Modern Desert: A contemporary finish option for the Domicile Collection

Bolier & Co., a subsidiary of Decca Furniture Ltd., updated the classic designs of the signature Domicile Collection from designer Michael Vanderbyl by introducing a new finish named 'Modern Desert'.


The inspiration board for the collection includes photos of the iconic Kaufmann House, designed in 1946 by Richard Neutra in the architectural style known as Desert Modernism; a young, hip Steve McQueen lounging in the midcentury-modern, Palm Springs home that he shared with actress Ali McGraw; a sweeping, black and white desert landscape from Ansel Adams and the abstract art compositions of Georgia O'Keefe, produced in her New Mexico studio during the aptly-named American Modernism movement.

The introduction is distinguished by a warm grey finish and bronze accents, creating a sophisticated palette for the assortment of modern classic designs. Together, the designs form a dimensional abstract of earthen tones so often found in the fading light of a late afternoon in the California desert.
