It's all in the mix.
It’s all in the name. Modern Relik. The mix of the new with the old. Modernity blended with patina and heritage.
We appreciate the classics. But classics seek relevance or they fade into obscurity. Similarly, a room that is too perfectly designed and filled only with modern furnishings abandons the owner’s own creative spirit and forsakes the memories and history that led to this very place.
Everything before us has led to the now. It defines who we are as an individual, a family and an artist. Yes! We are all artists – the directors or composers of our lives. Why would we then allow ourselves to be bound by trends of the moment that dictate to us a viewpoint created by someone else? It doesn’t make sense.
Bold design is one that combines luxury with imagination. It is grounded in an honest reflection of who we are and then built upon elegance, harmony and an attention to detail, using quality materials and exceptional craftsmanship. Finally, it is topped with layers and layers of interesting and personal objects and artifacts that reflect both our past and our future - what we love and can’t live without; what we admire and adore. These “reliks” and artisanal, hand-crafted specimens are the fragments of history and the appreciation for artistry that give us the look of a life well-lived.
Combining luxury with imagination and fine living with a sense of drama - always with comfort in mind - this is the tenet and spirit of Modern Relik.
