River stones automatically cultivate a Zen-like calm, and this pebble ottoman is having the same effect. Crafted from hand-woven boiled wool, the stool evokes foggy mornings, lapping water, and quiet beaches full of stripey-smooth pebbles. Throw in a cup of tea and some sheepskin moccasins to complete the illusion. $425 from Susan Fredman at Home.
