March 2012 Contract Newsletter

I love the excitement that a new year brings, there is an energy created by the buzz of what is coming up and what is possible.  Last year was about discovery, this year it is all about amplification – making it possible to build on your discoveries in our collection.  Currently, we are building our next release for the Contract website, which will have the entire range listed and specked.  We have a stack of new catalogues to present; beautiful fresh product samples to show and lastly, we are booked in for some big industry events.   2012 is sounding like a lot of fun to me!  I look forward to hearing from you this year. Cheers,

Great Dane Contract is pleased to announce that our newest supplier, de vorm, produces durable Furniture with minimum stress to the environment. Thus, they are only using wood for their timber furniture that has been marked with the FSC quality label (Forest Stewardship Council).

That means, their wood is coming from well-administrated forests, where ecological and social effects are valued. Furthermore they are using the best construction methods, foam qualities, springs and high-quality fabrics and leather with high abrasion resistance. After all, furniture is only durable if it actually has been around for a while….

Featured Brand

&tradition’s beautiful light collection have been a favourite amongst clients for their striking simplicity and beauty – the mouth blown Mega Bulb, Verner Panton’s colourful flowerpots or Benjamin Hubert’s spinning lights to name a few. Recently, &tradition has made their first venture into the furniture market [see product discoveries below!] with NORM architects and we are impressed. Needless to say, we are pleased to highlight &tradition as our Featured Brand.

Product Discovery

Raft Series. Maritime objects fascinate because of their contrasting surfaces. The roughness of corroded wood aging with beauty, blended with the industrial efficiency of metal/brass structures. This is the inspiration behind the Raft Barstool, stool and table, created by NORM architects Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen. They have taken a modern Scandinavian approach to create a unique piece of furniture that combines simplistic purity with a discreetly aged look.
