new winter collection from French design firm Bleu Nature draws from a palette of the most calming, inviting blues you'll ever see. And the textures—plush quilted velvets; glossy lacquers; smooth driftwood—represent manipulated nature at its best.
The French design firm, whose wall coverings and lighting we've featured in the past, has created a gorgeous marriage of natural materials with high-design concepts. The combination of driftwood with quilted fabric pairs intricate man-made craftsmanship with nature's own intricate forms. Driftwood branches encased in blocks of resin make beautiful occasional tables, creating the feel of a serene beach landscape, but with a refined aesthetic.
