A round-up of the latest collections hitting showrooms this spring
LOUNGE IN LUXURY
The back of the Soho sofa can be adjusted so users can enjoy regular or extra-wide seat depth. Handmade in Italy with a solid hardwood frame and clad in top-grain Italian leather, Soho is available in two- and three-seat options and an array of colors. At Theodores in Upper Georgetown.
IN THE ROUND
Jean-François Marchou designed the playful Jules table for Roche Bobois in three sizes, ranging from 15 to 29 inches in diameter. Made of solid oak and beech veneer on plywood, the table features a lacquered top, shown in Prunelle purple, Petrole blue and Fuchsia pink. At Roche Bobois in Friendship Heights.
CURL UP IN COMFORT
Inspired by the lightness and carefree spirit of a porch swing, Inga Sempe designed the Ruché sofa and chaise longue for Ligne Roset with a natural beech frame and thick, tufted cushion covered in the crinkled fabric that gives the piece its name. New in 2014, the Ruché armchair (pictured) has asymmetrical armrests that encourage lounging in all directions. At Ligne Roset in Upper Georgetown.
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
Spring cleaning? The Division bookcase from Calligaris combats clutter with cubbies that can be customized with brightly colored inserts for added personality. The white-lacquered unit is available in four sizes, and as a room divider, at Calligaris in Friendship Heights.
SERVING IN STYLE
The three-shelf Bar Cart by McLaughlin Collection evokes the era of Art Deco. The cart is crafted of clear, cell-cast Lucite with mirror-top shelves and castors. Made in the U.S., it is also available in translucent and solid colors at Hines & Company; 202-484-8200.
Designing the Vik Loungechair for Spectrum Design, Arian Brekveld was inspired by comfortable, low-slung automobile seating. Made in Holland with a light pipe frame, adjustable headrest
and fabric or partially perforated leather upholstery, the Vik is available in nine colors through Apartment Zero.
A FAITHFUL TRIBUTE
The Portuguese furniture maker Malabar found inspiration for its Fé (Faith) stool in architect Oscar Niemeyer’s 1970 design for the Cathedral of Brasilia. The stool’s metal legs pay tribute to the tree-like columns that define the iconic church, while its top is made of solid walnut and caviuna veneer marquetry.
Donghia’s Paragon end table features a stainless-steel base with a polished or warm satin finish. The glass top is available in gray with a silver stripe (pictured) or bronze with a gold stripe. At Donghia’s new Cady’s Alley showroom, scheduled to open in late February.
Poltrona Frau’s Aurora Due bed exudes sleek Italian style. Designed by Tito Agnoli, it combines a tufted-leather headboard and a wooden or metal base; the metal version comes in gunmetal black or chrome finishes. Available in more than 90 shades of leather at Poltrona Frau in Georgetown.
