"I've coveted Moroccan rugs for years, but they're usually out of my price range. This is a modern, geometric take on the theme, made from New Zealand wool. I have a West Elm rug in my living room and it's held up really well; I wouldn't hesitate to buy another rug from them."
West Elm Kasbah Wool Rug, $399 to $1,039, available at West Elm.
"This Portland company creates lovely made in America light fixtures based on vintage designs. I love the simplicity of this glazed porcelain and cast iron lamp, and am always a sucker for a colorful cord. I'd outfit this with an Edison bulb and set it atop my desk or dresser."
Schoolhouse Electric Ion Lamp, $85, available at Schoolhouse Electric.
