Fine Furnishings Make Spaces More Welcoming, Naturally!
Biophilic design is growing in popularity because it points towards a key aspect of how we relate to our surroundings. At heart, we humans are just as much a part of nature as our animal cousins. It makes sense that we enjoy spending time in a more natural environment highlighted by products derived from plants and natural minerals. Biophilic design is the opposite of a radical idea and as comfortingly familiar as a wooden cabinet, a sofa featuring comfortable natural fibers, or a porcelain sculpture or vase with potted plants or flowers.
Think about how you feel about eating off plates made of porcelain or touching cotton or wool fabrics in comparison to eating off plastic plates or sitting on a sofa or chair made from obviously synthetic fabrics. That’s because, despite industrialization, natural products with origins that go back to the most ancient times make us feel more at home.
Natural Materials are Naturally Better
Classic furniture and accessories from Naurelle use many of the same components that have been in use since the dawn of human civilization: wood, marble, quartz (still one of the world's most abundant minerals), silver, gold, and bronze – an alloy which marked a turning point for humanity when it was first used circa 3300 BC. Our accessories catalogs include a large assortment of classically styled bronze sculptures set above marble and quartz bases, as well as gorgeous vases made from the finest porcelain and decorated with rich floral designs.
Wool fabric products may date back to about 4000 BC. Cotton has been used in fabrics in the Middle East, China, and Mexico since roughly 2500 BC. Porcelain’s history goes back to China in 3300 BC but it likely took at least 2000 more years before it became a common site in the finest European households. Porcelain appears to have been unknown in Europe before legendary Italian merchant explorer Marco Polo may have brought dishes, cups, and vases back to his home in Venice. The new material eventually supplanted the wooden cups, plates, and bowls used in medieval Europe and came to be known as china thanks to its Asian roots.
