Art with Faces

Pass on photo gallery walls for captivating art pieces that showcase faces. Opt for a look that speaks volumes like this Leslie Weaver acrylic painting. Art with faces: next level selfies $150

“More is more! After years of restrained minimalism, rich, layered and exuberantly collected looks are becoming all the rage. Say help to Maximalism.” – Anna Brockway

Feel free to lean into opulence and pieces that might feel over-the-top. It’s a thing. Outfit your place with a pair of Hollywood Regency Trompe Side Chairs and get lost in the extraness of it all. $1595

Year Round Wicker

“Wicker is having a moment! Shoppers are gaga for skirted wicker tables, lampshades and lighting, especially when animal inspired.” – Anna Brockway

This natural fabric is not just for sundrenched days and lounging. Pieces akin to the Wicker Globe Pendant Light prove that this look extends into the cold months as well as it brightens things up and adds an approachable element to any space. $468

Curvy Furniture

“Curvy is beautiful! 70s-inspired silhouettes deliver style for miles.” – Anna Brockway

Shop bold, unapologetic styles like the Eero Saarinen for Knoll Womb Chair. The bight red is matched with a sexy chrome frame for a feeling that is all at once vintage and on-trend taking your Mid-Century styling to the next level. $2800

“Animal-inspired furnishings bring a much needed dose of wit and surprise to spaces. Meow!” – Anna Brockway

Pets are great, but so is animal-inspired furniture. Opt for pieces like the Vintage Sheep Sculpture or Bench inspired by Lalanne. It’s covered with real sheep’s fur and features horns. $3850

Lampshades with Character

“We’re seeing strong interest in pleated, patterned and even wicker lampshades. This is a great way to get a sophisticated, “decorator” look and bring freshness to existing lighting pieces.” – Anna Brockway

Think pleats, think bold. Think a gathered lampshade that tells a story like this designed from a vintage silk sari. Handcrafted and casting a gorgeous flood of light, something like this adds depth and welcomed character to your space. $160

“An under-the-radar trend, busts deliver neoclassical gravitas and are smashing juxtaposed to just about anything. Big sellers!”- Anna Brockway

The bust is back--in a big way. This classic touch is welcomed back into homes for a bit of mystery, history, charm and Old World elegance. Pick something that inspires like a French Antique Bust of David after Michelangelo. $750
