Moody marble, throwback seating and gravity-defying lighting we love.

Pretty Please

Ikea collections to put on your radar for 2017: mod new Kungsbacka cabinets (matte black fronts made with recycled wood and covered in a veneer made from recycled bottles) and this Behaga dinnerware series of dreamy watercolour earthenware, (with pieces starting at a very accessible $3.50). Ikea, across the West,

Spring Fling

By design, EQ3’s new ceramic and sculptural Posey vases (from $10 to $13) appear to have taken a few cues from the working parts of industrial machinery, which is why they’re so covetable in contrasting delicate muted pastel hues. EQ3, Calgary,

The Throwback

With its futuristic metal frame, flag line and compulsory sheepskin shag, it’s hard to believe Hans J. Wegner’s Flag Halyard chair ($2,195) was originally designed in 1950—its lush texture screams ’70s. Now that the disco vibe is back, we’re going to see a lot more of this retro seat’s iterations, vintage and new. Rove Concepts, Vancouver,

Dark Side of the Moon

As our taste for richer interiors grows, so too does our hankering for darker-coloured marble. Caesarstone quartz in luxe chocolate browns like Caldera (front) and black-veined, beigey natural whites such as Himalayan Moon (behind) is on course to become the new norm (starts at $80 per square foot). Paragon Surfacing, Vancouver,


With a slim and precise saucer silhouette of concrete, the Foscarini Aplomb large light fixture ($1,435) appears to defy earth’s laws of physics and will entrance all who catch a glimpse. LightForm, across the West,

Float On

Looking for a way to make your bedroom space feel roomier? Opt for a floating bed, like this sleek German-engineered gravity-evader, Snooze ($8,615 for a queen), available in oak, cherry or walnut from Zeitraum. Shaun Ford and Co., Calgary,

Boom Box

For Danish company Vifa, engineering quality speakers is the only thing they do. The result? The Oslo portable speaker ($749), with its woven textile cover and minimalist design, is as sleek as your furniture. Plus, it’s going to go the dinner-party distance with 12 hours of battery life.
