Soren Tables by Refuge

This pair of end tables is a particular favorite from a new collection by French furniture company Refuge: sandy-stained natural oak shaped into drums, with layers subtracted from the middle.* Refuge makes its clean yet earthy range of furniture—mostly pale wood, white fur, and gray upholstery—in Megève, located in the Savoie region near Switzerland (hence that upscale chalet vibe).

Felt-maker Paula Leen handling felt fabrics

Sneak Peek: 'A World Apart'

Our July/August 2012 issue, on newsstands now, turns the spotlight on designers' own homes across the globe. One of my favorite projects in the issue is Paula Leen and Kees Middendorp's home in the northern Dutch province of Friesland, which I visited last winter and profiled in the magazine in "A World Apart." Leen, a felt-maker, and Middendorp, the town of Akkrum's harbormaster, showed me around their marina-side home, which they'd lived in for 16 years as renters before getting the opportunity to buy and renovate it. The resulting space has an aesthetic that is strongly influenced by their surroundings—all gray and black and white, "the colors of Friesland," as Leen puts it. It's filled with Leen's handmade felt pieces, salvaged vintage furniture, and custom iron fixtures, including an 11-foot-long kitchen island and a staircase that connects the upstairs living space with the downstairs workshop. Check dwell.com Sunday to read the full story. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek and some choice quotes from Leen.
