WOODLAND ESCAPE

July 17, 2019

While beaches are often the first thing that comes to mind when we think of summer vacations, many prefer a tranquil visit to the woodlands to escape the hustle and bustle of life in the city. Whether you’re designing a contemporary cabin, a mid-century hideaway, or a more traditional summer home, the right interior makes all the difference in creating a serene space to immerse yourself in nature. This week, we’re featuring five designs to elevate your space into the perfect woodland wonderland.
PP225 FLAG HALYARD
Hans J. Wegner, 1950
With a frame made of solid stainless steel and 240 meters of specially-developed flag line forming the seat and back, the Flag Halyard chair takes on an identity all its own. Despite having obvious preferences for wood, Hans J. Wegner once again brings his bold and courageous appetite for creating to the forefront with this innovative lounge chair. The design pays tribute to the early modernists such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer, and proves that Wegner masters steel with the same conclusive elegance as he masters wood. Flag Halyard is perfect for lounge spaces, whether you’re enjoying the company of friends or curled up in front of the fireplace. An optional sheepskin throw adds warmth and comfort for the cool woodland nights, while also adding a tasteful sense of luxury.
ADNET MIRROR
Jacques Adnet, 1950
In the year 1950, designer Jacques Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house, Hermès, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. Accordingly, he made a round leather mirror with brass hinges inspired by this exciting collection. Though the Adnet Round mirrors were designed almost 7 decades ago, their accents, details, and shape allow them to feel incredibly at home with contemporary trends and modern styles. The Adnet Round mirrors are available with black, tan, or olive leather from Florence, Italy and feature solid brass hardware.
KANT TABLE
Craig Bassam and Scott Fellows, 2014
There is something unequivocally harmonious about dark, natural wood reflected throughout the interior of a home situated within a woodland setting, allowing the patterns, colors, and textures of nature to transcend into your space. The Kant Table is the ideal dining table to bring this concept to life, and create a true sense of time and space in your woodland escape. Originally designed for a private commission project, this table is perfect for both large or more intimate meals with family and friends as you enjoy a much-needed weekend away from the city. Available in solid walnut, white oak, or ash, and in a variety of sizes to fit 6, 8, 10, or 12 seats.
POLLOCK BOWL
Dan Pollock, 2012
The perfect addition to any coffee table, dining table, or side table, the Pollock Bowls bring the organic, rustic warmth of the woods into your interior space. Each bowl is unique, one-of-a-kind and hand-carved, made from recycled wooden stumps found in the forest of California. Designer Dan Pollock is a passionate woodsman and environmentalist, whose designs are inspired by the tranquility of the forests near his Southern California home.  As he sands and smooths the wood, Pollock seeks to reveal each piece's own gentle, aged lines, describing his creative process: "my sculptures are sometimes for the sake of art and sometimes function, often both. In any case, each sculpture has its own charm and appeal."
DUETTO
Hanna Korvela, 1997
Duetto was designer Hanna Korvela’s international breakthrough. The recipient of the prestigious Red Dot: Best of the Best award, Duetto is made of a remarkable combination of cotton and paper yarn, whose qualities and textures compliment each other beautifully. While paper yarn gives the rugs body and rhythm, cotton brings warmth and softness. Simple and minimalist, Duetto retains a unique sense of warmth that elevates any environment into an inviting space, and is the perfect rug to provide exceptional comfort as you kick off your shoes and step into your woodland haven. Hand-woven in Finland and designed for reversible use, Duetto is available in a wide range of colors.
