Browsing online design shops peeping at awesome housewares and furniture counts as 'work' here at Dwell, and I recently discovered what might be my new favorite design resource: Horne, founded by Ryan Walker and Alissa Parker. "Our promise is to only offer items that we think are truly wonderful," the pair write in their site's mini-manifesto. "We try to counter the 'buy disposable' mentality by selling pieces that you will cherish for years and years to come. Each item is truly a special treasure—something to hold and love but also use and enjoy." With the seasons changing and an influx of sweet new objects on their site, I asked Walker and Parker to share a few of their favorite fall-friendly items currently available at Horne, from a graphic patterned pouf to a perfect tea mug.

<h3>Henry Pouffe in Treecloud Blue, SCP, $336</h3>

Henry Pouffe in Treecloud Blue, SCP, $336 Alissa Parker-Walker: "As temperatures start dropping in the North East, I’ve really been into cozy textiles. This pouffe from Donna Wilson for SCP fits the bill. The Treecloud is knitted in Scotland from 100% lambs wool using a traditional Fair Isle knitting technique. If you look closely you will be able to make out the tiny clouds and trees that make up the pattern."

Loft Zig-Zag Floor Lamp (6 arm D9406), Jielde, $1,395 Ryan Walker: "This light can twist and turn to illuminate dark corners brought by fall’s early nights. This twisting and turning was, in fact, what has made Jielde lights one of the preferred task lighting options since its inception in the 1950’s—it also doesn’t hurt that they look so darn cool!"

Quality linen, superb craftsmanship and perfectly executed design make her items a must-have for any home. Plus, for any messy eaters out there like me, linen is highly absorbent and easily maintained."

I have had a Chilewich mat in each and every home Ryan and I have lived in together and I have never had to replace a single one. They are easy to clean, modern in design and feel great to walk on—can’t ask for much more."

Rondo Gold Cutlery, Cutipol, $85 Ryan Walker: "I love products with a heritage that still strive for modernity. Cutipol cutlery comes from the gathering of expertise and know-how over several generations going back to the very origins of the cutlery industry in Portugal. This is combined with a constant effort for improvement and the insatiable spirit of innovation. The gold rondo cutlery is the perfect marriage of old traditional craftsmanship and modern design."

Latte Cup in Slate, Mud Australia, $37 Alissa Parker-Walker: "My idea of a perfect fall afternoon would be laying next to a fire, drinking a cup of tea and enjoying a good book. What better to drink that cup o’ tea from than a latte cup from Mud Australia? Each piece from this fantastic line is handmade in a small studio outside of Sydney and is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe."
