Sonos and Ikea created a collaborative line of speakers. One of which is also a lamp.

People Matter, Real Life Matters

This vulnerable talk by Grace Bonney hit me in the heart. In it she speaks on the last 15 years of running Design*Sponge and why 2019 will be her final year. She unpacks the noteworthy lessons she’s learned along the way and what truly matters even in this digital age.
