DIA — that's short for Design Institute America — specializes in modern, contemporary furniture in chrome, glass, and stainless steel. Side tables, barstools, desks, etageres, dining tables and chairs, curios, bar carts, mirrors and other pieces feature sculptural elements and evoke sleek modernity. In business for over 40 years, DIA has long been regarded as a go-to brand for cutting-edge furniture thanks to its singular designs, which represent the best of modern-day eclecticism.
Nothing inspires (and rewards) hard work like a beautiful office—and if that office is in your home, this is doubly true. Set a cerebral, stylish tone with Soicher Marin's vintage map prints and astrology charts; add a stately vibe with Barreveld's slanted-top Reservations Desk; and light it all up with Holly Hunt's La Lampe Gras collection, which elegantly evokes the Industrial Era.
These essential furniture pieces will truly anchor a room. We’ve got something for every style, whether you’re looking for contemporary lines in bold color or classic wood and upholstered pieces. Take your pick, and you’ll be well on your way to a room that’s inspired by design.
“In the summer, many of us create clean, open space indoors,” says Gilt Home editorial director, Tom Delavan. “But the onset of fall is the time to re-fill your room and create a nest-like atmosphere.” Warm colors like orange and rust, he notes, “heighten that inviting effect.” To that end, this huge selection, from tabletop items to furniture, is as autumnal as apple pie.
Redecorating a room is a great way to reflect your refreshed mental outlook for the new year. We’ve put together some of our favorite items — each defines a space with flair and personality, from Zollanvari’s hand-knotted rugs and Swaim’s elegant Fuse wing chair, to Barreveld’s vintage-feeling accessories. While you’re at it, refresh your bed linens and bath towels too. We’ve got plenty of top-flight options from Sferra, Designers Guild, and more.
