The five fanciful windswept arms and oversized bobeches on this brilliantly blue Italian chandelier were formed on the island of Murano, which has specialized in elegant glasswares for centuries. In Murano, ferry-loads of visitors come to explore the Museo del Vetro, which tells the story of glass through the centuries, and to shop for locally crafted souvenirs, just like this unique light piece.
Bring those Palm Beach summertime vibes to any location with this vibrant and fun floral-patterned three-seat sofa, which works both indoors and out. The frame of the piece is made of sculptural-designed rattan with graceful curved arches, and joints wrapped in wicker, which reinforces the structural support of the sofa.
Storage with style: This eclectic cherrywood chest is painted a cheerful robin’s-egg blue, with gold routed accents and hardware. The three-drawer piece was designed for Kindel Furniture by Dorothy Draper, who was a pioneer in interior design—she dominated the field from 1925 to 1960, when she was named the most influential tastemaker in America.
From the shores of the tropical Caribbean to the French Riviera, the aquamarine color palette can work with any décor style, regardless which international destination is serving as inspiration. Nothing proves that point more than this set of six vintage French gilded dining chairs from the 1940s. The classic lines and solid mahogany frames are strictly traditional, while the pale-blue velour keeps the mood light—not stuffy.
Never forget that last tropical vacation with this quirky Arts & Crafts-style yellow gold, porcelain and diamond fish brooch. It depicts a beautiful aquamarine and goldenrod fish against swaying seagrass, surrounded by a ring of 24 single- and mixed-cut diamonds. Wearing this adorable aquatic friend on your lapel is certainly an easier (and more fashionable) option than carrying that album of holiday photos around with you.
