Launch: Angela Harris for Phillips Collection

“My love of design comes from the notion that things are meant to be beautiful, and our intention to find and create such beauty comes through collaboration,” says Angela Harris, founder, CEO and principal of Denver-based design firm Trio. Harris recently partnered with Phillips Collection, a to-the-trade furniture manufacturer known for organic-contemporary furnishings, to create three collections that marry clean lines with artful details: The Ladder collection’s linear chairs, sofas (shown) and tables with metal ladder backs and bases play with negative space. Intersection’s boxy wood coffee tables are inlaid with crisscrossing metal bands. And the Bordo Collection’s channel-tufted-leather sofa and chair seats seem carved into sleek cubes of suar wood.
