As the sun (tentatively) starts to shine again in the west, so do this season’s most stylish homewares. The spring refresh is real: soothing colours and minimalist designs are frequent on this list, but you’ll find the odd bold-and-beautiful statement piece too (we’re looking at you, Dhala table lamp).

Editor’s Pick

Novah Lift Desk from EQ3, from $1,049

For many of us, that temporary #workfromhome situation is now a permanent hybrid, two years later. And yet I still haven€™t properly set up my home office with something that€™s a little more ergonomically inclined. And so my eyes lit up when I saw EQ3€™s Novah Lift desk. With its clean-lined design, simple standing lift mechanism and integrated keyboard tray (why do all desks forget about that all-important component?), I'll be keeping my back (and my Apple Watch!) happy for years to come. €”Anicka Quin, editorial director

A Funky Sofa

The Bombom 5-seat sofa ($15,770) from Roche Bobois has a playful, organic shape, but the fun doesn€™t stop there€”you can customize each individual row of colour. we're digging this purple scheme in honour of Pantone€™s 2022 colour of the year, Very Peri.

IS FUNKY NOT YOUR THING? Try These Minimalist, Scandi-cool Picks

Minimalist Nesting Tables

The Odeon coffee table ($1,250) and end table ($595) mix soft curves with hard lines: it€™s minimalism with attitude available as a nesting pair.

An Out-of-This-World Table Lamp

It€™s not surprising that the Dhala portable table lamp ($2,274) is part of a collection called €œSpace Invaders€€”this rechargeable version made of powder-coated steel and Murano glass is as tech-forward as it is stylish.

A Sleek, Modern Credenza

It€™s contrast central in the Baxter low credenza ($8,750)€”walnut and blackened oak complement each other beautifully. The low frame makes this piece a perfect TV console, and the four roomy cabinets within can conceal board games, electronics and other living room essentials.

Nature Print Pillows

we're digging the pine and ginkgo designs on these pillow covers ($45 each) from Foo Hung Curios. Part proceeds from the covers (and everything in store) benefit the Chinatown Storytelling Centre, a new educational and cultural hub in Vancouver.

A Super Serene Duvet

Channel chill springtime vibes with this Vancouver-designed Mineral Check duvet ($435 for a queen). The 100-percent European stonewashed linen weave has a relaxed, luxurious texture and the grey-green pattern is ultra-soothing.

A Magic Mirror

Aquarelle graphics make the Studio Roso long mirror ($1,270) more than a reflective surface: it€™s a totally mesmerizing art piece. No two of these hand-painted steel plates are exactly alike.

A Party-Ready Bar Cart

After years of closed doors, it€™s time to embrace every opportunity to entertain€”and Dometic€™s MoBar 300 ($2,969) is ready for the challenge. This heavy-duty but sleek mobile bar cart has a fridge that can hold up to 19 bottles or 70 cans (that€™s inside€”on top, you can fit 22 cans or 32 bottles in the ice bucket). It€™s up for your Easter dinner, dog€™s half-birthday party, etc.

A Pretty Play Kitchen

We’re celebrating kitchens in our March/April issue, so it€™s fitting we€™d highlight a modern design for the tiniest cooks. The Midmini wooden play kitchen ($680) is finished with hard-wax oils and water-based eco paints; teddy bears are calling it the hottest lunch spot in the rec room.

A Stylish Coffee Table Book

Two dozen blacksmiths, welders and other metal artists from B.C.'s southwest coastline are profiled in Out of the Fire: Metalworkers along the Salish Sea ($40). This fresh book also exhibits striking photographs of the artists in action (and yes€”sparks fly).

A Cozy Swivel Chair

The Sigrid swivel chair ($2,835) is coziness from every angle: the turning mechanism is totally hidden, and the faux lamb shearling cover is like a warm hug. Ideal for cuddling up with a book (but no guarantees you won't fall asleep).
