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.
