A throw blanket is the simplest way to infuse a dose of luxury into your everyday milieu. Not only does a throw help to articulate your sense of personal style, it also provides the perfect accoutrement to accessorize a nap or cool evening. Whether you enjoy more reticent and refined iterations like this Cashmere Baja Graded Blanket from James Perse, which is rendered entirely in rich cashmere, or prefer fun and dynamic patterns like Missoni Home’s multicolor, macro-stripe Funny Blanket, unmistakable design prowess and superb materiality anchor this essential furnishing element.


From minimalists to maximalists, throw pillows are the ultimate way to instantly impart a touch of your personal design aesthetic into your living environment. This Rabat Cushion from Missoni Home, for its part, possesses its appeal through the storied craftsmanship of the legendary Italian brand and its iconic, black-ribbed fabric. With its velvety façade, it can be paired with other materials and motifs for a dynamic home edit that is sure to draw the eye. Citizenry’s Demi Mud Cloth Pillow, for its part, works as a piece of modern art in any space. Meticulously hand-painted design and a minimal palette combine in this graphic pillow that will undoubtedly turn heads wherever you throw it.


It’s all in the details, and whether its sleek and sophisticated barware or divine candles, consider adorning your space with the very best options on the market. Kelly Wearstler’s Acolyte Ice Pail is expertly adorned with natural bronze handles cast from hand-picked pyrite stone. Wearstler’s love of home entertaining essentials inspired this contrasting black and white ice bucket, which is hand-sculpted from Nero Marquina and White Calacatta marble – a striking combination that is guaranteed to turn drinks in anyone’s home into a hyper-luxurious experience. When it comes to essential scents, Fornasetti’s candles fuse wittiness with refinement in a surrealist-inspired packaging that culminates in its Architettura Candle. A duochrome palette anchored by black and white stripes pervades this candle, which features a single wick and notes of thyme, lavender, cedar wood, orris, Tolu balsam, incense, and birch.

Wallcoverings And Fabrics

Popping up everywhere, from bathroom walls to kitchen ceilings, wallpaper has officially made a comeback. The beauty of a carefully-chosen wallcovering is that it allows you to infuse a touch of individuality into your living space — whether you opt for a subtle pattern or a bold, geometric design. This Appia Charcoal iteration from Jim Thompson remarkably showcases a mid-century-inspired geometric jacquard. Like the “great road of ancient times,” this fabric melds dynamism with innovation for a distinctly sublime finish. Dedar Milano’s Ray Col.1 Pietra, for its part, features more traditional black and white stripes, and relies on classic interior decoration cues and coordinating warm tones to add a dose of refinement to any space.
