THE NARRATIVE OF NATURE A SIMPLE MOMENT THE RISING SUN
CLASSIC ANCESTRY ABSENCE & PRESENCE A GOOD TIME HOME
THE NARRATIVE OF NATURE
Inspired by the Australian landscape, a grounding connection takes form in a cleansing palette and resort-style ambience.
Wave-like forms create a meditative calm, while oversized, slouchy seating blends with crisp stone pieces and matte ceramic finishes for simplified sophistication.
Materials of natural linen, oak, travertine, and woven seagrass embody coast and country.

Nature presents in cypress green and sage, paired with a neutral palette of chalk, pebble and sand.
A SIMPLE MOMENT
Elevated neutrals and soothing textures imbue comfort and presence in a space of refined refuge.
Softened edges and gentle curvature provide clarity through pared-back design.
Textures are simplified with matte marble finishes and painted timber whilst woven finishes add tactility.

Tones of putty, soft moss, washed terracotta, barley, dusty rose and latte create a sense of tranquillity.
THE RISING SUN
Honey tones and textures embodying the warmth of the sun envelop spaces in cocooning comfort.
Channel bygone elements in a contemporary spin on traditional joinery and circular forms.
Eye-catching tactility creates intrigue through brown vein marble, soft-to-touch leather, rattan and warm grained timbers.

Warming tones of rust, clay and tan dance with toffee, soft tide and apricot reminiscent of sun-splashed days.
Restraint rules in a classic foundation. Contemporary craftsmanship and timeless forms bring an elevated existence to curated interiors.
Classic silhouettes take hold with fluted forms, art deco influence and channelling with contemporary elements at the helm.
A sophisticated curation emerges combining Carrera marble, tweed and refined detailing.

A compound of light and dark finishes adds allure in a palette of fawn, clay and antique brass.
ABSENCE AND PRESENCE
Solace is savoured in moments of grandeur, as sculptural forms are balanced with grace.
A sense of presence is met in etch detailing and carved channelling whilst sculptural shaping and exaggerated curves imbue stillness.
The smooth materiality of classic marble sits beside monolithic forms, cut pile rugs and textural weaves.

Moody grey hues, bluestone and gunmetal mix with dark oaks and snow bouclé to soothe the senses.
A GOOD TIME HOME
An unexpected blend of expressive forms and adventurous colour evokes a sense of joy and playfulness.
Optimism is evoked and expression stamped in a fusion of geometric shapes and modern & contemporary forms.
A transformative mix of coloured velvets, cosmic and green vein marble and red travertine emerges.
