Jenn Gibbs, senior vice president of design, spoke with Business of Home about her inspiration for and favorite highlights from the spring 2023 collection.
What’s the inspiration behind the new collection?
The collection is about bringing nature into the home through textures and natural materials translated into modern architectural shapes.
What piece are you most excited to unveil?
I’m especially excited about our Laurel sofa. It has the perfect blend of soft curves with clean modern lines and a universal appeal that can work in a myriad of aesthetics, from formal to relaxed. It’s a comfortable, versatile piece that begs you to curl up in it with a good book.
What about the collection feels fresh and exciting?
This season we experimented with new shapes that break out from the ordinary. Rooted in geometric forms, many of our pieces play off the combination of straight and curved lines.
Tell us about the materials. Are certain ones the highlight of a particular piece?
One highlight is the natural cork on our new Ambrose accent table collection. The cork is dyed and backed with a metallic paper that peeks through the naturally occurring voids in the material, giving it a sparkle. Our new Telluride accent tables feature Omani marble that is polished on top to show off its spectacular veining, which reminds me of fossils, combined with a hand-hammered edge that recalls jagged sea cliffs. The table bases are FSC-certified teak with no added finish, which allows the natural beauty of the wood to show through. And an extra bonus: You can use Telluride pieces in covered outdoor areas.
Can the collection be customized? What kind of options are possible?
All our sustainably hand-crafted, American-made upholstery can be customized with our extensive selection of fabrics, leathers and wood finishes, as well as COM. Endless possibilities! Our modular collections make it easy to create seating for any space. And we offer table and storage collections with your choice of size, top and finish.
