1. A timeless design encased in a modern microfiber fabric makes the Amalfi as flexible as your lifestyle and as welcoming as your home. This neutral sofa poised gracefully upon narrow wooden legs can hold its own in any space, offering added comfort without sacrificing polish. 4living; 4livingfurniture.ca

2. The Prop Light by Bertjan Pot for Moooi is simultaneously straightforward and forward-thinking. Available in round and square designs, these slim fixtures can be hung at any height or angle, propped against the wall, or placed on the floor. Pot claims they make the perfect lighting solution for any interior—we’re inclined to agree. Robert Sweep Homefurnishings Inc.; robertsweep.com

3. An aptitude for high school math is not required to love these Kaleido geometric nesting trays by Hay of Denmark. The colourful quadrilateral and hexagonal platters won’t inspire dreaded nostalgia for long, once they help to relieve the stress of a dinner party or two and keep your kitchen tidy. KIT Interior Objects; kitinteriorobjects.com

4. There isn’t a more inviting sight than the Artifort Tulip lounge chair. Inspired by spreading flower petals, this Pierre Paulin design dates back to 1965. With a stately high back, elegant metal cross-base (swivel or non-swivel options available) and crucially comfortable shape, the retro piece has deservedly reclaimed its former glory. Gabriel Ross; grshop.com

5. The cylindrical black shade atop the Liam table lamp offers balance to the textured chaos of its modern brushed brass base. Also available in a full length floor lamp version and with a white or black shade, this eye-catching fixture does double duty adding light and interest to your space. Bespoke; bespokedesign.ca

6. Black orchid, garland, magnolia, clover; the Michael Aram Signature Home Scents are inspired by the same organic motifs that first made the artist famous. The collection’s dynamic floral fragrances, simultaneously subtle and exuberant, promise to add a rich,
warm ambiance to any room. Mint Interiors; mintinteriors.ca

7. The super-cool Nendo daybed has a secret weapon: versatility. Its streamlined design slides effortlessly into any space, providing the perfect spot to curl up with a book and a cup of tea. Or add a few pillows and blankets and watch it transform into a cozy (but ever-sleek) overnight bed. BoConcept; boconcept.ca

8. Kohler’s Moxie® Showerhead and Wireless Speaker allows music-lovers to safely listen to their favourite music both inside and outside of the shower. This portable, water-resistant speaker system syncs with all of your Bluetooth-enabled devices and is easily removable from the showerhead for recharging. Robinson Lighting & Bath Centre; rlrbc.com

9. Add a touch of whimsy, romance and decorative flair to your home with delicate door and cabinet hardware from Rocky Mountain Hardware. The Paris Collection features eleven pieces reminiscent of 17th and 18th century France, created by renowned hospitality designer Roger Thomas. Banbury Lane Design Centre; banburylane.com

10. This sculpted root console table is a stunning example of nature’s handiwork. The contrast between rough and smooth surfaces has been enhanced and the detail of intertwining roots enriched, resulting in a more visually striking and element-enduring piece that brings outdoor beauty inside. Muse & Merchant; museandmerchant.com

11. An exposed brass structure sets the bar high for this angular design. The Calaf chair by Bruno Moinard removes the exclusivity from luxury and leisure, proving there is a best of both worlds. That leaves the more appealing choices to you: leather or fabric upholstery? Golden, medium or dark patina finish? Bloom; bloomfurniturestudio.com

12. Culti has transformed a simple concept into a sensory-rich experience. An ingenious process evenly diffuses these fragrances, carefully extracted from natural ingredients, so that they live and breathe with the rituals and rhythms of each customer. The result is a unique olfactory experience that incorporates mind and body. Robert Sweep Homefurnishings Inc.; robertsweep.com

13. The clean, contemporary aesthetic of the Natuzzi Re-vive provides peace of mind, while its seamless technology handles the rest. The leather recliner moves as you do, shifting between positions to support your natural movement while providing a relaxing rocking motion. Put your feet up to feel truly refreshed and rejuvenated. Inspiration; inspirationfurniture.ca

14. Bring the beauty of B.C.’s great outdoors into the comfort of your home with an assortment of rock pillows from Paboom. Modelled after real stones from the West Coast’s beautiful shores, their unexpectedly soft texture will inspire the same soothing relaxation as an evening stroll along the beach. Paboom Home Imports Ltd.; paboom.com

15. They say don’t judge a sofa by its slipcover—unless the slipcover is a breeze to wash, a cinch to assemble and comes in 300 stylish fabrics. It doesn’t hurt that the sofa is built to last a lifetime, features cloud-like comfort and can be shipped throughout Canada for free. Insideout Homestore; insideoutvictoria.com
