Approachable Architectural

Soft contemporary with all the right angles, these sleek products illustrate a look that’s pared down but still in for the coming year.


From LBL Lighting, the Candora LED chandelier balances geometric lines and an airy silhouette. Available in three sizes and three finishes, the fixture is damp-rated and dimmable. www.lbllighting.com



Badgley Mischka's Doheny Lounge Chair 1 combines two plush contemporary fabrics on a structured ebony lacquered wooden frame to create a modern look that still begs for a sit. www.badgleymischka.com



Universal’s Zephyr console wears a Solana gray driftwood finish and its base, a polished stainless steel, creates a balancing act underneath. www.universalfurniture.com


From AERIN’s new collection of decorative accessories, Harper objet in Green Brass sports a jewel tone, on trend for the new year, plus the cubic shape brings structure. www.aerin.com



Jaipur’s Tremont rug from its Asos Collection showcases a casual geometric pattern carved from 100 percent wool. Pumice Stone and Steeple Gray combine for a soft contrast. www.jaipurliving.com 


Why Architectural?

This look says “modern” without being too contemporary. It provides structure and a bit more pizzazz than transitional styles, but is still approachable and livable. 



Pacific Coast Lighting’s Nina lamp plays with negative space and mixed materials while providing nightlight illumination. www.pacificcoastlighting.com



David Phoenix’s love of architecture is evident in his Edition bookends for Hickory Chair. Intersecting planes of brass are a playful riff on international style architecture and add a sculptural component to a bookcase or desk. www.hickorychair.com



Nathan Anthony’s Elan angle sofa sits atop a metal base available in three finishes and is customizable — choose between tight or loose seat cushions — perfect for entertaining. www.nafurniture.com


Boho Reinvented

Still featuring bold pattern and color, bohemian is now more refined, expertly curated with global influences.



Selamat’s new Fela Tassel chandelier in Indigo Ombre from Justina Blakeney’s collection also comes in pink.                    www.selamatdesigns.com



Safavieh’s Palm cowhide pillow brings an earthy element with high-touch texture and a leafy frond design. www.safavieh.com



ModShop’s Havana side table is a perfect jewel-toned accent, something we’ll expect to see more of in 2018. www.modshop1.com



Theodore Alexander’s Embrace swivel chair is a Steve Leung design. The organic shape and sapphire shade make this chair a perfect fit for boho reinvented. www.theodorealexander.com



Imagine Home’s Suffolk slipcover pendant is a fun, casual standout from the brand dedicated to bringing artisan craft from developing countries to the forefront of design. www.imagine-home.com



From Celadon Art, the Woven series features four distinctive artworks with a tactile, autumnal and original slant depicting modern influences. www.celadonart.com


Why Boho?

We have, in large part, the Millennial generation to thank for this trend. Their love of travel, inheritance of furniture and decor pieces, plus their budget-consciousness, have created a look that is a curated expression of individual style — one that is eclectic and totally unique while still being collected. 



The Luna GCO bar cabinet from Worlds Away is made of gray cerused oak with antique brass hardware. The mixed-material composition fits nicely into a boho scene. www.worlds-away.com



In a rich caramel leather, CR Laine’s Chester sofa has square stitch detailing and a sleek frame to provide a grounding, tailored element. www.crlaine.com



The tribal motif in Nourison’s Navajo Collection rug comes in an unexpected color combo to provide a fresh pop. www.nourison.com
