Take the Mandarin Oriental Hotel's Mouth-Blown Glass Pebble Vase Home

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

Designed by Kate Hume and available through Discover&Deliver, the Pebble vase is the newest home décor item on our wish list. Handmade in Belgium, the vase features an organic shape that reminds us more of a folding vine than a pebble. Each one is mouth-blown glass and comes in a variety of colors like cognac, gold, lime green, turquoise, and aubergine (which can be seen in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Paris, pictured above). Though two of the same color pair well, we like the idea of grouping together a few in different colors.

Host the Ultimate Tea Party with the Gorgeous Arabesque Coffee & Tea Pot Set

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

It's a good thing the Arabesque Coffee and Tea Pot Set from Merdinger House of Design wasn't around when I was a kid, because I would have harassed my parents until they bought it for me. It's just so darn pretty! The Arabesque (which is a type of ancient design often seen in Islamic art) set is a work of art in of itself, and you may have a hard time bringing yourself to actually use it. Crafted from fine bone china porcelain that contains almost 50 percent bone ash, the two pots ($889) are decorated with a golden embossed pattern inspired by nature, while the handles and caps are hand-painted with gold. Unfortunately, the entire set seen in the photo is sold as separate pieces. The Tea Cup and Saucer cost $299 for the pair, the Small Gold Spoon is $34, and the Sugar and Creamer Vessel Set is $649. So if you want everything in the photo—and why wouldn't you?—it will cost around $1,118.

Channel an Industrial 18th-Century France With the Cascade Chair

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

When we first saw the Cascade Chair from Studio A, our first thought was, "NEED!" With its dramatically curved iron bonnet, the industrial design looks to be inspired by ornate furniture from 18th-century France with a dash of steampunk thrown in. It's basically the Sweeney Todd version of Restoration Hardware's Versailles Chair. The oversized design, which features a dark brown saddle leather cushion, is over five feet tall so even your tallest of friends can probably sit in it comfortably. We suggest pairing it with a warm atmosphere, since it would be a nice contrast with the colder iron, but there's nothing stopping you from going dungeon chic—that's probably a thing.

This Super Soft Sheepskin Bean Bag Chair is a Throwback Piece You'll Actually Want

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

Most of us had a bean bag chair when we were kids, but trust us, this Sheepskin Bean Bag from Parker Wool isn't it. This design is a modern interpretation of the old, bringing in natural sheepskin for extra fuzziness and comfort. The company sources most of their sheepskin from New Zealand and Australia (with some coming from the Northern European Highlands), and since they only use the byproducts of the meat industry, no animals are harmed for the sake of the bags alone. With four colors available (ivory, linen, vole, and steel), you can choose the $1,200 three-foot bag (great for one person) or the $2,900 six-foot version (which is big enough for one person to lounge and several people to sit). It important to know though that if you go for the larger bag, it will arrive unfilled (the fill will be shipped separately). If it came ready to lounge on, you wouldn't be able to squeeze it through the front door!
