Anissa Kermiche’s ‘Jugs Jug’ ceramic vase

Renowned for her spirit-raising designs, Anissa Kermiche’s playful and curvaceous ceramics take inspiration from the female form. Crafted out of pristine glazed porcelain, the ‘Jugs Jug’ will instantly lighten the mood of a room and become a showstopping centerpiece wherever it sits.

Assouline’s Marrakech Flair by Marisa Berenson

Devouring a magnificent Assouline tome feels almost akin to exploring a place for yourself – and is the ideal way to plan for future trips. Marrakech Flair captures the rich history and culture of the city, transporting readers around its very many wonders – from the lively souks to the tagine restaurants and the glorious architecture that gave rise to its ‘Ochre City’ nickname.

Fornasetti’s ‘Rossetti’ scented candle

Imbue your home with the brightening fragrance of wild flowers – a bouquet of white rose, iris, orange blossom, jasmine, ivy and tuberose, with earthy sandalwood and musk at the base – inspired by the gardens surrounding the Fornasetti manor in Milan. Equally beautiful is the handmade ceramic vessel it is potted in, which is adorned with the lips of Italian opera singer, actor and Fornasetti muse Lina Cavalieri.

L’Objet + Haas Brothers’ ‘Lazy Susan’ gold and porcelain bowl

The fantastical collaboration between L’Objet and Haas Brothers has a distinctly mischievous air and will inject a sense of whimsy to any surface. The porcelain and gold ‘Lazy Susan’ bowl is a signature monster in the collection, and a talking-pointing piece in which to keep trinkets or treats.

Johnstons of Elgin ‘Icon’ fringed cashmere throw

If you’re awaiting the arrival of sunnier times, there’s no greater comfort than cozying up in a cashmere throw, like this soft, gray, fringe-trimmed design from Johnstons of Elgin. Spun by Scottish artisans, it is as chic as it is sumptuous, and the perfect cocoon for cold seasons.

Completedworks + Ekaterina Bazhenova Yamasaki’s ‘Postures’ small ceramic vase

A captivating collaboration between Completedworks and visual artist Ekaterina Bazhenova Yamasaki resulted in sculptural ceramics series ‘The Fold’, and each piece is ultra-pleasing in form and texture. “We were looking at the way draperies have been used by painters over the centuries and how the details might say something about the painter’s mood,” Completedworks artistic director Anna Jewsbury told PORTER of the collection. The beautiful ‘Postures’ vase is crafted from matte white ceramic and boasts gentle curves.

Dr. Vranges Firenze’s Ginger Lime reed diffuser

At a time when traveling is on pause in many parts of the world, we are seeking more ways to enjoy it vicariously. Dr. Vranjes Firenze’s home-fragrance collection is created from favored aromas of the founder’s own globetrotting adventures, with the refreshing and enlivening ‘Ginger Lime’ diffuser evoking the sensation of sipping a caipirinha cocktail on a Brazilian beach.

Jia Jia’s crystal quartz cluster

It feels especially important right now to instil the calming effect of nature into our indoor spaces, and a little extra beauty at the same time. Jia Jia’s carefully sourced and completely unique crystal quartz clusters make a radiant addition to a desk or bedside table, for some serenity when it is needed most.
