Each month throughout 2019, interiors+sources has rounded up the latest interior products, from modern office furniture and new wallcoverings, to fresh textiles, flooring and all the details in between that go into making a space.
Every product, hand-chosen by our editors and displayed both online and in the magazine’s Sources section, aims to provide designers with the most current offerings on the commercial market to help them create the best interior possible.

Congratulations to our 2019 Readers’ Choice Award recipients:
The Urban Suite collection of architectural hardware by Ashley Norton combines minimalist design and ergonomic function. From interior and exterior handle sets to cabinet knobs and pulls, the new collection lets designers make a consistent design statement throughout a space. Each piece is available in five slightly distressed patinas: dark bronze, white bronze, light bronze, white medium bronze and matte black.
Accommodating the growing desire in the contract market for high-performance environments with a luxurious, residential aesthetic, Gather creates inviting, sophisticated spaces with an interpretation of traditional pattern motifs. The collection styles are grounded in the familiar but use color, pattern and texture to enhance the promise of the new, combining aesthetics and practicality. Initially designed to meet the need for large-scale patterns in senior living public spaces, the collection provides solutions at an affordable price point.
Enchanted Forest Objects is a new collection of conceptual, hand-blown glass tree formations that are meant to be mixed and matched at will. Combine various formations — Maple, Oak, Small Willow, Cypress, Spruce and Willow (shown from left to right) — and colors to create a unique, magical grove for commercial settings such as an office or lobby. The glass formation, color and texture along with the metal finishing are specified upon ordering.
Inspired by the iconic hexagon, iD Mixonomi, a modular vinyl tile flooring collection, includes seven graphic shapes and three mini-forms that combine to create classic patterns and bold layouts. The collection’s diverse palette is inspired by global travel, offering a cultural array including tender pastels, deep jewel tones, bold primaries and cozy neutrals.
Two-Thirds, a collection of seating and surfaces designed by Joey Ruiter, boasts simple shapes that can be combined to create adaptive, dynamic spaces. Without a predetermined front, back or side, the design encourages users to sit where they want. The interesting upholstery detail exhibits a two-thirds design that adds color contrast carried across poufs and benches. The poufs, benches and tables can be used alone or combined.
Panolam’s new Healthcare Collection is a mix of traditional, transitional and contemporary designs. Available in both Pionite and Nevamar lines, it features calming solids, abstracts, woodgrains and digital styles. The collection creates a harmonious palette of surfacing options to allow design flexibility for healthcare and wellness environments.
Taking design inspiration from the world of fashion, the Ombré faucet finish from Kohler integrates graduated metallic hues to create an unusual enhancement. It uses Kohler’s proprietary physical vapor deposition process that bonds the finish and faucet together to create a scratch- and tarnish-resistant surface. Suitable for both kitchen and bath applications, it’s available in two fabrications: vibrant rose gold to vibrant polished nickel, and vibrant titanium to vibrant rose gold.
The Abstract Sconce is equal parts lighting and art. Indirect LED illumination is reflected on a wall or ceiling from a prism-shaped reflector that hovers over the surface on thin rods extended in tension from each of the three triangular corners. Reflectors are available in three sizes and are designed to stand alone or be arranged into a unique, abstract surface sculpture of illumination.
Featuring updated interpretations of classic designs and motifs, the Sovereign Collection draws on the rich and intricate elements of classic architecture and heraldic design while offering bold and novel fabrics for all kinds of interiors. Each of the collection’s 17 patterns highlights key details and emboldens them in a subtle, contemporary manner.
Radii is a new storage collection from Allsteel Inc. and IDA Design that addresses the need to stow rather than store with a compact, space-efficient design that allows workers’ personal storage to travel with them in today’s agile work environments. This versatile system of metal storage pedestals, undermounts and work tools can be used with any desk. Its customizable design is key as the workplace shifts toward multi-functional units where the need to store paper dwindles and workers look to keep personal items in proximity.
DecoMetal Laminate from Formica combines real metal surfaces with the flexibility and practicality of laminate, addressing the latest interior trends with textured, sculpted and brushed effects in contemporary color stylings.

High Line consists of eight textiles and 53 colors, which can be used to create durable spaces, from seating for a modern office setting to lounge furniture in an educational project.
HardStop Decorative Protection Panels by Formica Group offer a solution for high-performance wall panels by blending ease of installation and impact resistance with a range of design selections that coordinate with other Formica Laminate products.
