The Bonetti | Kozerski designed collection receives sophisticated update
Dallas, Texas – October 26, 2020 — Sutherland Furniture, the preeminent provider of luxury outdoor furniture, has expanded the Plateau Collection, which originally debuted in 2017. Designed by the highly acclaimed duo Enrico Bonetti and Dominic Kozerski of Bonetti | Kozerski Architecture DPC, Plateau reflects the pair’s unique aesthetic of understated luxury. For Fall 2020, Sutherland added four beautifully minimalistic pieces: an armless sofa, dining side chair, right arm facing daybed, and rectangular dining table.
True to form in regards to scale and presence, the new Plateau pieces highlight Sutherland’s attention to detail by selecting solid teak of Grade A quality. Ensuring color consistency and strength Plateau is a result of fluid design and exquisite craftsmanship. The Plateau Armless Sofa is simple yet inviting with a modern twist. Enrico Bonetti states, “We wanted to make the functional role of every piece evident, to create something of such scale and volume that it becomes as much an architectural installation as it is a piece of furniture.”
The 2017 Plateau Collection featured a left arm facing daybed, so the Sutherland team balanced it with a newly released Right Arm Facing Daybed/Sofa. As with the original design, the daybed is a remarkable feat of construction, seamlessly fusing expansive pieces of solid teak to form an effortless design. “The wood joinery used in the collection is a distinction in and of itself,” adds Dominic Kozerski. “Rather than the traditional wood joints used in most pieces of furniture, the Plateau collection is built to achieve high strength while still looking seamlessly fused together.”
Embellishing the Plateau dining options are a dining side chair and rectangular dining table. The Plateau Dining Side Chair reflects the honesty in the Bonetti | Kozerski design with bold teak architectural lines. A departure from Plateau’s pure teak designs, the Plateau 120” Rectangular Dining Table is accented with a stunning slab of Carrara Marble. The combination of the marble’s blue-grey veins and the teak’s natural grain results in a striking modern design ideal for grand contemporary outdoor spaces.
“The pieces are elegant, sculptural and impressive forces of scale, and they embody the fundamentals of holistic design in an extraordinarily inventive way,” says David Sutherland, Founder of Sutherland Furniture.
The Plateau Collection is available to interior designers and architects through David Sutherland Showrooms and representatives throughout the US and abroad. To view the full collection, visit www.sutherlandfurniture.com. High-res images are available upon request.
About Bonetti / Kozerski
Italian Architect Enrico Bonetti and British Architect Dominic Kozerski founded their Studio in New York in 2000.
By applying their European backgrounds to sophisticated projects for strong personalities (Ian Schrager, André Balazs, Donna Karan and Diego Della Valle are some of their clients) the duo achieved what has been described “…an aesthetic of understated luxury. Their style is more of a sense: that of calm and warmth, evident only in the delicate interplay of space and light.”
Alternating private residential projects with retail branding has helped to establish a very unique approach that brings together elements of both worlds creating unique and unexpected solutions.

Produced in collaboration with highly sought after interior designer, Ben Pentreath, the Queen Square collection features iconic Morris & Co. designs in striking new colors reminiscent of the 60s.
Ben said, “I’ve loved the William Morris archive for as long as I can remember; but one of the recurring themes for me is the beautiful colorways developed by Sanderson in the 1960s. If, like me, you’re old enough to remember everyone’s houses in the 70s and early 80s decorated with seagrass squares on the floor and William Morris on the walls and the sofa, you’ll understand the deep nostalgia and sense of a slightly simpler time that these patterns evoke. There is a sense of comfort and happiness in these fabrics and patterns that could not be more relevant today.”
JANUARY 2021 (NEW YORK, NY) — As the world changes at an unprecedented pace, innovations can make life more efficient but oftentimes at the expense of human touch. As we embrace this new frontier, there is also a desire for more individualization. That means so many creatives—from fine artists to poets, novice and professional alike—are in the midst of a renaissance right now.
Making Our Mark, Weitzner’s Spring 2021 introduction, celebrates that personal expression and personal character. Through sketches of textures, symbols, doodles, words and writings created in the Lori Weitzner studio, these unique imprints became muse as the team created the latest collection of textiles and wallcoverings. All with the hope of connecting our human spirits.
Inspired by centuries of unique historic beauty, Cole & Son’s newest collection Seville captivates with its vibrant botanicals and sun-drenched antique palettes. This collection of diverse wallcovering brings the liveliness of southern Spain to an interior with architectural, flora and tile motifs. Make an appointment with the showroom to see more of this beautiful collection.
Clarence House is introducing their Spring 2021 collection which includes Akasaka, an original hand-block design created by Kazumi Yoshida.
New elaborate woodblock designs are rare. In this production method, each step is completely hand crafted, from carving the individual blocks to printing the fabric. Akasaka is inspired by the intertwinings of different cultures. The flowers are drawn in a western style, but it has the undeniable influence of Japanese woodblock prints. This pattern is unique and exquisite, offering an experience when admiring all of the hard work that went into creating it.
