Fine Cabin Style: Art in Movement

Movement is an intricate and important element of nature. Beginning with birth, and evolving to growth and decay– the natural world is constantly changing, and within that fluctuation is a consistent and ever-evolving beauty that can infuse life into a space. Incorporating the idea of movement either literally or figuratively into an interior design generates a world of juxtaposition and possibility. In the same way that the billowing trees that stand firmly planted in the ground, yet possess enough bend in their branches to dance with the wind and shed their leaves, there can be a sense of freedom within a fixed design space. It can also convey the passage of time and the change of the seasons. Fine Cabin features many different artisans that represent this idea in pieces that span a wide variety of mediums. In photography, movement can be represented through repetition, perspective, and placement.
