Glam Meets Geometric
Products that are both luxurious and aesthetically interesting are always on my radar. Glamorous finishes and details such as fringe and geometric patterns, mixed with multi-purpose functionality are the perfect combination when it comes to interior design.

1. Century Furniture Meridian Sofa by Windsor Smith

2. Cal Lighting and Accessories Pendant
3. Bernhardt Furniture Labyrinth Chest

4. SHO Modern Fringe Media Cabinet

CLOTH & KIND, Tami Ramsay and Krista Nye Nicholas

Going for Gold
Lean lines in design cast an elegant silhouette and the subsequent negative space around such designs creates an atmospheric experience. We are naturally drawn to the pared down, the essential elements that quietly demand your attention, and to the refined details of shape, form, substance, texture. Our product picks each magnificently incorporate these elements of sophisticated design.

2. Schwung Home Milan Three Arm Floor Lamp

3. SHO Modern Stud Mirror
4. DeLoach Mid-Century chandelier

Ishka Designs, Anishka Clarke and Niya Bascom

Natural Beauty
We are drawn to unexpected material compositions, and our picks celebrate craftsmanship, materiality and simplicity.

1. Camerich USA Elan Sofa

2. Muranti Furniture Linecraft Pedestal Table

3. Skovby SM33 Table
4. Tivoli Classic Design

Parker Kennedy Living, Lance Jackson and David Ecton

Feeling Neutral
We saw a theme or trend of soft classic lines in neutral tones that are subtle but bold at the same time. Texture was a big key component in the designs we chose. The colors are more neutral with warm gray overtones. The collections we picked were updated with a fresh approach to traditional designs. This grouping has a beach vibe that could translate into most any interior or region. Soft coloring with pattern designs that do not take away from the piece really let it sing beautifully on its own without a lot of fuss.

Organic and Refined
Natural forms, handcrafted from exquisite materials into artful furnishings, can make elegant, whimsical, or thoroughly brilliant statements that define style in unique and unexpected ways.
