As we prepared the new r+h collection for 2017, we were influenced by a recurring theme of contrasts: feminine merging with masculine, hard lines paired with soft materials, and monochromatic palettes varied with unique textures. It’s been rewarding to see those inspirational themes come to life in the new product and we’re thrilled to share this sneak peek with you.
One of the most unique pieces in the new collection is the Drafter’s Tablet. Classically styled, it features gold-tone hardware with a refillable micro-perforated graph paper pad. The tablet has become an instant favorite in the r+h offices and is a stunner on our desktops.
Look for vivid, trend-forward new colors and patterns for the mini binders and single subject notebooks as well as lovely, softer new colorways for the jotters.
The desk accessories category is getting a few luxurious additions including a large acrylic and gold-tone segmented tray. While it’s stunning on the desktop, we’re finding it’s also quite chic on the vanity for cosmetics and perfumes, the coffee table for remotes, candles, and accessories, or the bedroom on the dresser top or nightstand.
Another r+h office favorite is the new leather mousepad with a clever pen rest, perfect for helping us keep track of our favorite gold metal pens. (Seriously, we love this pen and can’t stand to misplace it!)
Lastly, you’ll see a softer, more feminine direction in the 2017 lineup with shades of blush, gray, pink and gold. These pieces deliver the perfect counterpart to some of the more masculine and industrial elements in the collection and round out the hard-soft balance.
Stay tuned here and on our social channels, as the 2017 collection will be launching soon. In the meantime, check out this post for more insight on the design inspiration and development of the new collection.
