A grand, turn-of-the-century home restored to its former glory and updated for modern life by Doherty Design Studio provides a fitting backdrop for Volume 2 of GlobeWest’s 2021 Collections.

In keeping with its earlier releases for 2021, Australian furniture brand GlobeWest responds to the challenges of the past year with a new capsule of interior and exterior pieces. Volume 2 in this holistic collection contains pieces chosen to ground an interior space using sculptural forms and striking profiles. Natural materials and organic textures, such as cement finishes, rattan and carved oak, help to provide a warm and contemporary look with touches of nostalgia.

In keeping with its earlier releases for 2021, Australian brand GlobeWest responds to the challenges of the past year with a new capsule of interior and exterior furniture pieces.

Keti Lytras, head of GlobeWest’s Melbourne design team, observes that “this past year has exposed the flaws in our homes but has also heightened our need for them to make us feel good and emphasised our desire to share them with loved ones. Spaces that balance longevity, flexibility, comfort and self-expression are being sought and seen more than ever as an investment in happiness at home.”

Presented in this elegant Brighton home, GlobeWest’s Volume 2 furniture capsule, consisting of four new collections and over 115 new products, has a sense of timelessness that aligns with the sensibilities of the home. Along with owner Alex Arnhold, Doherty Design Studio brought the Edwardian residence into the modern day by creating a contemporary living space to the rear, while paying full respect to period details in other areas of the house, including the existing ornate ceilings and leadlight windows.

Situated in these rooms, pieces such as the Linea Chubby side table straddle both eras and formally resonate with features of the home, such as the striking circular window. With its sturdy, wide legs and round, natural oak top, the table has a contemporary look and vintage detailing. Similarly, the light touch of the Willow Curve dining table with its cylindrical rattan base combines the classic and the contemporary in a manner that encourages sociability.

The collections also includes upholstered occasional chairs, which GlobeWest conceived as the perfect place for soaking up the narrative of a good book or hatching a creative concept. The Humphrey Slope pays homage to the glory years of stately homes such as this one, with utmost comfort designed into its shape and a characteristic leather finish, while the Kennedy Wrap in vintage jacquard fabric is a timeless piece that invites conversation and contemplation.

As GlobeWest observed, comfort is absolutely paramount in 2021, as is the ability to use outdoor spaces effectively. Enriching the comprehensive Outdoor collection, launched in September which included the striking Villa range, Volume 2 brings new Lagoon and Pier pieces together with Ethnicraft’s first outdoor offering designed to accentuate any outdoor setting with comfortable yet hardy finishes and natural materials.

The experience of being confined to the home over the past year has informed understandings about what is essential to daily life. Disposable items become superfluous, with timelessness and comfort at the forefront of daily requirements, while working from home means interior spaces must invoke and inspire creativity. These are the principles and values behind GlobeWest’s new collections of pieces that stimulate the mind and bolster the spirit, with a diversity of design styles to suit all manner of home and homeowner.
