Verbier has always lured passionate skiers and mountaineers with its steep slopes and gripping landscapes like the new inhabitants of this chalet. Vistas of the St Bernard in Italy on one side and Mont Blanc in France on the other, this chalet provides mesmerizing Alpine views. The Scandinavian family wanted it to become modern, like their international lifestyle, yet also keep the traditional warmth of a mountain chalet.
The original 1970s chalet was given a new narrative, bringing natural light in, with big openings, feeling closer and in tune with the surrounding nature. Natural light was used as an essential component of design, along with other elements like ― metal, fur, wood―blended with a modern aesthetic.
Simplicity, contemporary sharp and graphic lines meet botanical and highly textured ceramics. Organic and rough accents are brought by a black trunk coffee table or Scandinavian hides. The Scandinavian themes is looked through the eyes of 1940s French designers like Jean Prouvé , Pierre Jeanneret or Jielde lamps.
Silk rugs, furs, cashmere or Belgian linen curtains add softness and an understated luxurious feel to this contemporary chalet.
