Sweet Seat Good news for the design-loving lone wolf: the beloved Ruché sofa from Ligne Roset now has an armchair counterpart (from $3,911) that’s perfect for solo sitting. The asymmetrical frame design is more than just quirky—the elastic-webbed suspension and low armrest allow for multiple angles at which to get comfortable.

Pure Evil Beautiful Things

 

Pretty in Punk London street artist Pure Evil teams up with bastion of civility Royal Doulton for a strange—and strangely wonderful—limited-edition collaboration of dishware (pieces from $28) that brings graffiti-chic images of neon butterflies, weeping divas and shadowy rabbits to the dinner table. Royal Doulton Store, Calgary, wwrd.com; Waterford Wedgwood Royal Doulton, Edmonton, wwrd.com

Spring Has Sprung No green thumb required to make the FontanaArte Blom lamp ($247) blossom. Shift the aluminum petals—in seasonal shades like springy green, cheery yellow or cardinal red—around the axis of the tulip-inspired table light to diffuse the light whichever way you please.

1Face- Pink 2, Breast Cancer- $50

Watch This Wear your heart on your sleeve (well, your wrist) with the sleek 1:Face watch ($50). The minimalist silicone pieces come in eight different colours, each associated with a different cause—wear the sunshine yellow number to help build schools in Guatemala or the carbon black strap to contribute to cancer research—so you can do good while looking good. 1:Face Watch, online, 1facewatch.ca

Bathing Beauties The key to spicing up a neutral is a little bit of texture, but we don’t need to tell Style at Home that, apparently. The mag’s new decor line decks out powder room basics—a toothbrush holder, soap pump and the like (from $15)—with a debossed surface for a subtle dose of sophistication. Sears, across the West, sears.ca

To The Letter  Monogram your front hall with a golden neon serif A, or create a not-so-secret message from the medley of brash, beautiful fonts that make up the Graphic collection from Delightfull (from $4,813). Whatever you spell, the letters of this bold, bulb-bedazzled alphabet stand three feet tall, so your message will come through loud and clear. Lightform, Calgary and Edmonton, lightform.ca
