Our guide to design this autumn
Natural wood, dark finishes and lighting combine in Hülsta's new Simia collection for the living room. Launched last year in
Milan, it has only just landed in Australia. And while Hülsta is renowned for its use of woodgrain, the secret to this range's
wow factor is in its Black Magic glass -- a high-gloss, dark-coloured surface by day, it creates a transparent showcase at
night thanks to new LED technology. It's used on cabinet fronts and to add a backlit feature on shelving. Simia comes in
a sophisticated palette of light-brown ash, walnut, and white and black-brown lacquer. It also has plenty of shelving and
cabinet options, plus is packed with technology (think remote-control activation, dimmers and a Tip-Tronic function, which
switches the lighting on at a touch). We love its long horizontal lines, the ability to individualise the cabinetry and the
seamless visual it creates -- cabinetry becomes harmony. Ultimo Interiors (08) 9201 2479, ultimointeriors.com.au.
Strong horizontal lines and a sophisticated palette of
brown-black lacquer and light-brown ash, POA.
