A selection of this season’s gilt-y pleasures.

While trend-watching is not (strictly speaking) our style, it’s hard to ignore this season’s decadent shades of gold, mustard, yellow and citrine. Here, we compile a selection of hot design pieces embracing the golden hues.

1. Solitaire Diamond Ring

This intriguing Hermon & Son ring is crafted from 24ct yellow gold plate to appear as a solitaire diamond.

2. Etch candleholder

In true Tom Dixon fashion this fine gold geodesic candle holder is inspired by the logic of pure mathematics. Pop a candle in it and watch the mass of intricate shadows.

3. Kelly Sofa

Designed by N Garnham and R Carlson for Jardan, the romantic Kelly sofa has smooth curves and a rich pollen floral print. Could this be the casanova of chairs? 

4. Dime boot

Step out in these dazzling gold ‘moc-croc’ boots from fashion house, Gorman.

5. Yume wallet

Formed from rich citrine leather and an edging of silver, the Yume wallet brings a punch of colour and contemporary style to your travels. 

6. Oud Lamp by Nat Cheshire

This opulent table lamp features a single, polished brass armature and a sphere of polished crimson. A quarter-turn operates the internal switch.

7. Stchu Moon Pendant

Beneath its bonnet of matte black the sparkling Stchu Moon by Catellani & Smith reveals warm golden tones.
