Led by Alison Davin with offices in Santa Monica and San Francisco, Jute is a worldwide favorite for contemporary California design. Later this year, the studio will launch its debut furniture collection, consisting of eight pieces: a dining table, a desk, a stool, a pouf, a coffee table, dresser, and two consoles. “We set out to design the perfect pieces we were looking for but couldn’t find anywhere,” says Alison. “Antique inspiration with modern functionality, warm woods and clean lines, artisan crafted yet totally approachable. The result: a carefully considered line of forever furniture.”
Take a look at their designs below, and get them yourselves starting November 1, 2020.
Apron Table | Taking cues from traditional proportions and construction, this walnut farm table is scaled down for intimate conversation. With breadboard ends and a whimsical apron, it’s compact enough to fit in an eat-in kitchen as easily as a spacious dining room.
Tapered Pouf | Comfortable enough to sit on yet sturdy enough to support a drink, this multitasker balances a tapered silhouette on wooden bun feet. Upholstered in a menswear-inspired wool or fabric of your choice, this casual piece is perfect for entertaining or everyday use.
Doweled Writing Table | Sturdy and no-nonsense, this sawhorse desk combines clean lines with traditional craftsmanship. It’s doweled stretchers are finished with joinery details, while two hanging drawers hold the essentials. Not just for the office, this utilitarian piece works in any room.
Patina Pub Stool | A perfectly imperfect pub stool that combines traditional cues and modern ease. Hand-turned with artisanal techniques and finished with a well-worn patina for an approachable feel, it’s the ideal seat to casually pull up to a dining table or counter.
Waterfall Low Table | Solid walnut, shaped with clean lines and curved edges. Substantial enough to anchor a living space, yet softened to suit any style. This transitional piece flexes easily among design sensibilities.
Paneled Dresser | This multipurpose dresser fuses simple paneled sides and a planked top with four decorative drawers finished with flap pulls. Quirky yet adaptable, it works everywhere from entertaining spaces to the bedroom, or even as a bathroom vanity.
Turned Console | Functional yet filled with character, this walnut console mixes serpentine curves with turned legs and bun feet. With a narrow depth and concealed side drawers for stashing keys or mail, it’s well suited for an entry. In a varied finish made to look slightly imperfect with wear.
Waterfall Console | This utilitarian console has roots in midcentury modern design, but softened curves lend it an organic nature that fits in any room. Top it with a lamp or two in the entry, stash stools or baskets underneath it in the living room or use it as a sideboard in the dining room.
