Cabana Magazine Issue 19
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.
Covers by Loro Piana.
We like to think of Cabana N19 as the Magicians’ issue, on account of a few people featured whose ‘special powers’ are very evident when it comes to interiors. Travel with us to Jacob, Lord Rothschild’s magical paradise on the island of Corfu; journey through the history and architectural splendour of Andalusia, and explore the stunning textiles and landscapes of Bulgaria. Lose yourself in Umberto Pasti’s dream-like house and gardens in Tangier, which, like a living creature, are constantly evolving and following their owner’s vision. Meet Geoffrey Bawa in Sri Lanka where the architect has created a spell-binding “story out of nothing”, and visit maker Deborah Needleman in upstate New York to marvel at her ‘magic wand’ - her hands - carefully weaving strands of willow and rush, creating timeless objects for everyday use.
