"The Most Epic New Furniture Collection We Spotted at ICFF

If you didn’t know that New York designer Anna Karlin had a background in set design, you might have guessed from this latest batch of photographs, showcasing the collection she just launched at ICFF in an appropriately brooding setting. Full of luxurious, sculptural pieces of lighting and furniture, the latest collection showcases Karlin’s interest in constantly tinkering with different mediums, as the pieces move from blown glass and carved marble works to larger endeavors like cast bronze, wooden and metal sculptures that hang suspended off a wall-mounted peg rack. In one of our favorite pieces, a sphere of Portuguese pink marble balances on a cube of brass-plated steel, smushed into a dimple of hand-blown glass; in another, a perfectly curving brass-plated steel chaise is lined with soft, cushioned bolsters — a form that in another life might be a pool chair, but here is the epitome of chic."
