Fall is fast approaching, and design companies across the globe are gearing up for the season by releasing a slew of forward-thinking collections. While some brands have chosen to offer bestsellers in new shapes or patterns, others have turned to fashion and interior designers for fresh collaborations. Here are some highlights from the latest round of launches.
The Fall 2021 collection from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams launched online this week and will be available in stores on August 2. The release includes dozens of eye-catching furnishings, ranging from luxe marble cocktail tables and sculptural sofas to sleek nesting tables with sunburst-style veneers. One standout that caught our eye is the Blake media console, a bold denim-blue beauty outfitted in satin brass hardware that offers a contemporary spin on traditional campaign furniture.
Sustainable tile company Livden just launched its Painted Sands collection with two vibrant earth-toned geometric series: Deco Sol and Desert Day. Inspired by the deserts of the American Southwest, where the founders (and sisters), Hilary Gibbs and Georgie Smith, grew up, the designs recall the muted palettes and streamlined shapes of the landscape.
CB2 is expanding its partnership with the estate of Paul McCobb by adding a new furniture collection inspired by the storied midcentury modern designer. Where the initial partnership stuck to outdoor, bedroom and lighting categories, the latest assortment moves into the rest of the home, featuring 36 clean-lined pieces composed of refined materials, including hide-upholstered slipper chairs and whitewashed oak console cabinets with cane doors. One particularly striking piece is a black bow-tie-shaped sofa that is upholstered in a shearlinglike wool blend and is reminiscent of McCobb’s original angular designs.
Decorative hardware company Modern Matter just released a new line of celestial-inspired knobs and pulls called Cosmos. Longtime friends and co-founders Katherine Weeks Mulford and Lee Addison Lesley initially launched the brand in 2018 as a sister collection to their successful jewelry line, Addison Weeks, and have collaborated with designers, including Eddie Ross and Barrie Benson, on previous lines. Each piece in the latest ball-shaped collection is designed to fit comfortably inside the palm of the hand, and comes in unlacquered brass, polished nickel and burnished brass.
Malmberg Studio just added three new designs—Sunken Garden, Eclipse and Zebra-esque—to its line of vivid photographic wallcoverings. Inspired by the natural world, the brand’s founder, photographer Robert Malmberg, combined his still-life photography and paintings to create each pattern.
Iconic interior designer Bunny Williams just launched a new collection for Currey & Company. The stunning six-piece assortment includes a gold feather-shaped wall sconce, a glass-beaded chandelier, and a black wrought iron pendant with a timeless yet modern leaf motif.
Wallcovering studio A-Street Prints teamed up with designer Rebecca Hessel Cohen’s LoveShackFancy, a fashion brand known for its ruffled frocks, to launch a new line of vintage-themed wallpaper. Teeming with nostalgic charm, each of the six prints features Cohen’s signature pastel palette and dreamy design motifs, including romantic florals and fanciful ribbons and bows.
