Big Daddy's Antiques Mountain Modern

When it comes to designing a home, or buying for our stores, I have always come from an extremely personalized approach. My instinct is what drives my aesthetic.

There is a relatively new term in the design world, Mountain Modern, and it perfectly encapsulates what I gravitate towards in home décor.

The key to Mountain Modern, and to a well-curated interior, is in the mix. The goal is warmth and comfort, but we still want a beautiful look that makes your home a sanctuary and has a bit of the ‘wow’ factor.

Big Daddy's Antiques Mountain Modern

I have always loved organic materials – wood, leather, metal, fur and beautiful African textiles are something I have collected for years. I love the texture and warmth they bring. But to keep your interior from looking too hodge podge, I focus on furniture design that is clean and modern to offset the rustic nature of the materials.

I still love classic elements like cowhide rugs and taxidermy, but I like to mix them with some Mid-Century Modern designs and Industrial pieces that juxtapose their look.

When it comes to your home, Big Daddy’s believes in filling it with things that inspire you, things that bring you pleasure, and I always believe in breaking the rules. Because your home should be a reflection of you, fill it with things you love...
