1. Flower Power Hundreds of fine stitches run from the centre of the microfibre Bloom chair by Kenneth Cobonpue (from $4,600) to mimic the look of a blossoming flower. Bloom Furniture Studio, Vancouver, bloomfurniturestudio.com 2. Around the World The Inoda and Inoda-Sveje IS Lounge Chair (from $1,660) is the product of a Milan-based Japanese-Danish design duo, and that global influence is clear—the efficient form and luxe materials (solid hardwood, natural-oiled leathers) would look right at home anywhere in the world. Kozai Modern, Vancouver, kozaimodern.com 3. Gold Standard This on-trend gold-and-white Jonathan Adler Futura Greek vase ($399) is pure Greek chic.

Up, Up and Away Hide extra seating in plain sight: with a simple flip of the backrest, the clever Prostoria Up-Lift armchair (from $2,300) transforms into a cushy bench seat for two. Ginger Jar Furniture, Vancouver, gingerjarinteriors.com 5. Wood Love The modular Revolve planters (from $300) by Vancouver’s Barter Design allow for plenty of stylistic experimentation, but whatever way you stack the red cedar plinths and concrete or terracotta pots, it’s sure to be a celebration of West Coast style. Provide, Vancouver, providehome.com; Kit, Calgary, kitinteriorobjects.com 6. Turn, Turn, Turn Though the Giralot storage system (from $2,940) may look playful—check out those colours!—the walnut or oak unit swivels 180 degrees off of the pivot post to offer seriously practical storage. Resource Furniture, Vancouver and Calgary, resourcefurniture.com 7. Life’s A Picnic What pairs best with a Sticks and Stones award-winning modern firepit? Their slick new indoor/outdoor Coastal table and benches ($5,500), of course, a collaboration with Live Edge Design that pairs reclaimed wood with a sleek, modern silhouette. Sticks and Stones, online, sticks-and-stones.ca 8. Bright Idea The curvy Plumen 002 bulb ($35) is the latest in the company’s line of light bulbs (the first is part of the MoMA’s permanent collection), which marries beauty and sustainability to create an energy-efficient design that shines.

Upper Crust It’s hard to improve on freshly baked bread, but the Emile Henry baguette baker ($130) ups the ante anyway by trapping steam within a Burgundy clay case, creating a perfectly crunchy crust every time.

Soap Box Good things come in hip packages if the Saskatch-ewan-made Northlore soaps ($12) are any indication. We love the earthy scents of these small-batch bars—think cedarwood and sage, or wild rose and mint—made from organic ingredients. Northlore, Saskatoon, northloregoods.com 11. Tray Chic Cult favourite Japanese brand Fog Linen Work merges its beloved textiles with polyester resin to create linen-coated trays (from $26) perfect for serving guests or just sitting pretty.
