There is something so warm and familiar with wood furniture and these benches are no exception. The marriage of natural wood and rope in both of these new pieces make for a perfectly unique design.
The El Portillo Cabin, designed by Spanish firm Stone Designs, really stands out against the white snow of the Javalambre ski station in Teruel, Spain. The traditional mountain cabin design was given a make-over with black paint and graffiti-style décor. The inside is refreshingly spare with the simple tables and benches and clever use of climbing rope.
The wood and rope benches from Superfolk, a design firm from Ireland, were showcased at the recent Stockholm Furniture Fair. The idea behind the stools is interchangeability as they can be rearranged in a variety of configurations. The simplicity of materials and flexible design make for a very modern décor.
