New Quintus Winter 2018 Furniture Designs By The Roger Thomas Collection
In an industry that functions based on pre-determined schedules and seasonal markets, a spark of inspiration is welcome. This past summer, Quintus partner, Roger Thomas, was filled with new ideas to add to the Quintus Furniture Collection, which launched this past Fall. The designs are both a nod to the past with a modern take on chinoiserie as well as lean into the future of livable tech with seamlessly hidden USB charging stations. The new additions include: two drink tables, one swivel chair, one sofa, three dining chairs, one coffee table and one bed.
Focused on the mission of supporting emerging talent by providing a platform to bring their vision and designs to market, Roger worked closely with Quintus design team to help fill in voids within the overall offering. Roger went through a prolific period of inspiration, drawing over 50 new potential designs to share with Quintus CEO, Jobst Blachy. Blachy explains, “I fell in love with many of the designs and we decided to develop the very best of these to introduce for the upcoming October Market at the PDC.”
With an intent to design the most comfortable sofa, The ‘Bed Pillow’, has a unique pitched seat and bed-pillow back cushions which provides a higher level of support for the back. In addition, the sofa features an interesting sculptural detail with a unique slanted backside.

The two new drink tables, The ‘Quips’, each feature a modern take on chinoiserie with a linen wrap. One table showcases a modern floral design, the other a modern stripe. Both tables feature a USB charging station hidden into the base of the table top where the wire runs discreetly through the center to the base.
The new ‘Quais’ platform bed features a rift oak base with an upholstered head and foot board.
