INSIDE: knotty and nice
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 1/17/2008


HARRY: I’m getting into knots. I wrote a story recently for Belle magazine about a house in Queens Park - it was the home of Liane Rossler and architect Sam Marshall. A great house but the thing I keep thinking about was the pine cladding. It’s a sustainable timber but very knotty - and they relished the knots. Instead of hiding them they made a feature of them. There’s a sense of wabi sabi - beauty in imperfection. I love it. I was checking out Dwell’s site when I came across this kitchen in a Thomas Robertson house in LA. It’s got that same feel. Modern with a twist. Long live the knot.
