Since 1991, Long Island City-based designer Ally Rosson has specialized in artisan-crafted bath accessories. Each piece is hand-enameled or electroplated with precious metals, and then intensely detailed with stones and ornaments. (One wastebasket can take up to five days to produce!) The resulting product is more art than mass-market good, something that has attracted top-drawer stores including Gracious Home in New York, and Selfridges and Harrods in the U.K.
A hand-enameled wastebasket accented with Austrian crystals, a soap dispenser with an 18K gold-plated nozzle, and a tissue box with jeweled tassels: All of these powder-room accents, handmade in the U.S. by artisans, distinguish themselves with high-end materials and unique details.
Clean silhouettes and arresting colors: that’s what you need to make a room pop. We've got plenty of Pop Art–inspired lounge pieces here, from retro lounge chairs in lime-green leather, to an ottoman woven from tomato-colored wire. There are plenty of accessories too (like bright resin roller skates, for one). Think big and small: even a hot pink Bodum coffee press or a replica of Andy Warhol’s iconic “Brillo Box” can transform a space.
