We've long loved the exquisite clothes that Chinar Farooqui creates for her Jaipur-based label, Injiri—so we're thrilled that she's introduced a collection for the home, including this handwoven organic cotton bedcover, which measures approximately 80" x 60" and could double as a tablecloth. Injiri embodies the idea that craft is a living tradition, and because textile techniques—spinning, dyeing, weaving, embroidery, finishing—are often specific to a certain region, each piece in this collection passes through the hands of many different people across India. So whether it's tablecloths or pillows or bedcovers, Farooqui's work is for the person who appreciates natural fibers and colors; who seeks beauty and craftsmanship without preciousness; who appreciates the hand of the artisan.View full product details
These strung wooden beads by Fredericks & Mae, adorned with thread and a horse-hair tassel, can be worn as a statement necklace or displayed as a beautiful objet d'art. These beads were inspired by the worry beads, or kombolói, used in Greek and Cypriot culture, which were manipulated with one or two hands and used to pass time. (Unlike similar prayer beads used in many religious traditions, such worry beads had no religious or ceremonial purpose.) At their longest, small worry beads are 27" long, and feature a small tassel. Made by hand in the duo's Brooklyn studio, each one is unique.View full product details
We're in love with the unusual color combination and geometric pattern of this vintage wool pillow from northern Morocco, which is made from a handwoven kilim. Featuring a different design on each side, you can choose more emerald green or less, depending on your decor. Although in excellent condition, there are some minor imperfections in the weave due to its vintage nature—this is part of its charm and shouldn't be considered a defect. Measures approximately 19" x 15", with a 6" opening along one side that can be used for a pillow insert (not included).View full product details
Lie down and relax—think, read, dream—anywhere on these incredibly comfortable, impossibly chic throw beds. The perfect mix of pillow and mattress, throw beds are the creation of Beata Henrichs-Lieb of Los Angeles-based Hedgehouse, who was inspired by an image from The World of Interiors magazine, of a Dutch sea captain's bed from the 1800s stacked high with cushy, smushy handmade mattresses. Her modern interpretation features 30" x 70" cushions filled with down and fiber, covered in removable and washable linen or cotton. Each one comes with a matching tote, making them perfect for the beach, the pool, the park, sleepovers—or your own sofa. Seen here is the Mt. Elbrus gold linen.
Check out our own blog here for more photos of Hedgehouse throw beds—and this recent article in The New York Times should erase any lingering doubts about the comfort and ease of this exceptional new product.View full product details

Avneet Basi launched her Brooklyn-based jewelry line, Krysos + Chandi, in 2013; taking inspiration from the cultures of ancient Greece and India, and grounding it in her own fresh, modern aesthetic. Named for the Greek god of gold and the Hindi word for silver, the collection marries burnished metal and geometric shapes with pops of colorful yarn and metallic thread. This stunning 25"-long Jya necklace features an ornate brass pendant accented with cotton thread—a statement piece that adds elegance and an interesting pop of texture to any outfit. Care: Brass and other metals can develop a natural patina over time due to exposure to oxygen, moisture, and oils on the skin. To help prevent excessive patina and oxidation, keep jewelry clean and dry. Surface luster can be restored with a polishing cloth.View full product details

These vintage cups from India are beautifully etched by hand in brass and silver. Originally used for serving a traditional yoghurt-based drink called lassi, they make wonderful vases and display vessels for everything from paintbrushes and pencils to kitchen utensils—or simply group them for a striking vignette. Each one features a unique surface pattern, which means that no two are exactly alike and the lassi cup you receive may not match those pictured. Please note that the pattern and height will vary from cup to cup; the latter of which generally ranges from 5" to 7".View full product details
