Designer collaborations energize brands

Chicago is home to Frank Ponterio, but the designer recalls his family’s Italian roots in a new collection for luxury lighting and accent furnishings brand Arteriors, inspired by life’s pace in the Old World. Ponterio channels the special ease among friends and family who’ll drop by and stay awhile.

Savannah is the muse for Californian Barclay Butera’s new outdoor furnishings collection for Castelle. Setting his sights on pretty, Butera aims focus on iconic details: classic bamboo references, robin’s egg blue, and tropical-inspired Chinoiserie. The genteel lifestyle need not remain exclusive to the South.

Mark D. Sikes collaborates with Codarus exhibitor and textile genius Annie Selke on a new line of bedding and rugs as richly diverse as America itself. Aptly dubbed Coast to Coast, the collection runs the gamut from traditional stripes to batiks and ikats, and back to classic checks and florals.

You can’t miss the lilt in designer Mally Skok’s South African accent, who debuts The Well-Traveled Home, a capsule furnishings collection with Dowel Furniture this season. Each of the nine new items express Skok’s values for simplicity, functionality, and attention to detail.

Designer and social media star Becki Owens prepares to share her coastal-Cali beach vibe via growing lighting resource Hudson Valley. Owens’ applies her signature, modern feminine style to a collection of sconces, pendant lamps and chandeliers, harkening mid-century shapes and Bohemian influences.

Wildwood taps the free spirit of Laura Park in a collection of colorful ceramic lamp bases and garden stools. For her debut in this medium, the Charlotte-based designer and painter nurtures a happy mix of pastel shades represented in abstract brush strokes to create surefire room brighteners.
