Bespoke Global Boasts New Home Objects

The online retailer Bespoke Global, which enables clients to commission made-to-order items for the home, has rolled out a new series of nature-inspired decorative and contemporary furnishings. Among its top items is a collectible baseball bat by Jamey Rouch, who sources wood from his family’s farm in Three Rivers, Mich., to create tables, desks, and novelty items. The $350 bat features angular blocks of walnut, cherry, and maple woods that Rouch has cut, fused together, and laminated by hand. Additional highlights from Bespoke Global this season include a queen-size canopy bed with sweeping, free-form head- and footboards crafted from maple wood, priced at $22,500; a brass chair etched with the ringed pattern of a cross-sectioned tree trunk, at $7,100; and a sleek star-shaped side table with bone trim, at $3,520.
