Humble wood and bamboo updated
Succumb to a nature inspired and luxurious environment, enriched by diverse tropical plants, evoking an atmosphere that is both intimate and primordial. It is a rural, rarefied luxury, punctuated with artisanal and elegantly refined wood and bamboo.
FORWARD MARCH. Poised for high speed living, Klip is a collaboration between Riva 1920 and Lamborghini using only solid wood. Completely made of solid walnut, the table top made of glued lists and smoothed edges, characterized by an asymmetrical leg with base positioned laterally. Enquire at Proof Living.
BIG FANS. Fan is a modern take of the classical Windsor chair. Its process involves spindles of wood carefully turned, thinned and steam bent to create the slatted silhouette. The wood is then stained in our new highlight colour, indigo and fitted with a black leather seat. Enquire at Tom Dixon.
HIGH FASHION. Countrified luxury is now attainable with these set of living room furniture by Milan-based designer Chiara Andreatti for Fendi. Each item is developed in a different style, for the Orient, handcrafting and natural materials, graphic patterns and decoration. Yet the seemingly disparate pieces come together as an articulate whole, a testament to the designer's elegant hand. The range also includes a concrete planter, carpet, sofa and metal rocking chair. Enquire at Chiara Andreatti.

ROCK ON. The classic rocking stool contemporized with deliberate style lines, the Jia Ju stool features cleanly finished joints that recall the artistry of Ming Dynasty craftsmanship in mortise and tenon joinery. Available at Scene Shang.
BOTTOMS UP. Much like an inverted glass, this rattan and bamboo table is a whimsically rustic addition to spaces indoors and out. Available at House Doctor.
HAND IN HAND. This pendant lamp is a mix of different bamboo craft technics used by the Taiwanese craftsman.
