Woven pillows, velvet sofas and chic side tables we're coveting.
Curved-in, cocoon-like armrests and soft-to-the-touch plush cushions envelop all who sit here; the inviting yet structured Vuelta sofa ($9,680) by Wittmann is what happens when a hug takes furniture form. Avenue Road, Vancouver, avenue-road.com
For the amount of time we spend peering into their depths, hoping for an outfit to manifest, closets and their hooked counterparts have gone far too long without an update like this: ditch the plastic pronto for Menu’s sleek Ava clothes hanger ($42) in black powdercoated steel and brass. Gabriel Ross, Victoria, grshop.com; Vancouver Special, Vancouver, vanspecial.com
While a peacock chair might look too boho glam for some modern interiors, the Made Goods Saffron mirror ($2,290) with its kindred Spirograph weave is the perfect bridge between past and present. Peridot, Langley, peridotdecorativehomewear.ca
Our love affair with flirty pastels on masculine metals continues. Powder-coated steel loops under a bell-style shade bring the delicate blush Perimeter table lamp ($390) to life on any desk or side table. Design House, Vancouver, designhouse.com
Have you ever tried to balance drinks on a serving tray? Place a glass outside the central zone of safety and you’re done for. That’s why the handmade Mezzo side table ($2,700) from Sholto Design Studio is so cheeky. The solid wood raindrop-inspired base acts as a sturdy counterweight, making it deceptively stable. Brass tops are also covered in removable pieces of full-grain leather. Suquet Interiors, Vancouver, suquetinteriors.com
The monochromatic harmony of mismatched geometric motifs on these handwoven African mud cloth pillow covers (from $109) adds interest, but won’t overwhelm—and each is naturally dyed with river mud, a centuries-old West African tradition. Restoration Hardware, Vancouver, restorationhardware.com
