Well Dressed Home No. 13 - Ralph Lauren Desert Modern
His newest collection is called Desert Modern but there is a lot of vintage notes in this modern collection. Many pieces are made by hand, using techniques from the American Studio Craft movement of the 1940s. In this collection is a bench almost five-feet in length that is carved from a single teak log that will be limited to 25 being produced, because the process is so labor-intensive.
A tiered bookshelf's design is drawn from a French 40's example.
