“I'm interested in geometric forms these days, and while we often work in larger tone-on tone patterns, I wanted these mid-scale, simple shapes to work together in a more multicolored textile,” textile designer Sina Pearson says of Confetti, one of two patterns in her aptly named new Jubilee collection from her eponymous line. “I looked at this project as a puzzle, mixing the various light- and dark-colored rectangles in a balanced yet lively manner."

A solid foundation is the key to everything—especially if you’re talking about buildings or rooms. With that in mind, designer Jennifer Ridel launched Foundation, a line of furnishings with good bones and great lines that can provide a sturdy base on which to build a room.
The pieces are all handmade in Ridel’s shop, which just happens to be located behind the main showroom in Van Nuys (she sells to professional and non-pro clients alike). “We can push the quality,” she explains, and adds that all of her suppliers are local too. Her craftspeople don’t use staple guns, and the pieces all feature cotton filling, jute banding and eight-way hand ties. “You feel the difference when you sit on the furniture,” she notes.
