Fritz Hansen Blends In With the Furniture — Literally — at the Catskills Retreat Piaule

These days, it’s not uncommon for a hotel group to launch its own homeware line. A homeware line that launches a hotel, however, is slightly more novel. But that’s exactly what Piaule founders Nolan McHugh and Trevor Briggs did: bought 50 acres of land in the Catskills, built a dreamy eco-friendly boutique resort designed with Garrison Architects, and opened to guests in 2021 with the primary aim to better connect them with nature. Surrounded by woodland and overlooking the mountains, this idyllic setting and its Scandi sensibility was a no-brainer for Danish furniture brand Fritz Hansen to install and showcase its first outdoor furniture collection.
