Michael Anastassiades x Herman Miller

Inspired by Scandinavian and Japanese minimalism, the sculptural Comma chair by Michael Anastassiades for Herman Miller is intended for dining rooms of all kinds. Quiet and available as bar or counter stools, the design is crafted in solid walnut, oak or painted beech. The barely there wooden carpentry combines the curved backrest and seat. hermanmiller.com

Shadé Akanbi x Chasing Paper

Brooklyn-based textile artist Shadé Akanbi is known for reinterpreting indigenous designs, namely those that reflect her native Nigeria or a myriad of trips abroad. In her new collection with Chasing Paper, the artist and creative director of clothing brand Printed Pattern People brings her graphic flair to five memorable patterns. Favorites include the color-contrasting Cleo Stripe, which offers a dose of style that seems to carry over to the walls, as well as the small-scale cartoons of Petit Twigs and Paint Dob Camo. chasingpaper.com

The Comtesse chandelier by Paloma Contreras for Visual Comfort.

Paloma Contreras x Visual comfort

A love for modern French design is woven into the 10 families of sculptural chandeliers, sconces, pendant lights, and table and floor lamps that Houston-based designer Paloma Contreras imagined for Visual Comfort. (Actually, the collaboration was a bit of a homecoming for Contreras: Prior to her design fame, she was marketing director for the lighting brand.) While the Comtesse fixture plays with concave and nearly 40-inch spheres of spun brass, the Olivier style experiments with large hexagonal tubes. Orsay, another favorite design, scatters light through a chic conical profile before releasing it upwards, a nod to the Giacometti-type chandeliers inside Parisian restaurant Loulou. visualcomfort.com
