Originally designed as a hideaway at a busy exhibit, Frame House redefines the idea of "multipurpose." Designer Floris Schoonderbeek notes the "soft curves" and "the house-like shape" that are friendly and inviting. Easily constructed, it could serve as an garden arbor, an alfresco dining room or anything else the imagination might conjure. Its beams are fashioned in natural, untreated Douglas fir with galvanized steel connectors, and the optional platform is made of the same timber in smooth planks. Frame House comes without a roof but specially designed polycarbonate roof panels are available—or create a covering with fabric, plantings or other materials. As Floris notes, “It offers the possibility to create your own space at any location. It’s completely open to change."

The bold and bulbous wood-burning Dutchtub hot tub grabbed our attention in 2013, and with a wider range of equally unorthodox, high-quality, yet essential outdoor furniture and lighting newly on offer from this Holland house of design, it was high time A+R roll it out stateside as the brand's first North American dealer. Perfect poolside at home or in hotels, or take the to-go Beach Rocker or Guidelight seaside or camping.
Quality of life is what drives the Weltevree family, and that includes their approach to design: from FSC-approved and -certified timber, much of it harvested from Dutch forests; to premium steel and finishes. To them, it’s about “indulging experiences that promote well-being. We totally believe life is about what you experience; not what you own.” We can totally get behind that.
