The ABKSTONE Cooking Surface Prime ceramic induction cooktop is embedded into a porcelain tile countertop. Invisible to the eye, it is a minimal, clean and energy-efficient surface. It’s a truly masterful innovation I feel will spark a major trend toward “hidden” induction cooktops.

From Dornbracht, the MEM x Nature Squared Faucet features responsibly-sourced natural waste materials – including eggshells, seashells, plant materials and feathers – used to decorate the handles. The hand-crafted fitting elevates the visual appeal of any space it occupies.

Inspired by the look and feel of melted candle wax and featuring a velvety smooth, luxurious-feeling surface, the Cera Collection represents a totally new creative aesthetic in the world of ceramic surfaces. Produced by Ceramiche Refin, these tiles would be magnificent in a bathroom to create a spa-like oasis or in a living room to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The Treeline light fixture is the first consumer product made of fallen pin-oak trees from NYC’s urban forest. Its clean lines are heavenly over a modern kitchen island! The manufacturer Stickbulb is a certified B Corp, and their LED fixtures are as cutting-edge as their sustainability standards.
