It’s autumn. The leaves and nature around us are changing from rich greens to faded reds and deadened browns. The more you see change outside, the more you want to see change inside. A great way to spice up your home is with a new piece of furniture that makes a statement—but there’s much more to standout pieces that just bright colors. Think dark and neutral pieces that tie a room together all while making a punch. Here, a few of our favorites.
Store your seasonal ornaments in an etagere with a unique shape from Grossman Furniture to celebrate their 90th anniversary this year. From the Melange collection, this etagere features a wooden base supporting a champagne-colored, cast-iron frame with five fixed glass shelves.

Look to designer Cristian Mohaded and his collection “Noise” for a piece that might really speak to you! Match bold colors like red and blue or more muted colors like grey and champagne for the lacquer on the frame—whatever ties your room together best. Your best decor will peek from behind the metal rods positioned around the frame, mimicking the shape of a sound wave. Noise, $1,160; roche-bobois.co
Reminiscent of an old-fashioned marquis—great for any season—this hard-edged, black cabinet is peppered with hand-blown glass spheres. Pick matte or lacquer for the finish. Double doors with hidden handles might fool you into thinking that this is a very stylish end table, but the two interior shelves hit you with some sweet storage space.

Part of the Aerin collection, Visual Comfort brings the kinked design of this lamp—funky enough to stick out, but not enough to be an eyesore. Made out of hand-rubbed antique brass, this floor lamp won’t go unnoticed, nestled in a corner of your living room. Opt for a darker shade to dim down the brightness and cozy up the atmosphere—makes for a perfect reading light! Mayotte Large Offset Floor Lamp, $1,186.50; studio-882.com
This is not your 1970’s nostalgia—a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams exclusive lava lamp is post-molten form. A simple, round microfiber lampshade is paired with the onyx base cast in champagne-colored aluminum finish. The neutral colors make this piece easy to place in any room, but still provides a break from the ordinary. Lava Table Lamp, $1,027; mgbwhome.com
