Few brands have mastered the pared-back appeal, the colour-free decor and the clean lines that great minimalist pieces require. Though those that have, boast an understanding of the importance of materials, the attention required to create the perfect line and balance of each piece’s form. Channelling a modern sensibility, these brands design pieces that speak for themselves, each deserving a spot in even the most strikingly minimal homes. 

Here’s our round up of the best. 


Carving canaletto walnut with such care that each piece looks almost as though it was crafted from butter, Porada have been honing their furniture making skills since 1968 and it shows. Fully embracing the beauty found in the grain of wood, this is a brand that understands how the phrase “less is more” need not imply uninspired designs. Instead, fluid lines contrast with perfectly cut glass, and fabrics don’t steal the eye away from the perfect form of each design. A warm take on minimalism, but minimalism none-the-less.
