According to Williams, the gorgeous Jesse Sectional praises his grandfather, a typical gentleman, who is always well organized and stylish. Named after Williams’ father, the Van Accent Chair is a minimalist yet classic with tufts of velvet or vegan leather and a polished gold stainless steel frame.

“The TOV Voice collection is a long-deferred initiative, and the name“ Voice ”is all about it,” says Williams. “This collection emphasizes industry representations that talented designers often overlook or underestimate. This initiative means the world to me. I myself enjoy it. It’s been overlooked after double the effort to create beautiful spaces and content. It’s a wonderful moment to be truly grateful. “
