Most Wanted: Global Perspective


World traveler and Chief Strategy + Innovation Officer of Ratana, Joanna Leung, shares what unique pieces make her feel at home

“The simplicity of design and construction in our new Lineas collection, which simply means ‘ lines’ in Spanish, is my favorite. The linear ropes create a 3D-like effect. My favorite piece from the collection is the highback chair as it creates a cocoon for you to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life.” – Lineas by RATANA

“I love to cook and I’m a little bit obsessed with collecting ceramics to plate my food. During my travels I spend a lot of time hunting for unique pieces to add to my tableware collection. I recently discovered Humble Ceramics, a women-owned ceramicist based out of L.A. I especially like the Stillness collection, as the colors and rustic design provide instant calm and transport you to the serene lavender fields in Provence.” – Stillness Bowl by HUMBLE CERAMICS

“I love the handmade Puzzle Table by my good friend Gulla Jonsdottir as it is literally a puzzle! Inspired by friends gathering, you can use it not only as a coffee table but also as separate individual tables. This makes the table stunning visually, practical and versatile.” – Puzzle Table by GULLA JONSDOTTIR

“Our family is nomadic, having lived in Vancouver, New York, Geneva, London, Miami and Hong Kong. I fell in love with Martha Sturdy’s work because of our mutual connection with the Pacific Northwest. I always have a piece by her to remind me of home.” – Charred Cedar Bench by MARTHA STURDY

“I’m currently coveting the Alabaster Totem 3 lamp by Allied Maker who make everything out of their Long Island studio. I love the extreme contrast of the lamp when it’s on and off. When it’s lit, it exudes warmth through the beautiful natural stone and when off, its cold natural stone looks more like a sculpture than a lamp.” – Alabaster Totem 3 Table Lamp by ALLIED MAKER

“My husband and I are mid-century furniture buffs and love hunting for vintage pieces during our travels. The Little Petra lounge chair was always unattainable as only 30 pieces were produced in the 1930s! Thanks to & Tradition, it is available in the shearling fabric, which I love since it wraps around you like a warm blanket for ultimate comfort and style!”
