The Atlas bookshelf from Paul Rene’s 2023 Kallos collection
The ancient Greeks believed true beauty to be an amalgamation of three major elements: symmetry, proportion and harmony. Paul Rene has expanded this ethos with its 2023 furniture line, Kallos, the Greek word for beauty, translating the splendor of the Sonoran Desert into a stunning collection. “We seek Kallos when we yearn for peace, comfort and a sense of well-being in our homes,” says designer and founder Paul Jeffrey. “Kallos is the contribution of ancient Greece to defining the notion of beauty that prevails to this day.” Offerings include the flea bench featuring a bright pop of sea glass green reminiscent of the native saguaro, while the Adonis coffee table and Aphrodite sofa pair perfectly as a modern translation of the Greek love story. The line will debut at Bentley Gallery Oct. 14, and will also be on offer in the brand's upcoming showroom, projected to open later this December. paulrenefurniture.com
