"A few summers ago, Jason discovered this fabulous 19th-century Chinese box at a flea market in Wales. Anyhow, this is one hot box. We adore the glorious lacquered exterior with its Chinese fan motif. The interior is outfitted with a fold out writing table, slots for stationery and a hidden compartment for stashing notes to significant others."
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Granny’s antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian élan. "If you are looking for beige and boring,” says Jason, "go bark up someone else’s tree.”
