In outport Newfoundland, it was not uncommon for larger families to live in tight quarters, with multiple generations sometimes living in a single-family saltbox or biscuit box home. Smaller in scale and quieter in aesthetics than our Fogo Island Inn at Home Collection, this new line of furniture emphasizes the dematerialization of objects to minimize resource consumption, while prioritizing longevity.
