Sara Gil­bane teams up with The New Tra­di­tion­al­ists to cre­ate a spir­ited fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion.

For the in­au­gu­ral col­lab­o­ra­tion of The New Tra­di­tion­al­ists’ pri­vate la­bel se­ries, the com­pany asked Sara Gil­bane to cre­ate a line of seven orig­i­nal fur­nish­ings. Gil­bane, an in­te­rior de­sign star since open­ing her own firm in 2008, jumped at the chance to ap­ply her vi­va­cious style to some clas­sic sil­hou­ettes. In­spired by her fa­vorite French an­tiques (as well as her own cus­tom creations), she crafted a line of posh, prac­ti­cal pieces—a curvy cock­tail ta­ble, a sin­u­ously tufted loveseat, a sleek daybed that dou­bles as a sofa—that aren’t com­monly found in the mass mar­ket. “I wanted to of­fer a play­ful twist on time­less shapes,” says Gil­bane. “Th­ese are items I’ll re­turn to again and again be­cause of their func­tion­al­ity and scale.”
