Amber Lewis knows a thing or two about curating a laid-back California home. But the designer’s second collection for Anthropologie, which launched August 16, isn’t limited to those in the Golden State. Striped ceramic tableware and versatile lighting—25 pieces in all—are designed in Lewis’s signature style, effortless and neutral. “As always, I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone that could be layered into what they already had,” she explains.
Her favorite piece, the Keane slipcover sofa, was so comfortable that Lewis had to bring it home for herself. (Although the Rowena coverlet was a close second, the depth of the Keane’s seat—an enveloping 25 inches—is unmatched for lounging.)
Leather plays a starring role, and not on your typical accents. “I just love the way leather patinas over time,” explains Lewis, so it was important to highlight it in hardworking, function-first pieces throughout the collection (think: drawer pulls and dining-chair backs). This launch also marks Lewis’s first venture into home office furniture. The items showcase sleek lines, not to mention exceptional storage—don’t miss the five-drawer desk and coordinating bookcase—and have us never wanting offices to open up fully again.
Her designs can be seamlessly integrated into a number of decor styles, not just those with white walls—and that’s on purpose. “We created pieces that showcase our affinity for colorful prints, layered textiles, natural hues, and vintage-inspired motifs that spark inspiration and help bring homes to life,” she says.
