A Gentleman's Retreat

This stunning home in Parnell, Auckland, designed by Sonja Hawkins, features some beautiful products from Artisan.

For the front study, Sonja specified "Nomad" in charcoal - a 100% wool rug, hand knotted in Agra, India. To mute the suns bright rays, Sonja also used blinds from the "Natural Collection by Peter Meyer" in the fabric Chinois, colour Wintergrass.

These blinds were custom-made to measure and installed by our blind installation specialists. Motorisation options are also available in this range.

This moody combination along with the use of lots of natural fibres, creates an air of calm, elegant masculinity and a room perfect for a relaxing evening with the paper and a glass of fine whiskey. 

Both products are exclusively available in NZ from Artisan.
