There’s nothing more timeless than a space which goes back to nature and blends into the surrounding environment. Think back to your days spent at your grandparents’ lakeside lodge or those nights roasting S’mores in a open fire pit on the beach. Wasn’t it glorious to spend time outdoors?
Now, after hours spent in front of screens or sitting in traffic, we need to do the same at home: get ourselves closer to nature, so we can take a deep breath and relax.
Luckily, if you’re the sort who appreciates true craftsmanship and the perfect imperfections created by nature, there are lots of materials found in both land and sea that are being used to produce exquisite pieces to connect you back to where it all began.
Here’s a look at some of our favorites.
BALI, made from organic water hyacinth. A free-floating aquatic plant, water hyacinth is used for making textiles, paper, and fish traps.

CALLAS, featuring gold lacquered eggshell. Made using a technique originating in Asia, this mosaic-like finish is the result of delicately cracked eggshell, meticulously placed and lacquered over.
MARRAKESH, made using hand-placed bone. Inspired by traditional Moroccan design, these pieces add an exotic appeal to the bath.
ADANA, in marbleized young pen (saltwater clam) shell. Notice the subtle iridescence in these pieces; look for this next time you’re out eating shellfish.

RHODES NERO MARBLE WITH BRASS. In classic black and white, this marble – a material that harkens back to the 1930’s – has gorgeous veining throughout and creates distinctive abstract patterns.
