Ginger blue side table, 22 inches tall with 20-inch diameter, $299

Although the laser-cut design is described as a Celtic knot, the hexagonal shape and bright blue color of this 18-gauge carbon steel side table easily suggests Marrakesh and Jacques Majorelle.

Ness candle sconce, 4.75 inches wide by 5 inches deep by 17 inches tall, $49.95

Candlelight is an important Moroccan design element used to create a sense of mystery and romance. This sconce exhibits the delicate metal screen work seen in Marrakesh but serves it up with a contemporary twist.
