Harboring functional habitats
Inspired by regnerative forest floors and dependable minerals, the Biome collection embraces organic, sculptural forms and grounding finishes. Welcome functionality and sustainability into designs with multipurpose pieces that reclaim comforting shapes and finishes. Light, warm woods such as pine, oak, and maple lead the way, taking on gray undertones that mimic tree bark and mushroom hues.

Nurture Communal Wellness
Embodying sand and dried earthen terrain, the Nexus collection is home to holistic materials and tactile neutrals. Matte finishes enhance the depth and softness of familiar woodgrains, opening doors to flexible furniture solutions and open-plan living. Experiential finishes for warm walnut, straight-grained oak, reliable ash and distinctive elm contribute to adaptable designs.

Embracing Personal Expression
Whether restoring pieces to their former glory or playfully personalising with hints of glimmer and metallics, extravagant eras of design mingle in the Origin collection. The mismatched elements of cottagecore meet the peekaboo sheen of the 60s and 70s in dazzling brights and deep stains. Exotic wood species such as burl, mindi, primavera and mango serve as an expressive layer to these finishes, especially through smooth woodgrains and accents that add a nostalgic, vivd appearance.
