With design trends leaning toward custom, bespoke and handcrafted, indulge in a well-made piece. For fall, designers have re-explored the trend in burnished metals and looked to the past for new inspiration.
Tory Burch’s collaboration with artist Dodie Thayer resulted in tableware reminiscent of the early 20th century work of British ceramics maker Clarice Cliff—sure to be a fun conversation starter at any table.
Taking cues from the fall fashion runways, darker colors and eccentric, country estate patterns and fabrics have crept into home design for that “I just inherited this piece from my great aunt” feeling. So, when shopping, cozy up to Loro Piana cashmere, warm to autumn brass and copper, commission a custom leather-wrapped chandelier—or opt for a fully customizable DIY one—and add a pop of autumn orange courtesy of Jonathan Adler. And remember, Hermès is always a good idea.
