We’re only one month into spring, and the collections are heating up faster than the temperatures outside. From contemporary Venetian crystal pendant lights to curvy sofas with spherical feet, here are some standouts from the latest round of launches.
Clarke & Clarke debuted a delightful textile collaboration with iconic British brand Wedgwood called Botanical Wonders. Available through Kravet, the series offers a medley of fabric and wallcovering designs with fantastical floral and frond motifs, including the embroidered Tonquin and the kaleidoscopic Wonderlust Tea Story.
London-based design brand Vaughan premiered its spring collection. The sophisticated selection features nine furniture and lighting pieces punctuated by classical forms, luxe materials and versatile finishes, such as an ivory-colored chandelier adorned in laser cut leaves called Bramshaw and a charcoal-stained amara wood chest with octagonal brass handles and walnut legs named Fullerton.
Kelly Wearstler unveiled a curvaceous furniture collection called Morro. Inspired by monolithic shapes that defined the French and Italian designs of the 1970s, the series offers tables, sofas, chaises and chairs upholstered in sumptuous fabrics from the designer’s latest line for Lee Jofa, including a coffee table carved from solid limestone and a low slung lounge chair with spherical solid oak feet.
Serena Dugan Studio released a vibrant line of artisanal fabrics called Indian Block Print. Crafted using centuries-old block-printing techniques, the series offers five abstract geometric patterns in multiple colorways, such as the damaskesque Khiva and the polka-dotted Olga.

Parete dropped a maximalist pair of wallpaper patterns dubbed Show Me Your Peacock and Swinger From the ’60s. The former features a bold flora and fauna motif against a pale gray ground, while the latter boasts a trippy op art print in graduating shades of pink and green.
Italian lighting brand Barovier & Toso called on multidisciplinary designer Luca Nichetto to create two contemporary Venetian crystal suspension lamp designs. The first, Vallonné, showcases soft, mouth-blown curves and a tapered core to conceal the light source, while the second, Vallonné Opale, is made using a jacketing technique that gives it a milky opalescent hue.

New Ravenna released a dreamy series of biomorphic mosaic designs named Biome. Drawing inspiration from shapes, textures and motifs found in nature, the artful collection spans 15 patterns composed of handcut stones swathed in iridescent and metallic glazes, such as the agateesque Geode and the botanical Queen Palm.
Humanscale unveiled a new eco-friendly design by Todd Bracher Studio. Composed of nearly 22 pounds of recycled materials—including 10 pounds of upcycled ocean plastics—the customizable Path task chair comes in an array of hues and sleek but sustainable upholstery options, such as chrome-free leather and a woven fabric made from post-consumer polyester, and boasts an adjustable ergonomic frame to boot.
