Geometry and texture take design to another dimension.

Gabriel Scott  

The Harlow large chandelier ($13,850), from Gabriel Kakon and Scott Richler of Gabriel Scott, radiates like electric bijoux. Fittingly, it was inspired by Richler’s four years as a jewelry designer. Handmade in two sizes, with finishes of black steel, satin brass, or satin copper, the fixture showcases handblown glass in alabaster white (with brass finish) or smoked black. gabriel-scott.com; available to the trade through Lori Graham Design + Home, 202.745.0118, lorigraham.com

Munna

This Portuguese company’s Empire folding screen (priced from $9,120) channels early-20th-century architecture’s skyline swing. The piece, a decadent display of art deco styling designed by Sérgio Mendes, stands about 6.5 feet tall, pairs gold leaf and cotton velvet, and comes in several colors, including the steel blue hue. munnadesign.com; available in the U.S. through Form, 702.804.1692, formvegas.com

John Lyle

Long celebrated for his fireplace screens and accessories, the New York–based designer John Lyle also applies his artistry to a collection of furniture, lighting, and outdoor creations. His Facet table ($10,350)—available in 10 bronze finishes and measuring 18 inches high and 24 inches wide—alluringly captures and refracts light. 646.344.1964, johnlyledesign.com

Domeau & Pérès  

New Yorkers seeking distinctive goods for the home often wander into SoHo’s Atelier Courbet, where purveyor Melanie Courbet offers the contemporary creations of such artisanal companies as Domeau Pérès. The French workshop’s Jyn and Jon armchair and ottoman ($7,500 in wool cloth; $9,500 for leather), conjured up by the Argentine designer Pablo Reinoso, incorporate foam layers that together create a compelling form. domeauperes.com; available through Atelier Courbet, 212.226.7378, ateliercourbet.com
