Floral designer Lewis Miller, perhaps best known for his inspiring “Flower Flashes” (guerilla-style art installations made from blooms), channels the joy of his creations into the Flower Flash Candle. Although made in France, Miller’s candle humorously nods to NYC trash cans with its patterned design and green-tinted glass. When lit, notes of jasmine and lily of the valley join grapefruit bark. A portion from the proceeds from sales will be donated to Crossroads Homeless Shelter at NYC’s St Bartholomew’s Church.
Yamazaki’s stylish laundry basket pairs a white steel frame (which measures 16 by 16 by 18 inches) with comfortable wooden handles. The Japan-designed basket can carry up to 22 pounds of laundry, and weighs four pounds on its own. Its simple design renders it easy to carry, and its minimal look is far more pleasant than many other options.
This Moonrise reed diffuser set includes a custom-printed glass vessel, nine reeds, and the fragranced oil inside, which references the aroma of “late-night crowds, the lure of the dance floor” and “smoke and strange perfumes.” That scent—rich with notes of yuzu, Indian jasmine, and smoked cedar wood—disperses evenly throughout a room, leaving it subtly enveloped in the fragrance. Part of the limited edition Sunset Collection, this particular piece—an earthy green with minimalist black and gold art that depicts the moonrise—is inspired by spending the summer season in California.
Available in several sizes and hues, this 100% cotton rope planter has been ice-dyed by Charlotte Rigby (aka No Slouch Studios) in London. Made by hand, this particular iteration measures 12cm tall, with an equal sized base. Perfect for hiding plastic pots and adding extra color to a room.
Designed specifically for 2015 to current Apple iMac and iMac Pro, Nack Studio’s Base lends height and stability to an office set-up. The domestically grown and sustainably sourced black maple ash stand comes in two- or four-inch versions, allowing for variability in how you configure your workspace. Finished with a coating of OSMO Poly-X oil, the Base will withstand regular use and its microporous surface means it’s extra easy to wipe clean.
Constructed from 100% brushed, hand-loomed alpaca, CH favorite Jonathan Adler’s aptly titled Droplet Coverlet features a piano key-like pattern of elongated drops and lollipop shapes. Thrown over the top of a bed or a couch, the cover acts as its own hybrid: a combination of a throw and a woven comforter. Each made-to-order item is woven by hand in Peru and measures out to 98 by 96 inches.
Shaped like a Japanese Dango dumpling, these ceramic Daruma wishing dolls are made by Manchester-based artist Amy Victoria Marsh. Available in two sizes, each doll is crafted from stoneware clay and comes with an instruction card for use. As with the traditional Daruma, users think of a goal or wish and color in the doll’s left eye and, once the goal has been achieved, they color in the right. Price is in Pounds.
A rug unlike any other, the Magic Carpet (created from scratch by F Taylor) is not only soft, flexible, UV stable and phthalate-free, but entirely biodegradable. Transparent eco-friendly plastic, made in the USA, composes the surprisingly opulent piece, accented with dynamic patterning and hand-knotted fringing. Complete with non-slip beads, this intriguing addition to any room adds personality without covering up existing floors.
From the three-piece Love Collection by Boy Smells (founded by Matthew Herman and David Kien), the Jade Vert all-natural coconut and beeswax candle comes housed in a jade-green glass tumbler. As for the fragrance, it’s refreshing but soft; boasting notes of mint, fig, daffodil and mediterranean cypress, as well as juniper berry, tarragon and basil. While herbaceous, it’s a delicate and elegant scent that gently permeates, but doesn’t intrude, as it burns.
Designed in Brooklyn by Bien Mal, this super-soft, 100% cotton throw balances a bold statement with exquisite details. In contrasting white knit, “NO” is obviously spelled out. On the backside, NO remains, this time in black on a rainbow weave. The item is framed by multi-color fringing on the two longer sides, and black and white fringing on the others. Measuring 60 by 50 inches, this blanket is large and cozy, if a little brazen.
Made from raw and wild plant ingredients, these breu resin incense sticks last for 50 minutes each, but are effective enough to burn a little at a time. Available with different botanical options blended in, our favorite is Palo Santo. The combination offers healing, cleansing and protective qualities with a scent that invokes Southwest US vibes. They come in a set of nine.
Handmade in Oaxaca from local beeswax and natural dyes, Aesa’s opulent bouquet candles all vary slightly. Each unique piece has been produced by a family that’s been crafting religious candles for three generations. The items measure approximately 12 inches tall before burning.
Handmade in Beacon, New York, this five-inch-tall glass bowl features three gentle spikes to keep it balanced and upright. It’s delicate (though dishwasher safe), semi-translucent and big enough to hold snacks or a handful of jewelry. Cast and sandblasted, the object’s distinct near-orange color glows from beneath a soft matte finish.
From husband and wife team, Jim and Chloe Read, British design brand Newgate produces wall clocks, wristwatches and alarms with contemporary twists and nostalgic shapes. Their battery-powered Charlie Bell Echo Clock epitomizes this amalgamation with its fire engine red metal case, glass lens and graphic dial. A “no tick” movement within makes it quieter than most, except when the twin-bell alarm sounds a wake-up call.
Huts and Bay’s lightweight cotton pet bed, in their distinct camo graphic print, measures 31 by 37 inches and retains its shape through wear and tear. A plush removable insert, beneath an exterior with an anti-bacterial and anti-mite finish, makes cleaning easier. It’s ideal for small to medium-sized pets, who’ll surely love the comfort it provides.
Areaware’s tall stoneware stacking planter (which stands eight inches wide and eight inches tall) comprises two parts—a planter and a drainage dish—that nestle into one another to create one clean silhouette. With holes for excess water to escape, the planter is super-functional and easy to clean, while remaining an attractive object for the home. Also available in a smaller four-inch tall size.
