The 9-to-5 of a Vogue editor is an incredibly stimulating one, so when someone like Naomi Elizée, who is also the host of Vogue Club’s The Tip Off fashion show, finally clocks out, she craves calm—specifically in the form of online shopping. Therefore, it was a natural fit when luxury marketplace 1stDibs asked Elizée to curate a selection of furniture and decor that speaks to her chilled-out style. “When it comes to my interiors, I want it to feel easy,” she says, “not too busy, since my day-to-day is already chaotic as it is.” Each piece she’s highlighting is offered by Black gallerists and vendors on the platform in celebration of Black History Month.
It’s no secret that high-fashion taste can come with a hefty price tag, so we’ve pulled some of Elizée’s under-$150 faves to snag. (Plus one to splurge on, because it is too good not to.)
For a Jewel-Toned Touch
Many of Elizée’s larger furnishings lean into a cream and white palette, but smaller vases and light fixtures are where she chooses to add color. Exhibit A: this Brutalist-inspired vessel in an emerald hue.
For Long-Stemmed Flowers
Though it’s pretty enough to stand alone, this sandy-hued piece of stoneware makes showcasing stems easy for novice florists with its multitiered openings.
For Extra Ambience
If you’re like us and never tire of tapers, double up with this hand-sculpted candleholder that can serve as a glowing centerpiece at dinner or an artful element on your bookshelf.
For Filling Blank, Boring Corners
Like a zen garden for your eyes, gazing along the curves of this sculptural piece might help quiet the busiest of minds.
For Designer Style With a DIY Spirit
You probably haven’t played with this pulpy craft material since grade school, and odds are you never saw that project again. This grown-up version of papier-mâché was made to be seen in your space. (Psst: It’s not made for filling with water.)
For Those Who Want to Splurge
Made out of a combo of mahogany, brass, and walnut, this storage unit is certainly expensive, but if you’ve been wanting to get in on the checkered trend, this is the perfect opportunity.
