Inspired by the colors and textures of South American craftsmanship, Diseño’s owner travels to the region a few times a year to purchase treasures for his shop. It's a unique source for Latin design in the Boston area, and the wares incorporate a certain warmth and closeness to nature in their sophisticated styles. Vegetarians, be forewarned: the store is chock-full of furniture and throws made of supple leather and animal hides from the Argentinean plains. A cowhide cube ottoman ($399) in natural or dyed colors (like lime green!) is a playful addition to the living room, while the sleek Testa sofa ($3,999) offers contemporary seating in top-grain leather. Less animalistic are the recycled wood tables ($239-$499) made of 100-year-old pinotea wood reclaimed from old factories in Buenos Aires. Also suitable for herbivores is the wide selection of lighting and accessories, including colorfully glazed dishware ($10-$199), a Mexican Onyx table lamp ($400) and vintage wool textiles from the north of Argentina ($99-$300). 409 Harrison Ave, South End, Boston (617-423-2008, disenobos.com)
