In Good Company

Skim the artful opus that is the Janus et Cie catalog, and the imprint of Janice Feldman is unmistakable. But everyone needs to collaborate now and then. So, the president and CEO shares the spotlight this season with some kindred talents. In Fibonacci, Interior Design Hall of Fame member Michael Gabellini and Partner Kimberly Sheppard capture the voluptuousness of supple materials draped over structure — in this case, handwoven Janus fiber or rattan over powder-coated galvanize steel. Seating options in the nine-piece collection include the asymmetrical Avanda recamier, its high back gradually sloping to meet the seat. The Landa lounger’s bowed front points to the ground, giving rear legs a slight reveal. Ava boldly bears its legs beneath an upright seat. Conversly, circular Alba envelopes the body, balancing on tripod legs. Finally, the gentle curves of the Vantana daybed naturally follow the reclining human form.
