I walked by a furniture store in San Francisco yesterday and this giant green thing caught my eye. I walked in and simply asked “What is this?” “A lounge chair, the lady replied, very matter of fact!” Ah! Kyle who was traveling with me, immediately proceeded to fall into it. Can’t remember the last time a piece of furniture made me laugh this much. Pratone was designed in 1971 and is sold by Gufram.
This movie scene from Adaption made me gasp:
“You are what you love, not what loves you.
– Charlie Kaufman”
So much yes. YES!

Love these animated paper puppets by Japanese designer Haruki Nakamura.
The Pessimist’s Umbrella is for those who know that expecting the worst need not be cause for despair. The umbrella has a rainfall print on the inside, along with Seneca’s pessimistic aphorism: ‘What need is there to weep over parts of life? The whole of it calls for tears.’ Made me laugh.
Melissa Kaseman photographs the contents of her three-year-old son’s pockets as part of what she calls “a taxonomy report of a child’s imagination.” Beautiful!
Jon Burgerman is a friend, creative workspace neighbor, a Tattly artist and my son’s creative idol. His most recent book It’s Great to Create spurred many super creative adventures in my house. If you have little ones, I highly recommend grabbing a copy!
Being a fan of all things Burgerman, I was delighted to see my friend Bas Berkhout working on a mini documentary on Jon. It JUST went live. It’s personal and oh-so-timely. Watch above!
These playful architecture photos put the biggest smile on my face.
I am completely smitten by this collection of videos created by Dina Amin. On Fridays she picks a random product, disassembles it, examines it and makes a stop motion story with its parts. This is delightful!
