1. JMW Studio for Holly Hunt
Led by internationally acclaimed glassblower Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert, Paris-based atelier JMW Studio creates ethereal pendants that enhance any space with their sensual shape and rich glow. In its first collection with Holly Hunt, JMW Studio is presenting four unique designs made from free-blown glass: the Cloud pendant, a billowing form suspended on brass; the Winter Light, which touts a filigree technique ten years in the making; the Autumn Light, which shines through an opaque glass; and the Pilule, a two-tone orb inspired by the place where the sky touches the land. “I first discovered JMW Studio while on a sourcing trip several years ago and was blown away by the sculptural scale and incredible luminosity of their work,” says Jo Annah Kornak, SVP/Executive Director of Holly Hunt. “We couldn’t be more excited to share these extraordinary works.”
2. Gabriella Crespi for Gubi
A fashion icon and trendsetting designer, the late Milanese creative Gabriella Crespi conjured fantastical art, jewelry, and furniture still highly sought after today. Now, in celebration of what would have been her 100th birthday and 50 years after Crespi initially conceived a chic, resort-like array of rattan furniture, Gubi is putting the pieces into production. In a new collaboration with the Archivio Gabriella Crespi, helmed by the designer’s daughter, Elisabetta Crespi, the Bohemian 72 collection includes a lounge chair, three-seater sofa, and ottoman made using a decadent Dedar boucle upholstery, as well as a shapely matching floor lamp.
3. Brigette Romanek x Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams
Following her debut collection of furniture with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Los Angeles designer Brigette Romanek introduced a series of minimalist lighting fixtures. Elevating a simple form with a sculptural touch, the warm antique brass Luce chandelier, sconce, table lamp, and floor lamp will add a bit of romance to any interior design.
4. Rosemary Hallgarten for FBC London
Already esteemed for her sumptuous rugs and textiles, Rosemary Hallgarten is presenting a new line of indoor-outdoor fabrics with FBC London, which utilized the beautiful textured basics on a selection of outdoor seating introductions. The furniture purveyor used designs like the nubby Paola and painterly Positano on pieces like the edgy dining stool Edesia or plush Sol armchair.
5. Felipe Pantone x Poltrona Frau
Known for his eye-catching artworks that seem to translate the digital age into kaleidoscopic murals, sculptures, and paintings, Argentinian-Spanish talent Felipe Pantone has exported his broad-spectrum designs onto one of Poltrona Frau’s signature Archibald chairs. Crafted using the brand’s sustainable leather, the limited-edition chair is reserved to just 110 pieces in a nod to the company’s 110th anniversary this year.
6. Ghislaine Viñas for The Rug Company
Highly sought after for her vivacious interiors that combine saturated colors and myriad patterns to delightful effect, designer Ghislaine Viñas created the new Shongololo rug for The Rug Company, available in numerous monochromatic and multi-color options as well as various pile heights. “The Shongololo rug was inspired by large millipedes found in South Africa, where I grew up. As a child, I found these creatures so endearing and fascinating,” Viñas says. “Despite the playful inspiration, the rug’s rounded forms are very sophisticated. The pattern extends beyond a traditional rectangular shape, activating the unique outline.”
7. Kara Mann for Harbour
Australian outdoor furniture company Harbour has expanded its offerings with a new coastal-chic collection by Chicago designer Kara Mann. Launching in June, Formentera includes tables, chairs, and loungers featuring a sturdy base tightly woven with cord. Tables are topped with either an ocean-like Verde marble or a more tranquil natural travertine. “We love her inspiration to seamlessly blend organic materials with straight lines and curved edges, offering her special vision of relaxation to outdoor spaces,” says Nick Condos, Harbour’s founder and chief creative officer.
8. Saint Laurent x Hervet Manufacturier
Surfboards are increasingly becoming popular not just as sporting goods but as cool decorative accents. Now, Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello has teamed up with Paris furniture gallery Hervet Manufacturier to translate the form into a unique cocktail table. Made from birch and oak with a sexy zebrano inlay, the stylish selection is available exclusively at Saint Laurent Rive Droite stores in Paris and Los Angeles, which will also carry other decorative longboards made from a variety of exotic woods.
9. Martha Stewart for Baccarat
Entertaining expert Martha Stewart frequently flaunts her mixology skills, so it’s no surprise that her latest home goods collection is perfect for serving summer cocktails. Debuting on Cinco de Mayo, the Martha Collection by Baccarat includes goblets, tumblers, a pitcher, and ice bucket with a crosshatch pattern inspired by the crystal purveyor’s classic Nancy design that Stewart discovered at Skylands, her rustic Maine retreat that was formerly the summer home of Ford Motor scion Edsel Ford.
10. Yabu Pushelberg for Tribù
Yabu Pushelberg’s George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg create resort-like private residences and transportive interiors for hotels around the world as well as captivating collections for myriad furniture brands. In their third collaboration with Tribù, available through Avenue Road, the designers channeled the relaxed luxury of French Polynesia into the three-piece array, Amanu. The broad teak table is topped with a sequence of floating ceramic tiles while the matching dining chair and lounger combine a minimalist teak frame with a hammock-like sling made using a woven hemp material.
