Mexican artist and designer Joel Escalona has created 10 objects that challenge the laws of equilibrium. These bowls are one of them. They are beautiful and make me uncomfortable at the same time.
Haptic Lab designed the Galileo Quilt featuring the night sky as it appeared on Galileo’s birthday in 1564 from his hometown of Pisa. Yes, please.
I love oddly shaped rugs. This large one is stunning. Comes in other shapes as well. Want!
This black trunk would make for a cool nightstand or use two next to each other for a coffee table.
Not sure what triggered my sudden rug obsession but this one, by Turkish designer Begüm Cana Özgür is a visual gem.
Not sure what story I would make up in my mind if someone handed me one of these Random Porcelain Cups printed with unpredictable numbers. I would most certainly not be able to remember my number at a party. Made me chuckle.
What a stunning (and pricy) rug. Hand-knotted and hand-woven by Doshi Levien.
At a dinner party a few weeks ago my neighbors listed the five best products they bought in 2017. Without hesitation, they started raving about these linen sheets called Parachute. As someone who has never spent a lot of money on sheets, I was surprised at the excitement and enthusiasm that oozed out of both of my neighbors, especially as they are more the quiet, reserved types. Their love for these sheets was palpable. So much, that I spontaneously bought a set after I got home, even though they are super duper pricy. Granted, the 3 glasses of wine might have had something to do with it.
A few days later the sheets arrived. The moment of truth was here! And the verdict: They are F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. They feel a tiny bit rough, but in a good way. I admit, I am excited to go to bed because of my sheets. And, yes, I do sound like a bored suburban housewife by talking about how much I love my sheets. BUT I REALLY DO!
I admit though, I can’t get over how much I paid for them. They better last a loooooong time! Also, yes, adulting hard!
I’ve had a pretty remarkable a few days in Los Angeles this past weekend and felt like I got to see a glimpse of the magic that’s inside of me, coming into my true power. I had to chuckle when I found this banner just now. They got it from a Frances Hodgson Burnett quote:
“No one smiled. They were all too much in earnest. Colin’s face was not even crossed by a shadow. He was thinking only of the Magic.
‘Then I will chant,’ he said. And he began, looking like a strange boy spirit. ‘The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the Magic. The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me. It is in me – it is in me. It’s in every one of us.’…”
These leaf shaped serving plates made my heart jump a little when I saw them in a store in LA last weekend. How stunning are these? Hat tip to the designer, Nao Tamura.
These candles by Area Ware are stunningly sculptural. Don’t think I could get myself to lighting them.
This Planter by Area Ware is a beauty. The design discretely integrates both a planter and saucer into one form. Lift out the bottom ring to reveal a hidden saucer.
