Fashion designer Carolyn Fieber’s “The Kautsch Collection” brings the work of her great great-grandfather into a contemporary vocabulary. In 1895, Johann Bretz created his first couches. His company was then located in the Rhine River town of Gensingen, and it still maintains the same directive to produce fine hand-made upholstered furniture. Fieber’s collection includes sofas, armchairs, stools, and rugs. (via Contemporist).
