This season’s picks are dedicated to home design pieces and accessories that inspire — a wish list of sorts in celebration of texture, dimension and color. If something makes you happy in your home, it doesn’t really matter if it makes sense to anyone else. Your home is the place to surround yourself with the comforting objects you love, no matter what’s trending.

In recent years, Moda Operandi has branched out into homeware with its own collection, Moda Domus. The line features an exquisite, colorful range, including alluring vases, elegant trays and intricate candleholders crafted by skilled artisans. Whether you love Murano glass or speckled ceramics, these pieces are beautiful for entertaining.

The Buchanan Studio Chair is an Internet darling; I know I’ve pinned it and saved it many times over. The bold striped linen upholstery and the drama of the oversize cushions make for a dream chair. Creative Director Angus Buchanan has extensive experience working with iconic brands such as Dior, Versace and Comme des Garçons, among others. His expansive creativity is obvious through all that the multidisciplinary studio produces.

The name Fferrone has become synonymous with elegant glassware design marrying minimal exterior lines, unique forms, durability and sophistication. Inspired by her experience as an architect in Milan, Chicago native Felicia Ferrone’s pieces are made for regular use, are dishwasher-safe, and are suitable for both hot and cold liquids — and are favorites of Kelly Wearstler.

Founded by husband-and-wife team David Seth and Kavi Moltz, D.S. & Durga celebrates the power of scent to summon memories and emotion. The brand’s Big Sur After Rain candle lives up to its name, capturing the unique essence of eucalyptus trees lining Highway 1 after a good downpour. As the candle burns, the scent develops a more complex earthy and floral medley. It takes an expert nose to craft this organic fragrance that evokes top-down, wind-in-your-hair rides along the Pacific Coast. 

Arturo Alvarez’s Tempo Vivace Pendant is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. It reminds me of custom millinery with pointelle-like dotting and Issey Miyake–level pleats, yet it’s made with painted stainless-steel mesh. Its size and scale make it perfect for a variety of spaces, from grand foyers to intimate dining areas. The pendant’s unique design allows it to cast a dreamy diffused glow.

My very best,
