Trying to move on from Ikea furniture is no easy task especially when you love Scandinavian simplicity. As a compromise, I like to venture out and find furniture in the same vein but with a little more of that "je ne sais quoi." Douglas and Bec, a family-run New Zealand company, embodies everything I find appealing about the style- light woods, sleek silhouettes, and a subtle hint of metal. All furniture is handmade by Douglas, the designer's father.
I can sit here all day envisioning these items in a bright lofty space.
