Quality of life is what drives the Weltevree family, and that includes their approach to design: from FSC-approved and -certified timber, much of it harvested from Dutch forests; to premium steel and finishes. To them, it’s about “indulging experiences that promote well-being. We totally believe life is about what you experience; not what you own.” We can totally get behind that.
