Floor Routine

Rizzy Home’s Connie Post carpet collection (from $990) is all about colour. The hand-tufted, hand-cut carpets are constructed with both cut pile and fine loop wool, so there’s plenty of depth in the rainbow. bannercarpets.ca

Stop and Go

The Hexa table (from $4,160) can be a coffee or end table, depending on its orientation. There’s no need for certainty in these uncertain times (but you do have to choose between oak and walnut). resourcefurniture.com

Local Lounger

Egypt-born, Canada-raised designer Karim Rashid dreamed up the Chelsea sofa (from $7,759) using inspiration from his New York City neighbourhood of the same name. The cloudlike cotton is practically begging to be napped on. boconcept.ca

All Together

We’re a little jealous of how close and cozy the five funky rings in the Unity pendant ($2,550) are, but the stainless steel and brushed champagne finish is a bright reminder of more intimate connection. savemoreplumbing.com

Sky’s the Linen

It isn’t easy to get a good night’s sleep, but Sömn Home is wicking a few worries away with the Linen Essential set (from $420 for a queen). It’s made from 100-percent natural European linen, stonewashed for softness, and regulates body temperature naturally. somnhome.com

Fruit Basket

Cut a mango into squares, turn it inside out and what do you get? A sweet snack, and also inspiration for the Mango chair and stool (from $2,495) by Wendelbo. It’s versatile, comfy and (thankfully) seedless. fullhousemodern.com

Table Turnaround

Autonomous Furniture’s Jack table ($3,000) was crafted with pandemic-era purpose in mind. Designer Kirk Van Ludwig created the ashwood piece for the new everyday (think conference calls, schoolwork and takeout dinners) and did so quickly—from thought to table, it only took four weeks. autonomousfurniture.com

Light Weight

The cord-free Luxciole lamp by Hisle (from $780) can easily light up any space, large or small. The sleek design is available in two sizes and in gold or black, and fits right in on the nightstand or on the patio. atkinsonsofvancouver.com

High Hopes

You’d have to look up—way up—to find the marble that makes Miniforms’ Chap tables (from $3,625)—and you’d also have to be in Italy. Palladio Moro is extracted from a quarry in Verona that sits 800 metres above sea level, and the one-of-a-kind pattern is packed with personality. broughaminteriors.com

Editor's Pick

No.1 Butterfly Stool by Ette Objects, $650
etteobjects.com

The symmetrical sides and centre “spine” of this mahogany stool by Vancouver-based designer Kate Richard were inspired by a butterfly—but that’s not where the insect connection ends. This elegant object is finished with beeswax that comes from Hives for Humanity, a local nonprofit that supports social and environmental justice. These are difficult times we’re living in, but having furniture that does good both inside and out makes sheltering in place a little easier. Alyssa Hirose,  assistant editor
