This home/accessory/lifestyle store is the perfect blend of funky and chic. From the lamb’s-wool–covered chrome stools to the cute beaded clutches, Elements’ items are for those looking to make an elegant statement. The quirkiest item? A decorative, porcelain skull—handmade in Germany and priced at about $2,000—that can best be described as Hamlet haute. There’s even a cozy espresso bar in the back.
