LOCAL MATTER

This past Sunday was such a gorgeous day we took a drive upstate to get away from the city—at least for a few hours. Of course we also took advantage of the day trip to search for some of those wonderful hidden treasures the Hudson Valley has to offer. And what a treasure we found as we walked into Materia Locus (Latin for local matter) — this amazing barn-turned-showroom/gallery with a beautiful collection of furniture, lighting, art and the most incredible industrial antiques from the area. Megan Summerville and Matt Ensner merged their expertise in fashion, movement arts, environmental conservation and landscape design to create this artists' co-op and home design store “born out of their quest for specialized objects that compliment and highlight their eclectic approach to living.” It was truly an unexpected treat to come across this new gem, especially after chit chatting with Megan for a while and getting to know a little bit about them and their cool design vision.

A CONSCIOUS RENOVATION

What happens when you outgrow your apartment? In the case this New York family of five, buying the loft above theirs and merging them to create this 3,600 stunner was the perfect move. They implemented several eco-friendly solutions and sustainable materials like recycled denim as insulation into the renovation. Granted the final result is to dye for, but I can't stop drooling over their amazing collection of mid-century chairs—one more beautiful than the other.

DESIGN ON WHEELS

This super chic little caravan puts cool back into camping. Danish company Design Camp recovers old retro caravans and refurbishes them to give them a second chance on life. After an impressive and much-deserved restoration, the trailers are transformed into modern mini boutique hotels on wheels equipped with custom bunk beds, graphic wallpaper and a trendy decor. Not a bad incentive to go on a road trip.

MIXING AT ITS BEST

Tucked away deep into Segovia's dense forest, this lovely country house is the ultimate example of sustainable construction. The living room, with breathtaking countryside views, is a mid-century modern heaven with clever touches of rustic decor. Many of their beautiful treasures come from flea markets, like the cool desk from the 50s under the stairs. But others, believe or not, come from IKEA, like the red floor lamp, red dining chairs and glossy black kitchen cabinets. Talk about knowing how to be resourceful and mixing styles creatively.

MOUNTING TREASURES

If you like the look of taxidermy but the animal-friendly form of this art, you will fall in love with this eccentric Bicycle Taxidermy by Regan Appleton. Many sleepless nights at the Royal College of Art and a homesickness for the rugged Scottish highlands, inspired Regan to take his father’s once prized but long discarded mountain and road bikes and mount the handle bars on a European oak plaque to turn them in rather unique taxidermy. How cool are these? For sure they'd make a wonderful piece or art for your wall.

SIT DOWN WITH NOBODY

Danish design company Hay never stops to amaze me. I fell in love with their furniture and accessory collection when I visited their flagship store in Copenhagen, and now I'm crushing on Nobody—an industrially produced chair made strictly from textile. The chair is molded in one piece and in one single process, resulting in a light weight and stackable chair meeting modern demands of sustainability in both materials and production. Its design is inspired by a piece of cloth used over a chair to protect it. Using a technique borrowed from the car industry, the Nobody chair is manufactured from a 100 % recyclable material made from used water and soda bottles. Amazingly, the production process neither requires an internal frame, plastic, screws, glue or any other type of reinforcements. I'm a big fan of this chair's modish vibe and the powerful statement it can make in a room.
