Joe Manus proudly named his company after a black eye, which tells you a little bit about this designer’s aesthetic: tough, uncompromising, visionary. With a focus on sustainable, responsible manufacturing, the boldly modern furniture of Shiner is made from recycled steel and cardboard, while the plywood comes solely from new-growth timbers and the hardwoods are rescued from landfills. High-yield and low-energy practices are the hallmarks of Shiner chairs and tables, but the best part is the stunning, architectural beauty of each piece in the U.S.-made Shiner collection.
No room is complete without the perfect hanging light. To that end, these illuminated finds will beautifully transform your space.
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).
Zuo Era’s furnishings are the ultimate transition pieces that'll tie a room together — they’ll mend perfectly with both classic and contemporary design schemes. High-quality materials, rich textures, and a subtly rustic feel add up to livable style.
Done right, a safari decor theme is rich and elegant. The key is restraint: Choose one or two focal pieces for visual impact, like a rustic teak table or a natural-finish wood platform bed. Then finish the look with personality-filled accents like a wooden animal-head wall sculpture or a whimsical elephant ottoman. Keep the rest of the room minimal: A subdued palette of solids, in earthy or black-and-white tones, is an ideal backdrop.
