Combining contemporary influences, natural materials, and aesthetics, PALECEK x Kirk Nix pushes the bounds of design.

The Pratt Chair Collection is an iconic piece for PALECEK x Kirk Nix and is inspired by indigenous art and fishing net weaving. The Pratt Arm Chair features plantation hardwood frame and legs in a dark espresso finish featuring natural jute rope in an open weave pattern.
The Bronson Lighting Collection features Hand-blown rippled glass shade suspended from a pewter or brass finished metal backplate accented with wrapped grey cane matting. Explore the Bronson Brass Pendant.
The best designs come from collaboration. Nix came from a strictly hospitality background while Andrew T. Palecek comes from the PALECEK tradition of unique residential and hospitality pieces. The meeting of minds has led to more intricate furnishings with ever-developing weaves.
Nix takes his lifetime of travel from Saudi Arabia to China and beyond to his designs. Andrew T. Palecek finds inspiration in details that begin transforming into a broader design.
