YLiving's product manager shares her favorite designs

A modern design devotee, YLiving's product manager Karen Nepacena has honed her eye after years of working in the design industry. She recently moved with her family into a Joseph Eichler San Francisco Bay Area home and is busy outfitting rooms in décor that's true to its midcentury roots. Nepacena scoured YLiving, focusing mostly on "common areas where we spend time as a family and entertain," she explains. "I looked for things that are sturdy but are designed with intent."

Saarinen Oval Dining Table from Knoll Cow Sending Animals Wooden Furniture from Seletti Sunburst Clock from Vitra

Saarinen Oval Dining Table from Knoll

"Our Eichler was built in 1959, so I love bringing in pieces that were originally designed for use in homes like ours. The elegant tulip base and clean lines are stunning, plus it can seat up to six."

Cow Sending Animals Wooden Furniture from Seletti

"Not every piece needs to be serious and this just shouts fun. I am drawn to the craftsmanship and natural crate wood, which gives it a down-to-earth feeling. I would put this in the kitchen and use it to display my collection of vintage creamers and white ceramic dishes."

Sunburst Clock from Vitra

"Its cheery colors and true midcentury design makes this a must-have in an Eichler!"

I-Wares I-Teapot from Seletti Spear Tray from Ferm Living Sputnik Chandelier from Robert Abbey

I-Wares I-Teapot from Seletti

"I enjoy collecting vintage pieces and then giving them new life. This teapot is a mix of old and new and that pop of yellow makes it so fabulous."

Spear Tray from Ferm Living

"Form and function at work! This is a great decorative accent, but it's also highly practical. It's the perfect tray for serving tea or as a decorative touch on my vintage Nils Jonsson credenza."

Sputnik Chandelier from Robert Abbey

"My first design job was as a lighting buyer and I've always wanted one of these. It's sophisticated, yet nods to the classic atomic burst of the 1950s. It would look terrific over the Saarinen dining table."

"I looked for things that are sturdy but are designed with intent."

Child's Womb Chair from Knoll Funny Pink Blanket from Missoni Home Pod Crib from Ubabub

Child's Womb Chair from Knoll

"We have two young boys and it's always a challenge to find children's furniture that has a modern aesthetic, but is also great quality. This does the trick."

Funny Pink Blanket from Missoni Home

"I've always been drawn to bright, bold colors; the fuchsia and orange make a great statement on a sofa and will be perfect for curling up there on movie night."

Pod Crib from Ubabub

"Even babies love modern design! I like the sleek shape and use of renewable timber plywood and non-toxic finishes."

Zen Soaking Tub from Neptune WUD Plate from David Rasmussen

Zen Soaking Tub from Neptune

"Eichler homes were built with a lot of wood paneling and detail so this would fit in perfectly. I love the wood grain of the tub skirt mixed with the modern white base. "

WUD Plate from David Rasmussen

"I enjoy entertaining and this is right up my alley. The natural wood and fluorescent color combination would make for a really nice food presentation."
