DeMuro Das Rethinks the Nightstand
Nightstands can be a bit of an afterthought, the bed’s too-oft-overlooked sidekick. Brian DeMuro and Puru Das of DeMuro Das, an interior and product design firm based in New Delhi, India—and now with a New York showroom—boost the genre’s status with Corbu. The 24-inch-high bedside table boasts boomerang-shape walnut pulls, asymmetric solid walnut or oak legs, and drawers with hand-applied sheets of plant-based Carta—a non-animal alternative to parchment the pair discovered on a sourcing mission for interiors clients. (“Its beautifully mottled surface has an organic, tactile quality we love,” DeMuro notes.) The proportions of the fireplace at Adalberto Libera’s 1937 Casa Malaparte informed the overall shape. Another reference? Le Corbusier murals—hence the name.
