As a close watcher of trends in the design world, I will say that there's a lot out there that is very beautiful, but few things that feel really new. There are always exceptions, though, like these iridescent homewares (and accessories). They feel different and futuristic and maybe even a little bit magical, the perfect thing for taking your home, and your style, to the next level.

Natura Rainbow Flatware at Horchow, $175

Above: Definitely a bit pricey, but watch for sales. Also, imagine how fantastic these would look on a table — just pair them with simple white plates and linens and you're ready to go.

Glas Italia Shimmer Side Table at ABC Carpet & Home, starting at $2,195

The '80s child in me makes no apologies about being completely obsessed with this table, whose color changes depending on the angle from which you view it. Magical.

Iridescent Bib Necklace by Manifold Brooklyn, $115

A pretty, statement-making iridescent necklace, inspired by the geometries of folded paper.

'Oil' Candle by Tom Dixon at Saks Fifth Avenue, $100

I mean, I don't know that oil is the first thing I'd like my home to smell like, but I trust Tom, and the vase is awfully pretty (though the price tag is quite scary).

Tiny mosaic tile usually feels a little bit 2004, but the iridescent sheen makes it something entirely new. This is a bathroom at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, from Muy Yum, via Poppytalk.

Hubert Bracelet at Adorn Milk, $149

Zetus lapetus, these are fantastic! Wear with an all-white outfit and a slightly mysterious expression for a chic "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century" vibe.
