Rayman Boozer is as decorated an interior designer as they come. The brainchild behind lauded New York City outfit Apartment 48 and a regular feature on the pages of Livingetc, Rayman has worked for years on all kinds of interiors — lofts, studios, homes, and more — honing his craft and the expert color consulting skills for which he is well-known.
As you know, we here at Livingetc work to keep you, dear readers, abreast of any and all interior design trends and changes as they emerge. But we also love to hear directly from some of our favorite interior visionaries about what they're loving these days, as there is no better opinion than one from a bonafide expert.
To that end, we had the pleasure of speaking with Rayman about the furniture piece he's been loving lately, and think you're going to love what he has to say. And if you're not immediately swayed by his recommendation, you'll surely find something you like in the handy bit of shopping we've compiled below.
Rayman Boozer's current home interiors obsession
At the moment, Rayman told us he's been particularly loving sectional sofas from Mario Bellini. "The low profile, diverse color options, and surprising comfort make them a standout choice for contemporary living spaces," he said, while the "modular aspect adds a layer of versatility, allowing for creative configurations to suit different preferences and room layouts."
We completely agree — if the showstopping silhouettes of these couches weren't enough, the breadth of available colorways really seals the deal. There is a Bellini for everyone! "The combination of style, comfort, and adaptability makes it a noteworthy addition to any home," Rayman went on.
And he's not the only designer. Its the most common couch to be featured in Livingetc right now. "So many designers —-and homeowners — love the Camaleonda," says Livingetc editor in chief Pip Rich. "And for good reason. Its relaxed yet smart, offering you the chance to lie back and unwind or sit casually with friends and a cocktail. It suits exactly how we want to live right now, to have both options at the ready."
If you're in the market for a new sofa, feel free to take Rayman's recommendations at face value; you simply cannot go wrong with one as it's the best sofa on the market right now. (We've linked the Camaleonda below — you'll be the envy of your entire block!). But if you'd rather shop for something slightly different — in both design, modularity, color, and price — I've compiled a special inspired edit below.
9 stunning couches to shop
Much like Camaleonda, the Holmes sectional from Arhaus also features a low-profile silhouette ... though it otherwise strikes a completely different note.
The Tomasso is explicitly inspired by mid-century Italian design, so it's fitting it has some design elements in common with a Bellini. This white boucle sofa in particular is sculptural, show-stopping, and can be styled to match your layout.
Curved three-seater sofas are so fabulous for conversation. From Castlery, the Marlow has a mid-height profile with a great pattern to add some texture and interest.
Price: $3799.99 (21% off)
Much rounder than anything we've seen above, this upholstered piece from Wayfair has the ethos of a Bellini but in a more modern, more amorphous style.
A tuxedo couch is a piece of timeless furniture we'll always love. Luxurious, inviting, and warm ... just like this velvet sofa from Soho Home.
Channeling the curved edges of the Camaleonda while remaining in its own lane, the Bruna loveseat is such a luxe accent for a sitting room.
Bring the tufting into the fold with this brown leather sofa from Urban Outfitters, also available in other pieces so you could build a whole low-profile sectional.
