March has arrived and if the latest launches are any indication, we’re more than ready for spring. While some brands geared up for the warm weather months by dropping outdoor-ready fabric and tableware collections, others turned to free-spirited springtime motifs for seasonal inspiration. From kaleidoscopic splatter-print rugs to surrealist underwater-themed wallpaper patterns, here are some standouts from the recent round of debuts.
Harwood House, a textile line by Charleston, South Carolina–based designer Cortney Bishop, released its latest collection in collaboration with Holland & Sherry. The series, named Kalos, offers 16 woven designs inspired by the earthy hues and golden sunsets of Greece, including the graphic Prism pattern and a whimsical horse and bird motif named Quilted Folklore.
The Rug Company tapped Mary Katrantzou for a characterful collaboration. The series, entitled A Life in Pattern, boasts two free-spirited designs in vibrant colorways, including the ombre Feather Marble—which draws inspiration from the fashion designer’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection—and the abstract Splatter.
London–based artist (and former Gucci designer) Gergei Erdei debuted the Herculaneum collection. Drawing influence from the lavish jet-setting lifestyles of the 1970s, the handillustrated series spans textiles, tablewares and home decor accents with breezy, sun-drenched designs, such as a Greek key-patterned placemat named Greco and dinner plates in a colorful shell motif called Grotto.
Eskayel unveiled a fanciful fabric and wallpaper pattern named Water Signs. Based on a series of original paintings by artist and art director Olivia Provey, the series features a surrealist underwater motif and is available in five colorways, including creamy off-white, emerald, indigo, turquoise and pastel-hued Multi.
Arteriors called on San Francisco–based designer Jay Jeffers for a third collaboration. Influenced by midcentury design pioneers like Carlo Scarpa, Franco Albini and Jean-Michel Frank, the 28 piece collection spans furniture, lighting and decor pieces punctuated by sculptural silhouettes and vintage accents, including a two-toned mirror lined in antique brass named Torino and a pewter-finished pendant with layered ribbed glass shades dubbed Holm.
Brunschwig & Fils launched a delightful collection of outdoor-friendly fabrics called En Vacances II. The series features six sprightly designs in multiple colorways, including the iconic Les Touches pattern (available in shades such as teal and green), and our current crush, a playful paisley print named Rougier.
Los Angeles–based designer Cindy Greene (cofounder of cult fashion brand Libertine) released a new interiors collection called Sabel. Inspired by everything from classic cinema to historic architecture, the energetic assortment offers 10 wallcoverings in multiple colorways—such as a bold botanical pattern studded with snakes and spiderwebs dubbed Absolem and the squiggle-filled Eunoia Moss, and a suite of throw pillows and brass receptacles in decorative shapes.
Bunny Williams debuted a garden-friendly spring collection for Ballard Designs. The sunny series features an assortment of charming outdoor designs with classical appeal, such as an iron gazebo with a slatted top, latticed hanging planters and a powder-coated aluminum dining table set modeled after one of the legendary designer’s favorite flea market finds.
Tile Club launched a glamorous new collection named Art Deco. Inspired by the exuberant geometric motifs of the Roaring ‘20s, the series features three ornamental marble designs with brass inlay accents, including a sunburst mosaic dubbed Wheel Deco and a bold linear pattern called Geo Deco.
Pavilion unveiled its Salita outdoor furniture series in time for spring. The handcrafted collection features woven sofas, sectionals, chaises, club chairs, ottomans, loveseats and aluminum-framed tables configurable into intimate arrangements, and are composed of totally recyclable—and 100-percent water-resistant—materials.
