Powerhouse designer Rafael de Cárdenas is lending his expertise to American-crafted furnishings in a new 19-piece collection with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Spanning sculptural chairs, plush sofas and expansive bed frames, the line demonstrates the brand’s commitment to comfort, sustainability and localized production.

“The Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams factory is a place where American craftsmanship has a home,” Cárdenas says. “Together we made the collection my childhood dreams were made of and ensured that it would be accessible for every taste.” Aligned with the designer’s wider inspiration and defined by a careful blending of classical articulation and contemporary refinement, the collection draws inspiration from film and other cultural reference points.

Both distinct and adaptable, the pieces are available in a variety of finishes and in the brand’s extensive gamut of over 500 textiles, while the different tables and settees are rendered in sensuous and soft curves but anchored in sophisticated, structural armatures.
