spring favorites: sandra

3 pc matte black flatware set
I’m always on the lookout for something a little different, a little unexpected for the table and this black finish adds drama with stark contrast—even more so if it’s my standard all-white setting. Better yet,
as shown in our catalog reinforcing punches of bold colors. Beyond all that—fork, knife, spoon. Enough said.
splash bedding
the pattern and colors reflect a 70s aesthetic which I gravitate towards— specifically the references of nature found in the earth-tones and the stylized leaves which are quite mod.
Well done Noël!
arm band vases
when I first saw these I was attracted to the size, the shape, the pattern—the brass material—but then I got a better, close-up look at the copper wire detailing and I fell in lust. They’re absolutely and timelessly beautiful.

spring favorites: ryan

sterling side table
I love how this table adds an unexpected shine to any room. It looks great paired with sofas or
next to a bed.
handwoven recycled sari silk grey rugs
because I love flatweave rugs—
they add such a great layer to a living room or dining room—I love the details of the shine of the silk in these rugs, when you see them in person they really look special.
taurus coat hook
I love the attitude of this coat hook and how it looks mixed in a sophisticated entryway.

Thanks to ryan, general merchandise manager, for this submission.

spring favorites: andrea

oval dinnerware
these color combinations are surprising and crisp, very fresh.
The matte finish elevates the sophisticated, organic shapes—
and, the bowl doubles as a small serving bowl.
roxas pendant
white—for me everything could be
in white and I’d think it was stunning! The clean weave pattern of this pendant—and the scale!—all add to its casual yet refined beauty.
pipeline tablecloth
linen is one of the most beautiful fabrics—neatly pressed or wrinkly and casual. The bold stripe in a crazy bold color—combined with natural linen—it’s the perfect compliment to white dinnerware and colorful dinnerware is simply enhanced.

Thanks to andrea, product manager, for this submission.

introducing: wallpaper

It’s been many months in the making and many samples in the process—but all of us at CB2 are thrilled to debut our first collection of wallpaper February 1st.

What began by asking ourselves “how can we enhance a customer’s home beyond furniture, accessories and textiles?” —came in the answer of a wallpaper collection including both permanent and removable papers, featuring designs with a thoroughly modern aesthetic.

By collaborating with two of our favorite artists—Noël Ashby and Ben Holiday —we’re looking forward to sharing the potential decorating possibilities with both home owners and renters—and getting to work on the next collection!

Whether graphic or photographic, here are snippets of their inspiration:

Noël Ashby:
All of my work starts as a sketch of something I’ve seen, words that create strong visuals, or a snippet of something—fabric, paper, etc., whose shape takes on personality to me.

From there I collage, paint, Photoshop, bump shapes up against lines, cut things apart—anything to get to the final pattern that captures that which first caught my interest. It becomes a story, a tale to tell.

Forest for the trees—I love this expression. Simply put, individual trees are lost in creating the overall texture of a forest.

For the crumpled trees pattern, I used my initial sketches—and a photocopier—to create a look that, in vast repetition, creates a forest of crumpled tress.



Ben Holiday:
My inspiration was the delicately designed facade—with vivid reflections, soft shadows—and linear fire escapes as a calm against the bustle of New York City.

I’m drawn to Mies van der Rohe’s clean lines and pioneering minimalism; Tom Ford’s eye for mixing, texturing and layering; Brancusi’s ultra stylized style; and Van Gogh’s ability to paint colors in any lighting.

Overall, I love clean lines, intriguing colors, cool patterns, and engaging compositions—to create this image, I used a digital slr camera plus image manipulation in Photoshop.
