Minneapolis interior design studio Prospect Refuge has translated its Scandinavian-modern style to an exclusive line of home goods. Owner Victoria Sass, who’s worked as an interior designer in the Twin Cities for a decade, created the new “Goods” collection in collaboration with Minnesota makers. She says the line is a natural extension of the Prospect Refuge brand that grew organically out of connections made through her interior designs. During a brainstorming session about a retail client’s store fixtures with local furniture builder Marvin Freitas, Sass mentioned her ideas for hardware designs. Freitas was instantly enthused—and within weeks, he created a prototype based on Sass’s specifications that later evolved into two styles of hammered brass hardware. The collection’s first round of products, which will change on a seasonal basis, also includes throw pillows featuring whimsical screen prints by local textile artist Luci Kandler and shibori-dyed cushions by Indigo & Snow, plus pottery and textiles that Sass had custom made. •
