Elephant Chair, Natural Sheepskin Rug, Feather Headdress
Chosen by designer Laura Kirar: “It’s an amazing chair-and-a-half: spacious for one, cozy for two. I’ve used it in a study.”

Natural Sheepskin Rug (on chair)
Picked by designer Tom Delavan: “It’s a great, affordable way to soften a boxy chair or camouflage one that you don’t really like.”
To buy: $118 (2 by 4 feet), shadesoflight.com.
Used countless times by designer Vicente Wolf: “This piece has the sense that it’s traveled, that it had a life before it arrived to you. I’ve mounted one on the front of a bookcase and, in a different space, stacked three over a side table. I also like it off-center above a bed, to add a little quirk.”
