One of my top picks from the Las Vegas 2018 Winter Furniture Market is an Australian company that specializes in rugs, wall décor, and soft furnishings. Australian sisters Kura Perkins and Bree Hay-Hendry are the creative forces behind Aussie businesses gone-global, Art Hide and Amigos de Hoy.
The duo’s unique aesthetic, approach to design & artisanal production has seen their US operation expand rapidly over the last two years.
Art Hide works with premium quality cowhides, sourced as a natural by-product of the beef industry, and has set itself apart from the standard range of USA market hide products with seasonal color work and innovative hide treatment techniques, such as laser burning, hand etching and fine metallic stenciling.
Amigos de Hoy line, offering including rugs, wall décor and soft furnishings. Products like the Joanie giant tambourine and metallic dhurry rugs are among their best sellers.
Of their design process, Creative Director Bree, said: “We like to make sure everything we design has a point of difference. Not the ‘same old, same old’ standard stuff that you see everywhere. We insist our products have a high quality handmade feel that makes our pieces unique and special. “
I am a big fan of Kura and Bree’s style and taste. Their attractive products are beautifully tailored and their selections of colors and textures are perfectly combined. A must have for a transitional atmosphere. I have a feeling that Kura and Bree will be regulars on angeloondesign! AA
