Editor’s Spotlight: New England Home

Editor in chief Clinton Smith highlights a collection of uniquely beautiful objects from High Point

The comforts of home have never been as important as they are now. In 2020, it’s all about surrounding yourself with things that truly speak to you. Objects and furnishings that aren’t just beautiful, but also have an emotional resonance. The fall High Point Market featured so many unique designs that were both inspiring and for keeps!

Currey & Company Oona Orb

In rooms that don’t have interesting art or great views, leave it to a statement light fixture to become the stylish focal point. The fluid lines, organic touches, and oversized scale of Currey & Co's Oona Orb – 40 inches tall and 38 inches in diameter – make it a powerhouse, as well as a sure-fire conversation starter.

Hable for Hickory Chair Chad Table

There can never be too many occasional tables in a room – for a place to put a drink, or to plop down a book. The trick is to find one that isn’t too big, nor too small. You don’t need it to overpower the space, yet it still needs to have a signature style of its own. Even when not in use, the Chad table by Hable for Hickory Chair is a handsome addition. And with that second shelf, it’s the perfect mix of form and function.
