This Translucent, Candy-Colored Lucite Jewelry is All We Want to Wear Right Now

Knots, chains, translucent candy colors — Corey Moranis's SS19 Lucite jewelry collection ticks off more trend boxes that we could possibly count. But in truth, the most beguiling thing about Moranis's jewelry is the Lucite itself — a fascinating material that recalls our obsession with colored glass; it, too, retains the memory of its previously liquid state.

Fort Standard’s New Striped Wood Collection Goes Against the Grain

Gio Ponti, cabana stripes, hoop skirts — these are just a few of the references that come to mind when you first see Fort Standard's new Cooperage collection, made from alternating stripes of light and dark wood, which launched this week in New York at Colony Design.

We're now deep in the age of the Instagram-friendly immersive installation, which was especially evident at this year's Milan furniture fair, where we couldn't help but laugh at how many brands were touting some sort of earnestly dramatic light-based experience. And yet, for materials brands, there really is no better way to inspire visitors — and no one did that better last month than Tarkett, who with Note Design Studio installed a towering forest of playful geometric columns inside one of Milan's most beautiful buildings, the 150-year-old Circolo Filologico Milanese.
