Picking up home pieces during their travels, they are inspired by the colours of the earth and scope out exceptional pieces that are a distinctive blend of handcraft and industry. With Dutchbone’s range, every piece has its own story to tell. Whether it’s a coffee table that’s inspired by the Asian villages ‘coffee’ corners, a stool that’s hammered metal was sourced in a village east of Delhi where the local craftsmanship couldn’t be ignored, or the beauty of rattan that grows in barren swamp areas helping to form beautiful chairs. One thing’s for sure, not two pieces are the same, and the stories behind them will raise a few eyebrows.
Their favourite materials include the naturally beautiful markings of wood (rattan, ash wood, acacia wood, solid teak, sheesham and mango wood to name a few), solid iron, copper, concrete, aluminium, cotton and vintage PU-leather. These materials all work in such harmony with each other to create natural yet industrial, and earthy yet modern designer home furnishing pieces that add so much character to the home. Dutchbone often travel to design fairs across the world to pick up unique ideas and designs, and they love to take modern trends such as concrete, herringbone flooring and the industrial look, and incorporate them into old-fashioned furniture, for instance, barn lights or school sideboards, to create these completely original and unique pieces, that catch people’s eyes. The current range consists of eclectic designer chairs, tables, seaters, cabinets, rugs, lighting and home decor (such as vases and cushions), so most area’s of the home are covered. The eclectic products are the result of a deep appreciation for natural beauty and a vast knowledge of old-world European style in a rustic eclectic combination that works exceedingly well for them. ‘Rustic Eclectic’ poses a refreshing twist on the concept of ‘bringing the outside in’, sticking to the general rule of thumb of using natural materials, but adding stand out potential through the introduction of more daring colour, pattern, and texture, in an almost bo-bohemian sense. Whether you take residence in a loft apartment in New York, a wood cabin in Alberta, a boathouse in Amsterdam or a 2 storey house in England, Dutchbone’s luxury products will not only inject a sense of wanderlust and exotica into the home, but they will bring your senses to life with their natural materials, interesting patterns and striking colours.
