editors, by profession, are not supposed to play favorites. Of that, I am dutifully aware. But I have to admit that the September/October issue of Traditional Home is becoming one of mine. Themed as our New Classics issue, it’s where we announce our next class of New Trad designers—and tell you what we love about their work. It’s a hard task to narrow down this field to 10 each year. In some cases, we’ve kept tabs on designers, watching their work grow and evolve over a few years. Others burst onto the scene to take our breath away. What I love about this process is putting together a group of creatives who have classic design in the soul of their work but put a fresh lens on what traditional looks like…

M Naeve Houston, we have no problem when it comes to style. That’s thanks in part to M Naeve, the eponymous shop of interior designer Margaret Naeve Parker. “I wanted to create a spot where designers could see more than antiques, more than 20th century,” she says. “I want people to see these really current designs, what’s happening right now—and see it in Texas.” She curates a mix of antiques, often discovered on buying trips across Europe, and carefully selected new pieces, such as the “Paris” occasional table, top left, from Apparatus Studio. “It’s all about quality and an aesthetic that defies trends,” she says. (mnaeve.com) John Derian In the back of a cabinet at a Brussels curio shop, John Derian discovered magic—a set of 19th-century playing cards that can only be described…

the british are coming!

It’s as if the Fauvist paintings of Henri Matisse—spiked with a touch of Jean Cocteau’s line drawings—sprang to life on the Sultan’s Copper Tents at Drottningholm Palace. The vibrant, saturated hues and the organic, imperfect shapes emerging in creations from a wave of U.K. designers—visionaries like Bridie Hall and Matilda Goad—are creating a new sort of style. It’s whimsical, colorful, painterly, and playful—and it’s coming to a room near you. We’ve assembled fabrics (gracing born-in-the-USA furniture), furnishings, lighting, and more with distinct British style into vignettes sure to make the queen (or certainly a style-savvy American-bred duchess) squeal with delight. “THE RESURGENCE IN CLASSICAL SUBJECT MATTER, MADE WITH MODERN MATERIALS, GIVES A NOD TO THE MASTERS WHO’VE GONE BEFORE US.”—designer Bridie Hall…

barcelona dreams

a fixture of the modern movement and an icon in furniture design, the Barcelona chair emerged in 1929. The brainchild of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the visionary who gave us that oft-cited maxim “less is more,” his clean-lined creation was designed to furnish the German Pavilion at the Inter national Exhibition in Barcelona, where it would serve as seating worthy of the king and queen of Spain. The acclaimed original design—still produced to Mies’ specifications by Knoll—has inspired a crop of new iterations. Paying homage to the classic, below, most of these fresh interpretations flaunt the familiar biscuit tufting and metal base but bring a current spin with contemporary colors and materials (think luxe velvet and warm brass). Whether new or old, the chair offers undeniable comfort and good looks. “The…
