Over the years, we’ve surfaced hundreds of home items here on the Strategist. And now we’ve taken a fine-tooth comb to our extensive archives to compile only the nicest, most design-forward, and, of course, functional objects that have been vetted by dozens of interior designers, architects, and all-around stylish folks — including the Strategist’s very own discerning writers and editors. We’ve personally sat on dozens of couches to find the nicest-looking, spoken to over 40 Noguchi Akari lamp devotees about the ones they treasure, and rounded up just about every essential you could think of, from beds to status-y towels to the most luxurious sheets — including the Lands’ End ones Nancy Meyers’s family swears by.

We’ve also stumbled on things through more roundabout routes (like snooping on Laila Gohar’s blood-red wall-to-wall carpeting and sniffing out the $13,000 coffee tables in Kendall Roy’s penthouse apartment). Here, we’ve collected 100 of the most delightful and useful décor and furniture items, including a sculptural LED bulb, an old-fashioned but still surprisingly sleek vacuum cleaner, and a historic bentwood chair that gets thrown around at improv theaters.
