Introducing: The Winston Collection

Oct 14, 2014

There is something intriguing about buttons.

Perhaps it is that buttons transform a two dimensional surface into a three dimensional texture. Although every pull and every button seem to look the same, they are all slightly different, not generated with sterile perfection but pulled by hand. The result lends to a pattern with aleatoric order, and testimonies of the art of craftsmanship, and the skilled craftsman himself, that patiently connected strings, strips, squares and buttons to form Winston.

Winston Queen Bed with High Headboard in Jet Leaf Fabric

 

“The details are not the details. They make the Design” Charles Eames.

 

Details are intentional and have a purpose, some technical, some esthetic, some both. The cover for example, that drapes over the rails and foot board serves the technical purpose to seamlessly connect them; At the same time it is meant to be pleasing to the eye. The headboard details can be observed from a couple of meters away focusing on the continuous pattern, or from a close distance. Winston is meant to integrate itself into the orchestra of intentional and unintentional details that surround people; the folds on the duvet cover; the art on the wall; the objects on the nightstand and their coincidental composition.

Last but not least Winston is an homenage to inspiring icons such as the Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe and the chesterfield sofa which have sustainably shaped the furniture landscape since their introduction.

Introducing: The Oskar Collection

Oct 2, 2014

After some time, effort and careful refinement, we would like to introduce our latest upholstery collection.

 

Oskar was designed for people that appreciate a classic modern sofa typology. The sofa consists of an upholstered hardwood and engineered wood frame, generously padded with foam and covered in fabric or leather. The body holds four cushions – two for the seat and two for the back. The cushions are constructed of a number of high resiliency foams with different densities and softness’s for optimal comfort. The sum of elements results in a balanced and grounded appearance that can easily integrate itself into various environments.

Besides clarity and simplicity in design, functionality was very important in the development of Oskar. It is available in 16 distinct components with a vast amount of sectional configuration options as well as standalone pieces. All covers are removable and therefore easy to clean. Separate covers will be available for purchase in spring 2015.

Introducing: The Expanded Blanche Collection

Sep 13, 2014

Comments Off

The name “Blanche” is derived from French and means “white”. Besides the phonetic beauty of the word, it is meant to highlight the composition of natural materials used such as feathers, Belgian linen and solid birch wood.

 

The collection is generously proportioned, with deep seating and a higher back profile, resulting in an inviting and comfortable seating experience. It is available in two ways; with a linen slipcover or classically upholstered. The first lends to a more casual, relaxed feel and esthetic. The second has a more formal aesthetic with its tailored cover and is available in our complete range of fabric options.

The extension to a total amount of 17 components makes Blanche a highly flexible program with a vast amount of sectional configuration options. Certain configurations can be created in multiple ways, allowing spaces with entrance restrictions to fit bigger sectionals by using smaller components. That being said, a large 3×4 seat sectional can be created with two, three or four pieces.

Marimekko Kukkuluuruu Mug – Buy it here

 

Are you discouraged from making homemade pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving because having a quarter can of pumpkin puree leftover is unsettling? Here’s a solution… Make pumpkin Kahlúa coffee with it, obviously. Add 1 Tbsp. of the pumpkin puree to your mug with 1 oz of Kahlúa and two or three pinches of ground cinnamon. Mix it all together and fill the mug with your favourite coffee. Add cream, milk or sugar to taste and top it off with some whipped cream and another sprinkling of cinnamon. Enjoy!
