Affairs of the Heart

February 03, 1996|CYNDI Y. NIGHTENGALE

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it never hurts to show a little heart--to your significant other or around the house.

For instance, Elsa Peretti's Tiffany & Co. paperweight, with its simple, fluid lines, is an ideal accent for your home office. The paperweight ($30), made of cobalt crystal, is 4 inches wide.

The box, also by Peretti, with similar stylings to the paperweight, would spruce up the vanity in your bath or boudoir. It is available in sterling silver ($325, 3 1/2 inches wide), crystal ($52), cobalt crystal ($52) and black terra cotta ($45).

All of the furnishings can be found at Tiffany & Co., South Coast Plaza, in Costa Mesa.

Sweet Dreams

In addition to your heart, rest your soul on imported cotton sheets, available in the Chambers catalog.

With just a kiss of pink on a white background, the 220-thread-count set includes flat and fitted sheets, with two pillowcases (one with the twin set).

The sheets--in twin ($99), full ($149), queen ($159) and king ($179)--are trimmed with a row of white hemstitching.

Pajamas ($89, sizes small, medium and large), in the same heart pattern, and heart-of-gold soap ($19), with its citrus scent, enrich the entire experience.

Call the Chambers catalog at (800) 334-9790.

Earth Friendly

Show your love for the environment with the Nature Co.'s heart-shaped frame made of recycled aluminum.

The frame ($12, 5 by 5 1/2 inches) is manufactured from 100% recycled metal, salvaged from automobile, boat and airplane parts, as well as lampposts, mainframe computers and electric motor housings.

It is sand-cast and finished with a sheen.

The Nature Co. has stores in the Brea Mall and South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, you can order by calling (800) 607-7888.
