TEN INSPIRED DESIGNS THAT TURN DÉCOR NORMS INTO ARTWORK

EDITED BY MATT SCANLON

Parachute Linen Venice Set
Crafted from pure flax, this set gives the casual look of linen in a warm hue. Spun in northern Portugal in a family owned factory each piece is garment dyed and washed in small batches, creating a unique color and soft texture that is free of harsh chemicals and synthetics. Part of the profits are donated to the United Nations’ Nothing But Nets malaria control campaign, which has delivered 12 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics and treatment. $399

Karou Side Table
Tabletops have to handle books, magazines, drinks…devices. This side table created by Germany based designers Studio Böttger lets you store things inside. Its circular shape encourages sliding the lower panel around, revealing a hidden chamber, while the upper panel stays locked in place for safety. Built from ash wood, with a pronounced grain that gives the simple black or light gray finish added depth. Price TBA

Deauville Dog House
The Deauville mimics a traditional dog house shape, but with an extended roofline on one side and built from premium materials like powder coated steel that will stand up to decades of use. There’s also an elongated window for ventilation, and multiple slits in the roof to let in light. $300
