Exquisite finds from Paris’s latest Maison & Objet design fair.

1} Fendi Casa The Italian fashion and furnishings house’s Boiserie design, made from lacquered wood ($9,260 as shown), is a faux fireplace with an LCD TV built in. Custom sizes, colors, and lacquers are available for the modern “hearth.” 305.438.1660, www.fendi.com

2} Meissen Plates in the Blue Orchid series ($1,102 for a four-piece setting) have platinum mesh at the rim, while Cosmopolitan Jardin de Marrakech ($1,896 for a four-piece setting) takes its cue from designer Meryanne Loum-Martin’s garden. +49.3521.468. 6650, www.meissen.com

3} Exteta Limited editions from the Bellagio Shipwrights line are handmade from mahogany using ancient boatbuilding techniques and topped with cushions in outdoor fabric from Loro Piana. The sofa comes in two lengths (from $31,400). +39.0362.308095, www.exteta.it

4} Teckell At 35 inches long, 22 inches wide, and 17 inches high, the Intervallo foosball table (from about $5,400) is not only a game, but also a coffee table. It is offered in walnut (shown) or ash and, like the brand’s larger models, can be customized. 305.632.0786, www.teckell.com

5} Meridiani The Tuyo line’s Head High Capitonné bed ($44,812) has dual headboards with quilted tufts. Shown in sand-hued nubuck, the wood-framed design is alterable, with headboards and bases in various dimensions and fabrics for mixing and matching. 305.573.3636, www.meridiani.it

6} Brokis Each of Lucie Koldová’s Balloon table lamps for Brokis (from $875 to $1,999) is a blown glass vessel that houses a reflector holding a lightbulb.

7} Ligne Roset Ideal for those who value adaptability, the Prado sofa ($6,215 as shown) has backrest-style cushions that can be placed anywhere. A silicone-coated polyamide fabric on the bottom of the 16.5-pound cushions helps them stay put. 212.253.5629, www.ligne-roset-usa.com

8} Bentley Home Bentley has modeled its first furnishings after the rich interiors of its cars, and the Ambassador Madia Four-Shutter Sideboard ($34,500), with gunmetal steel frame, glossy wood veneer, and smoked glass top, is well equipped. +39.0543.791911, www.luxurylivingusa.com
