Our unplanned focus this week on Art Nouveau and Art Deco has whetted our appetites to see the latest introduction from the @ family, including @ and @, among others. If you’re not yet familiar with the brand names included in this Portuguese collective, you’ve probably seen some of their imaginative contemporary designs, most of which are unabashedly maximalist. But more than just glittering surfaces and dramatic shapes, the brand partners under the Covet House umbrella use techniques and skills passed down through generations of craftspeople, combined with state-of-the-art production to create furniture and lighting that is edgy, emotional, and engaging.
The dramatic flourish, that little extra curve or detail is what, in our minds, connects some of our favorite pieces from these brands to both Art Nouveau and Art Deco/Art Moderne designs. There are no “period pieces” in their catalogs, rather it’s the mood, the craftsmanship, and the creative flair that makes some of their pieces stylistic descendants. ••
So we’re going to make their stands @ one of first stops of the day. Just look at some of these details!
