What’s not to like about this stylish Vir Stil bath cart? After all, it scores points for looks, functionality and versatility. Designed by Laura Kirar for Kallista, and crafted of black walnut veneer, it could be of service in a kitchen or dining area, near a wet bar, or holding towels, soaps and such in a bathroom. Open shelves and a set of drawers provide places to display and stash a multitude of necessities, while swivel casters make maneuverability a snap. Find the stunning storage solution at Ann Sacks, (480) 483-0025.

A woven-leather seat distinguishes this iron bench from Global Views. Tailored and terrific, it would be right at home in front of a vanity or dressing table, or paired with another at the foot of a bed. Available through Brix Home, (480) 355-6050.

Laufen’s wall-mounted Mimo vanity, described as the “Mini Cooper of the bathroom fleet,” is scaled down in size but not in style. It features a high-gloss surface finish that is resilient, easy to clean and made from recycled materials. Available through Clyde Hardware, (602) 264-2106.
An openwork iron pedestal gives McGuire’s Chaparral Table, part of the furniture company’s Kitchen Collection, an airy feel. The white solid-surface top measures 54" in diameter. Find it at McGuire Furniture Co., (480) 998-2115.

Made of glass hand-blown by artisans in Murano, Italy, this Surf Pendant from Studio Italia Design makes waves with its bold color and linear form. Available at

Perfect for the kitchen, bath or powder room, the easy-care Serengeti rug from World of Rugs, shown here in a black-and-white zebra pattern, features cut-and-loop construction. Made of PolyAcrylic pile with a 100-percent cotton canvas backing, it is available in sizes ranging from 20" x 30" to 9' x 13' at World of Rugs, (480) 419-6119.
