Diamond Sofa

I've noticed the trend towards furnishings having very curvilinear lines lately, and a client recently even told me she wanted a chair that looked "like a cloud" for her master bedroom. I can't think of a more fitting description for these pieces from Diamond Sofa. They look so warm and inviting, and I know that after this year, our focus is going to be on creating homes that are intended for us to stay home.

Pascal Sofa & Swivel Chair

Woodbridge Furniture

We've actually already spec'd this table from Woodbridge Furniture for a client's dining room! Round dining tables are on-trend – clients love the sense of hospitality they offer, and when a manufacturer gives us the chance to telescope that table to seat more loved ones, it's a win-win. In a post-Covid world, I see dining-in having a resurgence, with dinner parties making a comeback and people wanting to congregate safely at home.

John-Richard

Love the organic vibe of this contemporary clean-lined sideboard from John-Richard featuring a full length wave pattern in brushed stainless steel. Trending today are patterns that emulate nature in different substrates and mixed materials, so this piece checks many boxes: creativity, organic vibe, cased in sustainable linen, and, of course, that awesome stretchered base – talk about modern organic!

Azure Sideboard

EurDecor

With a nod to artisans and organic living, EurDecor dazzles with these gorgeous Skrzyszow vases in steel blue that are sure add a colorful spark to any room. Supporting products that are handmade and practical is important in today's new-normal environment. The color blue is a color that reflects nature’s sky and sea. Also, it happens to be a color of wisdom, strength, and is known to have a calming effect on the psyche – which we could all use right about now!

Bliss Studio

Hello, texture! This show stopping dresser by Bliss Studio has the perfect amount of earthy wooden details and chic French vibes. It's also a prime example of the no-hardware look that I'm loving for a cleaner, more modern space.

Colmo Dresser

Nathan Anthony

Fall is the time for coziness and nothing quite says cozy like sherpa! I envision the Nathan Anthony Embrace Chair as the ultimate addition to a modern cabin, perfect to sink into after a long day of skiing. The deep seat and rounded back make this a great place to curl up with a book and coffee by the fireplace.

Don Ricardo Massenburg

South + English

Mix it up! A bit of stone, a little wood, and sitting on a brass base! Although it is simple, this piece from South + English has it all! The mixed materials look amazing together and there's also a good amount of storage. The piece definitely makes a statement on its own, but add a tray and a few books and you've got a conversation!

Constantin Coffee Table

Studio A

Size matters! This massive piece by Studio A, with its exaggerated hardware, commands attention and is reminiscent of architecture. It is really tough to make a huge rectangular box catch the eye, but the addition of the subtle brass, the details used to create visibility on each side, and the oversized hardware really accentuate this piece.

Arbor Tall Cabinet-Smoke

Rachel Moriarty

Design Legacy

I’m a super fan of functional art and artist Kelly O'Neal definitely knows how to put the FUN in functional art! He takes these classic brass chairs to the next level with his vibrant artwork.

'Balloon Thief' Hand Painted Chair

Julian Chichester

This sleek little drinks cabinet from Julian Chichester had me at Hello! I adore the geometric teal vellum panel detail and it’s super sleek high gloss white finish!

Phoenix Drinks Cabinet

Ivonne Ronderos

Dovetail Furniture

We love pieces of furniture that have texture and warmth and unique elements. This piece from Dovetail Furniture is a great combination of classic modern with crisp white accents surrounding its natural and organic wood doors.

Elwell Sideboard

More deliciousness from Dovetail, this desk is classic and timeless with its dark finish and a unique flash of pop from the hammered metal.

Kelsey Desk

Victoria Sanchez

Tomlinson

I like the simple transitional form this chair offers, but the slight curve toward the base of the chair adds a little whisper that speaks to the designer Barry Dixon’s attention to detail and Tomlinson's high quality. I predict a classic!

Swoop Chair by Barry Dixon

Woodbridge Furniture

I'm already a fan of the Lauren Liess collection by Woodbridge Furniture, and I love this functional piece that could slide into many a kitchen! Well built and terrific scale – this will be a fantastic gathering spot.

Kindel, Karges, Councill

The petite Round Monaco Occasional Table from the Dorothy Draper Collection at Kindel, Karges, Councill is a beautiful and classic piece that will add panache to any environment. Dorothy Draper, America’s most famous and original decorator of the 1930s and 40s, was known for big, bold, and bright style, so you can never go wrong with anything from this collection. The strong design feature of the three concave legs support a lower shelf for storage. The petite size makes it ideal for smaller spaces or to pair as two for a larger seating area. This table is fashioned from Cherry wood, but is available in any custom paint color or stain finish you can imagine!

Kenneth Cobonpue

The Sage Sofa by Kenneth Cobonpue is the personification of magic in the form of functional seating. As an interior designer, I’m always striving to incorporate furniture that could be mistaken for art. As a former fashion designer, I can appreciate the innovative use of draping to transform this sofa into an extraordinary piece. Shown in plush velvet fabric draped gracefully over the frame like a leaf leisurely resting on the earth, the Sage sofa, inspired by Thumbelina and her story, elevates comfort to an unforgettable experience, making reality much more enchanting.
