Favorite Things


I was hunting thorough the pages of Contract Design Magazine and Interior Design Magazine for NEOCON exhibitors.  There are some great products from the show and others not exhibiting but love what they have…


Here are a few of the choice Favorite Things!

Bernhardt’s Calibra Collection: Gorgeous collection with vol­uptuous and oversized seating, delicately hovering over faceted aluminum feet. A deep V-shaped cutout between the arms and backrest reduces the bulk and frames two thin, inlaid stripes of fabric that stretch across the back cushions.bernhardt-design1



mickus-projects-relief-series2Mickus Projects – Dense wool felt composes the seat and back, carved into gentle ridges that, as the name suggests, offer relief when you lean against them. The Relief Chair is part of a collection called solid/surface/series, which includes several other pieces of furniture experimenting with the same material.



At Neocon, Arcadia will introduce their new Achella line an expressive lounge collection featuring straight and tapered lines beautifully counterbalanced with fluid contours. Combining metal, wood and upholstered elements, Achella benches, lounge, love seat and sofa models deliver stellar form and aesthetic brilliance – not to mention a variety of options to realize a purpose beyond simply waiting.





How cool is this sofa!  From Brazil, Domingo Tortora’s line of furniture and home accessories is krafted from  natural paper and banana fiber.




I love this piece by Sylvan SF, a mahogany sideboard finished in beached parchment.

Rodolph Fabric – Love it!!  Engaging II is all about the drama, with a double-sided, laser-cut, faux suede window treatment, featuring a motif of interlocking rings. It’s 100 percent polyester, and the finished laser-cut width is 45.5 in. It can be treated to pass NFPA-701 small scale and is also available as the single-sided Engaging I.
