Queen of cool Sophie Ashby pulled out all the stops in her first furniture line with The Invisible Collection. The London-based, South African–born interior designer has built a successful career staging display apartments and designing common areas for London's high-end residential developments (though she's also done a number of private residences, hotels, and restaurants). Her style is fearless, unique, and insanely cool.
Naturally, it's no surprise that her debut furniture collection is equally remarkable. Launched in 2016, The Invisible Collection began life as an online showcase for rare and unique pieces by esteemed French and international interior designers. Each piece of the capsule collections can be customized and made to order. While it's not exactly a budget furniture source, it certainly is unique. If you're looking for a showstopping piece of furniture that will last you a lifetime, this is the collection for you.
This piece makes a strong case for dining benches and is available in 30 shades of Pierre Frey velvet.
Add this to a vanity, living room, or tuck it under a console table—this furry stool is the most versatile piece in the collection.
This stunning console is made of two shades of blue acrylic, creating a mesmerizing optical illusion. Use it in an entryway or behind a floating sofa in the living room.
This terrazzo-esque pedestal table is the ideal size for a breakfast nook or a large entrance. Just add a tall vase filled with cherry blossoms.
Burl wood is back! This stunning console has polished acrylic accents and a convenient shelf, great for displaying books and other objects.
This trio of marble pebble tables is a versatile statement, perfect for larger living rooms. We love the green hues in the veined marbles.
We don't necessarily need a dressing table with polished brass leopard legs, but that doesn't mean we don't want one. It has a certain Beauty and the Beast flair, no?
This stunning dining table is made from matte black steel and a honed marble top. The minimalist lines are timeless, so your table would never go out of style.
