    Tanja Haug has designed a ski chalet for property developers Realitalia in Limone Piemonte, one of Italy’s oldest ski areas about 100km south of Turin near the border of France.The chalet’s idyllic Alpine setting inspired the interior design, using natural materials throughout. The result is any skier’s idea of bliss: stone and wood walls, heavily beamed ceilings, and furniture and lighting made from antique salvaged wood.

    The chalet’s environmental credentials are noteworthy. The stone used to build the chalet, for example, was salvaged from a nearby baita – or mountain hut – that was demolished.

    Special lighting was commissioned and an impressive chandelier was made from the roots of a tree. This now hangs over the dining table in the chalet. Corten steel was used for the stairs and balustrades, which now have the most beautiful patina.

    The chalet’s furniture was made to measure, much of it constructed from antique wood. A Bodema sofa in the living room was covered in specially treated leather to give it an antique look but also a soft and warm touch. Chairs were covered in Alcantara.
