I have a new furniture crush – and for once it is not even a Danish (or Scandinavian) design, but in fact Australian. Say hi to SOL, a minimalist furniture collection created by Australia-based designer Sarah Ellison.
The collection, which includes sofas, lounge chairs, tables, and shelving, focus mainly on sculptural forms with warm materials and colors. I am a huge fan of the chunkiness that gives all the piece a grounding quality, paired with the lightness of the thin tabletops and seats on the chairs. The pieces are inspired by vintage 1970s designs, heavily playing on proportions and scale, which I believe we will see a whole lot of in the future. It might not be the boldest 70s design you’ll see today, but it will pair well with modern design I am sure.
SOL is available in Australia and in the US via Hawkins New York.
