A Game of Two Halves

One of the nicest furniture sets at the latest round of The Arcade Event, “The Royce Collection” by Fancy Decor has a total of 17 pieces to collect. Every one of them is a little piece of art so even if you only have a few plays on the gacha, you’re bound to get a couple of gems.

My favourite piece here is the X Bench which is slightly Romanesque in style. You know, I’m not sure if I could put an overall style on this set but somehow, it all gels together in a most delightful way. My second favourite piece is the Royce Chandelier. Even when it’s not lit, the round bulbs give a pleasant glossy tone and the shape is a bit Art Deco to my eyes. And then I like this.. and I like that… you get the idea 🙂

I thought I’d try photographing the set in a fabulous partially open room, so I used part of the Songo Courtyard by Barnesworth Anubis. In front of the loggia, which you can’t see, is a pond which is surrounded by  formal paving, small flights of steps to the sides and clipped topiary shrubs. It’s walled on the remaining three sides and then you enter and leave by a gate at the end of this rectangular build. Quite primmy but well worth the effort.
