TRIO Environments and Phillips Collection To Launch Modern, Artisan-Made Product Line

Furniture World News


Award-winning interior design firm TRIO Environments, led by Angela Harris, recently announced the Angela Harris for Phillips Collection, a collection of furniture created in collaboration with High Point, NC-based manufacturer Phillips Collection. The line will debut during the summer Las Vegas Market, July 29—August 2, 2018.

Inspired by her love of travel and art, Angela Harris created the collection with a focus on the natural beauty of wood and metal. Imbued with a sense of quiet and understated luxury, the collection pairs Harris’ penchant for organic modernism with a rich, artisan-made, worldly elegance.

The full collection consists of a wide array of furniture and seating, including club chairs, sofas and dining chairs, dining tables, bar tables, coffee and side tables; creating an eclectic yet sophisticated product offering.

Pure, geometric forms rendered in rich suar wood paired with metal inlays inform much of the collection. The collection is available in two color schemes. The warm features hand-rubbed stains over natural wood with brass accents, which the cooler palette employs grey wood with silver details. The minimalist pieces in the line are impeccably crafted by hand in Indonesia, all under the close supervision of Phillips Collection and Angela Harris.

“I first started working with Phillips Collection for custom pieces for my own interior design projects,” says Angela Harris, Principal and Creative Director of TRIO Environments. “I was always blown away by the quality and beauty of the final pieces so when the opportunity came around to do an official collection, we jumped at the chance.”

The collection also gives a competitive advantage to builders by offering a curated and customized look for model homes and multifamily residences designed by TRIO Environments.

“We strive to be a robust design partner for our builders and developers by bringing together historically compartmentalized components of the typical design project,” says Harris. “This allows us to create more holistic design solutions for our clients that incorporate all aspects of the design process.”

“From our beginnings working in art and artifacts to our present day incarnation as a manufacturer of contemporary design objects, Phillips Collection has always aimed to work with the world’s best designers,” says Jason Phillips, Vice President, Phillips Collection. “This newest collaboration with Angela continues that tradition while offering our clients something entirely new and unexpected.”

Starting at $349, the Angela Harris for Phillips Collection is designed to work for a wide range of interiors projects and designed for those that value rich materials and sustaining quality.
