GAUCHO

Designed by:
Art Hide

Why we love it: Handcrafted from pieces of the finest Argentine hide, ‘Gaucho’ is all about laid back classic. We love how the natural hide patterns are arranged to create an earthy gradient.

PADDLE

Designed by: Benjamin Hubert for Fabbian

Why we love it: An LED lamp with a pressed aluminium head and Ash timber stand. ‘Paddle’ has an axis of functional movement inspired by the 360-degree movement of a canoe blade through water, making it beautiful and highly functional.

CAPE

Designed by: Konstantin Grcic for Established & Sons

Why we love it: Inspired by dustsheets thrown over furniture in hotels and country estates, ‘Cape’ has a sense of mystery and casual elegance about it. With an interchangeable overlay cover, it’s also one of the most versatile sofas around.

MORPH LOUNGE

Why we love it: The reclining angle and combination of upholstered shell with solid timber frame of these lounge chairs makes them very inviting! They also have a lovely lightness to them, with the solid body of the chair hovering on slender legs.
