Ria and Yiouri of R&Y Augousti were born, respectively, in the Philippines and Cyprus. They met in London, and now live in Paris. Their chic home and fashion accessories evince the duo’s global backgrounds and interest in multiple facets of design. Featuring a classic French flavor, their luxury goods range from simple trays to ornate shagreen boxes covered in feathers and inlaid shells and python clutch bags. Add into the mix the designers’ other ventures — wallets and small leather goods, handbags, furniture, jewelry — and their fans can take R&Y Augousti’s signature exoticism with them wherever they go.
Exotic materials elevate these boxes, trays, and decorative bowls from object, to objet d’art. And at major discounts (we’re talking up to 90 percent off), you’re picking up some seriously luxe stuff at very un-luxe prices.
This winter, flank your mantel with a pair of terracotta finials or faceted candlesticks with crystal drops. Down below, cluster vases and cachepots and above it all hang a mirror, like the round rustic-chic design we tracked down from Barreveld. If you don’t have a flue, try one of Eco Smart Fire’s sleek, portable designs. And don't forget, as a final touch add plenty of cashmere throws.
Luxe, outfit-making accents from Marchesa, Jason Wu, and more.
