Today I am very excited to share these images of apartment Bergen in the Netherlands - beautifully photographed by Jolanda Kruse.  Interior design by Piet-Jan van den Kommer .... and I was a little bit surprised that I have not come across the work of this very talented designer up till now. 

"The philosophy of Piet Jan van den Kommer says it all: "Pure honest materials that get more beautiful by being used and besides that they always consist and display a certain rough authenticity"

Piet-Jan started making furniture for family and friends at the very young age of 14, in a shed in the back garden of the family home. Fifteen years later, Piet-Jan had developed into a designer of note and now operates from a 15,000 m2 space consisting of his office, a showroom and workshop - hosting a wide variety of lifestyle products mainly using natural materials such as wood, zinc, stell, stone and concrete and leather.

Piet-Jan will always look for and find the best and most suited combination of natural materials.

My favorite furniture piece is definitely the wooden blocked coffee table, very original, very rustic and very natural.  I also love what he has done with the polished concrete shower inclosure (image 4) - and did I mention that soon we will be offering this very same beautiful finish - so please keep watching this space
