From outdoor living products to furniture and lighting, the assortment includes everything you need to furnish your modern lifestyle. Here are ten highlights, and be sure to explore the complete collection at the Dwell Store.

Set of three round resin wall hooks for hallway, living room, or bedroom
San Francisco–based designer Tina Frey creates modern resin products for the home, using a thoroughly executed design, hand sculpting, and hand casting process. Her bold and playful wall hooks make a graphic addition to an interior. Made from shatterproof resin, each set of three wall hooks includes a small, medium, and large knob.

Salt and pepper shakers crafted from copper or brass
Seattle–based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio’s Cylinder Shaker Set is a modern take on a classic tabletop accessory. Crafted in brass or copper, the shakers are finished with a vigorous polish and a protective coating to not only give off a lustrous shine, but also maintain it over time.

Powder-coated steel indoor and outdoor lounge chair
Los Angeles-based Bend designed the Farmhouse Lounge Chair to be as sturdy as a piece of farm machinery, but easy to relax in after a long day. The chair blends traditional elements—the backrest is inspired by old Amish barn architecture—and modern geometric shapes.

Indoor or outdoor plastic mug in simple and classic white
Designed by Massimo and Lella Vignelli for Heller in 1964, the Heller Dinnerware Collection is characterized by clean lines and a simple, classic aesthetic. Crafted in melamine, the Dinnerware Mug is a no-frills, simple classic that is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or tea.

Rich walnut chair inspired by original midcentury design
Designed by Benjamin Cherner, the Cherner Lounge Arm Chair is defined by its inviting, curved shape that recalls the original 1958 Cherner chair designed by Benjamin’s father, Norman. The molded plywood shell, solid bentwood arm, and laminated wood base flow fluidly into one another, which gives the lounge chair an organic, calming sensibility.

Planter and tote made of recycled material with wood handle
Loll Designs creates versatile furniture and accessories “for the modern lollygagger.” Each piece is designed for use outdoors and is weather resistant. A part of Loll’s accessories collection, this garden tote is designed with clean lines and an easy-to-grab handle. It can be used—as the name suggests—to tote things around, or as a planter.

Basketwoven floor mat in a variety of sizes and shapes for versatile floor coverings
From New York–based designer Sandy Chilewich, the Mini Basketweave floor mat utilizes two yarns layered over two, instead of the traditional four over four found in the signature Basketweave. The result is a subtler, quieter texture and pleasingly uniform surface. The mat is durable and adaptable to a variety of spaces.

Stoneware hummingbird feeder in high gloss finish
This sculptural hummingbird feeder from upstate New York designer Jim Schatz makes an elegant addition to a backyard, front porch, or garden. Made from glossy stoneware in a richly saturated red—designed to attract hummingbirds and other small birds—the feeder is inspired by flowers. It features an open mouth like a bloomed flower and a yellow stamen-like center that provides food to birds.

Versatile three-arm chandelier that can be converted in several configurations
An industrial take on an overhead chandelier, the three-arm chandelier from Brooklyn’s Workstead can be reconfigured into a variety of shapes. Structured as a horizontal fixture, the Industrial Chandelier can hang just three feet from the ceiling, or when aligned vertically, it can hang five feet for a more dramatic effect.
