Serving a style salad for Spring Market

Netflix celebrity, entrepreneur and interior designer Bobby Berk grows wings with his first furniture collection, created in collaboration with A.R.T. Furniture. The Queer Eye star dubs the new living room, dining room, bedroom, and outdoor items as home essentials, and says they're makeover-ready for placements in upcoming episodes of the popular streaming series.

Century Furniture partners with AD100 designers Jessie Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier and Company Interiors, to offer over 50 new designs in the bedroom, dining, occasional, and upholstery categories. The pair, also authors of Carrier and Company: Positively Chic Interiors (Vendome Press), is known for injecting unexpected elements into otherwise relaxed and modern room settings.

Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, and Joseph Altuzarra are only a few of the high fashion names interior designer Ryan Korban has worked with. His new furnishings collection for EJ Victor is informed by the many custom pieces he's designed for his A-list clientele. The showroom will exclusively present Ryan Korban x Dedar Milano custom fabrics on Korban's upholstery designs.

The details count, and iconic designer Alexa Hampton sated her appetite for them in a fresh partnership with Theodore Alexander. Exploring new materials, finishes, and craft, Hampton developed a comprehensive furnishings collection of over 120 items she'd like interior designers to reference for both basic and statement pieces. Though design is in her DNA, Hampton relentlessly pursues her own path.

European modern describes the signature aesthetic for a debut furniture collection from award-winning, Houston-based designer Nina Magon for Universal Furniture. Magon's infectious passion for high design peppered with a touch of chic glamour will be focused on the whole home manufacturer's large base of retail partners and growing interior designer trade.

Blending luxury with contemporary style, Hall of Fame designer Lauren Rottet partnered with Visual Comfort to develop the Fascio lighting collection. Rottet cites the California ‘Light and Space’ artists of the 1960s, “and their dynamic use of light, shape, mirrors, and surface materials” as inspiration. Her interior design work was also informative, since Rottet regards lighting as an integral design component.
