If you’re a bride- or groom-to-be looking for inspiration for your Zola or Amazon registry, you may just find everything you need to register for right here.
“We love the colors of this beautiful china set, as well as how flexible it is. It’s casual enough for everyday use and also fancy enough for a dinner party!” — Brittany Graham, lifestyle publicist, and Corbin Graham, real-estate developer, San Francisco
“We love to host dinner parties and celebrations at our apartment. Having this camera out for friends to take pictures is a really fun way to capture and share our memories. The instant gratification of taking the picture and having a physical copy right away is such a treat in a world where your best photos otherwise live on your phone.” — Emilie Johnson Pires, vice-president of SutherlandGold Group, and Struan Pires, CEO of Carrington Fox, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
“My fiancé and I will be moving into a Manhattan-sized studio, and there are few truly chic ways to divide a studio apartment. I really like the industrial feel of the curtain room dividers from Room Dividers Now, and it’s a temporary solution, which works perfectly for a renter like me.” — Keria Martin, public-relations representative, and Omari Tate, associate producer, New York

Design Ideas Harvest Basket
The woven basket gets a cool industrial update when it’s done with wire instead of straw — and the rust-proof lacquer it’s finished with keeps it (and whatever you store inside it) pristine.
$80 at Amazon
