Everything Team Domino Wants to Buy This Fall
From the best collections we’ve seen (so far).
Published Sep 13, 2019 6:00 AM
One of the most fun parts of working at Domino is that we essentially window-shop for a living. Every season, we get a sneak peek at what our favorite brands are launching next, from innovative materials (resin tables, anyone?) to groovy new patterns. You can imagine a lot of bookmarking goes on. With fall collections dropping left and right, we figured we’d share our intel and offer up our wish lists for the season. After all, the loss of summer is less of a bummer when you have a fun little pick-me-up to get you excited about autumn.
Digital Editorial Assistant Lydia Geisel’s Pick: MoMA Design Store’s Mondri Vase
I’m gravitating toward primary hues and neon this season, and MoMA’s lineup is super-bright and playful. I’m really excited about the glass furniture by Patricia Urquiola (it’s made with five layers of glass, each with a different colored film) and the new and improved Mondri vase.
Style Assistant Julia Stevens’s Pick: Beni Rugs’s Blue and Green Rug
I’m a sucker for Yves Klein Blue, so you can imagine how excited I was to see these rugs pop up in my in-box. The collection of 13 pieces, woven with bold architectural and botanical prints, was inspired by the iconic Le Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. It’s out November 1, just in time to cozy up and add some extra color to your space.
Senior Social Media Editor Alyssa Clough’s Pick: Hay’s Flowerpot
This season, I keep going back to Hay’s newest launch. Specifically, its planters. All my plants outgrew their homes this summer, so I’m in need of a handful of new pots and want an upgrade from the usual terracotta—but nothing too pricey. The product designers at Hay must have read my mind, because the fall decor line has two perfectly on-trend options: the Flowerpot, a polystone design that looks like cement and comes in six different colors, and the Botanical Family Pot, a streamlined, ceramic style.
Digital Editor Rebecca Deczynski’s Pick: Kip & Co.’s Marble Magic Linen Sheets
In 2018, I swore off the all-white bedspread I’d favored for the previous five years and embraced my more maximalist side. My bed is the focal point of my room, so I might as well make it stand out—and what better way to do that than with coral reef–printed sheets or a deep blue velvet duvet? I’m also a recent linen bedding convert, and luckily this Aussie brand has plenty of patterned and jewel-toned options. The marbled version, in particular, is something out of my sweetest dreams.
Senior Home Editor Gabrielle Savoie’s Pick: Ferm Living’s Distinct Coffee Table
I just moved into a bigger apartment with my boyfriend, so I’ve been furniture shopping a ton these days. One of the collections I can’t get enough of is Ferm Living’s new line. Fluid shapes and mesmerizing materials make beautiful statement pieces that are definitely investment-worthy but not over-the-top expensive. I’m eyeing the multilevel travertine coffee table, the organically shaped seamless mirror, and the navy-glazed, hand-sculpted lamp.
Editorial Assistant Esmé Stern’s Pick: Hawkins New York’s Simple Waffle Towels
I’ve been known to resist the beginning of September, hoping, instead, to live in the naive mind-set of an endless summer. This year, though, Hawkins’s fall and winter offerings are actually making me excited for cooler weather to take center stage. The autumn-inspired color palettes (burnt oranges, soft pinks, forest greens) and mixed materials (rattan, marble, stoneware) instantly transport me to my ideal crisp night: Preparing a warm meal in the Shaker serveware bowls, wrapping myself in a waffle towel, and reading by the light of the Mima lamp.
Deputy Editor Lindsey Mather’s Pick: Muuto’s Ceramic Dots
Muuto’s giant wood dot hooks stole my heart way back in 2013, when I saw them in Faye Toogood’s kitchen, taking the place of standard cabinet pulls. (How genius is that?) This fall, the brand has reimagined them in ceramic form—a reactive glaze makes each one of a kind—so they’ve moved up even higher on my wish list. Other highlights from the collection: a cloud-like, Noguchi-esque pendant lamp (group a few for maximum drama) and a ribbed terracotta floor vase, a very necessary purchase since our new office is right in the middle of the flower district.
Brand Partnerships Visuals Director Meghan McNeer’s Pick: Soho Home’s Monroe Cushion
This season has me dreaming of a good book in front of a warm fire with a glass of orange wine (preferably in the English countryside). Soho House’s Babbington collection is elevated, English-cottage chic with a color palette based in dusty rusts, rose blushes, and sage greens that will help me softly transition from summer neons to moody winter blues. At the moment, I’m especially wild about orange, so these pillows are my fall essential.
Associate Digital Editor Elly Leavitt’s Pick: Minna’s Striped Duvet Cover
I didn’t think I needed to switch up my bedding…until I was stalking Minna’s New Arrivals section and came across the subtly patterned duvet covers I never knew I needed. As a general rule, I love the brand’s muted earthy tones, but the latest textile launch is especially ideal for mixing and matching. My favorite is the striped sage option; I have terracotta-colored accents in my bedroom that would pair perfectly with the hue.
