Jordana Reuben Yechiel picks the hottest interiors items for summer 2017

Big Softie: Abyss and Habidecor towel

In need of a great Champagne bucket, luxury tableware or a few key pieces for your superyacht beach club this season? Set you and your superyacht apart with Jordana Reuben Yechiel's pick of highly desirable interiors items that are cleverly blurring the boundaries between design, art and fashion this summer.

Big softie: Abyss and Habidecor towel

There’s nothing better than wrapping yourself in a large, soft beach towel and Abyss and Habidecor’s Portofino versions are just the ticket. White-centred with coloured trim, they are handmade in Portugal from 100 per cent Egyptian cotton. The company can also customise towels to match your yacht’s livery.


Artistic feast: Bernardaud plates

The famous French porcelain brand Bernardaud has cleverly collaborated with artists to bring high art to the table. Marc Chagall, Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel and the Campana brothers are just a few of the established artists involved. Sadly, I missed the limited edition Basquiat set but now have my eye on the Alexander Calder dinner plates.

£496 for a set of six,

Perfect placement: Anya Hindmarch seating planner

Anya Hindmarch’s leather seating planner is a must-have for any host. Just scribble on the guests’ names and then create the ideal seating arrangement. These come in a choice of colours and can be personalised with your or your vessel’s name.


Half board: Baker Street Boys serving boards

The Connect serving boards by Baker Street Boys were originally designed for serving French baguettes. The idea was for a board that can be connected to prepare or serve food and then split for storage. I love mixing oak, walnut and marble – this makes a great gift for a food enthusiast.

From £129,

Play stacks: Annie Morris sculpture

Make your saloon pop with London-based artist Annie Morris’s pigmented ball stacks. These coloured sculptures are curiously tactile and fun while still giving a design edge.


Glass act: Birgit Israel glasses

Birgit Israel, the small London design boutique, sources interesting and unique furniture and accessories from all over the world. It also designs its own collections of handmade furniture using classic materials, such as piano lacquer, vellum and metal. Check out these limited edition hand-blown amber Murano glasses – it’s always a bonus when your friends can’t copy you.

£125 each,

Hot seats: Mattia Bonetti dining chair

Mattia Bonetti’s Palermo dining chairs, inspired by the Sicilian city, will make a statement at any table. Go for the lacquered beechwood for a nautical, holiday feel. Their magnificent curves will make them a design classic and add some sophisticated pizzazz. Available with a higher or lower back.


Lying in luxury: Marcel Wanders lounge chair

Instagram went into overdrive at Design Miami last year when Dutch designer Marcel Wanders’ unique lounge chair for Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection was unveiled. The chair can be reconfigured into three distinct pieces – chaise longue, lounge chair and pouffe – perfect for lying on deck and enjoying the sun.
