2. “Creativity flourishes with the tumbled nero marquina, honed thassos, and brushed bronze stone water jet mosaic. Used as a kitchen floor, it gives the space an unexpected character. Truly gorgeous!” Indus Stone Floor tile by James Duncan for New Ravenna. Available at Tile Showcase, Boston Design Center, 617-426-6515
3. “Who doesn’t love smoky quartz? This natural sculpture can go anywhere—a mantel, a bookcase… I like to pair it with a collection of cream-colored porcelain.” Smoky quartz sculpture, Ron Dier Design. Available at Webster & Company, Boston Design Center, 617-261-9660
4. “Lamps can be uninspiring. Not this one! It’s fun and funky and the perfect desk accessory.” Linden table lamp, Kelly Wearstler.
5. “A combination of black and white art adds drama to any space. I love to pair collectible gelatin silver prints with contemporary works. Art needs to be good.

7. Figurative Furniture: “A dramatic sculptural console table is perfect in a foyer or behind a sofa. What better way to display a collection of Assouline books?
