In this collaboration we are blurring the lines between furniture and art. Every piece of furniture in our collections has a soul, a story to tell and we believe that showcasing our furniture and home accessories as art and collaborating with an artist who brings details and moments of life to our attention is a rich story to tell and one worth sharing.
