One of the coolest NYC design stores, The Future Perfect, launched a new private label furniture collection at ICFF with seating and lighting design by Lindsey Adelman, Charles de Lisle, Jason Miller and Russell Pinch.

The collection begins with three sofas, a chair and a chandelier that are more transitional than cutting edge modern, with a focus on traditional craftsmanship and methodology. Much of the inspiration came from 19th century upholstering methods and early 20th century lamp making.

The work consists of a blend of soft, natural materials like sustainably-harvested hardwoods, horsehair, coconut fiber and solid brass. A nice balance of hard lines and soft curves, this is a new modern that looks back to the past: Founder David Alhadeff says, “The Future Perfect is about modern. I believe what’s very modern right now is honoring tradition… I looked backwards to make work that was uniquely forward thinking.”
