THE MODERN ESSENTIALS CAPSULE COLLECTION

BY GREG NATALE

THE MODERN ESSENTIALS
CAPSULE COLLECTION

Created exclusively for Covet Collection by award-winning Australian designer Greg Natale, this capsule range of furniture presents the essential elements for the modern interior. Melding strong modernist sensibilities with a maximalist approach to layering, the designer’s curated mix of pattern, colour and materials is beautifully encapsulated by the Modern Essentials collection’s carved timber details, lashings of marble and expressive sculptural lines. Each piece is defined by sweeping curves and organic, enveloping forms in dreamy, ethereal neutrals that conjure a mood of soft elegance. The collection draws inspiration from the opulent interiors of the 1970s and 80s, referencing the era’s nostalgia for old Hollywood style and its filtering of the early-modern design lexicon through an exuberant, sensual lens. The pieces are titled in homage to the film and fashion stars who personified this new age of elegance, their svelte and sophisticated presence recalling the original screen icons who floated in languid silk through luminous, gossamer-cloud sets. Greg has deftly channelled these influences from art, fashion and film with a series of graceful appointments that feel like a warm embrace. Modern Essentials reflects the vivid sense of storytelling and nuanced approach to line and colour that delivers dynamism, verve and an air of luxe liveability to the designer’s acclaimed interiors. Greg’s work has featured in international publications such as Architectural Digest, Vogue Living, Wallpaper, Belle, Time, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle Décor. He has received numerous awards, including Australian House & Garden Room of the Year 2021 and the Belle Interior Designer of the Year twice, and was named one of The World’s Most Influential Designers by AD Mexico and a Design Visionary by Harper’s Bazaar Interiors Middle East. Greg’s work was most recently showcased in his third hardcover book, The Layered Interior, published New York art book imprint Rizzoli.
