MIAMI – Brazilian furnishings brand Artefacto, which recently broke ground on a new U.S. flagship store here, has announced its new collection of home furnishings for 2020, which include upholstery, bedroom, dining and occasional goods.
Each item in the new collection – which includes a variety of both indoor and outdoor pieces – was conceptualized by Patricia Anastassiadis in partnership with Artefacto CEO Paulo Bacchi.
Combining the bold flair of Brazil with the minimalistic nature of Asian culture, the new goods aim for eye-catching and fresh designs that still embrace the brand’s signature timeless contemporary style. The pieces represent a fusion of juxtaposed styles and textures; from geometric curves and clean lines to mixed materials and exotic woods, all complemented by organic textiles, linen and rattan.
The 2020 collection ranges from sofas and bed frames to side tables, dining tables, chairs and more.
For the first time, select pieces will feature technological enhancements and charging portals. As with all Artefacto products, the new 2020 collection features the finest ethically sourced materials.
I’m Powell Slaughter, senior editor at Furniture/Today. I returned to the publication in January 2015 after nine years of writing about furniture retail strategies and best practices at a monthly magazine focusing on home furnishings retail operations. Prior to that, I spent 10 years with F/T covering wood furniture, the last five of those as case goods editor. Upon my return to F/T, I developed coverage of the logistical and service aspects of the furniture industry as well as following the occasional, home office and home entertainment categories. In April 2018 I took over the upholstery category, with responsibility for coverage of the fabric and leather stationary and motion upholstery, recliners and massage chair categories.
