Design Notes: Masculine Décor by Janette Ewen

Simple, clean-lined, rich and sophisticated… just a few key words to define masculine décor. This style, both in home décor and fashion embrace layering of simple textures, deep colour and plenty of wood.

Two Canadian design-manufactures, G. Romano and Huppé are industry leaders when it comes to this ultra chic style.

Design Notes: Masculine Décor by Janette Ewen

Huppés “The Swan” collection is a part of their UP line. The bed from this collection (seen here) is constructed of select American walnut veneer and solid American walnut, and features an elongated headboard with modern styling. This bed would look perfect in a number of interiors, from loft space to country home. Huppé is known for their ability to highlight the beauty of wood, as seen in this cabinet, part of their “The Moment Collection.” The cabinet features American walnut veneers specially selected as well as solid American walnut components. A perfect balance between the past and the present characterizes the design. Complementing these pieces is a masculine chair from G. Romano. The Allegro chair with its simple, tailored lines features a touch of edge with a unique nail head trim.
