Partnering with MoMA Design Store, the Homepolish team imagined an evening with their new line of colorful products released this season.

We have to admit it. When it comes to New York’s Museum of Modern Art, we love getting lost in the works of Picasso, Lichtenstein, and Warhol (to name a few) just as much as getting lost in the aisles at the affiliate MoMA Design Store. In fact, we eagerly await the new catalogue every season. You can only imagine our excitement when we got to partner with the shop to showcase their new “soft bright” collection of products.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. “Soft brights?” Is that just pastel… pastel for the warmer season? Groundbreaking. Well, get outta here, Miranda Priestly! These products are absolutely dynamic and to prove it, we styled them in Homepolish designer New York apartment. The vibrant colors made us imagine a swanky game night…’s
Naturally, any host needs to look their finest for the party. Constance Guisset’s Francis Mirror, with border hues reminiscent of bold makeup colors (or Lady Gaga’s Artpop cover), provides a gorgeous reflection, easily the fairest of them all. In a perfect world, our perfumes, colognes, and jewelry would be held in Origami Dishes (also good for dinner service) and propped up on acrylic Jou-Jouer blocks, made and individually hand-finished by craftsmen in Japan. And of course, everything would be lit by a neatly appointed w135 Lile Lamp, modeled after traditional French clamp lamps. It’s so cute that we wanna put it away in our pocket and carry it around with us always.
A Bright Welcome
Nothing is more important than a strong first impression, and for the home, that’s the entryway. The Hello Coat Rack, inspired by the neon signs of Tracey Emin, literally greets guests at the door (and meets those functional needs as well). And every entry needs some accessories to make you feel at ease. For some additional visual interest, we added in the Knot Cushion, an adorable Icelandic design available in six colorways, and the Memphis-inspired Volta Desktop Mobile. Hey! Who says you can only use it for a work surface? We liked how the yellow zigzag played off the “hello.”
The Main Event
And of course, we couldn’t have our game night without a game! Smh. Our centerpiece of the shoot was the Colorful Backgammon Set, built of beechwood and decorated in a rainbow of colors. It’s definitely a piece to step up your boardgame game. Holding our snacks and drinks (always a must), we used Pastel Nesting Bowls, made of lightweight sustainable bamboo fiber, and Nomad Glasses in a stunning ombre colorway. Those make any drink (in our case, simple sparkling water) classy. Pinkies out, ladies and gentlemen! And for a final pop of color, we added in the Field Candlestick.
