watch: wood

We’re always amazed when a trend hits all categories at the same time: home, fashion, movies… when was the last time you saw so many clogs?

Natural, chunky wood has been a refreshing change from dark wenge finishes we’ve seen these past few years. It’s a surefire way to bring nature indoors—to help us reconnect as we admire the beauty of each unique piece.
