5 Our Favorites from Interior Designer Kelly Behun's Bold Barneys New York Capsule Collection
Interior designer Kelly Behun has spent years creating showstopping rooms for A-list clients, but lucky for us, her style is now within our reach. Kelly just launched a standalone pop up shop and home accessories collection, "A Kook Milieu," at Barneys New York. Her 40-plus pieces include a full range of graphic tabletop items, textiles, and furniture. Kelly saw the many mediums as an exciting challenge. "Without a doubt the most fun thing was getting to work with such a wide range of materials, from cashmere and special laser aged suedes to lacquered fabrics, wood marquetry and ceramics," she says.
We love the bold patterns, unexpected shapes, and pops of blues and pinks. Check out what Kelly had to say about some of our favorite pieces from her oh-so-covetable "kook meets chic" collection below.
Striped Geometric-Pattern Linen Pillow
"This Op-Art pattern is a classic, printed on a neutral linen and like everything in the collection, works well with just about any interior—my message with this collection is not to be afraid to mix patterns and colors."
Tree-Pattern Wool-Cotton Throw
"This pattern on this jacquard throw is based on a collage we made in the office, the colors and hand are so soft and an added bonus: It's reversible!"
Ink-Blot-Print Lazy Suzi
"My goal is to bring back the Lazy Susan in a way that is chic and elevated. It is such a fun and functional piece—who doesn't love a platter that spins? I have called mine 'Lazy Suzi' because I want to make clear, this is not your grandmother's Lazy Susan."
L-34 Coaster Set
"Coasters are a great and inexpensive way to introduce color and pattern into your world."
"I'm a big fan of serving trays—they can be used to serve food or drinks, but also in a bathroom or bedroom to hold a candle, vase or small bowl of jewelry."
