Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent Embrace Simplicity in New Collection for The Entire Home

Whenever Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent come out with a new collection for Living Spaces, you can expect them to deliver a fresh approach and unique outlook on design. As world travelers and fathers, the duo have plenty of experiences to pull inspiration from, and this season they looked to the coasts of California, Montauk and Portugal to capture the natural beauty and elegant simplicity of seaside living.

Perhaps their most laidback and contemporary collection yet, Nate and Jeremiah focused on neutral tones, natural textures and clean lines. In fact, you’ll notice the absence of hardware on their case pieces, further reinforcing the collection’s streamlined point of view. Read on for more highlights from this season’s pieces.

Highlight 1: Neutral Tones

Nate and Jeremiah have never met a neutral they didn’t love, and their appreciation reaches full fruition in this collection. From the brushed light oak finish on the hexagonal pedestal end tables, to the linen tones of the sectional’s upholstery, you are awash in a sea of serenity with nary a color in sight. True to form, the designers stick to a tight, consistent palette that has a simple yet elegant effect.

Highlight 2: Clean Lines

The Voyage canopy bed by Nate and Jeremiah provides a perfect example of how the designers have used clean lines to create a sense of striking simplicity. A departure from their typical penchant for traditional silhouettes and historical references, Nate and Jeremiah went for a sleeker look that feels fresh and modern. The tall, straight posts emphasize this commitment to all things crisp and neat and linear.

Highlight 3: Natural Materials

Nate and Jeremiah channel the easy, breezy vibes of coastal living with their collection thanks to the use of natural materials like solid wood and stone. Their organic essence breathes life into the designs, which help bring the outside in. Because of the clean, streamlined silhouettes, these materials have an even greater chance to shine and showcase their one-of-a-kind characteristics.

Highlight 4: Function

More than anyone, Nate and Jeremiah believe in designing furniture that’s not only beautiful but useful. They’ve created pieces with features that add function to every room in your home, including the office. With a hardworking desk and bookcase that can be bunched to provide more storage, you can put together an environment that’s conducive to getting things done.


Highlight 5: Character

Nate and Jeremiah’s new collection serves as the ultimate proof that designs don’t have to be complicated to be sophisticated. There’s beauty in simplicity, and these pieces are rich in character thanks to compelling silhouettes that celebrate the collection’s authentic materials, natural textures and neutral tones in all their glory.

Celebrated design duo, Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent recently launched an exclusive upholstery collection for Living Spaces. Featuring timeless pieces inspired by their travels, as well as items they live with at home, this line of luxurious yet affordable designs introduces 2 chic color trends we think you’ll love for this season and beyond. Jewel tones and classic neutrals, these palettes look just as stylish on their own as they do paired together, and they’ll shine in your space.

Jewel Tone | Gold

Vibrant yet sophisticated, jewel tones have the unique ability to add color and sophistication to a room. Whereas yellow would look bright, peppy and youthful, gold has more gravitas. It’s a bold choice, but it feels grand and glamorous. Nate and Jeremiah have it available as a Special Order fabric on their Ames sofa, which is elegant and easy to live with. It’s the perfect addition to a formal living room.

Jewel Tone | Emerald

Green is one of this year’s hottest colors, and Emerald is a fancy, five-star version of the popular hue. Just like the precious gemstone its named for, this shade is rich, dramatic and elegant. Pairing it with black and white or metallics will yield extraordinarily luxe results. Nate and Jeremiah’s Marta sofa bears this dazzling color when covered in a Special Order fabric, and represents their interpretation of mid-century Italian design.

Neutrals | Beige 

Fans of Nate and Jeremiah know that these design darlings have a thing for neutral colors. And who can blame them? Neutrals are a key ingredient in effortlessly chic spaces, and you can truly never go wrong with this palette - especially if you’re someone who shys away from color. Nate and Jeremiah’s Matteo sofa and chair are just right in tame beige, which allows other details to take center stage, from button tufting to sleek metal legs. 

Neutrals | Grey

Grey is the perhaps the most usable neutral. Not too dark, not too light, it is perfectly balanced and manages to somehow look fresh and timeless in any setting. Nate and Jeremiah’s Whitley sectional is inspired by a vintage piece they found on their travels and live with in their own home. The tailored grey upholstery highlights its strong rectangular lines and deep, low-profile seating.

How Nate and Jeremiah Embrace Hygge in their New Collection

A word used to describe the warm and cozy Danish way of life, hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”) was introduced to us a few years ago when it swept the nation as a major lifestyle trend. Although the full-blown hygge frenzy has dissipated, the desire to create more mindful, more beautiful spaces remains, and it’s embraced in the new upholstery collection that Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent have created. The incomparable interior designers weave the fundamentals of hygge in their pieces, and in the way they style them. Here’s how.

1 | Neutral Tones. The idea of hygge is to instill a sense of serenity and peacefulness in your space. Neutral tones are an easy and lovely way to do that, and they just happen to be a favorite of Nate and Jeremiah. From creams, to taupes, to wood tones, this palette is inherently calming and key to a hygge home.

2 | Simple Things. It’s amazing how placing a chair in a corner can make it instantly inviting, right? With this small styling choice, Nate and Jeremiah have created a moment where you can imagine yourself curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a book. That moment is what hygge is all about. Taking pleasure in the simple things and turning them into fond memories.

3 | Cozy Vibes. Super soft, extra touchable textures are essential in a hygge-inspired room, and Nate and Jeremiah’s pieces have got that concept covered. From the luxurious velvety upholstery on their Ames sofa, to the thick shearling-style fabric on their Chloe cocktail ottoman, the layers are all ultra-comfortable and ultra-irresistible.

4 | Natural Elements. Nate and Jeremiah’s collection reflects their love of bringing the outside into their spaces - a main ingredient in hygge interiors. The natural warmth and beauty that materials like wood add to a room are the heart and soul of hygge.

You’ll Obsess Over These 3 Design Trends from Nate + Jeremiah's Collection

With the launch of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s upholstery collection for Living Spaces comes the introduction of new color and design trends that will make your season. These interior design stars have their finger on the pulse of all things fresh and timeless, and their pieces feature striking elements and unique details that style dreams are made of. Below are 3 trends taken straight from their collection, and we think you’ll go crazy for them - we sure have!

Trend 1 | Front + Center Texture Nate and Jeremiah’s upholstered designs don’t just look beautiful, they feel irresistible. From luxe velvets, to nubby linens to the soft and cozy shearling-inspired upholstery that’s pictured here on their Liv chair, Nate and Jeremiah’s designs are meant to be seen and touched. This fabric is actually 100% polyester that mimics the texture of wool or fleece from a shearling sheep. You’ll also see this fabric on their boho-chic Chloe cocktail ottoman and practical yet beautiful Norah storage ottoman.

Trend 2 | A Leg Up on Style Like any true designer, Nate and Jeremiah are all about the details. The attention they pay to the smallest of elements is obvious in features like button tufting, channeled backs, unique shapes, sculptural lines and striking legs. Take the stems on their Ames chair and sofa, for instance. These tapered stunners end in glamorous brass caps. As minute as this detail may be, that’s all it takes to elevate a design to new heights of style. And truly, that’s all it takes to make us swoon.

Trend 3 | Ode to Architecture Both Nate and Jeremiah possess a deep appreciation for pivotal style eras and time periods, as well as influential designers and architects. In fact, several of the pieces in their collection were inspired by specific design movements and works from their favorite artists.
