Gone are the days when dining tables were only stylish if they were high-gloss and high maintenance. Urban rustic trends which make use of natural materials are now very popular. Rustic designs have a matte, unadulterated finish that is appealing to the eye. They not only create a warm, comforting aura, they also add a gorgeous accent to both interior and exterior spaces. The Rough Table is a perfect illustration of the transitional nature of wooden décor and its ability to merge well into modern settings.
Sectional seats became increasingly popular at the end of the 20th century. They emphasize minimalism and flaunt solid geometric shapes. Their versatility and continuity is unmatched as they tend to emulate different furniture pieces. They complete contemporary living rooms beautifully. Modular sofas like the Reef Sofa often comprise similar or disparate modular units that can be organized in many ways. They have innovative features such as power recliners and ample storage. They perfectly merge comfort, functionality, and convenience.
The role that photography plays in disseminating and even shaping architecture has long been under scrutiny, perhaps now more than ever as the effort required for anybody to snap a photo and share it worldwide has decreased to almost nothing.
With that in mind, we hoped to find out what it takes to create photos that really do justice to the architecture they depict. We asked architects to write a few words about the photographers they trust most to document their projects, and the response we got revealed not only architects’ incredible gratitude toward their favorite photographers, but in many cases deep friendships and even collaborative relationships which drive both architect and photographer to greater heights.
