Rifle Paper Co. Just Launched a Gorgeous Collection of Pillows and Rugs

Fans of Rifle Paper Co. are already well-acquainted with Anna Bond’s gorgeous illustrations and for good reason. She has a way of creating images that are at once high-style and lighthearted, from her iconic florals to her travel-inspired prints. In short, they just make you smile.

And while the brand is best known for things like greeting cards, stationery, calendars, and wall art, that’s all about to change. As of October 29, Rifle Paper Co.’s collection of rugs and pillows in collaboration with Loloi Rugs is officially here. Unsurprisingly, it’s chock-full of gorgeous pieces, and the whole launch has been a passion project for Bond.

“It’s a very personal collection and I am so proud of it,” she told Apartment Therapy. “I grew up going to my Armenian grandmother’s house and she had beautiful Persian carpets in every room (some even hanging as tapestries) and I have many memories studying the colors and patterns of each one.”

Palette by One Kings Lane Just Changed the Custom Furniture Game

For years, filling your home with customized furniture has felt like an unattainable dream. First, there’s the cost: Designing your own pieces is a surefire way to drive up the price. Second, custom furniture can take an extremely long to arrive, what with the time needed to design, craft, and ship it. So, most of us go the easier route and just pick out pieces we like from brands we trust. And sure, most of the time you’ll have a few colors or finishes to choose between, but that doesn’t feel truly personal.

Enter Palette by One Kings Lane, a new platform that’s here to shake up the personalized furniture industry.

With Palette, you can choose from 15 different upholstered pieces, from headboards to chairs to a small space-friendly settee, and then get to work making it your own. The best part? Everything is under a thousand dollars and will arrive in three weeks, which is almost unheard of in the custom decor world.

The Most Iconic Mid-Century Modern Pieces You Need to Know

Simple silhouettes, minimal hardware, and pared-down color palettes. Let’s face it, most design enthusiasts can spot a modern piece from a mile away. (Psst… we broke down the difference between minimalist, modern, and contemporary, if you’re not up to date!)

In 2018, almost every store has a slew of furniture and accessories that are inspired by mid-century modern classics—and for good reason. The style is contemporary, timeless, and looks good in virtually any space. But the influx of mid-century inspired pieces makes it easy to overlook the trailblazers who started the movement in the first place.

So, we’re taking you back to school—design school, that is—and breaking down the most iconic mid-century modern pieces you need to know.

CB2 Just Launched a Stylish Collection With Gwyneth Paltrow's goop

Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle company, goop, may have a reputation for suggesting and selling items so expensive most of us could only dream about buying them, but its newest collaboration is a departure from the site’s extremely affluent roots. The new goop x CB2 furniture collection just launched, and it’s surprisingly on the affordable side.

And while we’re excited to see GP pivot into the design space, we would have expected her to pair up with a luxury brand like ABC Carpet & Home, not Crate & Barrel’s more affordable sister store. But hey, after seeing the 58-piece collection we’re not complaining. Because my goopness, is it beautiful.

There are, of course, some extravagant offerings, like this $3,299 special edition shearling chair signed by Gwyneth herself (you can also buy it unsigned for $899). But overall, the collection is moderately priced and includes a range of stylish pieces with thoughtful details. Take for instance, the chinoiserie rug, which was inspired by Paltrow’s time in England.

“I lived in England—where chinoiserie wallpaper and tapestries are so prevalent—for such a long time,” Paltrow explained on CB2’s site. “To me, the motif represents a very homey feeling, which I’ve never seen on a rug before. It was really fun to transpose it off the wall and onto the floor.”

That soft, almost romantic theme carries through the rest of the collection as well. You can shop the full line on CB2.com now, but check out our favorite pieces below.

Urban Outfitters is Having a One-Day Sale on Furniture — These are our Favorite Finds

If you still think of Urban Outfitters primarily as a clothing store, it’s time to think again. The hipster-favorite actually sells an impressive array of furniture and decorative pieces—bonus points for stocking a ton of small space-friendly finds—and it’s one of my favorite places to look for on-trend accents for my apartment.

The only downside? Some of the pieces feel just a little pricey. But not today! Urban Outfitters is running a deal of the day where all of their furniture is on sale. That means today only you can take up to 40% off sofas, bed frames, side tables and more. The prices are as marked too, so you won’t have to break out your calculator to figure out how much you’ll end up paying.

There’s a wide variety of pieces on sale, but we picked out five of our favorites to get you started.
