Jack Fhillips, the Palm Beach designer known for his “old money” look, has added a new furniture collection to his portfolio of designs that range from condos to an $81 million yacht.
Fhillips created a namesake collection of 28 pieces for E.J. Victor, a quality furniture company that also features collections by Ralph Lauren and Palm Beach designer Allison Palladino.
The partnership began when Fhillips needed a lot of furniture fast for a job up north. A friend recommended he order from E.J. Victor because of its reputation for quality and finishes. He worked closely with the company’s designers on this job. They liked what he did and proposed that he design a furniture line.
“It is sensuous, sexy and has the right scale,” Fhillips says. “So much furniture today looks like it’s on steroids. It is not puffed up so it can be used in a New York apartment.”
Some standouts in the collection are the Gloria Chase (starting at $3,747), the Lincoln Night Stand ($2,097) and the Michael Accent Chair ($2,625). For information go to www.ejvictor.com.
