4 Fabulous Design Discoveries for May
A peek inside the latest buzz-worthy design news happening in the area.
California designer Jay Jeffers’ talent for mixing genres, textures and patterns is evident in his new 28-piece collection, celebrating luxury lighting, furniture, wall décor and accessory brand Arteriors’ 35th anniversary. “With each collaboration, I prioritize quality and craftsmanship,” says Jeffers. “This third collection with Arteriors reflects their robust network of artisans that make each product come to life. Each piece is handcrafted and meant to feel collected over time. The lighting and accessories are adaptable to different environments, whether it be a sprawling luxury resort or a compact New York apartment.”
Paying tribute to her Greek heritage, Charleston designer Cortney Bishop has released a second series in her bespoke textile line, Harwood House with Holland & Sherry. “The new Kalos collection weaves together a design story that honors my Greek roots and praises the art of craft-made, woven textiles,” notes Bishop. Kalos is offered in a range of colorways reminiscent of the earthy landscapes and golden sunsets of Greece. Available exclusively through Holland & Sherry showrooms.
York Wallcoverings teamed up, once again, with Rifle Paper Co. to produce a second collection of fresh florals, sophisticated toiles and small prints. Rifle Paper Co.’s cofounder and Chief Creative Officer Anna Bond notes, “Our newest collection with York Wallcoverings features new prints and new colorways of a few of our favorite classics. We’re always looking to innovate with each of our wallpaper collections, and we’re especially excited about our first-ever surfaceprint design, a technique that uses a century-old press for a finish that’s reminiscent of artisan, hand-painted wallcoverings. We hope these designs inspire people to bring color and prints into their homes in a new way.” Highlights include the bright blooms of Strawberry Fields (shown here) and Menagerie Toile, a dramatic two-color print with dark hues and metallic accents.
Trumbull-based Interlude Home recently introduced its Coastal Collection—a modern interpretation of beach chic. The edited selection of upholstery and case goods includes 58 frames and nine fabric choices. Shapely pieces are wrapped in soothing hues of creams, blues and greens in colors like Foam, Marsh, Surf, Oyster and Shell with accents of acrylic or white-washed oak. And, great news, the pieces are available to ship in four weeks! Creative Director Wendy King Phillips sums up her inspiration, “In imagining and creating our new Coastal Collection, I looked to the sea, salt and sand.”
