Au Natural
Whatever design trends come and go, nature is the original classic. By incorporating items like shells and natural skins, the sense of home is heightened by our connection to objects that remind us of quality time spent outdoors. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams have been taking Mother Nature’s cue in a variety of ways. Shown here are Natural Cretaceous Ammonites, $1,700, and laser cut hair on hide throw pillows, $280. They tone down disco glam when paired with modern sleekness and reflective surfaces or keep the timeless feeling of bringing outside in when complementing a fluffy traditional sofa. Both available at the Manhasset showroom, 1900 Northern Blvd, (516) 726-2850. mgbwhome.com



Switchblade

Switchblade
Pocket real estate is precious these days what with phones, keys, jump drives and wallets all playing roles in our every day carry. Because it’s unthinkable to lug around anything that isn’t absolutely essential, the Switch, from product think tank Quirky, is both literally and figuratively cutting edge. Unlike a classic multi-tool or folding knife—which requires you to carry a fish scaler and magnifying glass when all you really need is a very tiny saw—this modular pocket toolkit is customizable on a daily basis. The $70 instrument comes with 12 blade options including cutting tools, an LED flashlight, screwdrivers and a bottle opener. Each of these implements can be inserted or removed based on your MacGyvering schedule that day.

I’m Gonna Git You, Chukka!
The chukka boot—long a staple of London’s best dressed—is a favorite around here as well. The height of the boots conveys an impression of dressiness, but it doesn’t tip over into wintery thickness. The weave on these Cole Haan chukkas is a flourish we haven’t seen before and we’ll be rocking these with suits and dark wash jeans this autumn. $368, colehaan.com
