A New Graphic Rug Collection — And the Posters That Inspired It

Though Alex Proba is ready to finish her four-year-long A Poster a Day project and move on to something else, she had so many amazing graphics — in so many interiors-friendly colors — that she realized she ought to think of a way for the posters to live on. This week, Proba is launching a series of eight rugs, their patterns culled from her vast poster archive, and that's just the start of it.

Herman Miller’s New York Flagship is a Design Store for the Way We Live Now

Five years in the making, the new Herman Miller flagship opened on Park Avenue South in New York just before Thanksgiving, at the same address where George Nelson once had his offices. The new store nods towards Herman Miller's storied place in American design but more often than not, it also looks forward, both re-contextualizing vintage items and archival Herman Miller pieces in a fresh, more modern context and incorporating some of our current favorite independent designers and brands,

A Creative Director Brings His Fashion-World Cred to Candles

We fell in love with Overose, a new Parisian candle and perfume house founded by Matthieu Belhandouz, the moment we saw the photos in this post. Belhandouz studied fashion design at La Cambre and had a brief stint at Stella McCartney, both of which could explain his keen eye for visuals and his acute understanding of the importance of branding.

This May Be the Coolest Furniture Collection We’ve Ever Seen

The Vaalbeek Project, new suite of furniture by one of our longtime favorite designers, Tomás Alonso, for the Belgian gallery Victor Hunt, is a teaser for an interior Alonso is working on in Belgium, to be completed next spring. It includes new editions of some older designs — such as that insanely chic, stackable rose and green marble coffee table from 2014 — but each piece feels like an instant classic.

If You Love Music and Minimalist Interiors, Read This

If you tried to give one of us a huge, tech-y looking subwoofer that clashed with our vintage B&B Italia sectionals, we'd laugh you right out of the room. That, in a nutshell, is what we love about Sonos: Their speakers are designed not to stand out, but to blend in with and complement your minimalist interior. And that's why their newly launched White Sub — the understated square object you see in between Jill's copper Yield planter and hand-carved James Carroll ladder above — isn't fancy- or crazy-looking, it's just... white.

Inside the Quirky, Vintage-Inspired Home of Two Epic Design Collectors

We featured Wary Meyers' incredible trove of finds in our 2012 book Paper View, and we were delighted to see some of those items pop up in the house tour Curbed published this week, including the Alex Tavoularis painting Linda's parents picked up at a Florida estate sale and the abstract canvases John was creating at the time. We've been tracking their home — a 1960s-era ranch that was renovated in the '80s — on Instagram since the couple bought it three years ago, and these pictures show the space in its full glory.

From Light & Ladder, Sculptural Objects for Every Room in Your House

Brooklyn designer Farrah Sit may have left behind a career in the fashion world long ago, but the lessons from her time there still bear a mark. Her work — both for her eponymous furniture line and for her home accessories brand Light & Ladder — has always focused on creating sculptural volumes that shift and change according to the viewer's perspective, just like a garment. Her latest homeware collection for Light & Ladder is no different — a series of sculptural planters, candleholders, vases, mugs, and trinket boxes so lovely and different they nearly transcend those categories.

Kick Off Your Shoes — Literally — At Everlane’s New Pop-Up

As the once-narrow concept of the retail experience has exploded in recent years, there's been a spate of stores that purport to be something else entirely. We've seen the shop as art gallery, the shop as chicly curated apartment, and even the shop as restaurant. Everlane, the minimalist online fashion purveyor which has no stores to speak of, has launched two immersive pop-ups in New York this year that continue the trend.

Kelly Behun x Barneys: A Patterned Pop-Up, Where Maximalism Prevails

For Barneys New York, Kelly Behun and her team have created an immersive pop-up and capsule collection, on view through October 31st, that translates the studio's super graphic design aesthetic into a collection of items for the home. Called A Kook Milieu, the pop-up was inspired in part by the pattern and decoration–obsessed 1970s New York gallerist Holly Solomon, who was known for blurring the line between art and design.
