Luxurious Juxtapositions

World of Material Contrasts at Dooq

Mention "Portugal" with "furniture" and you are likely to see images of traditional designs in solid wood and perhaps cork.  To prove them wrong, Lisbon-based design brand Dooq has created a collection of furniture that thrives on unexpected contrasts in styles, shapes and materials.  

A sense of luxury runs through the entire collection, especially in the use of contrasting materials.  The block-shaped Panorama armchair, for example, recalls the monumental buildings of the Brutalist era, albeit livened up with asymmetric armrests and Art Deco style metallic details, all swathed in luscious velvet.  The Dolce Vita console table has a solid wood top supported by two pill-shaped pillars made of four different types of marble and metal trims, whilst the Havana armchair has a curvaceous solid wood frame set against a lacy woven mesh panel and opulent upholstery.  For unabashed indulgence look no further than the Bonnie & Clyde coffee table, with its solid marble construction and sculptural shape.  

This delightfully eclectic collection is a testament to the best design and craftsmanship Portugal has to offer; perfect for adding a touch of glamour and luxury to any design scheme.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.
