Yinka Ilori’s bold embrace of color in furniture and public spaces yields exuberant, narrative-rich patterns. Naturally, those effusive motifs define the AD100 multidisciplinary artist and designer’s first collection of commercial fabrics and wallpapers. Dreamed up for Momentum Textiles & Wallcovering—where Ilori joins a collaborator list that includes Sheila Hicks, Shantell Martin, and Aleksandra Gaca—the eight designs were unveiled at NeoCon earlier this month and revolve around meditative graphic repeats, a springtime palette of saturated solids, and a kaleidoscopic union of arches, triangles, spheres, and chevrons that draw from Ilori’s British Nigerian heritage.

In 2020, New York–based AD100 studio Gachot teamed up with Waterworks on the minimalist Bond collection. Now founders John and Christine Gachot, who also tackled the recent revamp of Waterworks’ New York flagship, are back at it with Finot. Taking cues from fashion, modernist sculptures, and industrial design, the silhouettes exude a sophisticated swagger. Spanning more than 50 styles—a dramatic flush-mount cubed shower head; curvaceous spout; and slim, double-tooled lever handle included—the ensemble of contemporary bath and kitchen fittings is complemented by lighting, hardware, and glass shelves.

Danny Kaplan, founder of the eponymous studio centered on lighting and sculptural furniture, and Vince Patti, the mastermind behind furniture design and fabrication workshop Lesser Miracle, first met in 2023. They reveled over shared interests for ancient techniques and Jean-Michel Frank, and before long their four-piece Delf collection was born. Fusing Kaplan’s ceramics expertise and Patti’s woodworking skills, Delf comprises the centerpiece Paravent bed, designed with a cocooning hinged oak headboard and trimmed with a smattering of Art Deco–reminiscent inlay tiles. The collection also includes the open-back Brion chair, with nods to Tobia and Carlo Scarpa, and the amorphous Talisman and Clover side tables.
