5 Important Things to Ask Yourself When Purchasing Leather Furniture

Katy - June 19th, 2017

The question inevitably arises when shopping for upholstered furniture: leather or fabric? If you choose leather, great, but that’s only the first step.

Nut Bombs: A Mid-Morning Snack from Nordic Light

Alice - June 19th, 2017

Nordic Light: Lighter, everyday eating from a Scandinavian kitchen, is a book to linger over. It’s two inspiring books in one: a photo essay and cookbook. The author, Simon Bajada, is an Australian native now based in Stockholm, and he brings fresh eyes to the subject.  His recipes feature ingredients favored by Scandinavian cooks.  Happily, many of those ingredients are readily available […]

As we stock up on antihistamines, sunscreen and bug spray, gearing up for Summer, we’re also dreaming about our favorite ways to relax in the out-of-doors. So what makes an ideal outdoor oasis?

Graf Lantz: German + Japanese Design

Katy - April 12th, 2017

From the moment I experienced products by Graf Lanz, I was intrigued and infatuated — first with the texture of the soft Merino wool, then by the simple perfection of the designs. Where did these stunning pieces come from? Who made them? And can I buy them all? I decided to dig deeper. Holger Graf […]

A fresh year is finally here. And we are thinking about products we expect to take off in 2017.

There is plenty of modern style, exceptional comfort and functional technology to go around in 2017! […]

Boom! Art!

Boom! Art!

Easy Ways to Freshen Your Home for 2016

Katy - January 6th, 2016

New Year’s Day makes me crave change. I tend to spend this relaxing holiday at home. This year I looked around my house, and I started to feel a need for a design reset. Maybe it’s the large amount of time I spend inside during the winter, or the fact that I’ve been binge watching “Fixer Upper” on […]
