Tribal Shift

Native Americans were inspired by the shifting seasons, so are we.

No time feels more “right”, for a business built on the legacy of the fireplace and hearth, than fall.

We are so excited to bring you new collections inspired by the colors, and the textures all around us this time of year. One of our stories for fall is the continuation of our Tribal Shift theme. Introduced this past summer, with an emphasis on Lapis, Turquoise and Cobalt, the colors being to deepen, and reflect the colors of changing leaves, richer sunsets, and cracking fire.

leather, goat fur and velvet are unlikely, yet perfect companions.

We love how native patterns combine with rich, luxurious fabrics like velvet to create textural contrasts. The tribes used the skins and fur of the animals that they lived with to create goods. We continue that practice using natural and synthetic materials to create throws, pillows, and even upholstery for chairs.

The shift indoors means more entertaining at home, and we have introduced a number of new items, from hand wrought blacksmith candleholders, to carved soapstone bowls  – Perfect for the gathering table.

The tribal shift can also be seen in more refined interiors, where the colors of fall combine with subtle textures on textiles such as pillows for the sofas.

Even in more neutral rooms, the tribal shift can be felt. Animal prints and actual hair-on-hides bring a natural elegance to modern spaces, and keep them from feeling to cold and sterile. Stone, iron and sun-baked woods also bring rich texture to the space.

We love the contrast between bold color and crisp white. They are the perfect foils for each other, and notice how its all in the mix. Not too much of any one pattern or color so as to not overwhelm the eye, and become too “theme driven”.

Whether through dramatic color, or daring texture, the Tribal Shift is happening.

Feel the movement.
