Barreveld International’s home accessories and furnishings marry classic Old European elegance with contemporary design. Based in New York City, the company offers a full range of home and garden accessories — elaborate iron-and-wood chandeliers and other lighting, filigree mirrors with distressed elements, antique-looking birdhouses, upholstered Louis XVI chairs, silvery decanters ... need we go on? — created from natural and traditional materials. For fans of Scandinavian design, company founder Rene Barreveld has created DK Living: an ultra-contemporary collection just as far-ranging and exhaustive as its more established sibling. From sturdy wooden tables and kitchen cabinets to domed serving platters, Barreveld products bring a sense of history to every room of your home.
Nothing inspires (and rewards) hard work like a beautiful office—and if that office is in your home, this is doubly true. Set a cerebral, stylish tone with Soicher Marin's vintage map prints and astrology charts; add a stately vibe with Barreveld's slanted-top Reservations Desk; and light it all up with Holly Hunt's La Lampe Gras collection, which elegantly evokes the Industrial Era.
To create a rustic, industrial look that doesn't leave your home feeling like a factory (or a farm), you'll need to deploy a combination of materials. For example, hang a metal pendant light over a table set with wood-handled knives and a milk jug filled with flowers. Or, in a seating area, accent a walnut bookcase with zinc-framed mirrors, glass canisters, and a mercury glass vase. The magic is in the mix.
Give your design a fresh vibe, even when it's cold outside
