Summer isn’t quite over yet, and an assortment of brands have released energetic collections just in time for one last sunny hurrah. Utilizing bold hues and playful prints, these debuts extend the delights of the season. Here are some standouts from the latest round of launches.
For its second collaboration with interior designer Linherr Hollingsworth, Kravet Couture got creative about pattern play. The Bohème II collection boasts an array of earth-toned fabrics, trims, and wallcoverings with loose, free-form geometric prints that feel both soulful and subdued. We’re currently crushing on Vibrant, a dreamy tie-dye style velvet that comes in three different colorways: Bluemoon, Honey and Mesa.
Drew Barrymore announced the launch of Flower Home paint, available exclusively on Walmart.com. The collection features 27 indoor paint colors inspired by the A-list actress’s free-spirited style, ranging from sunny Butterfly Yellow and Champagne Pink to Soft Black and Sitting Room Blue.
Textiles brand Chilewich just launched Chilewich Studio, a new series of limited-edition placemats. The eye-catching collection, called Freehand, features four bold color combinations—Parrot, Pool, Salsa and Watermelon—all composed of the brand’s signature phthalate-free TerraStrand yarns.
High-end wholesale fabric distributor Marcus William has released four fresh collections right before summer’s end. Along with the Animal Instinct series and the graphic patterns of Artemis, the debuts include a colorful line of saturated velvets, Savona, and our personal favorite, Mirage, which incorporates shimmering sheers and whimsical dragonfly motifs.
Roche Bobois introduced a collaboration with visionary Spanish designer Eugeni Quitllet. Inspired by biomorphism and natural forms, the Pulp collection features eight shapely furniture pieces, including rounded consoles, fluffy armchairs and a pair of curvy dining tables.
Lee Jofa rolled out a commanding collection of statement fabrics and wallcoverings called Mindoro. The line is teeming with archival-inspired floral patterns and whimsical chinoiserie motifs—we’re especially fond of the bold palm-leaf-patterned Calapan print (which comes in five versatile colorways).
Southern California–based lighting company Cerno debuted a new collaboration with ceramic artists Naomi and Scott Schoenherr of Laguna Beach. The Creo and Dea ceramic shades are handcrafted from natural, unglazed terra cotta and feature simple organic silhouettes inspired by the surrounding SoCal landscape.
New Orleans furniture brand Doorman unveiled a line of squiggly chairs in collaboration with textile company Palm Orleans. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, the Coliseum club chair boasts a zigzagging aluminum base in a choice of black, bronze or white, and a sun-resistant fabric seat in three acrylic-dyed colorways.
Ashley Stark Kenner, the creative director of luxury carpet brand Stark, has teamed up with sustainable knitwear brand NakedCashmere to release a plush assortment of neutral-hued throws and bed coverings. The 18-piece collection, named Naked at Home With Ashley Stark, consists of blankets, throws and pillows in pure cashmere, including the super-sleek Leah striped sham.
Eco-conscious design company Goodee just added three new styles to its wildly popular line of ethically sourced and sustainably produced pillows. Designed by co-founders Byron and Dexter Peart, the Leopard pillow comes in four spotted patterns handcrafted from post-consumer PET bottles, while Woven Square and Lumbar are available in coral, emerald and marble hues with contrast piping.
The latest collection from wallcovering brand Area Environments is an ode to adventure and whimsy. The creative studio asked six unique artists and illustrators, including Yao Cheng, Dusa Jesih and Anna Walker, to create kid-friendly wallpaper designs, and the end result is children’s-book-worthy. One standout option, Rooted by Suyao Tian, features a bold nature-inspired watercolor motif that’s playful enough for a child’s room, but equally impactful in a grown-up space.
