2012's autumnal fashions were more about the bedroom than the classroom — more nightcap and silks than grad cap and gown.
The slip-into-something-more-comfortable aesthetic — handsome and hedonistic — is particularly sumptuous in a palette of whiskey caramels, cigar browns and cognac reds. In this after-eight world of slippers and snifters, languor is ideally staged on an Anglo-Indian-style mahogany daybed from Hickory Chair. Savour the mise-en-scène by the heady, fragrant flicker of a Malin+Goetz tobacco-scented candle and set the mood with a little Frank Sinatra.
