In partnership with Parisian atelier Astier de Villatte, NYC designer and découpage artist John Derian has released a series of 19th Century-inspired tablewares. Each piece, handmade in Paris from glazed terracotta, features one of Derian’s images or patterns. Here, this nine-inch-tall teapot wears a striking Théière Marbre Turquoise Orange Noir print—that varies from piece to piece.
Built in Detroit from a powder-coated, die-cast zinc casing and a stamped aluminum dial, this limited edition Runwell Wall Clock was conceived of by two CH favorites in the time-keeping design industry: George Bamford and Shinola. Bamford and Shinola’s team conceptualized the 14-inch product together—and Bamford’s signature light-blue pops against the clock’s dynamic gray-scale coloration. The clock can be hung or rested upon the included black-lacquered American oak stand.
Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for FLOS, the Bellhop lamp is a wireless, portable light that’s chargeable via USB. Designed to emulate a candle, this lamp can be carried around the house much like the chamberstick of yesteryear. Holding its charge for 24 hours, the Bellhop measures a little over eight inches in height and is available in four colorways: gray, burnt orange, dark brown or white.
This Workaday hand-built clock—which stands on its own or can be mounted to the wall—features a matte finish and swirling pools of marbled underglaze. The number-less face and the piece’s dreaminess make this a welcome addition to any shelf, art-adorned wall or bedside table. And, since you can’t tell the exact time on this one, only estimate, it’s the perfect way to watch time tick by—while reading, lounging or listening.
Wary Meyers’ Xanadu candle is made for changing seasons. This winter edition fragrance is a blend of anise, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. From wick to packaging, the brand is conscious of their ecological impact. The wicks are 100% cotton, the boxes are made from recycled paper, the casing is made from recycled glass, and the candles are made from a blend of premium food-grade paraffin.
Made from 100% cotton, this embroidered pillow from Dusen Dusen is a color-block delight. The array of hues beautifully incorporates both neutrals and pastels. Available in two sizes (18 inches or 24 inches), it’s canvas-backed to ensure a bit of structure no matter how many times you rest on it.
The Rod+Perf Stool/Table is a beautifully designed, foot-and-a-half tall, steel addition to any living space—and it comes in nine different colors. Its multi-functionality is rooted in its simplicity; it’s sturdy enough to be a stool, tall enough to be a side table, and designed with a perforated top to be the perfect plant holder. Just kept away from humid or wet conditions—the steel frame will rust.
The Candelabra from Tom Dixon is an spinning centerpiece with almost infinite arrangements. Its crane-like figure makes for elegant decor appropriate for all kinds of occasions. Stock the four holders with tall candles or tea lights for various lighting moods.
AYTM’s fall/winter collection is full of beautiful, minimal pieces in which to display candles. Handmade, each of these glass lanterns will differ slightly—from color variations to small imperfections. Its tinted gray/blue hue and sleek silhouette is a luxurious, old-worldly way to create a little mood lighting.
Each season, an artisan-produced candle has been released in the Roman and Williams GUILD collection—which can now be accessed via subscription service. Designed by Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer, the candles are hand-poured in NYC and use only the finest materials. Exemplifying this, the just-released Soleil du Guild Original No.3 candle (made in collaboration with Garance Doré, Brooklyn-based glassblower Andrew O Hughes and Land By Land) employs natural beeswax, vegetable waxes, pure essential oils and 100% cotton wicks. It smells of juniper, rose and an array of berries—summer embodied. The subscription service grants immediate shipment of this and the next three seasonal candles as they release.
Made from black metal, leather and natural maple, KILLSPENCER’s sophisticated mini basketball kit lets you unobtrusively toss an equally mini rubber basketball across the room and (hopefully) into the net. This piece, from the LA-based luxury brand, is made in the USA and weighs approximately 35 pounds.
In runner form, famed designer David Hicks’ orange and red hexagonal-patterned carpet accents the home of any Stanley Kubrick fan. Fortunately, however, it doesn’t overwhelm with the same shocking sensations one finds within Kubrick’s film The Shining, which features the pattern from wall to wall in The Overlook Hotel. It’s just the right amount of reference, without being too garish or kitsch. Further, this officially licensed, limited edition rug is custom-made and hand-tufted from one-ply wool. Price is in Pounds.
Available in 30, 15 and three minute sizes, HAY’s “Time” hourglass collection modernizes a unique nostalgic character. Made with glass and colored sand, the organic-shaped time-telling devices come in various colors—nude, petrol, grass green, and burnt orange—that are reminiscent of mid-century modern palettes.
Elevate your desk game with this 100% cow leather pen holder by Canadian brand Maple. Made with two ply suede, it’s soft but sturdy—and roomy enough for more than just pens and pencils. Made in Canada, it’s a subtle desk accessory, available in two colorways. (Price is in CAD.)
Available now for pre-order, Slow Down Studio’s Perry throw blanket is designed by Melbourne-based Claire Ritchie and woven with 100% cotton.

Whether or not you believe in the merits of burning sage or palo santo wood for their more mystical attributes, there’s something soothing about both scents—and a ritual-like repetition of use. J Southern Studio has assembled a kit with these and many other items, for the sake of happiness and inspiration. For those in need of a well-intentioned ritual, be it in the morning or for breaks at work, a kit like this offers a few points of entry—and a handful of divine fragrances.
With mirror segments set into walnut wood, Brooklyn-based design duo Trueing’s #3000 Mirror invokes the style of terrazzo tiling for a distinct aesthetic that offers surprising visual warmth. The oiled walnut iteration is the second from the brand, with the first mirror primarily from honed concrete and marble, and they both follow Trueing’s extraordinary Janus Table Lamp. With the mirror alone as evidence, this is a brand to follow.
Despite its name, IIUVO and Stefan Brüggemann’s “Bullshit” candle smells divine. With notes of Sichuan pepper, grapefruit, lavender, musk, guaiac wood and more, the candle was inspired by the theory of bullshit. According to the makers, the scent has been derived from the idle content that’s found between truth and invention; the things we think but don’t say. Price is in Euros.
With 40 hours of burn time, this natural wax, hand-poured candle continuously smells divine. Floral notes of neroli and lilac are balanced against heavier fragrances, including tobacco and cedar. The black and white vessel, with a bold font, makes for a sophisticated but playful item. Price in British Pounds.
With around 30 hours of burn time, this candle from Maison Margiela is floral-forward, warm and alluring. With notes of patchouli, iris, orange, pear and white musk, the scent has been crafted to evoke a lazy Sunday morning. This candle will fill a room with a soft, clean fragrance as it burns.
Frances Cannon’s “Dancing Ladies”-themed illustrations have been a longtime favorite of Melbourne-based studio Third Drawer Down, and now they’ve put the artwork on a dish towel.

More than hand-poured soy enriched with tropical fruit scents, the Silver Lake Candle from Raven + Lily is produced by women who have transitioned out of homelessness in the Los Angeles area. A lush mango and grapefruit profile arises from the eight-ounce nature-inspired object. Just as soothing, however, is the idea of empowering women who need more employment opportunities.
Designed by Daniele ‘Danne’ Semeraro for Sempli, the Vaso Vino decanter aerates wine—up to an entire bottle’s worth—in a striking and uncommonly tilted shape. The hand-blown, lead-free crystal decanter carefully rests on it side, allowing the liquid to breathe but also makes for an easy pour from its circular top.
