Wrap It Up

In what can only be described as the Swiss Army knife of Italian furniture, the Melpot Sofa, designed by Mauro Lipparini, is a versatile, modular furniture system. Combined seating elements, poufs, bookcases and shelves make it the ideal pick for people who love to customize every single detail—and all of it can be reconfigured as and when you please. Choose from nearly two dozen configurations.

Sun Substitute

When you’re looking to make a statement from above, it’s tough to beat the Cilindro Eight Light Pendant. Made by artisans in Upstate New York, this drum shade light fixture has orange panels, eight bulbs and a lower diffuser that casts a warm glow. Bronze hardware adds style for a dramatic moment of illumination. At 84 inches wide, the bold design should make it a top contender for a place in your home.

Perfect Perch

Rest easy in the Kai Lounge Chair by Stanley Jay Friedman. Featuring two-toned metal, the chair is designed with cutting-edge digital technology. Its crescent-shaped backrest and ample upholstered seat are supported by a polished stainless steel and black powder coat frame, making it both classic and progressive. Available in any of Clive Daniel Home’s curated fabrics or leathers.

Super Bowl

Whether for purpose (to hold knickknacks near an entryway) or for looks, the brass Colmar Bowl, available through Kravet, makes a worthy centerpiece. With a silver patinated finish, the object ages nicely as it draws attention for its sculptural handles. The matte color makes it decidedly of-the-moment, too; place it on a display shelf with deep blues and greens—ideal color pairings for the metal.

Privacy, Please

A winner in the trend of privacy-enhancing furnishings that emerged during the pandemic, the Chill-Out High modular system by Tacchini Italia is the answer to seclusion in an open-concept world. With its 4-foot-tall padded back, each L-shaped seat can be paired with its corresponding side to create a sofa cocoon. Multiple sizes and upholsteries available.
