Our Style Assistant Is Serving Up Design Inspiration à la Mod

For our Fall issue, we asked our editors to choose specific aesthetics as inspiration for their curations of autumn must-haves. Style assistant Julia Stevens went with a mod moment, born from Dries Van Noten’s Spring 2019 mensware runway show, where bold and vibrant prints reminiscent of the ’60s set the scene. “Retro patterns are daring and carefree, both for home decor and your wardrobe,” says Stevens. “The whole vibe brings me joy, and isn’t that what finding your signature look is all about?” Below, she shares her favorite pieces from the era, including a so-comfy-you’ll-never-get-up couch and an Op Art–influenced dress colorful enough to combat the grayest of days.

If you want to dress up your drink…
Tulip Glasses, Fferrone ($160 for set of 2)
Fferrone
$160.00 I love the sleek shape of these Fferrone glasses, and sipping from ultra-mod cups actually does make drinks taste better.


If florals for spring aren’t groundbreaking…
Vertical Flowers Tote, Loewe ($3,200)
Loewe
$3200.00 This bag is a great example of the playful-meets-chic vibe the ’60s is known for. Leave it to Loewe to make flower power and fringe feel fresh.


If you want to sit in style…
Alpha Sofa by Pierre Paulin, Ralph Pucci
Ralph Pucci
Veruschka would approve of a cloud-like sofa straight from the Blow-Up set.


If your decor is always far-out…
Ionic Fabric, Kelly Wearstler
Kelly Wearstler
The Wave Fabric, Schumacher
Schumacher
I want to upholster my world in these Kelly Wearstler and Schumacher prints, but a throw pillow will do for now.


If hosting has you puzzled…
Frank Stella Puzzle, Moma Design Store ($20)
Moma Design Store
$20.00 What looks like graphic art for your coffee table is actually a 750-piece puzzle modeled after Frank Stella’s famous 1970s Firuzabad. It’s never a bad idea to provide on-theme entertainment at an era-specific cocktail party.


If your hallway needs a little TLC…
Pujo Coat Stand, Ferm Living (€405)
Ferm Living
€405.00 A chic fall wardrobe starts with a chic clothing rack. Liven up your corridor with this sculptural-meets-functional option from Ferm Living.


If Twiggy is your fashion icon…
Jasmine Dress, Stine Goya ($323)
Stine Goya
$323.00 You heard it here first—squiggles are the new stripes. Warning: This Stine Goya dress might cause wearers to crave a pixie cut.


If you want to illuminate your bedside table…
Pluma Lamps, Steven Bukowski (From $999)
Steven Bukowski
$999.00 Groovy doesn’t begin to describe these globe lights. The lamps go from moody to moodier with just a tap, proving that looking like 1965 but functioning like 2019 makes for a dynamite combination.
