Invisible Collection launches ClubRoom: a ready-to-buy selection of curated pieces for the home

Offering contemporary and vintage furniture and accessories, ClubRoom is a new manifestation of the highly sought-after aesthetic offered by Invisible Collection.

The Invisible Collection offers a carefully curated range of pieces for the home designed in collaboration with artists, interior designers and makers both online and from its central London headquarters. Since it first opened its virtual doors (it began as an e-commerce venture) in 2016, it has become a destination for those looking for collectible design, curated by those with fiercely good eyes. Over the years, the collection has worked with the likes of Pierre Yovanovitch, Allegra Hicks and House & Garden Top 100 interior design studio Collett Zarzycki, to name a few. Last year, it moved into its new headquarters in Huntsworth Mews, London.

Launching this week is the latest venture from founders Isabelle Dubern-Mallevays, Anna Zaoui and Lily Froehlicher: ClubRoom. Broadening the offering of Invisible Collection, ClubRoom is ‘a bit like an introduction to the brand’, explains Isabelle. Working with a continuously-changing number of small brands, galleries, designers and makers, ClubRoom will hold an eclectic mixture of vintage and contemporary furniture, accessories, textiles, decorative objects, glassware and candles. Some of these will be exclusive to ClubRoom, and some part of limited-edition collaborations. The pieces are all available to buy on the spot, whereas those through Invisible Collection are made to order.

‘I felt really strongly that these pieces should be accessible to those who don’t have a large budget’, explains Isabel. ‘You can still have great taste even if you don’t have lots of money’. And this certainly is a representation of good taste. Appealing to a younger generation of collectors, there are indeed some more budget-friendly pieces: there’s a collection of six painted plates made by french ceramicist, Ines Olympe Mercadal for £330, and a bright and floral pillar candle made by The Waxness which can be yours for £20.

Just as exciting here is the addition of vintage pieces. ‘We’re naturally drawn to pieces made between 1930 and 1960’, says Isabelle. The pieces tend to be from either French, Italian or Scandinavian designers, as is the preference of the team at Invisible Collection. The collection launches with, amongst many treasures, a pair of ‘Gamla Berlin’ chairs designed in the 1940s by Carl Malmsten and a ‘Coiffeuse’ table by Jean-Michel Frank.

As for limited edition pieces, we don’t imagine that the ‘Crystal Clear Vase’ by the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh for Baccarat will hang around for long, much less the delicate gold ‘Mistletoe Candelabrum’ by Goossens Paris.

Though the collections will be mainly online, selected items will be on display at the Invisible Collection showrooms in London, Paris and New York. There are hundreds of exciting things here: not limited to one category, time period, or price bracket, you could lose hours browsing through the items, and ever-changing as it’ll be, you may never reach the end.
