Embracing Natural Design showcases far-flung stylish homes, replete with indoor and outdoor spaces that blend artisanal craftsmanship with a fresh naturalistic design approach. This coffee table book was authored by Stephanie Kienle Gonzalez, Philux Managing Director, and published by Rizzoli New York.
Through beautifully photographed residences, which have an exquisite layering of classic and modern furnishings, Stephanie discusses how to bring sustainable elements into your living space. She employs organic forms, stone and wood pieces, and natural weaves with texture, such as seagrass, caning, bamboo, and rattan. For her urban dwelling she adds tropical greenery and flowers to enliven the interiors, and her eco-friendly family lodge, immersed in the bush wilderness, is surrounded by lush plantings. International designers and artists who have inspired her are also profiled—from sustainable architect Elora Hardy to designers India Hicks, Nate Berkus, and Kenneth Cobonpue.
The book also includes a section entitled "At Work" dedicated to Philux. This section details the company's story, its commitment to honing traditional Filipino skill, its design process, as well as its philosophy as it continues to create and study how to produce in the most sustainable manner possible.
Full of design and entertaining ideas, Embracing Natural Design is for those who are interested in achieving an environmentally conscious lifestyle.
