San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2006
Moenia Design (formerly Vintage Baskets), specializing in designing woven furnishings and decorative accessories for modern living, will introduce the “Spa Collection” at the Las Vegas Market on July 24th, 2006. The collection features colorful furniture and decorative accessories based on organic forms. Targeted at spas, resorts, hotels, and high-end retailers, architectural and design firms, the Spa collection compliments Moenia’s Resort, Vineyard, and Home and Garden Collections. The collection provides a refreshing look and brings a sensory experience to modern living. This approach is symbolic in combining natural materials, organic form, and vibrant colors that enable designers to create a more sensory environment.
“We’ll use bolder applications of color, form, and materials to set the tone for our new product offerings in keeping with our mission of modernizing weave” explained Neil Gehani, CEO of Moenia Design.
“We wanted the collection to suggest the natural feeling of the spa environment but from a more vibrant perspective,” said Tonie Cox, Moenia’s Director of Product Design. “For example our Calla Chair, which mimics a blossoming Calla Lily, evokes that feeling of renewal that brings you to the spa.”

Materials and Craftsmanship
Moenia’s Spa collection comprises products made with a contribution not only from the designer, but from the artisans and the materials themselves. Using natural materials allows freedom to explore; the surface qualities of the material become part of the design. For example, when dying a natural material, like Lampakanay (a grass similar to Abaca), tonal variations come through and add character to the piece. Using woven materials on a metal framework creates endless opportunities for exploration that more rigid materials just don’t allow. Many of Moenia Design’s new products take advantage of this opportunity resulting in a fresh contemporary look seldom seen in woven furnishings. In addition to Lampakanay, Moenia uses a range of materials from Rattan to Nito, Bamboo, and varieties of Abaca combined with metal and wood to create products that range from traditional to modern styles. Customers will find something to suit any environment.
