Three Innovative Modern Furniture Collections

We at Decoist love showcasing exquisite rooms layered with unforgettable style. But equally stunning is the modern silhouette of a beautifully designed furnishing. Thoughtfully curated materials meet the perfect blend of form and function to create a sculptural piece that may as well be a work of art. And when that furnishing is part of a larger collection, design bliss is the result! Enough talk–let’s admire three amazing modern furniture collections

Ovis by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio

We begin with a trio of items created by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, a Seattle-based design studio founded by Dylan Davis and Jean Lee. Ovis includes two chairs and a side table, all of which celebrate careful craftsmanship and the unexpected combination of materials. The Ovis Lounge Chair takes the classic sling chair to a whole new level, thanks to materials such as wood and metal tubing:

Above we see the Ovis Lounge Chair with a natural wool seat. Below we see the seat in leather. Both seat options are stunning with the metal and whitened maple frame. Which is your favorite?

Next we have the Ovis Hanging Chair, which reaches new heights thanks to cotton rope. Tassels dangle below the chair, reminding us of its suspended state:

Purchase it as is, or add an accessory–the felt head pillow with counterweight. As with the Ovis Lounge Chair, the seat is available in natural wool or leather.

From seating to surface, we now turn our attention to the Ovis Sidetable, which serves as the perfect perch for items such as vases and plants. The materials of choice: whitened maple and metal rods.

Sadly, this item is no longer available, but we had to include it since it so beautifully complements the other items in the Ovis series. All three pieces celebrate sleek form over ornate details. By doing so, the materials themselves can truly shine. [All photos in this section are by Charlie Shuck]

The Akin Collection by Anny Wang

This past week, we discovered the 3D illustrations of Anny Wang, and we were delighted to discover that this Copenhagen-based spatial designer and visual artist is also a furniture designer. Say hello to the Akin Collection. [all photos in this section by Ellika Henrikson]

The collection is anything but matchy-matchy, and therein lies its glory. As Wang states, “Objects do not necessarily belong together just because they are similar in shape and appearance. A concave and a convex surface are each opposites but fit perfectly. A square next to a sphere enhances each other’s shapes. A kinship can exist through the differences.” [images below via Dezeen]

Above we see the Float shelf, which creates a series of display areas for interesting collectibles and sculptural pieces. The shelf consists of a powder-coated tubular steel frame and solid ash shelves, both in shades of blue. Below is the Sway cabinet, which boasts a striking combination of powder-coated grey tubular steel and panels crafted from iridescent chameleon vinyl.

Copper-plated steel legs and a solid ash surface come together in the Orbit side table, which celebrates the merger of right angles and a rounded form. Bonus: the tabletop can be removed and used as a tray.

Range by Fort Standard

We end with the Range line by Fort Standard, a New York-based contemporary design studio that we profiled in August. First up: the Range Table, which seamlessly blends a solid frame, a quarter-sawn top and four dowel legs. White oak is the material of choice.

Pair your Range Table with the Range Bench, which features similar rounded edges, as well as a sturdy seating option for multiple people.

The Range Bench is available in custom sizes, as well as a variety of woods and finishes. Not in need of a new dining table? This bench isn’t just for dining room seating. It can be placed in any room of your home and accented with a comfy throw.

In addition to the Range Bench, the Range Table can also be paired with the Range Chair, a Shaker-inspired piece consisting of an American walnut frame and a stretched leather seat:

The chair is available in custom sizes, wood species and leather colors, making it possible for you to select the picture-perfect match for your space.

The simple yet strong design of the Range line makes it ideal for a variety of interiors, but be careful not to pack these furnishings in with too many other pieces. As Fort Standard’s design proves, often less is more:
