Or opt for a one-of-a-kind, hair-on-cowhide floor covering handmade by Kyle Bunting. Durable and beautiful, it's sure to be quite a conversation starter. (Need tips to get the cocktail party started?

What nature creates, New York-based designer Michael Aram reimagines in his graceful, handcrafted metal objects for the home. During a journey to India almost two decades ago, Aram (now a part-time New Delhi resident) was drawn to the artistry of the country’s craftsmen. His inspiration led him to create pieces that translated the shimmering lines of a flower petal, the jagged beauty of coral and the elegantly curved horn of an impala into objects with a bit of practical magic—cocktail accessories and serving trays, furniture and lighting. Devotees such as Top Design host India Hicks admire Aram’s intricacies of texture and form.
