Check out these 10 statement-making showpieces to personalize your living space.

As iconic interior designer Dorothy Draper once said, “I’ll always put in one controversial item, it makes people talk.” Life should never be too serious and we suggest you let your home reflect that care-free, whimsical energy. Quirky household items instill personality and whether you’re a gnome fanatic or classic Andy Warhol appreciator, you should include these showpieces to broadcast your unique sense of style.After our May issue featured the stunning Studio A Hands Stool in a Kevin Mitchell designed bathroom, it sent us down the quirk-inspired path. The idiosyncratic energy the piece adds to the space was all the catalyst we needed to feature more oddball, aspirational pieces for your homes.headerHere are a few of our favourite accessories to get the conversation rolling:Bourgie Kartell’s Bourgie ($439) lamp is all about class (minus the revolution) and offers illumination alongside animated colours and contrasting geometric designs. kartell.comHorse in WonderlandEccentric-chic, the Horse in Wonderland ($120) candlestick from Nineteen Ten can take you on a new-world adventure but this time without the cake or cordial. nineteenten.caGummy Night LightWhether or not you’re scared of the dark (we won’t tell if you are), Walrus has you covered with the cuddly Gummy Night Light ($37) that  turns on with a tummy squeeze. walrushome.comNine Goldfish ClockThere’s plenty of fish in the sea but stand out from the rest with Anthropologie’s  Nine Goldfish Clock ($178), a statement making wall piece any time of the day. anthropologie.comBrave New World LampMoooi’s Brave New World Lamp ($5,110 and $10,200) represents cutting-edge design (without Aldous Huxley’s revolutionary ideals). moooi.comFlying CarpetTake off on an adventure with Nanimarquina’s  Flying Carpet (Carpets for $2,011 and $5, 751, wedges for $622 and $1,631), a comfortable and enterprising substitution for a couch or chaise. nanimarquina.comPendant Twisted Cord SetSpunk up your space with lighting pieces like Nineteen Ten’s Pendant Twisted Cord Set ($40). nineteenten.camghsgfhAdd bright, energetic pieces like the New Antique Barstool ($460 and $490) from Moooi to show off your unpredictable and adventurous side. moooi.comTable TilesBoast your distinctive taste for home decor with these Table Tiles ($15) from Areaware, a conversation starter and creative game for friends and family. areaware.comgshfsgThe Wyzer ($99) wall clock from Leff Amsterdam exposes a careless and aspiration side where time doesn’t control your lifestyle.
