Design Finds – August 2019
Text: Ingrid Opstad
Whether it is natural materials like wood, stone, wool, plants or elements inspired by the outdoors, bringing nature inside is a growing trend in the interior world. We help you add a touch of nature to your living space, though either decor or furniture, to create a harmonic sanctuary.
Wood adds warmth and a natural feeling to your home. Wewood is a Portuguese joinery that uses wood from sustainable forests and environmentally friendly materials. The Mister sideboard has an elegant design which stands out for its versatility and customisation: it can be completely rearranged according to different needs allowing it to be used as a bar, a desk or simply as a sideboard.
Wewood, ‘Mister’ sideboard, €3,690
Kreoo, ‘Pavé’ stone seating system
The Pavé collection from Italian Kreoo begins with inspiration from nature, where water flows over rock, smooths and polishes it, and forms a perfect work of art in nature – the river stone. The beautiful seating system is characterised by the overlap of an oval marble base and a wood or cork seat, and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments.
Kreoo, ‘Pavé’ stone seating system, prices range from €4,000
Casarialto, ‘Kansashi Tropical’ vase
The new Casarialto collection puts us in a vibrant mood reminiscent of a tropical island and its vegetation full of bright green shades and colours. The Kansashi Tropical vase is made in transparent mouth-blown glass. It comes with two green leaves in glass inside, and can either be used on its own or with fresh greenery or flowers added. A tribute to nature, made skilfully by Venitian artisans.
Casarialto, ‘Kansashi Tropical’ vase, from €150
Zuzunaga, ‘Quaternio’ green throw
Zuzunaga creates timeless, non-gender specific and sustainable home and fashion textiles and accessories. This handwoven throw is handmade from 100 per cent merino wool. The throw is a part of the ‘Integrate: Time and Space’ collection, as a result of a collaboration with socially conscious Spanish company Teixidors, an enterprise that helps provide training, employment and support to people with a range of physical and mental disabilities, by teach-ing them the art of weaving by hand.
Zuzunaga, ‘Quaternio’ green throw, €329
Mathieu Challières, ‘Volière’ pendant lamp
We love this fun and striking pendant lamp that resembles a birdcage with life-like birds in real feathers inside a copper wire lampshade. Designed in France by Mathieu Challières, the Volière is a unique piece of contemporary design that will make an enchanting addition to any space.
Mathieu Challières, ‘Volière’ pendant lamp, from €484
