Geodesic Accessories

We’ve all been hard at work on the January trends 2013 issue (on newsstands December 10th), and in the process, I’ve been focusing a lot on accessories. With a plethora of options pitched for the magazine, there are always a number that get cut for one reason or another. While they may not be right for the January issue, I still love the look of these geodesic pieces. They’re faceted, geometric objects that would look great in any space. They can be functional or simply objet used to accessorize a vignette. Here are some of my picks:

These vases by Dwell Studio come in matte black or white and range from $20-$95.

Here are some metallic options that would look great collected on a tray or bookshelf. The first is from Dwell Studio and retails for $173. The second is an intricately cut brass candleholder from Design Within Reach — think of all the warm light and interesting shadows it would cast! It’s on sale for $66 USD, so order one sooner rather than later.

These sculptures are by Made Goods, available through South Hill Home in Toronto.

Restoration Hardware carries this beautiful geodesic terrarium. It would look equally great sitting empty on a shelf. And finally, this bone china and glass box by British artist Andrea Walsh offers a great two-toned option.

For more modern inspiration, see our Contemporary & Modern Living Rooms photo gallery.
