Love the simple, geometric shape in these dreamy colors. With plates like these you don’t need to fuss over much else on the table.
Nothing beats the feeling of leather, so with this it’s an extra treat when I finally find my keys at the bottom of my bag. I’m sure it will only get better as it gets more worn, too.
I wear a lot of city (read: black) clothes, so I love bringing something natural into an outfit. It’s like using a sisal rug in a formal living room, it just brings things back down to earth a little.
Anything celestial, I’m in! I find the night sky so poetic and intriguing, this ring has those qualities, too.
Just gorgeous. Not much else to say!
I’m a fan of the Lance Woven pillows: I love when a hearty material is treated delicately–here, beautifully woven and in the softest blue that goes great in my living room!
I’m a Leo…so I’m a sucker for lions!
It has the spirit of a found textile–that treasure from the bazaar.
Imagine serving soup in these–would it even matter how it tasted?? This star-shaped bowl is just the thing to shake up a table setting.
We’re featuring these in the April issue of House Beautiful. Old tradition, modern colors. Bring a little fun to a big, tall glass of water–they’re actually quite generous in size.
I’m as paperless as it gets, but I still love a good desk accessory like this modern paperweight.
