By Eric Mutrie

DL-0616-LB-Condo-Areawarepillow-2016

Cushion by Areaware
This charming English bulldog pillow is as huggable as a real canine – with no kibble required. Designer Ross Menuez’s Fauna collection includes organic-cotton cushions silkscreened with the portraits of a dozen other breeds, including a Dalmation, schnauzer and more. Fear not, cat lovers – feline versions are also available. $50, at Rolo

DL-0616-LB-Condo-BoConceptCopenhagen-2016

Copenhagen by BoConcept
Configure this modular wall system to show off your art books and tchotchke collection while keeping unsightly cables hidden behind closed doors. Choose from ash-grey or matte-white MDF cabinetry and a range of door finishes. $8020, at BoConcept

DL-0616-LB-Condo-Softline-2016

Twilight by Softline
Provide a comfortable place for out-of-towners to crash with this aluminum-framed sleeper sofa. Simply push back the bolster pillow and fold down the top cushion to create a dreamy queen-sized bed. $2760, at Design Within Reach

DL-0616-LB-Condo-WestElmtable-2016

Mid-century coffee table by West Elm
This walnut-veneered number’s pop-up top reveals hidden storage space while doubling as a tray for laptops or TV dinners. Stash a selection of eclectic coasters in the open shelf, or keep glasses confined to the glossy marble leaf to avoid drink-ring stains altogether. $840, at West Elm

DL-0616-LB-Condo-PabloLana-2016

Lana by Pablo
Thanks to a magnetic mount, this LED floor lamp’s wool felt shade can be tilted, slid, or even detached and re-mounted to the back side of the light’s steel frame. The height-adjustable circular ledge is the perfect spot to rest a mug while reading that new book-club pick. From $595, at LightForm
