CB2 launches vintage furniture collection curated by Charlie Ferrer

American brand CB2 has launched its first range of vintage furniture in collaboration with curator Charlie Ferrer, offering rare mid-century European designs.

The CB2 x Ferrer collection debuts in stores from 14 March 2019 with a selection of pieces sourced from Italy, France, Germany and more.

"Charlie scouted the finest dealers, shops and galleries in Europe to gather vintage treasures rich in history and typically unavailable to the everyday shopper," said the CB2 website.

The variety of designs range from larger items like desks, dining tables and chairs, to smaller homeware such as lamps. Prices vary between $60 and $11,500 (£45 to £8,730).

Many were produced during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, in keeping with the mid-century aesthetic that remains popular in the US and beyond.

Featured in the collection are a wooden desk fronted with a grid of triangular facets, designed by Guglielmo Ulrich, and a table with a glass top and chunky concrete legs by Giovanni Offredi.

Examples of seating on offer include a chrome and leather chaise lounge by Guido Faleschini, an upholstered Slipper Chair by Joseph-Andre Motte for Steiner, and a bent wood design by Franco Albini.

Lighting options encompass triangular glass and metal table lamps, and a tall standing model with a bulbous lucite shade.

Since the items are typically one-offs, the selections available in store will differ. After the initial roll-out in select stores, the CB2 x Ferrer will be made available in all of the brands US and Canada locations through May 2019.

The CB2 line was created by retailer Crate and Barrel to target a younger market, and the collaboration with Ferrer is its first foray into vintage furnishings.

The brand also recently collaborated with Gwyneth Paltrow's wellness company Goop on a home furnishings collection, influenced by mid-century Italian and modernist design.

Ferrer runs a New York City-based interior design studio and gallery, and has completed residential and commercial projects on the East and West Coasts.
