New & Noteworthy is a new weekly series showcasing a select number of products that hit the HAT editors’ mailboxes during the week and catch our eye. This week on New & Noteworthy we have a candleholder by Lassen, a throw from The Itihāas Company, art from BIG Wall Decor, a wall covering from Élitis and a chair from Ngala Bespoke. Let us know what new products you think will make the biggest impact in the coming months—we want to hear from you!
Ngala Bespoke’s Yoruba chair was traditionally created for the Yoruba tribe kings and queens and embellished with thousands of seed glass beads applied to fabric covers which are then stitched or glued onto the chair frame – resulting in an exotic chair covered in elaborate beading. The modern chair features an exotic striped pattern.
With the Vibrations collection, Élitis transforms eight creations with gold, silver and copper combined with the radiance of gemstones, bringing greater depth to light with textures and a metallic effect.
Headquartered in Michigan, BIG Wall Décor challenges the notion that owning large, beautiful artwork is only for the wealthy art connoisseur. With 20+ years of experience, the BWD team uncovered a new print/framing solution that makes it easy to display large scale, on trend artwork, changing design capabilities by focusing on these values: affordable, mobile, sustainable, and artist driven.
The Itihāas Company’s Monreale cushion has been repurposed to create this throw. Created by Arab and Byzantine artists in the Middle Ages, this mosaic-like design is a likeness to the Flower of Life symbol in an all-over repeat pattern for this piece. Balanced with the quirky check pattern in the color blue the vibrant colors of this throw are created with two pieces of poly velvet and twisted fringe.
Mogens Lassen designed the Kubus candleholder in 1962, a piece once reserved solely for family and close architect colleagues. The Kubus is still crafted in Denmark, and among architects and design connoisseurs it has achieved the status of a modern international design icon.
