ONE LUCKY TABLE

(4Portuguese designer Joana Santos Barbosa, founder of INSIDHERLAND, is clearly influenced by the natural world. Her vision has translated fallen leaves into accents for mirrors, while tree trunks and branches emerge as design elements when crafting a bookcase. Here, she has taken the humble clover – in its lucky four-leaf version – as inspiration for the “Four… For Luck” center table. In introducing the piece, the designer has noted that each leaf of a traditional clover is said to have a meaning – hope, faith or love. The finding of a four-leaf clover adds luck to the picture and can also be interpreted as representing the completion of the cycle of the seasons, the phases of the moon and the four elements of nature – water, air earth and fire. A rare find, it’s also said to be a symbol of prosperity. This table, which subtly introduces these themes into its surroundings, can be customized. Options include rosewood or walnut ($3,996) or ebony ($4,218).
