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.”
