New Home Decor in Stores for October
What’s new and noteworthy across the West.
We’ve scoured the West for the sexiest home decor newcomers and found an Italian-made chair that Optimus Primes into a laptop desk, must-have power clash pillows and an accessory that will aerate your wine in two minutes flat.
Good as Gold. When Warren Platner first designed his iconic chair for Knoll ($5,779; stool is $2,650), he dreamed of finishing it with gold—but only now, on the 50th anniversary of the beloved piece, is the technology possible. It’s a golden year. Gabriel Ross, Victoria, grshop.com; Livingspace, Vancouver, livingspace.com; Kit, Calgary, kitinteriorobjects.com; Inspired Home Interiors, Edmonton, inspiredhomes.ca
Salt of the Earth. Power clash like a boss with these endearingly loud Wrong for Hay cushions (from $125), designed by celebrated textile artist Nathalie Du Pasquier. Vancouver Special, Vancouver, vanspecial.com; Kit, Calgary, kitinteriorobjects.com
Total Eclipse of the Light. The two touching spheres of Flos’s Copycat light ($779) look like magnetized planets, one a softly glowing orb and the other its shimmering metallic junior. Livingspace, Vancouver, livingspace.com; Le Belle Arti, Calgary, lebellearti.com
Bottle Service. We know it’s important to hydrate, but we also know it’s important to do it in style. These limited-edition feather-print Mara Hoffman S’well bottles ($42) will do nicely. Indigo, across the West, indigo.ca
Flip Out. The Italian-made Chillap chair (from $5,680) features a movable arm pad that transforms the piece in an instant from a sleek armchair to an instant laptop desk or side table. Resource Furniture, Vancouver and Calgary, resourcefurniture.com
Wine O’Clock. Aerate your wine in two minutes flat with the ultra-efficient (and ultra-sleek) Menu Winebreather carafe ($73), then serve it straight from the vessel or decant it back into the original bottle. Espace D, Vancouver, espacedonline.com; Pomp and Circumstance, Calgary, pompandcircumstance.ca
Starry Night. Inspired by the night sky, the 18 Karat Nebula vase (from $42) brings a hit of galaxy-chic into your space, thanks to a speckled, black lustre finish. 18 Karat, Vancouver, 18karatstore.com; Home Evolution, Calgary, home-evolution.com; Dwell Modern, Edmonton, dwellmodern.ca
Make Like a Tree. Though the Calligaris Basil chair ($298) is made with a polypropylene seat, it nods to nature with a curved basil leaf shape. Though there is no basil green colour, mustard yellow, sky blue and candy-apple red make for fun selections.

Bright Light. The handcrafted DwellStudio Astrid chandelier ($2,850) is just on the right side of steampunk—the clean design and on-trend brass finish keeps it firmly in the 21st century.

Block Party. These hand-blocked, ultra-soft cotton bedding sets (duvet covers from $338) from Canadian company Kiska Textiles come in a variety of patterns, so mix and match the lacy mandalas, dotted diamonds and tiny Diamond Block prints to your heart’s content.
