When was the last time a kitchen faucet stopped you in your tracks? The new Regulator will. One of the stars of the recently introduced Waterworks Kitchen collection, the elegantly curving fixture—available in single- or double-spout options, and in a variety of finishes ranging from burnished nickel to unlacquered brass—was inspired by industrial boiler rooms of the early 20th century. A rotating level controls water temperature; the handheld spray and on-off wheel are clad in an ultrachic matte black. You’ll never look at your sink the same way again.
With its signature look—soothingly abstract patterns in an array of cosmic hues—Brooklyn design studio Eskayel has become a home-decor go-to for those with a contemporary, nature-focused sensibility. After producing everything from wallpaper and rugs to pillows and archival prints, it was only a matter of time before the brand made a further foray into furniture. All it took was for founder Shanan Campanaro to find the right partner: fellow Brooklyn designer Andrew Berman of Dane Co. The results—a dining table, a coffee table, and a clean-lined sling chair—combine traditional craftsmanship with otherworldly appeal. Handsome maple or ash-wood frames provide the striking juxtaposition to the two new patterns Campanaro designed exclusively for the collaboration. Here’s hoping this pair has more in the works. —Sarah Storms
When it comes to decking out your home for the season, sometimes the old axiom less is more proves to be the best strategy of all. No need for miles of multicolored lights or elaborately staged displays: instead, we’re taking our cues from Terrain and this pared-down reimagining of classic Yuletide trimmings, featuring the company’s current collection of handcrafted wreaths. Ranging from circlets of bay and olive leaves to myrtle and pine—and even bleached eucalyptus—these festive staples look fabulous unadorned and displayed en masse suspended from bright red ribbon. High impact, low effort: our kind of holiday idea.—Sarah Jean Shelton
Imagine having a personal design curator who not only scours the market for the very latest must-have but also sends it to your door every month. Even better, let’s say your chic decor item—or kitchen utensil, or fashion accessory—remains a surprise until the moment you open it. Enter Not Another Bill, the ultimate subscription service for lovers of artful objets. The brainchild of Ned Corbett-Winder, a former art director at British ad agency M&C Saatchi, the monthly delivery functions like a Birchbox for style aficionados: users indicate their tastes, then sit back and wait for an exquisitely wrapped package to arrive in the mail with their newest treasure. The company collaborates with beloved brands such as Baggu, Ferm Living, and Tom Dixon (as well as smaller, up-and-coming makers) to create items exclusive to subscribers—ombré tea towels, etched-horn money clips, whimsical botanical prints, and marbleized rolling pins, to name a few. It’s a Lonny dream lineup. —SS
