Introducing Western Living’s 2023 Designers of the Year Award Winners
Cozy handmade throws, funky table lights and other new and notable picks for your home.
It’s February already! 2022 has come in hot with the homewares: the furniture and accessories of the season embrace both the cozy and the bold. From a psychedelic side table to a serene modular sofa (plus a pick from our new favourite Salt Spring Island maker), here is the best of the month.
Twill throw from BiIly Rose Woolen Goods, $270billyrosewoolengoods.com
Sometimes it feels like learning how to knit, making some kind of pathetic rhombus-shaped washcloth and then giving up entirely is a universal experience. But, obviously, there are talented fibre artists doing the good work for all of us less-yarn-inclined folks. One of those artists is Billy Rose Weisbrich, who learned to knit at age nine and now hand weaves wool blankets out of Salt Spring Island. Weisbrich's work is all about the natural: in fact, most of the yarns they use arent dyed. But that doesn't mean that the designs are plainchevron patterns, stripes and ombré geometry are expertly woven into these gorgeous, cozy goods. Alyssa Hirose, assistant editor
we're loving all the whimsy in the Echo table light ($725) from Tala. The two intersecting solid steel cylinders are each topped with a dimmable blown glass bulb for ultimate ambiance control. lightformshop.com
Molteni's Marteen sofa (price on request) is a sectional spectacular. It is seating and storage all in one, and there are literally hundreds of upholstery options to choose fromcanvas, linen, velvet, you name it. You'll never lose the remote again. livingspace.com
Edmonton-based Poppy Barley recently expanded from fashion to homewares, and their new line includes functional zippered pouches, catch-all trays and these chic curvilinear table setters ($88 for a pack of 2). The placemats, and all other products, are made from leather certified by international nonprofit Leather Working Group, an organization that audits tanneries for environmental performance. poppybarley.com
This trippy little cube, called the Terning side table ($1,249), is crafted from ethically sourced black resin and white camel bone. It's hardy, bold and totally mesmerizing. moeshome.com
Vancouver startup furniture brand Edits made the journey all the way to Belgium's Please, Have a Seat trade show last fall to exhibit the Circus chair ($899 U.S.), a Scandi-cool piece made of European ash. The designers keep a stock of neutral colours, plus classic rainbow hues: green, yellow, red and blue. editsdesign.com
This statement-making coffee table is the latest collaboration between solid wood furniture makers Lock and Mortice and home decor store Provide, both based in Vancouver. Made of white oak (with a blackened finish), the Provide Series round coffee table ($8,750) is an asymmetrical beauty. providehome.com
Rove Concepts Angelo bed ($2,749) is a lesson in understated luxury: the upholstery-wrapped headboard is made of three massive framed panels, but the monochrome palette keeps it from being too showy. Would it be cliché to say that this is where the magic happens? roveconcepts.com
