How to bring classic Antipodean style to an alfresco setting

How to bring classic Antipodean style to an alfresco setting

As the weather warms across Australia, it’s time to start migrating outside into our own backyards again. Look to the ‘Forrest’, a new collection of outdoor furniture crafted by Cosh Living’s in-house brand, Kett. We sat down with designer Justin Hutchinson to chat about bringing classic Antipodean style to an alfresco setting.

What is ‘Australian style’, exactly?

It’s style defined by the country’s myriad of identities and cultures, all held in balance by our singular goal of embracing our contemporary urban life.

Why the focus on nature?

We now spend more time entertaining and living outdoors on balconies and in courtyard gardens – cherishing the connection to nature. Our outdoor spaces have become an extension of our lounge rooms and so we naturally desire a greater level of sophistication and comfort.

What are some of the design features of ‘Forrest’?

Crafted from a premium grade of plantation teak, Forrest rejoices in natural, timeless qualities. The form is curvaceous and inviting, and speaks to the expert hand of its maker. Woven details are refined and delicate, but incredibly strong – providing a functional support for the back of the lounge and dining chair.

How does ‘Forrest’ connect to the Earth?

A material centuries old – teak – has been reinvented in this collection. Using craftspeople with a history, and in-depth knowledge of teak, emerges innovation. ‘Forrest’, although hand finished, has the accuracy of the latest technological advances of wood machining. The ‘Forrest’ tables also celebrate natural stone, a further refinement of outdoor living at its best.
