If you’re a fan of Southwestern Americana design, than the Formentera Home by Luis Galliussi is your ideal fantasy home. Featuring Mexican-esque architecture set in a hot desert climate (with cacti to boot), the interior is carefully decorated with bohemian accents. The combination of masculine elements (gray stone and reclaimed wood) and chic decor (light colored textiles and vintage furniture) gives it an effortlessly balanced aesthetic.
Modern, Industrial, and undeniably Japanese. The Wabi-Sabi aesthetic is one of many design principles of the island nation. In the Greenwich Hotel Penthouse, Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki and Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt were able to turn this prime space into a masterpiece. Large and expansive in size, yet warm and homely in texture. Rustic and old in individual decor, yet fresh and original when approached cohesively. Truly a dream home in the heart of the most desired neighborhood in all of New York City – TriBeCa.
Many architects are joining the wave of modular homes, which are efficient and ready to assemble projects. The prefabricated building system emerged in the early 20th century, with the aim of producing housing on an industrial scale. Building modular homes leverages economies of scale to offer more affordable housing.
Last month, the FROY crew had the pleasure of checking out the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in NYC. The fair took place at the Javits Center. Designed by the same man behind Paris’ Louvre, Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, the exhibit space itself was already a showcase in high modern design.
