As far as modernist architecture furniture goes, it's all about natural materials and minimalist lines. That is, if Liam Treanor, a designer based in South London, United Kingdom, has anything to say about it. His latest collection, dubbed Santiago, is comprised of surprisingly playful pieces in spite of how simple they first appear.

Named after acclaimed architects, the modernist architecture furniture collection is comprised of the Lina Desk, Paulo Coffee Table, Affonso Stool, and the Louis Candlesticks. Made out of oak or ash, the designs might be clean and contemporary, but they have a warmth that any home can benefit from. In fact, it is this homey quality that will draw people towards it in the first place. Not to mention that there are unexpected twists to traditional details such as with the cabriole legs.
