Summer is slowly winding down and, much like the coming autumn leaves, the seasonally inspired collections are dropping left and right. From ultra fashionable, Bauhaus-style wallpaper to scallop-edged solid wood nightstands, here are 10 highlights from the recent round of releases.
Banana Republic debuted its inaugural home collection, called BR Home. The launch introduces bedroom, living room and dining room furniture—as well as lighting and decor—into the beloved brand’s repertoire, with sleek yet sophisticated offerings including the gently rounded Stinson sofa, the cast-aluminum Sydney coffee table and the clay-beaded Aurora chandelier.
Kohler unveiled an exclusive collaboration with Shea McGee. Available in showrooms starting September 29, the launch offers an array of fixtures, vanities and accessories—including a trio of McGee-designed Ann Sacks tiles—bearing the A-list designer’s signature modern-meets-traditional aesthetic, such as the clean-lined Edalyn faucet and the ribbed glass-accented Embra sconce.
CB2 released the Ackerman Modern collection, featuring original patterns designed by Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman. The 58-piece series spans more than 60 years of the Los Angeles–based wife-and-husband designer duo’s graphic industrial-style work, including everything from hand-knotted wool rugs and flax linen bedding to carved terra-cotta vases and high-contrast geometric wall art.
Sarah Sherman Samuel’s latest line for Lulu and Georgia is every bit as exuberant as expected. In addition to tubular deco-style sofas and scallop-edged solid wood nightstands, the series includes the designer’s first-ever lighting and bedding collections for the brand, with designs such as a squiggly-armed chandelier and a floor lamp with a curved tripod base and fluted shade.
Sunbrella premiered its first line of custom window treatments. Available as soft drapery and Roman or solar shades, the series offers more than 300 colorways across nearly four dozen performance fabric patterns, all of which are tailor-made with your choice of customized features, including valances, cornices and motorization options.
Vaughan’s Bramdean Collection is teeming with artisanal appeal. Offering more than two dozen dexterously made designs that draw from a wide range of aesthetic references, the series includes an Arts and Crafts–style side table with a bobbinlike base named Ashfield and Birds Imari, a porcelain table lamp bedecked in a colorful 17th century Japanese-inspired flora and fauna motif.
Mitzi called on Natalie Papier of Home Ec. for its latest tastemaker collaboration. A love letter to antique lighting, the collection encompasses 28 vintage-inspired pieces punctuated by retro details and sculptural forms, such as the ruffled opal glass–clad Kelsey wall sconce and flower-esque Madeline pendant with petal-shaped linen shades.
To celebrate the opening of its second New York flagship, Carl Hansen & Søn rolled out a quartet of special-edition EO15 Embrace lounge chairs by Austrian brand Eoos. The collectible design boasts plush, pillowlike cushions and armrests, and comes swathed in your choice of furry blue, gray, pink or white Argo 2 by Raf Simons for Kvadrat upholstery.
Pindler dropped its highly sought-after Silk Collection. The debut offers seven silk-blend patterns—including solids, checks, plaids and stripes—in a rainbow of soft, muted hues such as the banded Serena, the gingham Shelby and the multitonal Sloane.
Farrow & Ball tapped Christopher John Rogers for an eye-catching capsule collection called Carte Blanche. Drawing from the fashion designer’s Louisiana childhood, the collaboration boasts 12 shades of paint—ranging from vivid blues to cheery pinks—and three statement-making wallpaper prints including the stippled Dot and the Bauhaus-inspired Check.
