Look Down

Twenty Two Home has been getting into vintage Peruvian wool rugs and modern Turkish and Moroccan kilims. “They’re just different, and they’re beautiful,” says owner and interior designer Elisa Chambers, and we agree. The white and off-white kilims are especially striking, and the colors—from natural dyes—in the Peruvian pieces are rich and bold, despite being decades old. From $625, Twenty Two Home, 45 E. Deloney, 307/733-9922, twentytwohome.com

Beauty in simplicity

Taiwan-based Tools to Liveby creates desk accessories that highlight the beauty in common things. Sometimes the company does its own designs, like brass scissors and pens. Other times it resurrects forgotten classics, like brass paperclips from the early 1900s. A pile of paper never looked as good as when wearing an “owl” (1908), “ideal” (1903), or “mogul” (1918) style paperclip. From $14, Paper and Grace, 55 Glenwood St., 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com

origami or kayak?

As much a work of art as of engineering and design, Oru Kayak’s original foldable kayak (the Bay ST) is in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The company’s Beach LT model was improved in 2017. Its hull is still made from a custom polypropylene with a ten-year UV treatment, and it still takes only about three minutes to assemble (and it can still be folded down so that you can carry in on your back and keep it stored in a small closet), but the cockpit has been expanded to make it more comfortable and easier to use. String Lake has never seen such style. $1,299, orukayak.com

Catch-All

There’s never been a cuter way to tidy up in the kids’ room than Petit Pehr’s Noah’s Ark hamper. The 18-x-20-inch, 100 percent cotton canvas hamper can hold everything from dirty clothes to books and craft supplies. Outside, all you see are illustrations based on the classic tale. $95, Scandia Down, 165 Center St., 307/733-1038, scandiahome.com

Cheers

Because your whiskey deserves to look good, consider putting it in a flask covered in leather or emblazoned with a Jackson Hole Mountain Resort trail map, a bucking bronco, or “83001,” Jackson’s zip code. From $26, MADE, 125 N. Cache St., 307/690-7957, madejacksonhole.com

Stuffed animals

Looking for something fun for the wall in your kids’ room? Fairgame’s Wildlife plush mounts include skunks, deer, bears, moose, mountain goats, and more. Each comes with grooming tips and a spirit message like “Work hard. Don’t ever give up.” From $19.99, Jackson Hole Toy Store, 165 Center St., 307/734-2663, jacksonholetoystore.com

Snow shower

The brainchild of longtime valley local Johnny Verdon, Powder Curtains brings the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort winter trail map into your shower. Other ski areas will be coming—not that you’d want the trail map of any other resort hanging in your Jackson Hole home. $60, 307/734-8885, powdercurtains.com

Affordable Art

For a Donna Howell-Sickles painting, you have to go to Mountain Trails Gallery. And spend thousands of dollars. We love her work—she specializes in colorful cowgirls—reprinted on affordable coffee mugs and serving platters. From $19.99, Willow Creek Interior Design, 115 E. Broadway, 307/733-7868, willowcreekhf.com

Coming clean

“She’s a total soap geek,” says Paper and Grace manager Cassie Dean of the Washington-based soap maker behind the bespoke bars the shop sells. These soaps are gorgeous and made from natural ingredients. Scents come from pure essential oils and include black sugar, almond, lemongrass, coconut lime, honeysuckle and fig, and 1851. The formulation and fragrance of the last soap, which is a warm blend of citrus and spice, was a favorite of Napoleon and Queen Victoria’s, and used by troops fighting in the Civil War. $6, Paper and Grace, 55 Glenwood St., 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com

Spell it out

Whatever it is you want to say at your next party, it’ll look best when spelled out in gold letter balloons. From $3/letter, Paper and Grace, 55 Glenwood St., 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com
