Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s New Furniture Collection Is Filled with Small-Space Gems
Last October, designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent launched their exclusive furniture line with Living Spaces that combines high-design modern pieces with functionality. Almost one year later, the dynamic duo unleashed their Fall 2019 collection that is as cozy and aesthetically pleasing as ever.
The furniture line consists of three collections: Galerie, Gramercy, and Pavilion. Each one has a unique design element to them, from Galerie that has a livable, contemporary fee to Pavilion that embodies French art deco influences and Gramercy that is modeled after 1940s French design. But what do all of them have in common? Nate and Jeremiah’s love of travel.

“Our collection at Living Spaces is inspired by our travels and the things we collect and live within our own home,” said the two designers in a press release. “The pieces are designed to be mixed and matched, and layered in with what people already live with, and love. Every detail mattered.
We got to check out the collection first-hand, during which we asked what their favorite piece for small spaces is. “I like all of our pieces for small spaces because the truth is Nate and I do not believe that because you have a small space you need itty bitty furniture,” Jeremiah told Apartment Therapy. “The truth is, buy full-scale furniture, full-sized furniture, and create a space that feels like you.” Nate did call out a favorite of his that he gravitates toward, though, which is the Anders Accent Chair (more on that below).
We also asked how another important element of their lives impacted the fall collection: their two children, Poppy and Oskar. “One of the things that we can’t help but factor in when we’re designing anything, especially our collection for Living Spaces, is that our children are both under five years old,” Nate told Apartment Therapy. “So we payed attention to fabrics that wear really well. There’s performance fabric options that come on almost any frame. The little ottoman is easy to use as a coffee table but when little heads fall on top of them they don’t get hurt.”
But enough of us describing the collection, it’s time to see it for yourself. See below for a glimpse of our favorite pieces from the collection that can also comfortably fit in tiny spaces. Feel free to check out the entire collection here, too.
Anders Accent Chair
Like Nate mentioned, this is his favorite piece of furniture when thinking about small spaces. He said that not only is the price point there, but the Anders chair can be used to make a small settee.

This upholstered daybed has a fun influence behind it: Nate and Jeremiah based the ultra-contemporary piece after the works of Zaha Hadid and Santiago Calatrava, which are influenced by sculpture and movement. The Gwen Daybed comes in multiple colors and fabrics.

Norah Straw Accent Storage
Like above, this ottoman strikes a balance of design and function. Open the storage lid and put any belongings that are unnecessarily lying around out of sight.

Armless Taupe Leather Chair, $795
This neutral chair goes with practically any color palette. With its small shape, the Armless Taupe Leather Chair can easily fit into a tight space, and it’s designed with a slight arch to enhance comfort.
