Furniture brand Ford Standard's collection 'Qualities of Material' was inspired by the possibilities that its natural materials are capable of -- reimagining traditional crafting techniques in order to create unique contemporary pieces.

The company uses materials such as stone, wood and leather to do this, leaving the natural characteristics of each exposed while shaping them in a fresh new way. The Qualities of Material collection includes a storage closet that features doors that look like industrial crates, a bench and table set with geometric detailing, a sharply shaped chair that uses a single piece of wood for an intriguing back support and a coffee table with three-legged support. By leaving the materials used in the pieces exposed, Ford Standard celebrates the possibilities granted by it while complementing the collection with its natural designs.
