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.
Named for its hands-on approach to design, this Austin-based company works with artisans around the world to create custom designs using sustainable materials. A rustic, subtly vintage-feeling aesthetic defines the lot.
We love the combination of wood and white, because it automatically creates a subtle, rustic-yet-modern aesthetic in any room: it’s a design yin-yang that’ll work well in practically any area of your home. We’ve got options here for everything from bed and bath, to living room, to kitchen and even the home office.
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).
An updated-classic look that’s sophisticated yet eminently livable: That’s the look that defines the modern-day Brooklyn brownstone. We’ve put together a selection of furnishings, bedding, lighting, art, and accents that are inspired by this aesthetic. Each piece is distinguished by its attention to detail, texture, and structure.
