“I always want my pieces to look as if they can walk out of the room under their own power,” says Brooklyn furniture designer Evan Z. Crane. Prime example: his Creature Credenza, a sturdy guy clad in Icelandic sheep hides. 

Art of Plants
For her home décor line Art of Plants, Bay Area artist Jenny Wong-Stanley incorporates air plants with her own miniature bentwood sculptures. It’s an unconventional pairing that in arrangements like these feels completely natural. 

Tweed Project
Aoibheann McNamara and Triona Lillis founded the Tweed Project to pair traditional Irish fabrics such as linen and Donegal tweed with modern tailoring. Based in Galway, on Ireland’s West Coast, the company marries the duo’s heritage with high style. 

Jujumade
In Los Angeles designer Juliana Hung’s Jujumade line, ceramic doodads turn up in unexpected places – note the cubes, spheres, and pyramids on this breezy handwoven hat. 

Indosole
Indosole founder Kyle Parsons came across sandals with motorbike-rubber soles in Indonesia and was inspired to create a similar sustainable product. Now the San Francisco company partners with artisans at its Bali workshop to produce fashionable, eco-friendly kicks.
