could live here: a beijing abode.



nǐ hǎo, si here, from the french by design blog. today, we’re heading to china to visit a home / workspace on the banks of a beijing river.

gu qi, furniture designer, and his girlfriend, mobai, a painter and graphic designer, live in this unique home in beijing. This space is both a residence and a showroom to gu qi’s furniture design business, a company named fanji. wood, gu qi’s favorite material, is predominant in this interior, and gives the space an authentic feel and a very welcoming touch.
