Gary Friedman, RH Chairman and CEO, commented, “We believe that vision is everything, and this new source book is filled with both vision and visionaries who are redefining the modern market, and inspiring a new and contemporary way to live."
Gracing the cover of the new source book is the Channel Dining Table by innovative artisans Thomas Bina and Ed Robinson (Los Angeles), a pure linear form composed of American white oak bisected by a continuous channel, juxtaposed with a monolithic metal base.
This season’s many distinctive statement pieces are a reflection of the leading Modern visionaries of our day. Renowned designer and curator John Birch of WYETH (New York) deftly combines clean lines and classic tufting echoing 1950s American minimalism with the Metropolitan Sofa; eminent interior designer Vicente Wolf’s (New York) signature spare and sumptuous style can be seen in the Modern Bali Bed – a reproduction of a Ming Dynasty-inspired piece he created for his own home in the Hamptons; and internationally-acclaimed designer Timothy Oulton’s (London) penchant for relaxed modernism is reflected in the Como Modular Sofa – a customizable sectional offering generous proportions and low-slung comfort.
The new collection also brings numerous standout lighting introductions, including distinguished designer Jonathan Browning’s (San Francisco) Vendôme, Arcachon, Montesquieu and Marignan Chandeliers – the latter of which is a stunning interpretation of industrial, machined metal chain crafted of sand-cast brass with more than 1,000 interlocking crystals; as well as Rudi Nijssen & Dominique Sente’s (Belgium) handblown Glass Globe Mobile Collection, where transparent spherical forms appear to float on modern metal architecture.
Additional noteworthy introductions include the Sand Walnut and Brass Collection by celebrated designer Barlas Baylar of Hudson Furniture (New York), whose warm, minimalist pieces for living and dining are impeccably crafted of American walnut encased in lustrous brushed brass; and the Cela Shagreen and Solid Brass Collection, a luxe modernist design reflecting a refined 1970s aesthetic by Charlie Zagaroli (High Point).
Paying homage to icons of the past, RH Modern also unveils exclusive reissues of some of the most sought-after pieces of the modern era, such as venerated lighting pioneer Robert Sonneman’s (New York) 1967 Orbiter II™ Task Floor and Table Lamps, now rendered in solid brass as well as polished nickel; legendary American architect and furniture designer Adrian Pearsall’s (New York) Curve, Serpentine and Stratus Sofas; midcentury master Milo Baughman’s (New York) Model #1283-113 Swivel Chair, 1965; and in tribute to famed 20th century Italian designer Mariano Fortuny (Venice), the Fortuny® Gold-Leaf Icaro Chandelier.
RH’s continued collaboration with renowned rug scion Ben Soleimani (Los Angeles and London) yields 20 exclusive collections. Celebrating his passion for minimalism and abstract tonal designs, Soleimani pairs organic textures with lush, silken yarns and subtle metallic accents that blend tradition and innovation with the perspective of a contemporary artist.
