University Furniture recently Introduced Tranquility, the second home furnishings collaboration between Universal and Miranda Kerr. Inspired by modern Parisian style, this nearly 40-piece collection features chic and elevated, yet simple, furnishing for the living room, dining room, bedroom and office. The Tranquility collection debuts at High Point Furniture Market, October 15-21.

 

“Both the collaboration and the support we’ve received from Miranda have been outstanding,” said Universal Furniture Vice President of Marketing Neil MacKenzie. “The first collection, Love. Joy.Bliss., has been very well received from customers around the world, and we couldn’t be more pleased with what we’ve accomplished together with the evolution of Miranda Kerr Home in Tranquility.”

 

“When designing the Tranquility collection, I had in mind how much time we spend at home these days. Your home should be your sanctuary, a nurturing space of both comfort and inspiration, and I wanted the pieces to reflect that,” said Miranda Kerr. “I’m thrilled with our partnership. Universal has really made my vision come to life by creating furnishings that inspire a certain feeling within the home.”

 

The collection is defined by soft organic curves and waterfall edges, warm sycamore, Mappa and Madrona burl veneers, white lacquer and textured plaster finishes. Hardware in soft gold. Fabrics focus on hushed neutrals of white, taupe and light gray. All upholstery is made domestically and available in special order fabrics.

 

Not only organic in shape, but also in material, Tranquility introduces a new performance fabric from Crypton Home with a warm, organic feel. This exclusive Crypton Performance Cotton bouclé is a first-of-its-kind performance upholstery fabric innovation. It is woven with 50% to 70% recycled cotton fibers repurposed from the apparel industry, and has all of Crypton’s patented spill repelling, and stain-and-odor resisting properties. It is Greenguard Certified and woven in the USA.

 

New designs include:

 

Aerial Cocktail Table

This round cocktail table features the richness of burl with a modern kick of acrylic. Measuring 40”D x 16”H, Aerial’s D-shaped acrylic legs are topped with a circle enrobed in a Mappa burl veneer. Aerial is the perfect place to display modern objets or oversized books.

 

Arc Console

A striking console that’s simple yet statement-making. The drama of the high arch compliments the simplicity and chicness of the Mappa burl veneer for this organically inviting piece. Measuring 60”W x 16”D x 30”H, Arc looks lovely in any hallway, living room or entryway. Pair with the Riviera Bunching Bench for an extra touch of luxe.

 

Enlightenment Side Table

Seeking domestic nirvana? You’re halfway there with the Enlightenment Side Table. Flaunting three tiers of organic curves and a white dimpled plaster finish, Enlightenment stands

20”D x 24”H, and evokes the calm dreaminess of a pillow or cloud. A truly transcendent piece next to any sofa, armchair or bed. 

 

Fleur Hall Chest

Feminine chic is in full bloom with this simple stunner. A simple white lacquer chest in a dimpled plaster finish comes to life with palm-sized ceramic rosettes (an extension of Tranquility’s organic inspiration). Fleur measures 42”W x 18”D x 36”H.    

 

Harmony Console

Harmony flaunts the organic “mushroom cloud concept” of the Tranquility collection to perfection. The console features a textured plaster, double mushroom base with a thick Carrara marble table top. A modern statement piece, it pairs well with the curvaceous Serenity sofa. The Harmony Console stands at 60”W x 16”D x 30”H.

 

Mantra Side Board

Say “om” for the Mantra Side Board. This rounded edge silhouette features Mappa burl veneer on the outer panels and waterfall edges, while doors are reeded, white wood. With a push latch and storage drawers lined for flatware, Mantra is a chic yet simple marriage of form and function. 60”W x 16D” x 30”H.

 

Mode Desk Vanity

Decidedly modern, the versatile Mode Desk Vanity comprises oval and circular elements

Its left side is supported by a circular column (topped with a removable rose-quartz-lined tray) and the right side is supported by a wider circular column which houses four drawers. The desk top has an integrated drawer with enough storage for office supplies, makeup or jewelry.

This sculptural silhouette measures 64”W x 26”D x 30”H.

 

Poise Etagere

Simple elegance for a sitting area, home office or even a bedroom. The Poise Etagere keeps the look Parisian (minimal and modern) with white painted shelves and Mappa burl supports forming a well-balanced, architectural frame. Use this 42”W x 18”D x 83-3/4”H beauty to display collectibles, botanicals and other décor, or position it as a chic space divider.

 

Serenity Sofa

Curvaceous sophistication. Serenity gives an ethereal vibe with a rounded silhouette covered in a tactile, nubby base cloth. Perfect for an intimate conversation à deux or solo mediations, think of Serenity as a warm and enveloping hug.

 

Truffle Round Dining Table

Much like the prized delicacy, the Truffle Round Dining Table marries the organic with the urbane. The A-line base is an extension of Tranquility’s “mushroom cloud” concept and Will set six diners comfortably. Truffle’s dimensions are 60”D x 30”H.
