When it comes to interior design, I have a strong preference for contemporary decor with a soft neutral palette.
But with a twist.
As much I like contemporary pieces for their elegance and modern appeal, sometimes when put together, they can appear a bit cold and clinical. So to balance off chic minimalistic furniture, I like the idea of introducing wooden and oriental accents in a room. I just feel that adding a few rustic wood pieces and interesting Asian decor elements to a monochromatic room adds a great deal of warmth and personality.
When I recently furnished my apartment, I discovered Artemano, a Laval-based furniture company specialised in high quality exotic wood. Their stores are filled with beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces made out of reclaimed wood from India, Thailand and Indonesia. The old wood (either rosewood, suar, teak, mango or acacia) is re-purposed into various collections all exquisite for their unique aesthetic and fine craftsmanship.
To complete the decor, Artemano also has a nice collection of accessories such as stylish pierced metal lamps, ornate mirrors, hand carved buddha heads and exotic bedding collections.
