We can always count on Anthropologie to bring us some of the most beautiful decor pieces to instantly elevate our interiors. Traditionally famed for its folksy, whimsical style, the fashion and homeware brand has now launched a new range that masters the organic modern trend, and it's all thanks to a fresh collaboration with British creative director and designer, Ilse Crawford. 

Known for her humanistic approach to luxury design and contributions to various Soho House locations, Ilse's design studio, Studioilse, focuses on the power of design as a frame for life. The new capsule collection at Anthropologie epitomizes the warm tones, homey comfort, and natural influences of her work and features larger furniture items such s seating, ottomans, and lamps, as well as softer, more decorative textiles like pillows and throws.

A primary aim of the collaboration was to make functional furniture that's suitable for small-space living without sacrificing on style. 'Our approach was to create a collection of lightweight, easy-to-move pieces in tactile, natural materials,' says Ilse. 'Their soft shapes and extra storage are designed to elevate the idea of compact living.' Here are nine picks we're loving that we think you should consider for your modern home.

The Studioilse capsule collection is available to shop now exclusively at Anthropologie, with prices ranging from $98 to $2,598.
