A gentle revolution is underway

Sometimes it feels like the bad news just keeps coming. Reports of social and political turmoil fill our news feeds. Between the fake news and click bait headlines it can be hard to sort the truth from the alternative facts.

It’s time to tap out. We find new joy in reviving long-held traditions. A colourful mish-mash of cultural influences ignites our sense of community.

The Kinship trend brings together a diverse mix of cultural references. Furniture forms are inspired by traditional crafts such as wood turning, knitting and sewing.

Details are informed by familiar and traditional architectural treatments, while colour is simple and uncomplicated, providing warmth without overwhelming the senses. Punctuations of red hint at Eastern influences.

Folklore revival. Kinship focuses on renewing our faith in one another and the world around us. Drown out the negative vibes and embrace truth and transparency.
