The best new products to market
Words by Emily Martin
1. Ice Cream Stripes
by Jay Jennings for Bobbi Beck
This delicious collection of wallpaper has been inspired by the nostalgia of being by the sea, carefree days, ice cream parlours and candy stripes. Each design is named after an ice cream; Froyo, Neapolitan, Sorbet, Sundae and Granita with the colourful stripes available in different pastel shades.
2. Origin 55
by IVC Commercial
Featuring a loose lay installation, this LVT range features plank and tile formats which lets you mix and match seamlessly with carpet tiles. The tiles are cut from an extra-large pattern to avoid obvious repeats and to enhance a natural look. Designed and made in Belgium the flooring can be completely recycled.
3. Acoustic Ceiling Collection
Presented as part of ‘BAUX Acoustic Lounge’ during CDW, BAUX’s new acoustic panels consists of three panels: Acoustic Ceiling Panel Plain, Widestripe and Pinstripe. BAUX milled patterns run across the panels and can transform environments into design-led and curated interior settings.
4. Tessera Struktur 2 Linear
by Forbo Flooring Systems
Following the success of its first microtuft collection, Forbo has announced an extension to the range. Tessera Struktur 2 Linear is Forbo’s new collection of subtly textured, tonally striped carpet tiles, which have a hard-wearing flat woven appearance.
5. USM Haller True Pink collection

USM introduced the True Pink collection at the Milan furniture fair to ask audiences what comfort means to them and question the importance of colour in design. The soft pinkish hue has been designed around respite and relaxation; a counterbalance to the busy atmosphere of the Salone del Mobile.
A ‘park bench for the office’, this collection is designed around togetherness and interaction. The collection features a bench – single or double at varying heights – table and lounge chair. The table is available in three heights, so to enable eye to eye contact with someone standing.
by Space Copenhagen for Stellar Works
Comprising five different modular components, the sofa can easily be personalised. Its removable covers can be dry cleaned or replaced. Atelier’s deep armrest acts as a side table and the cushions can be moved for sitting or lounging.
8. Marmo Collection
Inspired by the natural beauty of the Aurora Borealis, the Aurora colour palette from the HIMACS Marmo Collection evokes marble-like aesthetics with subtle and strong shades alongside detailed veining. The tones feature semi-translucent effects that allow designers to experiment with light.
Designed by Milliken’s in-house designer, Manisha Selhi, the Lightbox collection is inspired by the nature of light. Like all Milliken carpet, luxury vinyl tiles and entrance flooring tiles, Lightbox is carbon neutral and is manufactured using Econyl regenerated nylon, featuring 90 percent recycled content cushion backing.
by Michael Young and Coalesse
The studio has again collaborated with Coalesse on three new products to extend the LessThanFive family. A lounge chair and barstool feature carbon elements, to make them light and easy to move, while a table design is heavy to create an anchor within the environment.
