The fashion savants at Anthropologie always seem to find a way to turn a traditional item into a star. This season, they've done just that with the Josef wingback chair ($1,698), which is dressed in a bold African print dubbed pink shell.

A group of melamine trays in bold and intricate patterns is part of Target's latest line with New York designer Thomas O'Brien (rectangle trays $4.99, large round tray $24.99). For O'Brien, a tray is a signature statement, a miniature tabletop for displaying collections. He calls it "the smallest piece of furniture I make."

The prints -- taken from a batik fabric, an Indian ivory box and a piece of English Chippendale fretwork -- were inspired by objects found in his travels.
