The Fashionable Home

By Babs Rodriguez

From timeless pieces and well-constructed classics to artful trends, the leap between our wardrobe wants and our home-furnishings wishes is not a big one. It’s all about a good fit that makes us smile. Comfortable, cozy, textural, adaptable? Check. A flash of metallic? Where appropriate. Of course, there’s always room for a showstopper. As for colors, camel to copper are neutral in our book, but should an amped-up blood orange — joined by our roundup of noir decor on Page 40 — seem to be a seasonal nod, well, tricks can be treats.

The Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection showcases fine, functional and portable furniture. Extra seating has never been so elegant. A work of art, the ash wood-framed Concertina Chair from Raw-Edges designers Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay fans leather petals into a graceful seat or folds flat for transport, $20,500. Order online for delivery or in-store pick-up at select locations, us.louisvuitton.com.

Handwoven Rattan Pumpkins have the texture and weave we love in a good sweater, $29.50-$39.50, Pottery Barn.

Like a cashmere hoodie, the Cooper Chaise with its huggy barrel back is equally at home in intimate spaces or living rooms. Available in 300 fabrics/leathers, it is shown here in Vivid Blood Orange, $3,080, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.

With brass hardware and hand-stitched leather, the Riley Leather Hurricane has the classic elegance and good looks of the Ralph Lauren Tiffin handbag. They’ll brighten a porch buffet or living room hearth, $695-$995. Online only at ralphlauren.com.
