Pink Pages brings you the best of international interior decors. Because fabulous lifestyles deserve a fabulous décor.
Heath Ceramics Single Stem
Double vision! The double-glazed Single Stem vase collection pairs vibrant hues with minimalist design. A clay base coat is topped by a satiny second glaze that is then scraped off and fired, creating a frosty contrast. The limited-edition run is available in three colorways: Marigold Frost, Heather Frost, and Hibiscus Frost, and each measures 4 inches wide by 6¾ inches tall.
Imperfection is perfection for Venetian designer Rosaria Rattin’s handcrafted Maschile porcelain tableware. Inspired by prêt-à-porter, the collection’s plates and bowls bear different graphic patterns. Yet each piece is meant to mix and match, dressing your table in an ensemble of stripes, dots, and organic shapes.
Pollack Lodge, Rebound, and Oasis
It’s not easy being green. But the Green Designs collection makes it look like a beautiful breeze. Lodge’s bouclé is made of worsted wool and is rapidly renewable, while Rebound uses recycled polyester fibers to create a chenille stripe. Oasis’s blend of organic cotton and bamboo is also rapidly renewable.
Textile Arts Ruhtinatar, Karmiini, and Valmuska
Finnish design institution Marimekko is breaking out spring flowers large and small with two vintage designs from Maija Isola. Ruhtinatar, the large rose, is offered in four colorways, including orange, green, and white. Karmiini, the all circular floral, comes in two colors, including green. Valmuska, the giant graphic floral and last fall’s big hit, debuts in orange. All are cotton and measure 54 inches wide.
Yoma Textiles Coco
Taking a cue from its namesake, Coco is keeping it simple and elegant. The cotton-linen-rayon blend comes in 10 colorways in a classic, small-weave texture, serving as the ideal canvas for the rest of the manufacturer’s patterns. It measures 55 inches wide, and is perfect for light upholstery and drapery.

Featured at Danish Crafts’s Mindcraft ’08 exhibition, the solid maple rods assemble to an overall size of 60 inches high, 41 wide, and 29½ deep.
Kitchen and Bath
Kallista Tuxedo Pedestal
Barbara Barry puts her signature touches of class and sophistication on the Tuxedo Pedestal sink, the latest addition to the Tuxedo collection of bath products and accessories. The 32-inch-tall-by-21½-inch-wide pedestal features a rectangular top with round basin fashioned from vitreous china. It comes in either a stucco white or linen finish.
Jaclo Arc Column Allegro
The soaring, stainless steel Arc Column Allegro has two spray functions for showering al fresco: an adjustable-angle rain-shower head and a foot wash. It can be fitted with a mixing valve for hot water use or a drain valve for cold climates, and is equipped with an external water inlet for simple installation.
Timothy Ben Furniture
Discussing his inverted diamond-shaped Kite pendant, Cardiff, England—based Tim Forrester says, “The cord is the jewel in the crown, as it uniquely holds the whole piece together.” Composed of four radiating acrylic wedges—in clear, orange, Rot, or Blau—which encircle an incandescent bulb; the light has an adjustable cord that allows the user to set the final drop height.
Orestes Suarez Lighting Mayan
The handmade Mayan pendant updates ancient art in aluminum, with 24-karat gold, bronze, brown, polished silver, polished copper, or polished or matte nickel finish. In two sizes—8-inch diameter and 12 inches high, or 12-inch diameter and 12½ inches high—the fixture connects to its 4-inch blackened steel canopy with either twisted bronze silk or black rubber wire. It accepts incandescent or compact fluorescent bulbs.
