A CLEAR WINNER
Lucite is sensationally surprising in a traditional space. This comfy stool (The Elk Group) is easy to incorporate into any home, but reupholster it in chartreuse velvet and you’ll have some serious punch! M.A. Simons • Lucite and Natural Linen Footstool • $375
COLOR AND FORM
Bold and modern companion paintings by artist Emily Ryan Smith will command a room. Living Well • Abstract Oil on Canvas • $1,700 each (or $3,000 for pair)
FEATHER YOUR NEST
This soft, textural work of art, known as an African Juju hat, or Bamiléké headdress, is a symbol of prosperity believed to combine the positive qualities of birds and the fragility of life. It is a costume piece worn by royal dancers during important tribal ceremonies, but it also looks fabulous mounted over a mantle or sofa. Living Well, Fairhope • Juju Hat • $300
AGAINST THE GRAIN
Burl wood lacquer chest (Worlds Away) with slim, modern legs and gold accents is a showstopper. Malouf Furniture Co • Hudson Gold Chest • $2,549
Faux leathers and skins made by Novel give high-traffic spaces a sense of chic. The fabrics feature exquisite detail but are completely wipeable. Try this print (Valkenburg Print in Porcelain) on an upholstered coffee table in the living room or a tufted bench with slim brass legs in an entryway. Lulu and Me Home • Faux Snakeskin fabric • $94 per yard
