Front-Row Seat

The Menu Tai­lor sofa (pric­ing on re­quest) by de­signer Rui Alves was made to be viewed from all an­gles—all the bet­ter to see its sar­to­ri­ally in­spired, grav­ity- de­fy­ing con­struc­tion. Gabriel Ross, Vic­to­ria, gr­shop.com

Pat­tern Play Marimekko’s Ku­mi­seva print ($129) was cre­ated by artist Kat­suji Wak­isaka in the 1970s, de­pict­ing an ab­stract in­ter­play of city blocks and farm­ers’ fields. Now reis­sued in an up­dated pal­ette of fresh greens and pinks and sized as a floor cush­ion, it moves into the present. Kit, Cal­gary, kit­in­te­ri­orob­jects.com

Trop­i­cal Fever For their lat­est col­lec­tion, Cole and Son col­lab­o­rated with Ard­more Ce­ram­ics to pro­duce wall­pa­pers in­spired by Africa’s ex­otic wildlife and lush mo­tifs. The Na­rina pat­tern ($190.40 for an 11-yard roll) comes in six colour­ways, from graphic neu­trals (shown) to fear­less burnt orange. Through Lee Jofa, across the West, lee­jofa.com
