Maybe it’s because summer is peaking, but it appears several noteworthy design brands are feeling frisky. While some are thinking outside the box with pointedly playful pre-fall collections, others are turning to maximalist-minded tastemakers for new collaborations. Here are some highlights from the latest round of launches.
Fabricut tapped Iris Apfel for a collaboration named Maximal Couture. The collection boasts 12 eye-catching fabric designs inspired by the fashion icon’s wardrobe and textile archives, including the faux fur Spot On and the dragonfly-patterned Fantasy Bug, as well as seven fabulous trimmings, ranging from embroidered and velvet tapes to fuzzy caterpillar cord.
The Vale London has just launched a new range of ready-made pillows. Crafted from textiles in the brand’s vibrant World’s End 2021 collection, the pillows are ready to ship in select patterns and shapes, including Aurum in Midnight (square) and Squiggle in Lagune (lumbar).
Mind the Gap rolled out two commanding wallpaper collections just in time for summer’s end. The first, Chinese Garden, offers 11 bold styles in whimsical flora and fauna motifs like paisley and chinoiserie, while The Artist’s House features seven unique designs with three-dimensional effects, including the flat lay-inspired Mood Board.
Schwinn Hardware released the Vegan by Design collection, which comprises four lines of sustainable cabinet handles. The assortment is composed of natural linseed and features two styles designed by American architect Michael Graves, including a knob and a pull available in burgundy and dark blue with post options in polished chrome or brushed brass.
Oakland, California–based company Revival Rugs released a colorful line of floor coverings named the Ombré Collection. Woven of wool from the Sarda sheep of Sardinia, the assortment comes in four gradient-faded colorways, including earthy Dawn and cool-hued Blue Hour, and is available in seven different sizes.
Design studio Regina Andrew Detroit partnered with Southern Living magazine to launch a line of rustic lighting. The 24-piece collection includes everything from the concrete Billie pendant to the porcelain-flower-clad Alice table lamp, plus our personal favorite, the Lorelei chandelier draped in distressed-gray wooden beads.
Wedding inspiration site Over the Moon has teamed up with Savannah, Georgia–based brand Courtland & Co. to release an exclusive capsule of table linens. The grandmillennial-minded collection includes dinner napkins and a tablecloth made in Colefax and Fowler’s legendary Bowood chintz, and is available in both green and pink.
Fabric company Pindler released a dreamy new line of floral prints called Botanica. The collection boasts five large-scale botanical designs featuring hand-painted artwork, each available in four distinct colorways. One standout in the assortment is Bramble, which is sprightly enough for a summer interior but comes in earth-toned grounds that will transition effortlessly into fall.
Wallcovering company A-Street Prints collaborated with St. Petersburg, Florida–based painter Glenyse Thompson to unveil a vibrant line of wall murals. The collection boasts four bold designs with abstract motifs, including Big Shoulders, which features layers of blue, magenta and orange paint.
