Left: Erin: We drink a lot of coffee, and Smeg has the best and most aesthetically pleasing coffee grinders to accent your kitchen. It’s the cutest way to grind in the mornings.

Left: Anna: We envision Artistic Tile’s Bianco Onyx Field Tile elegantly covering the walls and floors of a bathroom, juxtaposed with clean white porcelain and brushed gold hardware. Also, handmade plaster decor accents. Oh, and a chandelier, a HUGE chandelier.
Right: Anna: I would love to wake up to a playful pop of color like this in my NYC bathroom! We can see this Fantini i Balocchi Tap, designed by Paolo Pedrizzetti and Davide Mercatali, with an oversized bold floral wallpaper giving a small space some big fun.

Left: Anna: The Dune Table by Lorna Lee John Muller Designs for Holly Hunt is beautiful and easy to clean, two ideal qualities in a coffee table. Dune will be a conversation starter in any room of your home.
Right: Erin: The Camaleonda sofa by B&B Italia is the quintessential living room centerpiece. Not only is it fabulously sculptural, but the vibrant color and fabric are cozy, bold, and in my opinion, perfection.

Left: Erin: The Pablo Armchair by B&B Italia can stand out as a beautiful art piece, but straightforward enough to mesh with other decors. Pablo’s clean lines and resilient materials perfectly reflect the ethos of Swift Studios: modern, organic, and supremely functional.
Right: Anna: We love the look of Hastings Tile & Bath’s Class floating vanity. The soft textured wooden doors are in contrast to the sleek, sharp steel edges and porcelain countertop.

Left: Anna: A gorgeous, oversized copper tub gives me all the feels. The Cooper Tay by Drummonds would live in the center of my bedroom, filled with bubbles, or in a guest house overlooking a lavender field. I’m relaxed just thinking about it.
Right: Erin: We love the Reverence, by Fernando Mastrangelo for Edward Fields. The way it emulates nature; organic, chaotic, abstract. We constantly implement curved lines and natural shapes in our design, and the Reverence is a unique focal point that captivates the eye. The irregular shape gives us the freedom to arrange any space dynamically.

Left: I am blown away by Edward Fields’ Ice Crystal Border I: a stunning geometric abstract area rug from the On-The-Fringe Collection. The unconstrained artistry of the collection makes it the ideal choice for dressing the floor or the wall.
Center: The Integrated Wine column by Fisher & Paykel is the ultimate kitchen showpiece for both the homeowner who values modern aesthetics and the cultivated wine collector who is seeking exceptional wine storage. I love how these cooling columns are designed to fit flush with cabinetry for a beautifully seamless installation.

Left: Cover, from Poliform’s Senzafine collection, flawlessly combines functionality, modern aesthetics, and distinctive elegance while seamlessly concealing whatever it is you want to hide.
Right: The Floair Collection from Florense delivers minimalism and a sense of lightness without neglecting sturdiness and functionality. Details include hidden hinges and embedded LED lighting. It’s the ideal cabinet, curio, or closet system for any contemporary interior.

Left: Enamel, exclusive to Artistic Tile, is an alluring ceramic tile collection sourced in Spain, that has a distinctive painterly effect. Offered in six stunning nature-inspired colors, Enamel will bring strong stylish presence to both commercial and residential interiors.
Right: Holly Hunt’s Oryx outdoor dining table is one of the most beautifully nuanced table base silhouettes I have seen in a while. It is a sculptural manifestation of the elongated horns of the oryx, a regal and beautiful desert animal.

Left: The Tam Tam side table, designed by Moss & Lam, through Holly Hunt, is imaginative, whimsical, and sculptural. I love that each unique table is handcrafted using the ancient technique of scagliola.
Right: Hans Krug’s Line custom cabinetry in DOM American walnut veneer simply embodies the best of what I consider unpretentious elegance. Both modern and classic, I could never tire of this Line. Pun intended.
