PINKBLOT

A floral Rorschach test, the Poppy rug (or wallcovering) by fashion house Alexander McQueen is a head turner. It is handmade in Nepal, using traditional needlepoint techniques, with cashmere and silk. $2490, at Avenue Road, 415 Eastern Ave

EDGE OF GLORY

The top box balances precariously on the edge of this metal storage unit. Inspired by Japan’s natural elements, the piece comes in a cherry blossom hue and a warm gray – a nod to the country’s babbling brooks. $1935, at Kiosk, 288 King St E
