These variations of the pattern, shown in pink from China Seas and mocha from Serena and Lily, are both modern and traditional. The crisp lines make a refreshing backdrop for brighter throw pillows, but also look classy and simple on their own.

My latest obsession comes in the form of chocolatey brown leather deskchairs. These three chairs from West Elm, Pottery Barn and Design Within Reach are flawless examples of how leather and polished metal can work together to make a sleek and sophisticated statement.

Anni Albers created this necklace out of washers and ribbon, cerca 1940. Though Albers was better known for her geometric fabric designs, the necklace is a less conventional example of her creative genius. To me it demonstrates that good design is about recognizing the beauty in ordinary objects, such as simple cylindrical shapes.
Similar elements can be found in designs like the Gardiner chain link frame from Ralph Lauren.
And incorporated in this Laura Kirar dining armchair...
and Ellery collection from Bernhardt Interiors.
