Distressed finishes really help to bring the outdoors in. Whether it’s an oxidised coffee table or an Eames Fiberglass Chair, there’s a sense of connection to the elements, as if they’ve been finished by Mother Nature herself. As well as adding texture, many promise to patina beautifully with time, creating a design that is utterly unique. Leather, copper and burnished brass are perhaps some of the best known materials for achieving this look, and can be found throughout desert-inspired schemes. It’s an aesthetic that has long intrigued the design team at Gallotti & Radice, with the Haumea, Pandora and Bolle collections all featuring curious burnished surfaces.
