Last week’s Hotels, Lodging & Restaurants: Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin got us thinking about design in Texas; on our wish list of shops to visit is Spartan, which offers a range of not-seen-everywhere essentials (and nonessentials) for the home.

N.B. For a tour of owner Currie Person’s home, go to Design Sponge.

Above: A selection of domestic offerings, including the Raw Clock by Stanley Ruiz of solid maple, aluminum, and hand-cut leather; $230.

Above: Oddly appealing Spanish Wine Glasses; $6 each and only 2.25 inches tall (my most stylish friend in San Francisco uses these).

Above: Wood House Models from My House Party; "a small piece of modern perfection complete with low maintenance air plant and without a mortgage." Prices range from $12 to $26; contact Spartan for ordering information.

Above: Blown Glass Decanter and Cup; available in blue or clear glass for $62.

Above: Oak and Stainless Salad Servers; $21.
