Leather design ideas for modern refuges in nature.
When was the last time you disconnected from everything and really enjoyed your surroundings?
For those who live in big cities, staying away from the phone isn't always enough to leave the interference out, so you can also change the setting.
The search for refuges that are more connected to nature increases as our lives become more and more urban. And when you can't go to a cabin in the woods or on the beach, you can bring these natural and sustainable elements into your home with furniture and decor choices.
Design is able to take comfort to secluded places and, at the same time, bring this experience to our daily lives with textures, formats, and references.
Architect Javier Campos' angular home by Campos Studio, for example, is completely surrounded by trees and offers breathtaking views of Vancouver Island, but the interior doesn't lose to any industrial loft.
When the refuge is made for promoting concentration and ending creative block, an office in the woods like this Harrison Design's project unites the functional with the extremely pleasant. The keywords to describe this place are tranquility and comfort, easily provided by nature and an Eames chair.
But if seclusion is really about leaving everything behind, choose a place in the heights. The Woodnest Treehouse of the Norwegian firm Helen & Hard offers a unique experience of belonging to nature in a suspended cabin built after a terrain study and with zero impact on the environment.
To top it off, the leather furniture was handcrafted by a local and traditional brand.
The place that reminds us of tranquility doesn't always need to be so far from our routine. The solution found by Daniel and Estrellita Brodsky was to unite a farm to a modern house near NYC. In addition to raising animals and growing food, they balance the rural atmosphere with contemporary pieces by Le Corbusier, a Jorge Zalszupin’s leather chair, and ageless Easy Armchairs by Pierre Jeanneret.
For those seeking a natural paradise with all the modern comfort, the inspiration lies in the Bowen island house created by the Vancouver-based office Mcfarlane Biggar Architects, the omb. To build with a minimal footprint, the walls have been replaced by windows, allowing natural light in until sunset, and the same care is maintained inside. Leather furniture was not chosen without purpose, ensuring durability, comfort, and low maintenance.
