Donum Home

Interior Design: David Thulstrup
Location: California, United States
Year: 2021
Furniture: Arv Chair

Located in the Sonoma County wine region and home to a monumental sculpture collection, one of the leading Californian Pinot Noir producers—The Donum Estate—commissioned David Thulstrup to reconfigure Donum Home: a space for wine tasting, dining, and entertainment.

Studying the impressive Californian landscapes, David Thulstrup introduced simplistic and honest architectural interventions that allow the art and the wine to articulate. The design language expresses simplicity, functionalism, and a sense of calmness. Three tasting rooms and a range of custom furniture pieces have been added to enable coherence between objects and space while fostering a sense of holism from the inside-out.

ARV Chairs match with the overall design language that pays homage to Scandinavian values such as simplicity, functionalism, and a sense of calmness, while giving a nod to the Californian vernacular through natural materiality.


“The outcome is an honest, simple and not over-designed place that reflects its surroundings, while also paying an ode to my Scandinavian roots without any Nordic clichés.”
