Velo Ceiling Fan by Modern Fan

Modern form, meet classic function. Contemporary design is topped off with aerodynamically shaped blades move maximum air for efficient cooling. Designer Ron Rezek says a well-designed ceiling fan is like a chandelier, drawing attention upward while also improving the air comfort of a home.

Stretching nearly 30 inches across, the Sunflower Clock makes a statement in size and status, having become an icon in modern design. In the 1950s, George Nelson created a range of home products that brought an unconventional aesthetic to household products. Today, much of George Nelson's work continues to embody that era in design and the spirit of the mid-century.

An architectural structure from Italian architect and designer Rodolfo Dordoni, the Ray F2 Floor Lamp resembles scaffolding with a criss-crossing configuration in the lamp's tower-like base. Dordoni has designed products for Artemide, FontanaArte and Foscarini, among others.

Designed by Italian architect Aldo Rossi in 1990, the same year he was awarded the Pritzker Prize for architecture. Rossi was known for making profound design statements with simple geometric shapes, as is seen here.

Ursa the Bear by David Weeks for Areaware

Not a cute and cuddly teddy bear, but a lumbering and detailed recreation of a bear that can be a work of art perched on a shelf or an item in a child's toy box. The frame is composed of sustainable harvested beech wood, with elastic-band muscles that make Ursa durable and able to sit in various poses. Designed by award-winning designer David Weeks.

Multi-faceted minimalism is the Drift 4-Door Console, designed with the subtle ridges of a snow drift in mind. Take it from the living room to the bedroom to the dining room for a contemporary harmony, and best of all, a place to securely store anything from secrets to spare linens. Shown here in Cherry finish.

Welded from two shell frames, the colored seat frame of the Mr. Impossible Chair appears to float in midair. Designed by Philippe Starck (known for making stunning design anything but impossible) and Eugeni Quitllet in 2007, the Mr. Impossible Chair was inspired by dematerialization; as a chair, Starck said it needed to be fully functional, but could be nearly invisible in its design.

The design concept from Thomas Paul is simple: to mix unrelated, historic design styles stuch as art nouveau, 60s pop art, 70s minimalism and 18th century baroque and reinterpret with a color palatte that works in today's interiors. Thomas Paul rugs are known for their quality production—all are handmade in India, and this one in particular features New Zealand wool. Shown here in Corn and Cream.
