Words by Steven Fernandez. We all go into hibernation during winter, so there’s no better season to deck your space out with some funky new furniture. Republichas you sorted with four new furniture collections that will make you glad to be a homebody! We checked out these collections stocked exclusively at Republic, so here’s a little rundown… The “Roadie” Collection This collection takes inspiration from nomadic musicians, pop stars and rock bands that live their life on the road. Built on a structure of FSC-recycled teak wood and bolted together with sturdy aluminium joinery, these pieces are as functional as they are fashionable! The “Deserter” Collection Taking inspiration from military units, this collection has the style and feel of a desert army barracks. With items including a bed frame, five-drawer dresser, four drawer chest and bedside table in both khaki and olive, this collection is constructed out of recycled metal and canvas for the ultimate washed chic desert aesthetic! The “Rope Me” Collection Taking inspiration from the marine life theme already hugely popular in fashion and art, this collection includes a coffee table, shelving units, chests of drawers, a sideboard and entertainment unit. It’s constructed of recycled wood and heavy-duty marine rope to give your space that beloved oceanic feel. The “Contradictions” Collection These occasional chairs covered in vintage Indian kantha or Uzbek suzani fabrics have an eye-catching presence that make them the standout feature of any room. With pieces including the Joel club chair, Nadia chair, Ahdia chair, Asima chair, and Diana rocker chair, these chairs allow you to inject color and life into any setting!
