    Cathers Home, Basalt

    Rustic meets contemporary in this 3,000-square-foot showroom, where you’ll find a well-edited collection of furnishings and accessories from designers’ favorite lines, including Arteriors, Bernhardt, and Currey & Company. While you’re there, pick up some ideas from the shop’s vignettes about how best to mix materials in a single room—or just ask one of the in-house design pros to share her secrets. 530 Basalt Ave., Basalt, 970-927-6556

    Tweed, Telluride

    Designers Victoria Crawford and Robyn Shaw put together this lively mix of antique and new home accents that emphasizes color, texture, and textiles—think alpaca cashmere and Mexican Otomi embroidery. Customers can’t get enough of the scented candle fragrances that always fill the air here (and yes, those are for sale too). 151 S. Pine St., Telluride, 970-728-8186

    Stel House & Home, Steamboat Springs

    Vintage hubcap wall art. Shelves made from timeworn corbels and capitals. Linen throw pillows that show off kitschy, mountain-inspired graphics. The goods at this shop have an industrial, architectural edge. (No wonder: Co-owner Brandt Vanderbosch is the principal of local architecture firm Vertical Arts.) Bonus: Many pieces are made from reclaimed and repurposed materials, giving each one a unique style and story. 690 Marketplace Plaza, Steamboat Springs, 970-871-0057
