A Sprinkle of Asymmetry

A new collection by Nathan Anthony Furniture that pushes the boundaries of basic while delivering the utmost style

Nathan Anthony Furniture's debut of the Alais collection piques interest and sparks inspiration. Each of its three signature items — a fully upholstered bed, an accent chair, and a bench — is distinguished by curvaceous shapes and accented by ball-shaped feet that are crafted from hardwood and sized to scale. Incorporating the sphere as a distinctive design element, this collection takes us to the next phase of the current curvy furniture trend.

Alias Bed

“There’s been a definite evolution in our designs over several seasons," syas line designer, Tina Nicole. "We started by rounding out accent chair frames several years ago for styles like Elan and Dali, and then more dramatically for our popular Buttercup chair. We also began to shape the foam padding surrounding the frames, which added soft dimensionality and plushness, as well as visual interest, to our Chablis and Chelle styles. Rounder shapes are more inviting, like getting a hug, and our interior designer clients have really responded to that."

Alias Bench

The Alais collection is additionally distinguished by Nicole’s fabric cover selection for the fall showroom presentation. Sourced from Fishman Fabrics in Chicago, LeCosta is a high-end wool boucle produced in Italy from pure wool and cotton. Available in 8 colorways, the base material is flecked with colorful, confetti-like yarns.

“I love the quality of the material. It’s luxe, but it’s also very fun and the overall showroom design will reflect that vibe."

For the bench-made upholstery specialist, all items in the collection are fully customizable, along with the option for C.O.M. The ball feet are available in 11 wood finishes, including the newest addition called ‘Blondey’.
