I had the pleasure of meeting Joe Vinks and browsing amongst his beautiful pieces some time ago…..in a rustic tin shed in the Southern Highlands…..much to my surprise…..a very stylish setting as I recall. I have since seen his pieces looking magnificent in a number of different interiors…..some rustic others rather more formal.
These pieces seem to work anywhere …. in edgy inner city apartments, English country house interiors or beachhouses !!!
I think what makes this furniture so versatile is that it can be stained, waxed or painted to achieve the desired look or fit in with the overall feel of the interior.
I love the silhouette of the twigs against a backdrop when painted white or black but equally there is something just so soft about the aged patina of the natural wood…..some of it the bleached colour of driftwood.
