Portside Café launches new furniture line which tries to capture the mood of a bygone era
2010: Portside Café’s new furniture line tries to capture the mood of times before the words resort, spa and air conditioning came into existence. The furniture and knick-knacks are relics of a time long gone. The antique tanned, hand stained aesthetic has been achieved by a meticulous process, perfected by a team of highly skilled artisans who bring classic authenticity to each piece.
The versatile leather interplays with the strength of metal, as side tables and book shelves adopt slim, streamlined shapes. Curved edges of the legs, as they intersect or by pass each other, add a hint of softness, without detracting from their sturdy metal-framed silhouettes. This old meets modern silhouette is essential also to the straight laced forms of the Filing Cabinet and the Loopy Chest.
