"Every room needs a good hook to hold your bags or towels or a bathrobe. Um, and what about these vintage brass hooks shaped like jolly pipe-smoking Asian gentlemen? Holy, kamoly, these are genius. John and Jason of Madcap Cottage unearthed these in London, and they are simply too top drawer for words."
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their imaginative 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. “You only live once,” say the pair, channeling Mae West, “but if you do it right, once is enough.”
