WICKET FUN

It includes top-of-the-line balls and mallets, cast-iron wickets, championship flags and other accouterments of the game, all housed in a solid mahogany cabinet. $5,000; jaquesamerica.com

ARTFUL TRIBUTE 
Paying homage to Portugal’s traditional painted tiles, the Azulejo III guitar by Malabar Emotional Design combines music and fine art in a bright and colorful way. This rendition of Portugal’s uniquely shaped Fado guitar is hand-painted and varnished to create the illusion of a tiled surface. $2,520; malabar.com.pt/azulejo-iii-guitar.html

PERFECT TIMBRE
Cube Speakers, designed and fabricated by Richmond-based Fern & Roby, are made of heart pine salvaged from a late-19th-century Virginia factory. The base comes from scrap generated in the company’s own workshop. The interior is engineered for optimal sound. $1,150. fernandroby.com
