The holiday season is in full swing, and there’s an abundance of dashing debuts to help you deck the halls this season. From cactus-based textiles to solid marble lounge chairs, here are 10 standouts from the latest round of launches.
At Miami Art Week, Kelly Wearstler debuted the Nudo collection in collaboration with Arca. The series spans 22 stunning sculptural marble designs with eye-catching knotted and rounded forms, such as a tubular console crafted from Rojo Alicante and a sinuous side table made in your choice of Ice Jade, Calcite Blue and Verde Tikal stones.
Natasha Baradaran released an innovative line of plant-based vegan leathers called Livwell. The collection boasts three sustainable patterns made entirely from cacti, including the spotted Ophelia, the trompe-l’oeil-esque Pebbled and the versatile Natasha’s Canvas.
At Design Miami, Objective Gallery showcased a collection of 15 pieces from 11 contemporary artists called “Reincarnation: New Objects, Old Soul.” Highlights included a fluorescent green glass stool by Viktor Udzenija, a hand-cast bronze mirror by William Guillon and an amorphous dining set with mismatched mottled velvet chairs by Charlotte Kingsnorth.
The Shade Store unveiled its second collaboration with A-list designer Sheila Bridges. The collection features six abstract fabric patterns inspired by the tastemaker’s favorite childhood memories, including the arrow-clad Archer, the two-toned Pin Wheel and a window-treatment-ready adaptation of her iconic Harlem Toile De Jouy motif.
Oakland, California–brand Model No. presented Endless Loop—its collaboration with Prowl Studio and Mike Han—at Design Miami. The series boasts a quartet of 3D-printed furniture designs made using fallen trees, sawdust and upcycled plant waste, including a fluted table with coordinating stools and a monolithic art piece composed of locally salvaged ash wood.
De La Espada premiered two new furniture collections at The Future Perfect’s New York gallery. Twenty-Five offers 11 tactile timber designs crafted in partnership with Portuguese artisans, while a collaboration with French designer Anthony Guerrée features an assortment of geometrical furnishings.
The “Light on Water” exhibit by Aqua Creations was on full display at Design Miami. An homage to endangered freshwater lakes—particularly Doiran Lake in North Macedonia and Greece, and Lake Chad in Central Africa—the installation featured an array of shoppable free-form light fixtures with mirrored stainless steel frames and multicolored silk shades, including table and floor lamps, sconces and a hanging mobile.
Alison Rose’s Sfera mosaic for Artistic Tile is a lesson in geometry. Composed of intersecting and overlapping circles in a symphony of natural stones, the collection marks the New York designer’s third collaboration with the brand and comes in three distinct finishes including lilac, green, and black and white.
Holly Hunt added The Forward Collection to its legendary Vladimir Kagan portfolio. The line includes six contemporary furniture pieces inspired by the late designer’s midcentury-modern style, such as the double-crescent shaped Big Picture sofa and an acrylic coffee table with a built-in storage box dubbed Bienenstock.
In honor of its 10th anniversary, Nest Studio introduced two elegant hardware designs into its longstanding Legacy series. The first is a quatrefoil-shaped knob available in four unique finishes, while the second offers a statement-making neoclassical-style pull.
