Evoke wanderlust

Roksanda Ilinčić might be best known for her joyful clothing collections, but the designer is also a talented artist, as her expressive, sprit-lifting style would suggest. Evocative of travel and adventure, her limited-edition framed prints – including the vivacious ‘Amber Swimmer’ – showcase an original hand drawing, screen-printed to add a vibrant pop of color to any wall.

Industrial ambience

A sculptural statement centerpiece, Tom Dixon’s multicolored ‘Swirl’ candelabras are created from recycled powdered residue from the marble industry, mixed with resin and pigment. Vivid and attention-grabbing in their unique designs, they provide a striking focus for an atmospheric tablescape.

Beautiful bookends

Both a work of art and a purposeful piece, L’Objet’s faux coral and gold-plated bookend is inspired by the drifting, flowing movement of reefs around the Mediterranean coast. Sculpted by hand to incorporate more than 8,000 faux coral cabochons in a brilliant red hue, it will steal the show on your bookshelves.

Rule of three

Designed to emulate the natural drape and folds of fabric, this set of three ceramic vases – ‘Seam’, ‘Solitude’ and ‘Wake’ – comes from the magnificent collaboration between Completedworks and artist Ekaterina Bazhenova Yamasaki. Whether filled with a few stems to accentuate their unconventional angles, or simply styled as they are, the muted color palette and flowing silhouettes are an ultra-pleasing focus on a shelf or surface.

Blue-sky thinking

Best positioned by a window, Jia Jia’s tranquil celestine geodes will beam light rays across its sky-blue facets to dazzling and uplifting effect. Each crystal is completely unique, having been hand-selected and left uncut and untreated to retain the piece’s natural intricacy.

Reminiscent fragrance

Imbue your space with seasonal scents that bring an aroma of the outdoors in. Loewe’s home fragrances are inspired by Jonathan Anderson’s own kitchen garden, and are attractively ‘potted’ in handmade, glazed terracotta earthenware vessels. ‘Honeysuckle’, with its low-intensity, floral fragrance and warm-yellow pot, will instantly conjure a sense of sunshine inside.

Textured delights

Australian design studio Marloe Marloe are connoisseurs of stylish stoneware, which is handcrafted by artisans in small batches to ensure a lower impact on the planet. This ceramic duo consists of a coordinating plate and ring dish, with a textured surface and a smooth, glazed finish, and is designed to be either functional or decorative. Display your most-loved pieces on a vanity, or showcase on your coffee table for an enhanced aesthetic.

Bold displays

Early 20th-century cubism provides inspiration for this geometric earthenware collection, designed by Danish artist Nicholai Wiig-Hansen for Raawii, the Copenhagen studio known for its sleek, impactful homewares. The raised conical base gives impressive height, and the deep bowl makes it an ideal vessel to hold fruit or plants – or become a sculpture in its own right.

Eye-catching earthenware

Also from Raawii comes this large ‘Strøm’ jug in a radiant yellow shade. Showcasing the brand’s signature smooth earthenware, it’ll make an elevating addition to your dining table and is sure to become a talking-point piece among guests.

Vicarious traveling

To satiate our wanderlust while it is more difficult to do so in person, we are diving in to Assouline’s Turquoise Coast by Nevbahar Koç and Irem Kınay, which is filled with memories, secrets and incredible imagery from the Turkish Riviera, from the sparkling waters and ancient architecture to freshly caught cuisine. You’ll be transported straight to the Aegean and Mediterranean seas through its pages.

Art of surprise

Inspired by artist and interior designer Luke Edward Hall’s love of Greek and Roman mythology, this collaboration with Italian porcelain brand Ginori has a fantastical, storytelling quality. The ‘Viaggio di Nettuno’ gold-plated, green-painted pharmacy vase makes for a joyful feature on the mantelpiece.

The scent of siesta

A medley of lavender, juniper and thyme, influenced by Mediterranean mountain villages, La Montaña’s ‘Siesta’ candle hopes to transport you to a “gently swinging hammock in the shade of a tree, with crickets chirping and sun-baked fragrances of the countryside lulling you to sleep”. Take us there – immediately.

Traveling trinkets

Sophie Bille Brahe’s tasseled jewelry boxes in rich velvet are just as charming sitting pretty on a dressing table as they are keeping accessories safe while on the move.
