After carving out a career as both a fashion model and a high-profile decorator, Belgian-born Serge de Troyer eventually found himself in the role of furniture designer. His eponymous artisan-crafted collection features luxurious materials like Italian leather, high-clarity Lucite, and hand-polished chrome. Popular pieces, including a transparent Adirondack chair, cowhide coffee table, and iguana-embossed wet bar have helped land the prolific de Troyer coverage in magazines including <i>Elle Decor</i>.

If you’re looking to add some color to your home, but aren’t into the big-time primaries, try icy tones — they’re soft yet undeniably eye-catching, and they play incredibly well with neutrals. We’ve assembled a wide range of finds here to get you going on your quest for subtle color.
In this curated selection of furniture and accessories, every line is elegant yet strong, while the materials offer a study in contrast: Lucite benches, shagreen-covered tables with mahogany legs, and an accessory box made of of mother-of-pearl and chrome. The pièce de résistance is a portable trunk bar in golden brown leather.
Sophisticated and upscale with a taste of the avant-garde: that’s the gist of the offerings here. To start, Safavieh’s Couture collection is an inspired selection of some of the company’s best offerings — handcrafted, vegetable-dyed rugs by top design names like Suzanne Kasler and Martha Stewart, and contemporary-yet-classic chairs, sofas, tables, and more. Also on offer are pieces from Serge de Troyer, whose eponymous, artisan-crafted collection features luxurious materials like Italian leather, high-clarity Lucite, and hand-polished chrome. Finally, if you’re a design connoisseur, you’ll likely jump at the chance to pick up one of the LC4 chaises from Cassina.
Create a romantic Gallic feel at home with this selection: Set the tone with a hand-signed, numbered Jean Cocteau lithograph. Make a canopied etagere or ornate armoire the room's focal point. And set out one of Holly Hunt's La Lampe Gras pieces—floor and table lamps with slim, pared-down lines.
