5 Amazing Furniture Collections
A master of colour and print, Matthew's collection has a lot to offer with it's show stopping vibrancy and glamour. Because of his career being very much focused on fashion, there is a very obvious crossover between his work in the two industries and it follows the logic that if you love his dresses, you'll love his furniture.
Matthew: “The collection came to life mostly by looking at the pieces I own myself; things I’ve bought from antique markets or dealers over the years and then adapted or updated. I also collect tears of anything that catches my eye so it was a fun process to build a collection that came from my favourite personal pieces.”

Morten Collection by John Jenkins
A former student at the Royal College of Art in London, you can certainly see the artistry in this next collection, named the 'Morten Collection' by John Jenkins for Heal's.
Aptly given the 'Nordic inspired' label, this is one of the few collections that have been graced that term correctly, with so many features that remind us of Scandinavian quality, style and lines.
Made of FSC certified oak, not only does every piece look incredible and functional, but a buyer can also rest in the knowledge that the materials have been sourced thoughtfully. Although this isn't a budget collection, it isn't high end either - if you'd like to have a closer look, click here.
John: “The Morten collection has been designed with the next generation of home owners in mind. Combining beauty, value and functionality, Morten has a Metropolitan feel, with elements of Scandinavian and mid 20th century design, both of which resonate with a young, design-aware customer.”
Mad Collection by Marcel Wanders
Perhaps my favourite, presenting the Mad collection by Marcel Wanders. Both incredibly sleek and vibrant, the collection comprises of; the slender wooden Mad Dining Table with an incredible, detailed floral pattern in the centre, Mad Dinning Chairs, Mad Armchairs in different sizes and with two armrests or just the one, Mad oval or round Coffee Tables, and an asymmetrical glamorous Mad Chaise. Made on the smaller side to fit a multitude of spaces, yet comfortable is the Mad Joker Chair. Regal and soft, both the Mad King and Mad Queen armchairs, with an armrest on one side and a practical wooden tray on the other, boast comfort along with a low back paired with diagonal wooden legs.
With amazing colours and carefully chosen finishes displayed across the upholstery, woods and textures used throughout, these pieces are a wonderful example of Italian mastery.

Itten by Daria Zinovatnaya
Daria Zinovatnaya is a Ukrainian Interior Designer with a focus on wonderfully bright colours and shapes from an in-depth study of the Bauhaus school and the work of Le Corbusier. Also an industrial designer, she won in 2017 a Reddot Award for her bold collection Cherokee. Her latest collection 'Itten' is an incredibly creative and inspiring development.
Daria: "This project was developed for a Norway company, which is engaged in interior design. This one bedroom apartment is located in an old house. In this work, the main task was to combine simple forms with complex color palette. I did this work, inspired by the works of suprematism, architecture and painting of the 20th century. In this work everything is harmonious in color,light and composition. The design of this apartment is very individual and not for everyone. Customers are creative people with good taste. In this work were used ready materials, and under the order. I hope that this work will inspire people to use colour in their work anymore."
&New Collection by design duo Jo Wilton and Mirka Grohn
Modern with elegant lines, &New was the 2016 Elle Deco International Design Awards winner in the young designer talent category as well as a winner of best new furniture design at Elle Decoration British Design Awards 2015.
&New uses powder-coated steel with different woods to produce a variety of furniture. The clean lines look great in modern spaces and the more compact proportions compliment modern living especially for a younger crowd.
