Restoration Hardware is always one of my go-to places for great stylish accesories and luxurious furnishings and décor, but this spring the home design purveyor launched a collection with a little more character and individuality than their regular lines, and I’m thrilled with it. The new line is called Objects of Curiosity, and it is meant as a celebration of unique and curious objects to accent and accessorize the home. Restoration Hardware has paired with a host of artisans and experts from around the world for the line, which is made up of more than 400 decorative objects, and I have loved browsing the website and seeing the different artists’ styles and additions.
One of the artists featured in the collection is Karel Heinen, a Netherlands-based historical revivalist. He has created a line of reproductions of ancient busts, architectural fragments, sculptures, and wall décor that echoes the classical styles of Greece and Rome. Even if classical art and architecture doesn’t appeal to you, I promise you’ll find some inspiration in the artist’s furniture and accessories. There is something almost haunting about his busts, urns, vases, and bookends – they really retain something of the past and would add some fabulous character, even to a modern home or garden.
