Resting is serious business. You don’t skip your Sundays, no sir. There’s a paper to read and a breathtaking view to observe. Lean back and get your feet up.
Putting design in its place, Get Your Feet Up reinterprets historic Newfoundland Outport furniture for the modern context of the Fogo Island Inn. Outport Furniture reflected the contrasting parts of the Newfoundlander’s personalities being both plain; practical in using what was available locally and building what they needed themselves and fancy; bold colour, expressive decoration and humor that fused styles with a disregard for rules and a strong sense of the individual.
Dutch Designer Ineke Hans reinterpreted the classic settle, a wood sofa that was used in the kitchen to have a nap between chores that didn’t require taking off your work clothes and turned it into a modern piece you could do the same with or put in the finest of parlors.
