with natural materials and traditional craftsmanship, australian designer nic graham creates the ‘QT/chillax’ collection for stellar works. composed of a lounge, highback and standard chair, sofa, stool, and coffee table, the furniture pieces combine the laidback spirit of modern australian life with mid-century scandinavian design. it does so by highlighting retro details with a light touch, such as its gentle forms and the subtle contrast of its genuine materials.

initially developed for australia’s QT hotels brand, the stellar works’ ‘QT/chillax’ collection by nic graham are warm and welcoming additions to any contemporary interior. although conveying a casual appeal, the designs showcase a luxurious aesthetic overall, as a result of its natural materials, quality craftsmanship, and slender shapes. powder coated steel frames minimally curve to support and connect the soft upholstery to the solid wood features.
