My Favorite Things

Anyone with more than a passing interest in interior design on social media is likely already familiar with Colin King’s styling oeuvre. Part of that success comes from his ability to imbue spaces with difficult-to-pinpoint dynamism—even when working in his preferred muted palette and without human subjects. This talent has led him to regularly contribute to publications such as Architectural Digest and T and collaborates with brands ranging from West Elm to Roman and Williams Guild. It’s only natural, then, that he’s just launched his own collection, inspired by Milan and Marrakech, with Beni Rugs. Herewith, King shares his favorite items for both home and body

Jacques Adnet

$7,976

1950s Stitched-Leather Table

“I love the variation in texture across this piece, combining patinated leather, a rattan tabletop, and metalwork details. Adnet’s work complements so many different styles—you can’t go wrong.”

Menu

$740

Reverse Table Tamp

“This is a true study in materiality. The travertine base is handsomely paired with a brushed-bronze aluminum shade. However, my favorite feature is the tactile dimmer switch at the top of the fixture. I’ve used this lamp in so many different areas of my own home over the years.”

D.S & Durga

From $175.00

Cowboy Grass Eau de Parfum

“D.S. & Durga has a catalog of such well-defined scents. This fragrance uses some of my favorite notes in a really distinctive way. Herbal, dry, and green—this takes my mind straight to the natural beauty of the desert out West.”

Beni Rugs

$665

Ancora

“Ancora is one of my favorite new rug designs from Spoken Lines, my second collection with Beni Rugs. Overall, it’s inspired by the convergence of the craftsmanship of Marrakech with the architectural influence of Milan and mid-century Italian design.”

Paul Klee

$56

Paul Klee 1939

“This book of Paul Klee’s work adds a whimsical, eye-catching layer to any table or surface. I’ve always been drawn to his ability to utilize spatial relationships and graphic elements with such a lighthearted hand.”

Loewe

$1,250

Striped Mohair-Blend Blanket

“This blanket makes me want to curl up and binge-watch a new show. With a range of neutrals in a mohair-blend pattern, it’s a great finishing touch to a comfy sofa or lounge chair.”

Bode

$473

Killington Striped Shorts

“Bode continues to cement such a distinctive perspective in menswear. There is an inherent respect for unusual textiles and patterns without forgoing a bit of wit. Combined with the collaborative design work of Green River Project, I’m always intrigued to see where the line heads next.”

Le 17 Septembre

$350

Layered Faille Shirt

“The subtle layers of this shirt add just enough personality and interest without going over the top. I’m often switching out and pairing neutrals across my wardrobe, so I usually look for special, distinctive details like this design.”

Roman & Williams Guild

$112

Linen Napkins, Set of Four

“No one has approached the tabletop category like Roman & Williams Guild. I’ve frequently collaborated with their team and I always find myself coming back to these linen napkins. There’s a detailed simplicity to the light handfeel and frayed edges that adds so much character to a tablescape.”

Frama

$1,055

Aluminum Rivet Box Table

“There’s an industrial elegance to the Rivet Box Table by Frama. The untreated aluminum adds a Donald Judd-esque perspective to the design and it can easily be used as a storage or display, vertically or horizontally. The material continues to develop a beautiful patina over time.”

Smythson

$190

Passport Cover in Panama

“I’ve been lucky enough to travel more and more for work these days. This crossgrain leather passport cover from Smythson has become a travel staple and continues to wear well as I step foot into different countries. Hoping to make some time to travel for pleasure someday soon!”

Flexfit

$12

Athletic Baseball Cap

“Everyone always asks where I get my baseball caps. My secret is this Flexfit cap from Amazon. They have some great colorways and this is my go-to hat to throw on while traveling or after a long day on set.”
