Named for its hands-on approach, this Austin-based company works with artisans around the world to create custom designs using sustainable materials. In 1991, on an Eat-Pray-Love fest of self-discovery, founder Brett Hatton set off to retrace the ancient Silk Road between China and Europe. He found so many antique treasures, furniture items and rare devices in Pakistan and India that his future path became clear: he set up a furniture business to bring his finds to the world. In addition to its eponymous line, Four Hands makes five other collections of furnishings and lighting, including Bina, Boulevard, Old Java, Architects & Heroes, and Bluefish; they are also the exclusive North American distributor for furnishings by Esquire Home.
Sleek silhouettes, steely hues, and the occasional hit of energetic print: These furnishings and accents would all look perfectly at home in a downtown loft (and, by the way, they’d add sophisticated, urbane style to wherever you live, even if it’s a ways from downtown).
A rustic, subtly vintage-feeling aesthetic defines these lighting pieces... they've got a globally inspired, world-traveled feel, and are bound to add plenty of personality to any room.
Get inspired by these illuminated finds: Whether you choose a floor or table lamp, or an overhead design, the options on offer here possess an aesthetic that’s subtly rustic and vintage-feeling, yet fresh and contemporary at once. They’ll fit into a variety of spaces, either as a counterpoint to a modern design scheme or a complement to a classic one.
