Vastu Aromatherapy Sprays by Sara Bengur

Vastu Room Sprays, $72 each.

“Besides being a phenomenal designer who understood global design pretty much before anyone else, Sara has soul! It comes as no surprise that she is an expert in the art of Vastu, a spiritual way of thinking about design that has roots in India and possibly predates Feng Shui. Now, she’s introduced room sprays that help the cause of creating inner peace and wellness, too! ‘It’s like acupuncture for the home,’ she says—and I’ve become a complete devotee!” – Dara Caponigro, Editor in Chief

OKA x Cabana

“I’m a long-time admirer of Cabana Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Martina Mondadori, and her maximalist, Old-World sensibility that’s infused with the perfect amount of cool bohemian spirit. She’s inspired a whole new generation of style makers to want to live just like her (minus, of course, the Renzo Mongiardino–decorated home—lucky her!). So, naturally, I’m swooning over the new Oka x Cabana Magazine lighting collection. It starts with a classic turned-wood lamp base in four, very Cabana-inspired colors with a choice of eight fabric or paper patterned lampshades. I think Renzo would approve, too!” – Eugenia Santiesteban Soto, Design and Decoration Director

Henry Chronos Collection by Waterworks

“The Henry Chronos collection, is an update on The Henry collection—one of my favorite Waterworks collections ever. For me, bathroom hardware should look and feel sturdy, solid, and sleek, but never clunky or chunky. Each piece has beveled edges and comes in three finishes, the black walnut being my personal favorite. Just like the classic dive watches that served as its inspiration, Henry Chronos is classic and cool.” – Tori Mellott, Style Director

Society Social x The Colony Hotel

“Between the scallops, rattan, and liberal use of pink and green, I was completely smitten when I first saw Kemble Interiors’ recent redesign of the guest rooms at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach—and even more thrilled to discover that the furnishings, thanks to a match-made-in-heaven collaboration with Society Social, are actually shoppable. While I might not be able to live out my dream of moving to Palm Beach and going full Slim-Aarons-subject, it’s nice to know that I can at least throw on a Lilly dress, curl up in one of Society Social’s adorably petal-shaped chairs, and pretend I’m C.Z. Guest.” – Emma Bazilian, Content Director

Knot hardware, from $165.

Brett Walker

“I was so impressed when I first saw this hardware collab between Nest Studio and artist Katie Gong. The pieces all have a great weight and feel and the finishes are beautiful. I love anything that marries art and function, and Katie and Jessica Davis from Nest Studio completely nailed this one!” – Hudson Moore, Design Editor

Antheia Collection by Carolina Irving & Daughters

“The daughters of Carolina Irving & Daughters, Olympia and Ariadne, have created a collection of vessels inspired by paintings and ceramics from around the world. Epitomizing the unfussy, relaxed elegance that has made their tableware brand synonymous with globetrotting bohemian style, each of the new pieces is handmade by a single artisan in Portugal. Their beautiful glazes are reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea and add depth and beauty to any table. For Olympia and Ariadne, the history behind the shapes and the artisanal craft makes these pieces true luxuries to be enjoyed for generations to come.” – Martha Moskowitz, Associate Editor
