Wander the World with House of Rym

Take these global home goods for a spin

The last time you hit Tunisia and Denmark in one sitting, you were elbow-deep in a Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego marathon.

Searching for global goods in real life? Look no further than House of Rym.

The home decor site is from a talented, far-flung foursome: Tunisia-based couple Rym Tounsi (a marketing guru) and Zied Youssef (an interior decorator) and Switzerland-based designers/bloggers Anna Backlund and Elisabeth Dunker.

Pieces blend the best of both worlds. Ottomans made from reworked vintage kilims and wonderfully whorled serving utensils rep top-notch Tunisian craftsmanship, while handwoven linen blankets and fairy-tale-esque paper prints put Nordic quirk front and center.

Mixing mod yellow saucers with a handmade wood sugar bowl might not come naturally, but the effects are stunning — and affordable.

You might just call it a steal.

Available at houseofrym.com, $8-$1,490.
