Our Top Picks: Objet Noir

 

From vessels to interesting objects, accessories are what bring personal touches into a space. When looking to make a strong impact, less is more; choose a few items with bold color and interesting shape versus too many. In our years of practice, nothing cuts through a tablescape or bookcase like a stroke of black. Leave the tchotchkes at grandma’s house and let a dark silhouette make a strong statement with our top picks below:

On Site with Rethink

We’d love to think that most of our work is done in our chic new studio, creative juices flowing and sketchpad always at hand. However, our real strength comes in the execution; the ability to provide quality control while on site and to make sure that the ‘creative juices’ get turned into a real, tangible space that goes above and beyond our clients’ expectations. To give you a further look into our typical day to day, we’ve put together a few snapshots taken these past few weeks that give tribute to the real magic: seeing our designs come to life.

Living With The Butcher

 

Living with the Butcher - Rethink Design Studio Blog

 

As our much-anticipated butcher shop project breaks ground this week, we were inspired to bring you the fundamental elements of our design in the form of a farm-fresh living space. In true Savannah style, kick back in those classic Hunter boots on an industrial coffee table while getting face to face with a longhorn – it’s what’s for dinner.

 

 

1. Set the tone more towards sophisticated than barnyard-chic with Cisco’s Spider Chandelier. Spanning an impressive 72″, the large fixture can fill a room without seeming too heavy.

2. Always have the fields on your mind even when inside with a geometric planter from Light & Ladder. Try filling with a low-maintenance variety like jade or a common succulent.

3. Take fancy farm living head on with this stunning photographic print from on of our favorite art sources, The Animal Print Shop. Use a minimal mat with a 1-inch frame for a contemporary look that maximizes impact.

4. Fourhands’ Shadow Box Coffee Table is the perfect mixture between open and closed storage. Keep clutter at bay within its two metal drawers and showcase your latest parsley collection underneath the solid glass top. For more info on how to purchase, contact us here.

5. Bring home the classic textiles of the wild West with the Jack Chair by Schoolhouse Electric Co. Its black and white buffalo check with splayed hardwood legs are a subtle nod to mid-century design with a scale appropriate for modern interiors.

6. Inspired by classic Scandinavian textiles, these woven baskets from Bo Concept remind us of the local arts and crafts movement surrounding rural areas. We picture a set of three huddled to hold spare throw blankets for when the nights get cool.

7.  What’s a posh pasture without leather? West Elm’s Hamilton Sofa sits atop solid poplar legs and is made of premium top-grain leather that only gets more comfortable over time.

8. Leah Singh’s Bar Colorado pillow is fitting for this room alone just by it’s name; but it’s not the play on words that sold us in to this living room essential. Made of 100% wool embroidery on a cotton base with canvas backing, this natural wonder is reminiscent of farmland topography from bird’s eye view and adds just the right amount of interest without being too busy.

9. Tie (or lasso) your living space together with a nice chunky neutral rug like this one from Anthropologie. The hand-knotted wool pays subtle tribute to a small herd of sheep and is likely to feel just as soft underfoot.
