Light Fantastic

The French designer Éric de Dormaël’s captivating light pendants are crafted to transcend mere illumination — they’re light-emitting sculptures. Defined by fluidity, ethereality and transparency, Dormaël’s DCW Editions Broche Medium Pendant light orchestrates a delicate interplay of light and shadow, transforming any interior space into an immersive realm where light becomes a living, dynamic medium. $19,920.

Dining in

Buying the right dining table requires a lot of consideration. Does it play nicely with the rest of the interior? Is it solidly crafted? Will it bring people together, fuel conversation, cement old bonds and forge new ones? Crafted by Totem Road’s in-house designer Francesco Feliziani, the Ostara dining table promises all this while seamlessly blending thoughtfully chosen materials, organic shapes and a neutral palette. With its elegant travertine top and solid FSC-certified oak base, it strikes a balance between softness and structure. From $4,995.

Perfectly Imperfect

Crafted by Bernardaud and embracing imperfection, the Kintsugi Vase is a tribute to the philosophy of wabi-sabi and the art of kintsugi, the Japanese tradition of mending broken ceramics with lacquer or resin mixed with powdered gold, silver or pearl, creating glimmering fissures that redefine beauty. The vase embodies the belief that the history of a piece is evident in its fractures; an expression of resilience and metamorphosis. Approximately $34,443.

Love Seat

With its hairpin legs and heart-shaped backrest, the French designer Mathieu Matégot’s Metal Heart Chair in Green is the sweetest addition to any outdoor or living room mise en scène. A hallmark of Matégot’s design oeuvre, the 1950s-era chair features a tubular steel frame and his famous perforated seat, and is available to purchase through Sydney-based interior design star Tamsin Johnson’s curated inventory collection. Price on request.

Cabinet Reshuffle

It’s not often a side cabinet commands all the attention in a room, but Koket’s high-gloss Spellbound Peacock Feather Cabinet wasn’t designed to be a wallflower. Adorned in a unique metal floral lace that looks as if it’s growing across the body of the cabinet, it opens to reveal four drawers — each decorated with organic-shaped hardware — and a finish that mirrors the exterior. Purchase at your own risk: Spellbound is suitable only for those willing to surrender stardom to a piece of furniture. Price on request.

American Beauty

The Brooklyn, New York-based industrial designer Jason Miller creates lighting, furniture, accessories and interiors inspired by contemporary American culture, interpreting the everyday through luxe materials and artful forms. Miller’s Gates sofa, conceived for De La Espada and crafted in Portugal, melds a modern design sensibility with the classic appeal of American craftsmanship. Featuring a luxuriously tufted backrest and sleek bronze legs, the Gates sofa brings the best of style and comfort to your living space. $21,308.
