The 29-room, 43,055-square-foot Fogo Island Inn is known for its sumptuous hospitality, floor-to-ceiling ocean views, and design reminiscent of shelters built by nearby fishing communities that have called the eponymous island home for more than a century. Designed by Bergen, Norway–based Saunders Architecture and opened in the spring of 2013, the inn was built to spur economic growth in the isolated, rural region of Canada's Newfoundland and Labrador province. But with rates starting at $875 per night and considering its remote location (on an island off the coast of an island), access to the five-star hotel is limited to all but the most flush and adventurous.

Beginning next month, however, furniture designed for the inn and public spaces throughout the island will be available for purchase internationally through the Klaus showroom in Toronto. Previously, the furniture could only be purchased by hotel visitors.

The 70-piece collection was conceived by a range of designers from Canada and Europe and crafted by local artisans. It includes solid-wood dining chairs, chaises, rockers, benches, and tables as well as accessories like throws and pillows in a mix of pale and saturated hues and whose forms are inspired by the weathered clapboard structures throughout the sparse island. Knit and woven cushions are available on select pieces.

Surplus sales will be reinvested in the island and nearby rural communities in the region through the social-enterprise model of the inn's owner, the Shorefast Foundation, which also supports an artist residencyweaetxdyvaydzcwq.
