Best Bet: Area’s Unfussy Crochet Pillows


Crochet isn’t typically considered the coolest of adornments (though Dolce & Gabbana certainly gave it a sexy boost). But Area’s handmade pillows in muted shades of gray and ivory give the dainty craft an unfussy upgrade. The down-stuffed cushions are cased in linen, lending a modern textural contrast to the intricate stitching on top.

Violet pillows, $145 each at Area or online.
