News__ Hilla Shamia: Aluminum + Wood

November 08, 2013 | By

Rustic meets modern

Using all flat, shiny surfaces in modern designs can get pretty boring sometimes. For her latest furniture series, designer Hilla Shamia avoids that homogenous look by combining the organic shapes of wood with metal's smooth finish. By casting an aluminum base directly into the crevices of a sliced tree trunk, Shamia enhances the wood’s natural form, all while creating a really nice color contrast of silver against golden grain.

But really, the pieces speak for themselves.
