Certainly beauty captures one’s attention, but it is personality that captures one’s heart. Why not have both?
Irresistible and eclectic at ABC Home, the Dutch bicycle, a true representative of the reGeneration collection, is familiar in form, but enticing in that there’s something unexpected and juxtaposed about it – namely it’s brass plated, guaranteed to capture the attention of every heart it passes by.
The steel frame, also available to be plated in copper or zinc, will not rust. Typical of mid-century finds, which are known to stand the test of time, not only in functionality, but also esthetically because they blend so well with other periods. Like a Barcelona chair looking natural on a Persian rug or a stark concrete floor, the Dutch bicycle may be a visual compliment to country roads or city streets.
Creating a breathtaking mix of new and old, the Dutch bike is a clever update of Holland’s 19th century ladies’ roadster bike named Omafiets or “grandma bike.” Deciphered by it’s swooped top bar, the Omafiets was originally created for the ease of a woman rider so her skirt might not catch.
It is just a fact that beautiful things work better. So, whether you’re a man or woman, the Dutch bicycle combines design and functionality letting any rider truly shine.
