d*s reader chris passed along a great link yesterday- based in the noho/nolita, shimna is a fantastic furniture resource that carries a really unique collection of european and american designs. in addition they team up with architects and designers to offer custom interior design services. i was really taken with their beam collection that uses thick, substantial beams as the base for some really unique seating. clearly not for those that favor a skinny mid century leg, the beam collection is for those looking for furniture with some visual (and actual) weight to it. i'd love to fill a modern lake house or log cabin with it. you can view the full collection right here. enjoy!
