Black accents are the new home staple.
Our associate art director just came back from a photoshoot raving about these Finell Silicone placemats that were on set—they are the coolest! They have an edgy, 3D geometric design that’s aggressively textured, but done so to a level height so you can place your drink down without it tipping over. And you can fit the edges of placemats together like puzzle pieces and make a table runner. Swoon. ($110 for two) atkinsonsofvancouver.com
Shelving doesn’t always get the opportunity to show off, so we appreciate the triangle-shaped, dark iron, A-Frame Shelf which delivers on emerging big trends like geometric, Scandinavian and ebony accents all at once ($129). cb2.com
Made from reassembled pieces of vintage lamps, the Reade Table Lamp from the Tribeca series is inspired by the New York City glamour of the late 1930s ($279 to $359). nineteenten.ca
Thick black brushstrokes on these Normann-Copenhagen vases add a unique, painterly touch and show off one of 2016’s hottest ‘colour’ combos: white and black ($44 to $135). espacedonline.com
