If you wish your home could get a makeover on “Queer Eye,” you’re in luck: The Fab Five’s home designer, Bobby Berk, has just released a furniture line, now available at AllModern. And it’s reportedly already selling out!

“I’ve always known I wanted to create a furniture collection that was both modern and elegant while being versatile enough to blend with existing home items,” Berk told realtor.com® about his new line of 44 furnishings, made in collaboration with A.R.T. Furniture. “Every piece in this collection is not only something that can stand on its own, but the entire collection was designed to be mixed and matched.”

As for his own design style, “my own personal style is modern and clean with an attention to detail,” Berk says. “I love to mix textures and bring in interest through a layering of tones and materials.”

And his collection reflects that: “Every piece marries a few different materials together to create interest. We brought in vegan leather, brass, walnut woods, and more to create pieces that are truly unique.”

And these furnishings are surprisingly affordable, with prices as low as $400. Here are a few noteworthy items to try nabbing before they’re gone.

Arne end table

Elegant legs and a useful lower shelf combine for a brilliant side table.

The universality of this piece ($550, AllModern) struck a chord.

“It could be used in any room to accent a chair, sofa, or even in the bedroom—and the size works well for smaller-scale living as well as in larger homes,” notes Karen Gray-Plaisted of Design Solutions KGP.

And the combination of materials is the icing on the cake. “The mix is stylish enough to be used in a home that’s formal or in one that’s more minimalistic,” she adds.

The simplicity of the design of this cabinet ($1,580, AllModern) won over the pros.

“I see this working in a dining room to display glassware and dishes, but also in a library filled with books or as bedroom storage for clothes stacked neatly on the shelves,” says Gray-Plaisted.

The wood, metal, and glass components make this a smart pick in a variety of home styles, including farmhouse, traditional, midcentury modern, or even bohemian.

Sara Chiarilli, an interior designer with Artful Conceptions, also loved the clean lines and the versatile walnut and black color pairing.

“This is a great update of Frank Lloyd Wright‘s plains designs,” she notes.

Behold—the perfect looking glass for a half-bath or foyer

“I am in love with the Jonsi mirror,” says Chiarilli.

Its round shape, mixed metals, and midcentury aesthetic make the mirror ($430, AllModern) appropriate in a dining room, entryway, or bathroom.

Lehn nightstand

Chic dark wood mixes nicely with metallic accents in this two-drawer piece.

The Lehn table ($680, AllModern) includes both copper and wood grain, making it fun and dramatic at the same time, says Chiarilli.

“It’s modern without being overly modern, and it also lends itself well to transitional design,” she adds.

Brekke credenza

This piece gets high marks for its deep cubbies and hidden interior drawers.

Back in the day, lots of families had a credenza, a piece that’s akin to a sideboard or buffet.

This modern take ($1,150, AllModern) from Berk’s line has retro throwback elements, says Drew Henry, founder of Design Dudes: “The lines are sleek and simple, but the wood inlay offers a bold geometric pattern that makes a statement without being overwhelming.”

Picture this piece in a large hall or dining room, topped with serving pieces, large vases, and a fabulous lamp.

Wenck tall chest

Yup, it’s tall, but a tip-over restraint device is included for safety.

This asymmetrical chest of drawers ($1,060, AllModern) is just plain fun—you almost feel a sense of surprise when you approach it, says Henry.

“And the triangle drawer pull cutouts are perfect for keeping the piece low-profile, while still adding some whimsy,” he adds. This bureau is at home in a teen bedroom, guest space, or for extra storage in a walk-in closet.

Bar stool

Choose your height—bar stool and counter stool are both available.

These stools ($520, AllModern) are priced fairly for their features, including a solid wood frame and seat and a comfortable woven back.

Two sizes offer flexibility in the home: Counter stools are 24 inches high and the bar version is 30 inches.

Upholstered Karina chair

Two tones and curvy lines make this chair a winner.

The Karina chair ($520, AllModern) sports soft cushions on the bottom and top that come in either ivory or brown—and there’s even a choice of frame color (black or brown).

Consider the lighter shade for a feminine bedroom instead of a slipper chair, while the darker hue is a great pick in a home office.
