Designer Kelly Wearstler is not one to rest on her laurels. The in-demand tastemaker recently unveiled three new collections that speak to the spirit of collaboration. Contour, created with ceramicist Morgan Peck, offers nine styles (from vases to candlesticks) created in Peck’s signature freestyle and nodding to Wearstler’s love for brutalist architecture. Also new is her latest offering for Lee Jofa, Morro, inspired by the silhouettes that defined French and Italian furniture in the ’70s. That means tables, lounge chairs, and sofas that take a monolithic form as if cut from one piece. And, in an artistic move with fellow designer Hagit Pincovici, Third Nature offers a creative take on date palms and desert plants (born out of a desire from Pincovici to reconnect with nature following Covid) in the form of sculptures and objets d’art.
