À La Mode.

Eliana TomazComment
This year, furniture trends embrace Nature, or rather, natural looks quite well. Oak is indeed à la mode, though I can't imagine my house with a piece of furniture all in such finish. I always have the feeling a console in natural oak is unfinished.

Anyway, a few years ago, back in 2008, I saw this piece by Miguel Vieira Batista for TemaHome in London. LOVE FIRST SIGHT! Elegant and quite contemporary, this sideboard is indeed a feature piece. The detail which in my opinion makes the piece special is not the laser cute flower (designed with paper folding technique) BUT the rectangular oak feet.

Oak details make natural looks, indeed!
