Clara Haneberg, Associate Style Editor, highlights five dazzling designer collaborations

Clara Haneberg, Associate Style Editor

There was no shortage of designer collaborations at Spring 2017 High Point Market. Jeffrey Bilhuber for Henredon, Michelle Workman for French Heritage, Jamie Merida for Chelsea House – and many more – offered a feast for the eyes. I’m particularly drawn to pieces that have classic roots, but with a modern bent. Here are my five favorite finds.

Cedar Row Étagère

by Jeffrey Bilhuber for Henredon

This celebrated designer is “inspired by the future and informed by the past.” The aged-red finish and gold-lacquer interior gives typical tiered shelving a playful twist. I’m chomping at the bit to accessorize it!

Manhattan Bench

by Michelle Workman for French Heritage

Sassy and sumptuous, this versatile bench boasts faux snow lynx fur and gold-leaf metal legs with flared feet. Float it in front of a bed or use it as a perch for putting on shoes in an airy closet. It’s irrefutably feminine. If you have a soft spot for burl wood and cocktails (like me), be sure to check out the collection’s Highball Bar too!

Trio Tables

by Jamie Merida for Chelsea House

If you’re a fan of puzzles, you’ll love this one. The set of three flaunts shapely gold-leaf iron bases and is available with white or black marble tops. Use together, pull them apart for individual drink tables, or scatter throughout an open space. The options are endless!

Obi Lounge Chair

by Barbara Barry for Baker

Curl up. The barrel-chair iteration with tight back, loose seat cushion, and exposed mahogany base is as eye-catching as it is comfortable. A nubby boucle fabric upholsters the plush seat – and just like that, barrel chairs are making a comeback!

Sublime Wallpaper

by Candice Olson for York Wallcoverings

Made of pure Mother-of-Pearl woven into cotton-linen backing, the pearlescent textile with no pattern repeat transforms any space into a jewel box. Think of sweet memories collecting seashells at the beach.
