The Wish List: 10 Home Decor Products We Love in October

A sofa that reminds of a chocolate bar, a room divider made luminous with resin flakes, a cozy blanket for cool nights, and more.

Divide and Conquer

The latest iteration of the Prairie divider screen ($3,800) by Henry Norris of Vancouver’s New Format Studio sees black lacquered aluminum and plastic composite panels textured with luminous resin flakes—an artful solution for partitioning open spaces or blocking natural light. newformatstudio.com

That’s a Wrap

Crisp shades of teal and copper update the classic plaid of the Ashton throw from Pendleton ($162), while 100-percent-wool construction will help keep the backyard party going late into the season. nordstrom.ca

Slip Shift

New work from ceramicist Cathy Terepocki, a past WL Maker of the Year, sees geometric shapes from cut paper on a quiet, decidedly neutral palette (vases $78 each). cathyterepocki.com

The Big Melt

Though officially named Drops ($4,399) for its resemblance to candy drops, we say this leather sofa is all Caramilk bar. cb2.com

Start Them Young

Design for Children (Phaidon, $80) catalogues 450 of the most enduring designs created exclusively for children. Expect recognizable favourites (wooden dolls by Alexander Girard, Kay Bojesen’s monkeys) alongside new work by the likes of Kengo Kuma and Peter Jakubik. chapters.indigo.ca

Throwing Shade

The hand-turned Italian marble base and pressed-steel shade of Normann Copenhagen’s Eddy table lamp ($1,335) meet on a brass ball, creating the function of a multidirectional desk light with the look of a traditional table lamp. Available in black, white and grey (as shown). themodernshop.com; guildhallhome.com

Fit to Print

Made by hand in limited editions, Upton canvas prints (Henge, as shown, 36 by 48 inches, $230) shake up white walls with fresh, unexpected colour combinations. oldfaithfulshop.com

Well Turned Out

Merging age-old carved motifs with modern utility (adjustable shelves, multiple cut-outs for cords in the back), the new Pictograph collection includes a night table, dresser, buffet and media console, each made from mango wood in a light flax finish or carbon (as shown, $2,239). westelm.ca

The Shape of Things

New from Rocky Mountain Hardware, the Ore collection (pricing on request) plays with facets, creating different profiles depending on the vantage point. vshl.ca; cantubathrooms.com; banburylane.com

Still Life

Noted for merging ancient materials with modern design, Anna Rabinowicz partnered with RabLabs to release this stunning Tondo bowl ($721), featuring Tuscan alabaster formed to allow the passage of light. atkinsonsofvancouver.com
