Drew Barrymore is in her neutrals era. Proof: When we meet, she’s wearing a cream-colored suit and lounging on an ivory bouclé swivel chair—one so wide and cozy that someone on set described it as seating for “one and a half.” Barrymore is surrounded by furniture made from light wood, and a soothing sage blanket rests by her side. Welcome to her new Beautiful by Drew furniture collection. 

“I need neutrals more than ever,” she says. “I’m never not going to be colorful and layered, but I need things quieter in my spaces.” Which explains why the Drew chair, out today, is the ideal introduction to her full collection, which will slowly roll out over the next few months. 

Just like so many of the pieces in the line—from knit throws to ultra-soft sofas—the Drew chair, that swivel-y bouclé one she’s resting on, feels like a big hug. Yes, you could call that a tired metaphor, but also during the shoot for this story, Barrymore actually fit herself inside one of the storage coffee tables. So quite literally, her furniture envelops you like welcoming arms.

Barrymore says that the toned-down palette will appeal to minimalists and maximalists alike. For the former group, the pieces allow for a quiet moment that’s modern, crisp, and clean. For the more-is-more crowd, she says the calm shades in her collection are a dream: “You’re not fighting with pattern, so it allows for even more color and pattern,” she says, suggesting everything from red and navy to greens and terracotta. 

Still, one of her favorite aspects of the line is affordability. The Drew chair comes in at $298, and the rest of the products are just as easy on your checking account. “I wanted to make a lovely, timeless, but also on-trend bouclé chair that elevates your space, but at a very different price,” she says. “That’s just how it should be.”

And just because her collection dips into neutral territory, she swears she’s still a design obsessive who’s in love with color, texture, and patterns:  “I can’t ever keep it too minimalist and serious!”
