The Wish List: 10 Home Decor Pieces We’re Swooning Over Right Now

Graphic cushions, gorgeous glassware, sculptural bookends and more goods for the home.

Sense of Purpose

Christian Woo’s new Column series (dining table starting from $15,000; bench from $5,000; desk from $7,000) is by turns quiet and monumental. Available in natural walnut, blackened walnut, charred oak or whitewashed ash. christianwoo.com

Required Reading

With Currents (New Heroes and Pioneers, $65), IDS Vancouver surveys the work of 40 designers and makers in Pacific Northwest, including WL regulars ANDlight, Niels Bendtsen, Molo, Jeff Martin Joinery, Knauf and Brown and Cathy Terepocki. Curated by Jody Phillips for IDS Vancouver; preordered copies can be picked up at this year’s fair, happening September 20 to 23. vancouver.interiordesignshow.com

High Definition

We love the eye-popping, digital language of Rouge du Rhin, a studio founded by graphic artist Marianne Diemer. The Newport pillow (shown, $110) is printed on natural linen and comes with a feather and down insert. espacedonline.com

Squared Away

With its boxy metal frame, Crate and Barrel’s new Alessia chair ($2,799) sets a decidedly mod tone; wood accents and neutral upholstery move the look into the present. crateandbarrel.com

Well in Hand

Tiffany’s new Diamond Point glassware (double old-fashioned glass and highball glass shown, $90 each; set of four shot glasses, $170) sees the company’s signature shade applied to faceted crystal. tiffany.ca

Artist Statement

From her studio on Mayne Island, B.C., Zoë Luyendijk creates rugs with a luxurious, painterly quality. Their organic shapes and colours are inspired by “the wildness in nature and ourselves” (shown: the St. Lawrence rug, from the BZOD Maat collection, in taupe, burnt orange and indigo, $14,285). salari.com

On Display

Coloured glass figures prominently in Ikea’s Hjärtelig pieces—a material trend spotted in collections from Hay to Tom Dixon. Here, it makes up a series of cones and small dishes to keep odds and ends in their rightful place (jewellery dish, $10; cones sold in a set of three, $8). ikea.ca

Storybook Ending

The artful, occasionally whimsical designs of the late Austrian modernist Carl Auböck, including these patinated brass and cane bookends ($1,165), are still produced by his family-owned workshop in Vienna. litchfieldtheshop.com

Out of the Box

The components of DXV’s new Modulus collection combine to create streamlined bathrooms with thoughtful details. Among them: a double bowl sink that incorporates a semi-wet transition zone for toiletries and accessories and soft-close storage drawers with nubuck leather pull tabs (55-inch sink, $1,430; double countertop slab, $1,100; storage drawers, $1,430 each). kitchenandbathclassics.com; splashesonline.com; royalflushbathboutique.com  

Bright Idea
