Divide and Conquer

These suspended and standing room dividers from BuzziFalls (from $1,248) are designed both to create privacy and to control sound (good for busy COVID-era spaces). The recycled felt hangings diffuse, attenuate and absorb sounds like ringtones, typing and chatty colleagues—or, in our case, family members. objectivespace.com

xStory Arc

The arched shape of Leanne Ford’s Anne storage cabinet ($2,699) highlights the grain of its white oak bentwood poles; inside are three shelves, one fixed and two adjustable. For a darker aesthetic, it’s also available in charcoal. crateandbarrel.ca

xTo Infinity

Foscarini just launched the telescope-inspired Palomar lamp (from $1,398) virtually, and it will likely be the star of any room (sorry, we had to). This sleek light projects an intense brilliance upwards and a gentle glow downwards. informinteriors.com

xRough Go

These unglazed black ribbed bud vases ($44 each) will add a little tactile to your table—for a long time. They’re handmade in ceramicist Tanvi Arora’s Vancouver studio and fired at 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. nineteenten.ca

xBoxed Blend

The Timber table from Gus* Modern ($275) mimics a wood’s natural grain, but its near-transparent acrylic camouflages into surrounding spaces. Plus, it’s open on one side, so it can double as storage space. omgitssmall.com

xWiggle Room

Find a home for bright florals in the Air vase (from $50). Its glazed interior, wax-painted finish and pop of pattern make it the ideal vessel for keeping a bit of the outdoors in. eq3.com

xBlock Party

Kids don’t normally see the fun in sleek storage solutions, but Ikea’s Bygglek collaboration with Lego (from $16) is just as practical as it is playful. Each box is outfitted with Lego studs, making cleanup basically part of the game. ikea.ca

xOn the Edge

Just like trees themselves, no two of the Metro tables (price upon request) by Live Edge Design—made in Duncan, B.C.—are the same. You can customize the size and finish: besides always having a wood top and metal base, the sky (or the forest?) is the limit. broughaminteriors.com

xDune That

The 100-percent-wool Ridge rug (from $1,119) captures the beauty of the desert—no sand required. Unique yet subdued, its conspicuous texture is inspired by lines of sand blown in the wind. boconcept.com

xWick Away

These cherry candlesticks ($90 for set of two), hand-carved by Vancouver designer Elise McLauchlan, are perfect for keeping cozy rooms aglow. providehome.com

Melting Mug from Studio Arhoj
$38, shop.vanspecial.com

We’re going to need a lot of coffee to get us through these bleak winter months. I’m not really picky when it comes to my beans—I’m more of a quantity-over-quality, pot-a-day kinda gal—but when it comes to the mug I’m sipping from, I insist that it delivers me both caffeine and joy. This hand-cast Melting Mug from Studio Arhoj, shaped like a traditional Japanese yunomi teacup and looking both playful and pretty with its contrasting drip glaze, will do quite nicely.
