There is a certain excitement that comes from finding new companies creating beautiful products, especially when they think differently. One such new entrant is Lance Wovens. Their gift show booth stopped me in my tracks for good reason. Created by Connecticut-based Annie Arnold and Italian Stefano Bruni, Lance uses the finest Italian leathers in a signature woven technique. The result in a lush artistry that brings the best of classic Italian style with a distinctly American sense of style. The Hudson is a riff on the classic camp blanket stripes, and the faded indigo is like a favorite pair of jeans. Find them at Bergdorf Goodman and through their website.

A plethora of juicy colors and patterns await. Always interesting and highly textured, these pillows can give new life to a piece that needs some punch.

More patterns to match any interior from monochromatic to bold. The Hudson on the bottom is a remix on the classic camp blanket's wide stripe.

Hand woven leather rugs with fringed ends will get better with age.

They have reinvented the boat tote with their chic woven leather version. The handles and bottom have a pop of color, making the classic run around bag a standout.

The Hudson pillow in purple hues.

The Runway pillow in a zingy color combination.

The Mod, an enlarged plaid pattern.

A pool blue aqua solid pillow would look amazing in a tropical setting.

Even the booth design was chic.

The Runway sits next to the Bling with metallic and solid leather woven together.
