This issue is a gateway between East and West; a mix of influences and cultures, textiles and objects, grand architectures and simple yet charming interiors from the masterly Istanbul Portfolio by Antonio Monfreda, and the beautiful imperfection of form and decor of the Denizli mosques by Miguel Flores-Vianna. Other stories include a hidden gem in Paris photographed by Mark Luscombe-White, a beautiful house in Beirut captured by Simon Upton and an extensive portfolio by Guido Taroni on Piero Portaluppi, one of those rare examples of an architect-designer's synthesis of great modernist design and decorative details recalling Baroque Italy.
About the magazine
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. Whether it be a palazzo, a flat, a folly or a hut, the Cabana mood is an appreciation of the sensory and experiential characteristics of interiors.
Founded by Martina Mondadori, Christoph Radl and Gianluca Reina in2014, Cabana Magazine aims to inspire a new generation of globe trotters, taking them on a journey through sophistication, obsessive collecting, colors and fabrics. The publication is a collectible objet d'art in itself, from its front cover partners with the likes of Pierre Frey, Gucci, Dedar and Etro, to its striking photography and unique feature layouts. It is truly a celebration of the medium of print; its graphic treatment of features, layering embellished borders and striking photography on an array of beautiful types of paper, and the variants of each cover issue, offers readers a truly immersive experience in the world of Cabana.
