Tony Seat
The imaginative designs of the legendary Tony Duquette inspired this resin Macao Garden Seat from Baker Furniture. Duquette (1914-1999) loved the versatility of his 1960 design, which can be converted from side table to seat to plant stand with ease. Priced at $1,659, it's shown in coral but is also available in pearl lacquer.800/592-2537 or baker.kohlerinteriors.com for retailers.

Right-on Red

Posh Spice
The stripes in this Pasta Collection by Sina Pearson Textiles are inspired by noodles and sauces-from creamy neutrals dubbed Alfredo and Vodka to the rich tomato of Pomodoro.
