If you’re drawn to simple, elegant furniture inspired by Old European design traditions, look no further than Zentique. Based in Georgia, Zentique uses unpainted wood, recycled metals, and organic materials to create furnishings that reinterpret French Country designs; one of the company’s elegant sofas is even named the Louis XVI, after the famously deposed French monarch. Though inspired by antique, classic styles, Zentique furniture also possesses a modern, industrial aesthetic: Tables, chairs, counter stools, and other practical pieces feature minimal ostentation and would look as appropriate in a Stockholm flat as in an Aix-en-Provance cottage. And Zentique’s range of lighting options spans both the continents and the centuries, from the antique-looking Paris Wall Clock to the contemporary-looking Bamboo Basket Hanging Light.
Metallic accents pull a room together and give it polish (literally and figuratively). We’ve put together a mix of vases, bowls, candlesticks, and more here; all possess sculptural lines and uncommon details. And, by the way, don’t be afraid to choose both gold and silver tones — the art, after all, is in the mix.
A decidedly downtown, subtly industrial-chic vibe defines this selection of furnishings and accents. Call the look Soho Loft. The key to creating this aesthetic is to mix textures (metal and dark wood, for example) and go with neutral tones. Here, you’ll find everything from furniture to art and accents — we’ve curated the look for you, so you can choose what inspires you and come up with your own take on urban-boho style.
Letters are most commonly known as the basic building blocks of words and sentences. But, if you take away the semantic connection and dress them up a little bit, they can actually be design statements. With that in mind, we’ve put together a letter-focused collection of items — from monogrammed towels to rustic metal initials — that put linguistics in a sophisticated new light.
Letters are most commonly known as the basic building blocks of words and sentences. But, taken singly, they can be design statements. With that in mind, we’ve put together a collection of items — from monogrammed towels to rustic metal initials — in which these ubiquitous characters are stylishly transformed.
