They&#8217;re breaking the collection down into three time periods – 50-60s, 70-80s, and the 90-00s – which will launch on three separate dates in 2018. Each period is quite different but you&#8217;ll get a peek into IKEA&#8217;s past through its 7+ decades in business.
The 50-60s Edition launches this month with a series of classic pieces in darker woods that were a reflection of the times. The triangular LÖVBACKEN became the company’s first flat-packed product after an IKEA worker thought to remove a table’s legs to get it into his tiny car. Launching in October, the colorful 70-80s Edition is

The natural world provides endless inspiration for life and design. I’ve always loved to translate those inspirations into patterns, paintings and sculptural projects using the influences I gather from travels near and far. The inspirations can be subtle and sensorial, or bold and powerful. I have an obsession with volcanoes and the minerals and crystals that form deep in caves

The collaboration brings forth a combination of &#8220;cultural and academic experiences and references&#8221; that the designers fleshed out to create their own collection of modern furnishings. The debut inspiration comes from a merging of Canadian landscapes with a Chinese aesthetic that results in a cohesive, six-piece collection of functional and versatile pieces.
The designers looked to their homeland of Canada with all of its natural beauty, like Algonquin Park, the Bruce Peninsula, and Fogo Island, and wanted to showcase that in the collection. They also found inspiration in traditional Chinese gardens that are full of rocks, plants, water, and structures. The monochromatic collection is made from powder-coated stainless steel

                                Outdoor rug design hasn&#8217;t progressed too far in recent years with mostly basic options available to choose from. But like indoors, our outdoor spaces aren&#8217;t necessarily boring and basic so why should the rug be? Brazilian outdoor brand <a href="https://www.tidelli.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Tidelli</a> has developed an <a href="https://www.tidelli.com/simulator/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">online simulator</a> that allows you to create your own custom outdoor rug made of nautical rope that doesn&#8217;t have to be boring. The simulator is ridiculously easy to use and it gives your tons of options, starting with shape (round or square/rectangular), then size (anything you want), number of colors (56!), an option of two styles, and even a choice in borders (if it&#8217;s square or rectangular). When you&#8217;re done choosing, it pulls together a composite of what the rug will look like. If you like it and want to buy it, you fill in your info and you&#8217;ll be contacted to place an order.

The environmentally-friendly handmade rugs have a cozy wool-like feel to them, but they’re durable and easy to take care of so they’re perfect for a patio or even an high traffic indoor space that needs a rug. Best part is that you just shake them or hose them off to get them clean. Plus they start at just $65 for a 2’x3′ size and go all the way up to 10’x12′ for larger spaces.

The colorful series includes rugs, tables, stools, ceramics, and original artwork, featuring abstract designs that reference sports culture through graphic patterns that have a faint hint of familiarity.
The hand-tufted rugs display bold colors and sport court-like patterns that are just abstract enough to be really cool focal points in a room without screaming SPORTS. The dining, kitchen, and coffee table designs feature tabletops made of printed laminate housed between two pieces of glass and clear and tinted acrylic columns as the stands. The Hoop Stool comes with a custom upholstered basketball leather seat atop a steel “net” that’s made from water jet cut steel.

The designs – Vestry, West Side, Tribeca, and Freeman Alley – feature abstract, geometric patterns, each available in five unexpected color ways. West Side was inspired by Viñas’ own 8th floor loft with the busy traffic on the West Side highway contrasting the slow pace of the Hudson River. Vestry is named after

Best of ICFF 2018: Favorites from Skram, Bernhardt Design, RISD Students, and More

                                The end of May means the end of ICFF 2018, the yearly exhibition in NYC that fills the Javits Center with row after row of contemporary furnishings. We scoped the aisles in search of some new products and designs and we finally narrowed it down to a manageable number to present as our favorites from this massive show. Take a look.

AlexAllen Studio presented the Chord Cluster chandelier which features semi-circular lit shapes that resemble the swags you find on crystal chandeliers. These droplet lights by Atelier Alain Ellouz appear lightweight and delicate despite being made out of alabaster. Actor and all-around talent, Terry Crews, is back with another fantastic collection

                                I’m in the midst of updating my home but can I just say, the paralysis from the sheer amount of options to be made is real. There’s also an overwhelming abundance of inspiration out there that I’m finding it hard to go down the path of a specific interior design style when lots of different styles appeal to me. In other words, mo’ options, mo’ problems.

GAN Partners with Neri&Hu on a New Sofa Typology

The collection, called <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/salone-invitation-2018/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">LAN</a>, challenges the idea of what we normally think of in a sofa by breaking it down into modules that can fit together in various ways.
LAN also sets itself apart with an indigo color palette, which inspired its name as ‘lan’ means blue in Mandarin. The rug is an important part of their LAN equation and the perfect spot to organize the pieces around. The seating modules rest close to the floor and can be changed up by adding different cushions and a tray to hold a drink. Dividers are designed to visually separate a space or to hang out behind the seating modules as a backdrop.

All four new rugs were designed by Central Saint Martin’s graduate and in-house designer Maja Johansson Starander. The first, Freyja, is hand tufted with a chunky wool which is felted and twisted into its final curly form. “Freyja is a textile interpretation of moss and lichen, of stone, soil and mineral,” says a statement from the brand. The tufted loops are left uncut at different heights to create an uneven surface,

New York City based designer Joe Doucet partnered for the second time with Odabashian on a collection of handcrafted rugs that he designed in support of the Transgender community. The Transcendence rug series came about as a response to the ongoing challenges faced by transgender people who are bravely living their truth in a society that often shuns them with the hope that we can rise above and move forward with open minds. The bold, four-piece collection aims to be an example that design can transcend and be used for good. In a measure to show just that, they’re donating a portion of the sales proceeds to the ACLU.

Ascend \\\ Hand Tufted Wool

From Joe Doucet:
The uniting theme of the series became Transcendence. I wanted to capture the beauty of outwardly becoming what you are internally. The four rugs each attempt to convey
