Several years ago, I came across a gorgeous store in Stockholm called Spiti. Everything in this store caught my eye, but specially a brown-washed sliding barn door. It then crossed my mind that this door would be beautiful in any modern home. For example the barn door could separated the living room space from the adjoining room. Or you could even use the door as a table. Well, you can use it to almost everything. I love the contrast between rustic and raw compared to the chic and polished design. There’s something about the contrast that I think just works, modern and rustic, soft and rough.
The charm of this furniture is that each instance is unique and has its own history, also it feels just right in time to work with materials that are usually recycled!
