Quartz Movement

The late decorator Tony Duquette made rock-crystal votives fashionable more than a decade ago—and this season interior designers are making the look chic all over again. "Jon McCoy made them for us for a winter ball we did for Danielle Steel in San Francisco," says Duquette's business partner Hutton Wilkinson, who will launch a furniture line next year. Duquette's votives are now impossible to find (his estate was sold at Christie's in 2001), but McCoy still produces the quartz clusters, which resurfaced at the recent Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York. We spotted the candles in white, amethyst, and amber in every other room. $250–$295. At Homer, 212-744-7705.
