TAKE IT OUTSIDE
As summer heats up, JANUS et Cie’s new offerings are in full swing. The brand, specializing in outdoor furniture, reimagines some of its most iconic collections and adds all-new designs to the market. Noting gray’s trending moment, the outdoor experts introduce Smoke to their color wheel. Also new are the Rock Garden—inspired by traditional Japanese gardens—and Rush—designed by CEO Janice Feldman and carefully weaved with JANUSfiber in the Smoke finish—collections. “Now,” she says, “it’s clear we have brought the high standards and expectations of interior furnishings to the outdoors.”
“Now more than ever, we are reflecting on the meaning of home and creating a healthy environment for our families,” says Allison O’Connor, president and CEO of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. “Families are creating rooms that could be multifunctional environments so they can work, teach and gather comfortably while maximizing their space,” she says. For fall, the brand offers flexible pieces like its classic Parsons tables (that can do double duty for WFH spaces) paired with the new Remy and Gage chair collections. In new finishes like brushed brass and pewter, these are the new classics for home.
Reinterpret, readorn and reembellish are the trends that have inspired French furniture-maker Roche Bobois’ newest collection. With the goal of reducing the environmental impact of its production, the company turned its focus to reinterpreting standout pieces from past collections in honor of its 60th anniversary. Designers have incorporated fresh colors, materials and dimensions into the bestselling furnishings to ensure the collection maintains a low environmental profile.
