A Look At This Atlanta Designer’s New Pieces

ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN | BY | April 29, 2019

Launch: Skylar Morgan

Atlanta furniture designer Skylar Morgan is a hometown hero known for earthy and moody, warm-modern pieces that channel Italian minimalism. Off to ICFF in New York on May 19, he’ll unveil numerous tweaks to his most popular pieces–like the Twirl side table now in blackened brushed brass, the crowd-favorite Arciform credenza updated in oiled walnut with parchment, and the Arc chair (above) augmented with arms and a textural Maharam wool seat. Also on tap are five new intros, from the intentionally diminutive Cache nightstand to an Escher-esque stepped side table offered in hollow cedar or solid reclaimed white oak. But the piece de resistance is perhaps Morgan’s Hillock console (below)–a spinoff of his larger armoire by the same name–available in blackened ash with soapstone or white oak with travertine. “You rarely see this material on top of a piece of furniture,” says Morgan. “Usually it’s on walls or flooring. I knew I wanted something porous, like limestone. It has seashells and creatures fossilized along the top.”
