Cabana is about intimacy, exploring the close relationship each person has with interiors and design. Not only big and grand rooms, but the small detail or object in a corner that makes a room feel unique and yet personal. The German word gemütlich summons the Cabana vision, conveying an inviting feeling of warmth and sense of space. Whether it be a palazzo, a flat, a folly or a hut, the Cabana mood is an appreciation of the sensory and experiential characteristics of interiors.
This issue is a gateway between East and West; a mix of influences and cultures, textiles and objects, grand architectures and simple yet charming interiors from the masterly Istanbul Portfolio by Antonio Monfreda, and the beautiful imperfection of form and decor of the Denizli mosques by Miguel Flores-Vianna. Other stories include a hidden gem in Paris photographed by Mark Luscombe-White, a beautiful house in Beirut captured by Simon Upton and an extensive portfolio by Guido Taroni on Piero Portaluppi, one of those rare examples of an architect-designer's synthesis of great modernist design and decorative details recalling Baroque Italy.
