Please go to our new link for Shimna
Shimna is a lovely mystery. Recently popping up on Lafayette street, they have managed to create a whole new look and feel for the most basic of shapes and materials. They are boxy but feminine, rough by cozy and design tension arises out of surprising juxtapostions. Think BDDW, De La Espada and Conran rolled into one.
The Shimna collection is carefully edited and small as of yet, consisting of pieces that range from armchair to dining table to the eyecatching Beam Sofa with it's blocky legs. Materials are North American hardwoods, leather and fur, and manufacturing is also in the US. Some of the wood is recycled and all finishes are natural.
Shimna also offers design services. Prices? We've put in a call but don't know yet. We expect that with stuff this nice, with options and being made in the US, it won't be cheap. (Via Design*Sponge. Thanks, Grace!)
