DESIRABLE DESIGNS

The ever-growing interior Open your doors and enjoy the fresh air. Store away your old design pieces during your spring cleaning and replace them with some living ones instead. We should no longer be chopping trees to manufacture pretty things. These five items prove that living materials can brighten up your living room. TEXT: ARNE ADRIAENSSENS  |  PRESS PHOTOS
