From the Editors of Traditional Home

Arthur Arbesser Throw Blankets for Hem

Austrian womenswear designer Arthur Arbesser extends his penchant for sophisticated, geometric design toward his exclusive collaboration with Hem, the Berlin-based home furnishings brand. Offered in two patterns and in four contrasting colorways, the 100% lambswool throw blanket is bold, graphic, and perfect for blustery winter days.

George Smith

Redefining English classics, British upholsterer George Smith introduces its first collaboration with LA-based design firm Commune. The collection of handcrafted furniture, including the “Channeled,” “Turkish,” and “Wing” series, plays with proportion. Other features include simplified frames and legs, and an introduction to natural wood finishes, rich velvets, and washed Belgian linen. 

Flea Market Rx Bloom Double Stem Sconce

Although spring has not yet sprung, liven up your space with the Bloom sconce by vintage-inspired lighting company Flea Market Rx. The budding fixture is available in either single or double stem, and you can choose from a number of hand-finished patinas including raw, vintage, and ebonized brass.

Orley Shabahang Animal Carpet Collection

Take a walk on the wild side, so to speak. Inspired by the depictions of animal motifs in Persian folk art, the Animal Carpet Collection is a modern interpretation of classic designs. The collection—which features animals including lions, panthers, leopards, peacocks, and camels—employs a minimal approach with neutral-color backgrounds, interesting scale, and geometric styles.

Pollack Weave On Fabric Collection

New to Pollack comes “Weave On” – a collection of 26 fabrics that honor the American tradition of crafting handwoven coverlets. Offered in fashion-fresh colors, designs like “Vieques,” “Gifted,” “Ikebana,” and “Thoroughfare” are stylish, durable, and versatile for a number of upholstery applications.
