Like it or not, the spaces we use for living in are often an extension of us. We all have that sickeningly pragmatic friend you just know is going to call a so-minimal-it's-barely-there home, home. That's not us, though. We measure the greatness of a space by object pick-up rate per visitor. Yep, we know plates are probably a more important homeware piece than a leopard-print ashtray — but who cares.

From collectible bears to designer candles, the list of attention-grabbing homeware pieces below is a safe bet for turning that drab space into one you might not want to leave.

Scroll on for some space-changing homeware goods.

Wacko Maria Leopard-Print Ashtray

Leopard-Print Ceramic Ashtray

Leopard-Print Ceramic Ashtray

$70

Wacko Maria

Buy at Mr Porter

Here's the aforementioned leopard-print culprit. Japanese wild one Wacko Maria gives a better reason than most to start smoking. Just kidding — appropriate for holding jewelry, spare change, love letters. You name it.

Carhartt Walkie Talkie

Walkie Talkie

from $78

Carhartt WIP

(Available at 4 Merchants)
(Available at 4 Merchants)

Not homeware per se, but a home essential IMO. Because who wants to run down the hallway or up a flight of stairs just to let them know you take two sugars?

BAPE BE@ARBRICK 100%

A Bathing Ape Bearbrick 100%

A Bathing Ape Bearbrick 100%

from $135

Medicom Toy

(Available at 2 Merchants)
(Available at 2 Merchants)

You know the score with a BE@RBRICK. A museum-worthy home accessory that you'll have to remind people not to touch. More than once.

Muuto Glass Vase

Small Silent Glass Vase

Small Silent Glass Vase

$45

Muuto

Buy at Luisaviaroma

This one's decidedly more minimal, but the forest green hue will lift a tired space more than expected. Coming in at under $50, it's also not a bank-breaker.

Gucci Candle

Fumus Star Eye Scented Candle

Fumus Star Eye Scented Candle

from $325

Gucci

(Available at 2 Merchants)
(Available at 2 Merchants)

While the above keeps it sensible on the budget front, it's all about balance. Which is why we've included a candle that comes with a plus $300 price tag. It's Gucci, though! It's also hand-painted and made in Italy, fit for really showing off.

Billionaire Boys Club Rug

Panelled Tufted-Wool Rug

Panelled Tufted-Wool Rug

$275

Billionaire Boys Club

Sold Out at Mr Porter

Just stained your mom's cream carpet? This Billionaire Boys Club rug is a better option for covering it up than the family cat.

BFGF Pillow Cover

Green Vase Pillow Cover

Green Vase Pillow Cover

$127

BFGF

Buy at goodhood

Created by Lilian Martinez, homeware purveyor BFGF combines illustrations straight from the ancient-world with pop culture symbols and characters — the head of Lisa Simpson, basketballs, and, in this case, a Nike Swoosh, for example.

Hender Scheme Coin Bank

Car Coin Bank

Car Coin Bank

$78

Hender Scheme

Buy at goodhood

Dressing your space doesn't come cheap. And before (and after) doing so, you'll want to count that coin. Do so in style with a handcrafted leather coin bank, shaped like a car, by Hender Scheme.
