Rounding out (along with Holly and Jeanine & Bryan) our Room for Color judges panel are the designers and visionaries behind the Unison brand. Unison is all about colorful, high quality bedding, accessories and more, made in the USA and through partnerships with other creative folks. They have a new store in Chicago and a vibrant online shop. They shared their current favorite colorful rooms with us, too...

All about Unison:

Unison began in 2006 when husband and wife team Robert Segal and Alicia Rosauer returned to the States after four years designing in Finland at Marimekko. The two worked to establish a product line that would bring modern design into practical daily life with a mix of organic and graphic inspired motifs with their bedding, throw pillows and table linens.

The line expanded in 2011 with a full selection of baby and kids bedding and decor as their own family grew. Robert and Alicia also share a strong passion for collecting modern glassware and ceramics which has translated into Unison showcasing other designers on their site and in their Chicago store, rounding out a full collection of modern home furnishings.

My favorite colorful room (Alicia):

The hotel by Azzedine Alaia. The first time I saw it I think was in The World of Interiors magazine (no longer around). The yellow kitchen cabinets were just perfect, combined with the simplicity of stainless steel and concrete floors. He used some of my ultimate favorite mid-century pieces by Prouve and George Nelson, with the exact right color combinations. One day we would love to stay here. Alaia is one of my absolute favorite designers, but his way with interiors blows me away too.

My favorite colorful room (Robert):
Right now it has to be the main floor at Dover Street Market, NYC adjacent with Rose Bakery. The impact of the color block column juxtaposed with the industrial monotones delivers on the Comme brand. It carries you through the atrium and creates a bold and warm, tactile structural element.

Thank you, Robert & Alicia!
