Major Dome-o. Graff’s Bombé collection is inspired by a ring created by Laurence Graff early in his career, around 1960. The original dome ring was composed of 33 small diamonds that created a “big flash”— it sold immediately. Nearly six decades later, the new “Halo” dome boasts either diamonds, sapphires, rubies or emeralds that surround a brilliant cut diamond. Price upon request.

Get Shorty. New for spring, this 1950s-inspired handbag from New York-based designer Brett Hayman’s line Edie Parker is utterly charming and playful. The colorful “Shorty” woven handbag ($595), with its acrylic chain handle, is an homage to the hard-case clutches popularized in the middle of the last century and is available through Hero Shop.

Nude Modeling. San Francisco-based designer Tina Frey has become a global superstar with her incredible hand-molded tableware, accessories and small-scale furniture pieces. We suggest a trio of vases — the Large Albert Vase ($209), Medium Leo Vase ($117) and Vince Bud Vase ($44) in the newest color for spring 2019 — nude!

The Hot Seat. Ros Broughton’s family has been designing and making furniture for more than a century, so it’s little wonder why he carries on the tradition. His San Francisco-based company, Fyrn, has created a “new collectible” seating selection. From the Mariposa chair ($725) to the De Haro backless counter stool ($745), Fyrn’s pieces emphasize the strength of metal and the warmth of wood and upholstery.

Lost and Found. Tucked away in an upstairs gallery in SoMa, Lost Art Salon specializes in 20th-century paintings, drawings, prints and photographs by “rediscovered historically significant artists.” Such as Santa Fe artist Seymour Tubis (1919-1993), whose 1949 oil on linen still life, Mimosa (Blue), would be a delightful addition to any midcentury modern art collection, for the price of $3,995.
