Nina Campbell for oomph

One of the more talked-about product debuts at the upcoming High Point Spring Market will likely be designer Nina Campbell's new collection for oomph.  The collaborative line includes two designs by which I'm particularly taken.  The first is the What Not, an étagère which becomes a pair of end or side tables when separated.  The other is the Billy Tray, which looks like it's ready-made for use at tea time or the cocktail hour.  What these two pieces have in common is that both were inspired by antiques that Nina owns.  In fact, Nina based the entire collection on antiques, which just goes to show that everything old can be new again.

Below, you can see photos of the what not and tray plus the antique pieces that inspired them.  And of course, in the oomph tradition, the designs are available in an array of colors and finishes, including four new colors that are exclusive to this collection.  For more information, please visit the oomph website

  1. Hello Jennifer, I admire Ms. Campbell not only for her taste, but also for having the sense to put the brilliant finishes on the reproductions, while leaving intact the wood-grained and time-scarred originals. I would be happy to own and use any of these objects, either the old or the new ones!
