Bleu Nature designs revolve around the tides, so to speak. Every year, an annual beachcombing for driftwood supplies the material central to their collection of home furniture and accessories. This year’s bounty of driftwood designs, which was shown at Maison & Objet, is revealed in pronounced curves, polar whites, and wave-washed stones and timber.
For over a decade, Bleu Nature has combined French craftsmanship with the found object to create unique, organic pieces for the home. Based on driftwood, the furniture, lighting, and accessories also incorporate hemp, pebbles, stones, flat rocks, raw linen, boiled wool, and petrified wood.
The materials are mostly raw and unprocessed, lending a natural feel to the collection. From beach to bedroom, each piece is an encounter with nature and the “l’esprit matière.” Design elements mimic natural shapes, like the elliptical Kuukku lamp pictured at the top. All of Bleu Nature lamps, wall sconces, and luminaries edge on a contemporary look, but retain the aged qualities of the materials, creating warm, intimate indoor environments.
