cave collective

and while we're on the topic of hand-made and textural pieces, how gorgeous are these fiber wall hangings from cave collective?
and the super soft color palette? pure love. enjoy!

local & lejos

local & lejos offers uncommon goods, good you just won't find in common retail stores. local & lejos scours the globe for special pieces, hand-made by local artisans and then brings them all together to help enrich your home with meaning...
local & lejos is design with intention. in english, local is defined as "pertaining to a community nearby, or belonging to a neighborhood." lejos, in spanish, is defined as "pertaining to a place that is far away, or far in the distance." so what local & lejos does is "brings homegoods to your home from far away places while supporting the artisans that crafted them."

from the colorfully woven bowls (many from rwanda that take 2 days to make!), to the soft serape blankets made in guatemala, to the elegantly block-printed napkins from india, each piece feels as if you've found a treasure. they are special. the people that made them are special. local & lejos is, well, very special too. enjoy!

urban design, in metal

i like this metal seating and table line offered up by the french company tf urban...
commercial spaces, cafes, art museum outdoor seating areas, urban park areas, open college or school campus areas, there are so many gathering spaces where this line would be eye catching, colorful and just fun. just saying...enjoy!

monday & lcd

i hope that you had an amazing weekend friends! i wanted to share a few fun items that i'm currently wishing for from venice california-based lcd...
lcd was founded in 2012 by former music exec geraldine chung and supports finding an eclectic mix of independent designers from around the globe with what she calls "likeminded attitude, a unique point of view and quality craftsmanship."

i really like lcd, it's a little bit punk, a little bit funk, with a polished high end finish. pieces are unique, unusual and slightly edgy. you would feel like a rockstar in any of lcd's clothing choices. and i WANT that today! enjoy!

sunday & wastin' time

i'm lately really loving the solo work by peter wolf (remember j geils band?). he began his artistic career as a painter (admitted to the boston musuem school of fine arts) then jumped on stage one day at a loft party to sing, and says he was "transfixed", that it was a "born-again type of experience." those moments in life are what we all wait for right?

oh, and he's currently touring, if you are liking this as much as i am. enjoy!

have a sweet weekend!

yeah for the weekend! do you have fun plans?
i've been slowing it down this week, reading, sewing, getting outside, ALOT. trying to suck up these summer days/moments in every way imaginable. sometimes you have to force yourself to live slowly, to look around you, to smell the outdoors, to feel things that you sometimes take for granted. that's been my goal this week. yeah!

i'm almost finished with this book, so good! this intrigues me too and might be my next summer read. what are you reading these days? i'd love to hear! in between sipping rosé wine this weekend, i might check out some of these podcasts. have you become a podcast junkie? i bet it's easy to once you find some gems?

and it's friday! hooray! so some fun finds from around the world wide web?
