Collection Particuliere has an impressive collection of modern objects and furniture. I appreciate the exploration of combining different materials. Natural stone in different types add a sense of heft to the objects and are used to anchor some. The SUMO coffee table caught my attention with the integration of two materials it is visually pleasing. I also like the embedded fruit bowl, the lattice work lets the viewer see what is in the bowl without having to look into it.
Modern design is a concept that I believe TREKU understands. I admire the clean lines and simple geometric shapes that make up the body of their furniture. For the most part I am partial to mid century design but I am drawn to these designs, especially the side boards both tall and low. The muted colors used are nice and the accent of color inside the boxes adds a nice signature element. I enjoyed looking through their website as they do a nice job and putting their pieces in real life images.
NAUT has a wonderful way of expressing minimal design in both furniture and interiors. I ran across some of their design on Tumble and then found their website. They have some great interiors in “projects”. The salons are some of my favorite interiors. What intrigues me the most is the honesty, honesty in materials. There is nothing hidden these pieces are so minimal they stand on their own with shape and material. I typically don’t get that excited about oak but the white oak pieces in their work are beautiful.
Modern History is an outstanding mid century store in Melbourne. How do I know it is outstanding? I follow them on Facebook and just about every photo of their store and inventory is top rate. The store front itself is quite nice, having some of the features of mid century architecture. Floors, stone walls and glass entry way make me think of a well designed mcm home. Modern History doesn’t have a full functioning website just yet but make sure to like their page to see all of the eye candy.
Capperidi Casa has an amazing mid century show room in Modena Italy. I recently discovered them instagram and instantly intrigued. I am a sure sucker for a store that takes pride in setting up groupings of furniture. There is a great selection of mid century furniture, lighting and accessories. Not only is it fun to look through all of their offerings but you can gain an eduction. Well done Capperidi Casa.
Galerie Kreo produces and showcases original work by Contemporary designers in a different rage of mediums. I came across their website and was instantly drawn to their “SHOWS”. The displays that are produced to highlight these designers are quite pleasing to look at and probably even better in person. The statement “operating like a ‘design laboratory” dedicated to research” is consistent with the term “Contemporary designers” as the designers are experimenting as they design.
