Shimna is a lovely mystery. They have managed to create a whole new look and feel for the most basic of shapes and materials, creating pieces that are boxy but feminine, rough but cozy...
Their design tension arises out of surprising juxtapositions -- think BDDW, De La Espada and Conran rolled into one.
The Shimna collection is carefully edited and ranges from armchairs and dining tables to the eye-catching Beam Sofa with its 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.
