Good Enough to Eat: Sarah Ellison x Pantone Float Sofa

We can’t stop thinking about how good it must feel to sink into Sydney-based Sarah Ellison’s Float sectional (though we’ll have to wait until the February 2023 release date to find out). Not only are its extra-deep, rippled cushions begging to be sprawled out on, we bet the all-velvet surface is so soft it’ll be a struggle to get up once seated. And it just so happens to be in a custom colorway in collaboration with Pantone—Piccolo—a rich chocolaty brown designed specifically for the launch for a truly sumptuous look and feel. —Morgan Bulman, associate commerce editor

This Is the Remix: Hay x Herman Miller

You don’t mess with a classic—right? Unless that classic is the Herman Miller Eames collection and the one interfering is Hay, one of my favorite Danish brands, well, ever. To celebrate the latter’s 20th anniversary, the two joined forces to make Eames pieces in new colorways, from a powdery pink shell chair to a multicolored striped sofa. Though I mostly want to hang with the new mint green Hang-It-All. —Julie Vadnal, deputy editor

Let Your Hair Down: Studio Paolo Ferrari at Colony

Interior design firm Studio Paolo Ferrari’s whimsical products are finally coming Stateside. Its first solo exhibition, Edition 4, marks a partnership with Colony, and it’s full of statement pieces. We’re talking an armchair-with-a-train-of-luscious-textile-locks kind of statement. But whether you’re leaning more toward a cherry-lacquered coffee table or highlighter-hued curved sofa, the award-winning Ferrari’s fourth furniture collection will be a conversation starter. —Kate McGregor, associate design editor

Writing’s on the…Table: Hem x Kwangho Lee

With every Hem collaboration, I seem to add to my list of favorite creatives. Most recently, the brand put me on to Seoul-based artist Kwangho Lee with a collection that translates his geometric style and appreciation for ancient techniques into furniture made for the masses. While I could easily lose hours on the Hunk lounge chair, it’s the Egyptian-inspired glyph tables I’m eyeing. They can be rotated and styled any way the mood hits—as a side table, a nightstand, or a sculpture—it’s open for interpretation. —Raven McMillan, assistant editor 

Get Your Glow On: Gubi’s Semi Pendant Lamp’s New Colors

From the moment I first saw Gubi’s Semi pendant lamp by Bonderup & Thorup, I knew that I wanted it in my life someday. And while that day is yet to come, the trio of new earthy finishes has me ready to get out my credit card and finally seal the deal. Just in time for fall, toasty hues of roasted pumpkin, fennel seed, and dark cocoa are neutral enough to blend in but bold enough to make you look twice. And because it’s such a modern, streamlined silhouette, a little warmth gives it the perfect balance. —Julia Stevens, style editor

Pantry Perfect: Food52 Launches Pantry

Food52 has an uncanny ability to bottle the essence of any given season into gift-worthy form, and its latest fall launch is no exception: a top-shelf collection of pantry goods that’s as lovely to look at as it is to cook with and consume. The offerings—which took 18 months of sourcing at the hands of Eataly mastermind Sebastian Sardo—span everything from slow-dried pasta and California-grown rice to canned tomatoes hand-harvested in Salerno and Colombian coffee beans roasted in Brooklyn. Now the question remains, do I hoard these inspired ingredients inside my own pantry or gift them to party hosts throughout the holidays? (I’ll likely do a little bit of both.) —Liz Buxton, commerce content director
