It was a wild week for design lovers. The London Design Festival kicked off last weekend and Wednesday marked the return of What’s New, What’s Next in New York. Needless to say, there’s a slew of exciting debuts to fawn over until next week. From striped ceramic side tables to menswear-inspired armchairs, here are 10 standouts from the latest round of launches.
At WNWN, Rhode Island designer Blair Moore announced the launch of her new Roweam furniture line. The debut boasts two collections: True Vintage, a thoughtful curation of antique finds; and New Vintage, an eight-piece series of hand-made heirloom-quality designs, including the romantic, fringe-trimmed Pavilion chair and the low-slung, Arts and Crafts–esque Disc coffee table with geometric turned legs.
Abby Kasonik released an artful line of fully functional sculptures. The characterful collection includes 15 hand-thrown and fired ceramic designs bedecked in playful patterns and glazes, including the colorfully striped Lady Day side table and the painterly plaid-patterned Cheeky Check table lamp.
Yabu Pushelberg rolled out a new collaboration with CC-Tapis called Memento. The collection comprises seven hand-knotted Himalayan wool rug designs crafted by Tibetan artisans in Nepal, such as the architectural Iso, the ethereal Drift and the shadowy Echo.
The Citizenry unveiled its inaugural line of hand-crafted seating pieces. The Helm Living Room collection features four tailor-made styles available in an assortment of fabrics and hues, including the ultracurvy Bay armchair, the clean-lined Bower ottoman and the walnut-framed Helm sofa.
Villa Nova’s Abloom collection is brimming with fall-friendly florals. The series features 10 intricately embroidered fabric designs—and a coordinating line of cushions and throws—outfitted in soft muted hues and rustic botanical motifs, including the twirling vine–filled Aurea and the delightfully dashed Elwood.
Parete launched its first-ever line of made-to-order floorcoverings. Available in your choice of over 75 colors, the collection offers three distinct rug styles inspired by the brand’s bestselling wallpaper patterns, including the hand-knotted, abstract art–esque This Is Not a Rug and the cut-pile, gradient-hued Ohhhm-Bre.
Lee Broom presented its latest lighting collection inside the brand’s newly expanded flagship showroom on Rivington Street in London. Introductions include the Altar wall light, a fluted stunner carved from solid English oak that draws inspiration from midcentury churches, and the Chant surface light, a glass brick–style sconce composed of a single hand-blown cube.
House of Hackney’s Gothic Garden collection was on full display at 200 Lex. The eye-catching series includes dozens of art nouveau–esque designs—including textiles and decor accents—dressed in psychedelic wildflower motifs, ranging from the kaleidoscopic Floralia velvet fabric to the tapestry-like Bathsheba wallpaper and the surrealist Vespertine pillow.
At the London Design Festival, Poltrona Frau debuted a fashion-forward collaboration with Ozwald Boateng. Drawing from the British menswear designer’s Ghanaian heritage, the capsule collection offers seating, textiles and lifestyle accessories adorned with bold patterns and classic silhouettes, such as the re-imagined Chester armchair clad in rich yellow upholstery and a kente cloth–inspired wallpaper print.
At the New York Design Center, De La Vega Designs showcased its new limited-edition Olas screens. Inspired by wavy waters, the dexterous brass-framed design features an intricate coquille d’oeuf (a crushed-eggshell technique) lacquer motif that evokes the undulating ebb and flow of ocean swells.
