Go With the Grain
The simplicity of wood can feel refreshingly authentic in our increasingly technology-driven world–a welcome antidote to slick surfaces and glowing screens! We’re loving every variation on this trend that balances a modern feel with this classic material. Wood is a key element in the clean & contemporary aesthetic seen below, marrying functional durability with the unique, swirling beauty of exposed grain. Think refined, rather than rustic; this high-end look seamlessly blends organic beauty and sleek modernity. Some of our favorites? The Jonathan table, where opposites attract as man-made white resin intersects with the organic beauty of teak logs. The table’s unique design reveals repeating wood rings on the surface and lengthwise cross sections of the logs along its sides. We’re also huge fans of the large Remus pendant, which reimagines the iconic midcentury saucer silhouette in a shapely mango wood frame and rich walnut stain.Are you feeling as ‘into the woods’ as we are?
