SHOP, Suite 241

The Shade Store, Suite 1070

New from MDF Italia is the NVL table, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. The NVL table recalls the archaic principle of a trilith, a structure consisting of two vertical elements supporting a third element set horizontally across the top. The distinctive features of Jean Nouvel’s architecture are fully manifested in this table and enhance the stylistic elements that have always distinguished his work: pure geometric shapes, formal lightness, graphic lines, and rigor.

The Shade Store expands its collection with Nate Berkus with a selection of exclusive new Roller Shade materials that evoke a sense of lived-in luxury. The new assortment features unique, carefully curated patterns that feel time-worn yet sophisticated. Inspired by a timeless Mediterranean palette — including chalky grays, warm neutrals and moss greens combined with classic Greek motifs and textural hand-painted elements — the collection offers a modern take on classic designs. Its combination of patterns and tonal colorways are designed to deliver an array of opportunities for layering these shades with The Shade Store’s extensive collection of Drapery styles.
