Martyn Lawrence Bullard Captures Old-World Glamour in New Decor Collection
AD100 decorator Martyn Lawrence Bullard is well familiar with all things luxury, having designed for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Cindy Crawford, Cher, RuPaul, and the Kardashian and Jenner clan. Now, Bullard is putting that expertise to work for SV Casa in a lavish new line of home accessories. The collection highlights old-world glamour, with nods to Hollywood and the Palais Royal in Paris, as well as 18th-century chinoiserie. The pieces include a range of bathroom accessories, decorative boxes, and cocktails trays, all available at Harrods and LuxDeco.
VidiVixi Launches a New Lighting Line
Mexico City–based studio VidiVixi has entered a new chapter following the departure of its former creative director Mark Grattan. So, the release of a new, three-piece VidiVixi Lighting Series 01—a three-piece, Art Deco–inspired collection marrying glass, resin, and brass—is a momentous occasion for the brand as it transitions to a new model of working with collaborators. The brainchild of studio director Adam Caplow, Lighting Series 01 launched last month at Galerie Philia during Zona Maco.
RH Unveils Its 2022 Outdoor Collection
Just in time for rising spring temperatures, on March 17, home furnishings powerhouse RH released its 2022 outdoor collection. The trove of weather-ready designs includes wicker seating from Harrison and Nicholas Condos, sculptural, corded chairs from Ann Marie Vering, and teak loungers from Mario Ruiz. Expect a range of chic and understated designs, all of which are pretty enough to stand on their own, but won’t compete with the surrounding landscape. The full range of products is now available on the RH website.
Fülhaus Taps Brady Tolbert for Its First Designer Collab
Canadian furnisher Fülhaus has announced its first-ever designer collaborator: interior designer Brady Tolbert. Curating over 600 pieces, Tolbert has culled Fülhaus product into three collections: Sinuous Forms: an Ode to Vladimir Kagan; Residency in Marfa; and the New Victorian. As its name suggests, the first of these lines pays homage to legendary designer Vladimir Kagan, and is filled with curvaceous, ’70s- and ’80s-inspired forms in bouclé, suede, and sheepskin. The Marfa collection, meanwhile, uses bright fabrics and leather, wood, and iron to evoke the raw, energetic modernism of Donald Judd’s foundation in the Texas town. For aesthetes more interested in a moodier vibe, the New Victorian offers designs in wood, brass, and velvet with black accents. “Brady pushes the envelope of home design, so working with him felt like a natural fit,” Fülhaus founder Andria Santos says. “With a focus on natural materials, earthy neutrals, and thoughtfully chosen pieces, Brady’s design aesthetic echoes this generation’s desire to return to the natural world.”
