HOLLY HUNT will introduce six new pieces to the iconic Vladimir Kagan collection. Designed by Chris Eitel —Kagan’s long-time apprentice and protégé, now director of design and production for the Vladimir Kagan Design Group—the Forward Collection will launch during Design Miami and roll out to other showrooms in spring 2023. The series includes the Sculpted Wood Loveseat/Closed Back, featuring a whiplash curve clad in stacked and carved walnut, a dramatic design element reminiscent of Kagan’s limited-edition Annecy sofa.
Artist Sarah Von Dreele launches four new handpainted fabric patterns in January 2023, which will also be introduced as wallpapers in the spring. “Much of my work is about interconnectivity and relationships,” shares Von Dreele, “among ourselves, others, and a broader landscape. Little Deb is named after a dear friend from art school, a Northern California native who grew up in an almond orchard. After art school, Little Deb lived on Nantucket where we often picked native island grasses for inspiration, and the color and form of this pattern remind me of the island’s winter landscape.” Pictured in Lady Grey, also available in Almond and Salt Meadow.
Healdsburg-based Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca will debut the new Luz y Sombra (Light & Shadow) collection. Taking its inspiration from the corners, grids, voids, and spaces of urban settings, the collection is a first-ever collaboration between company founder Sandra Jordan and her nephew, Franco Ferraro, a Peruvian architect and now design & development manager for the house. The offerings include a sophisticated black sheer, an innovative felted design called Domus, sumptuous Suri bouclés, and a spectacular double-sided Suri in olive and lavender, called Oliveto.
Just ahead of the new year, designer Erik Lindstrom introduces Galaxy, a new rug inspired by galactic worlds and unexplained formations. Defined by tonal, layered paths of handknotted Tibetan wool, the rug is composed of three different pile heights. Available in four standard colorways and customizable in shape, color, size, and material.
Designer Mark D. Sikes introduces a new range to his indoor/outdoor fabric line, the Garden Collection, in February 2023. Foxglove, inspired by an antique Indian block print, is a versatile large-scale stripe and a high-performance textile with incredible hand. Shown in leaf green, also available in blue and neutral colorways.
