We were approached by Elaleni Coastal Forest Estate to compile a furniture package for their Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is submerged in the forest and has a tranquil setting with nature on full display.
We designed the furniture package to meet the brief of the space for the residents. The four main areas in the Clubhouse are the bar/community area, yoga studio, meditation room and decked verandah. We curated all the furniture in the four areas to speak to the natural aesthetic of the building. This included solid oak table tops, a wooden breakfast bar, wooden framed couches and woven basket wall art. We also brought in some raw concrete in the forms of pot plants and outdoor coffee tables to contrast the wood. We wanted to bring some texture into the space as well so we styled the outside deck verandah with black and white acapulco chairs and hanging black woven chairs. The interior also had textured grey woven rugs to offset the natural wood and concrete in the space.
Overall this space is functional for events and everyday use, it draws on the natural aesthetic of the building’s setting and creates this unique calming ‘get away’ space that is a hidden gem for residents within the Elaleni Coastal Forest Estate.
