Pen UNO

 

Don’t you just love the feeling of finding the perfect pen? One that sails across paper, won’t smear, and hopefully doesn’t run out of ink too quickly. I’m anxious to try out Pen UNO, a sleek and minimal aluminum pen available in five colors – space grey, gold, rose gold, red, and black. It uses a Hi-Tec C Coleto gel ink cartridge which is widely available online in a variety of colors and line-weights.

Fan Yang-Tsung

 

As ready as I am for autumn (SO READY), I’m also basking in the last few weeks of summer. Enjoying extra time outside and not letting the longer days pass by feels extra important right now, and the paintings of Fan Yang-Tsung seem to put those emotions on canvas. Swimming pools, carwashes, airports, and more capture it all.

ABLE Denim

The Jacket – Merly Wash

One of my favorite brands – fashionABLE – just released its first line of denim! I’m pumped to say the least, because I know ABLE denim will serve to create more job opportunities for women while remaining ethically sound. They’re starting with ten denim staples in a few different washes that are full of comfort, quality, and style and the line will expand from there. I can’t wait to see what’s next because this is an amazing start! (Free shipping today and tomorrow in celebration!)

10 Exceptional Rugs

LRNCE

When is a floor rug more than a floor rug? When it’s a work of art that happens to be underfoot! Today’s textile artisans are doing an incredible job of taking one of the world’s oldest professions and making it their own, whether it’s sticking to age-old techniques or developing modern designs. These ten rugs are real stunners!

Claire Sherman

 

It’s all about tones in the paintings of Claire Sherman. I love the way the New York-based artist uses thick swaths of oil paint on canvas to create outdoor landscapes teeming with unseen energy and life. Claire’s use and understanding of color is just next level.

Virginie Morgand

 

I don’t always gravitate towards bright primary colors, but the illustrations of French artist Virginie Morgand have me doing about-face. A good amount of her portfolio revolves around the pool and beach – whether it’s synchronized swimmers, sunbathers, or surfers – and matches that end of summer vibe perfectly.

μcapsmic / A Vision of Cosmos

 

Artist μcapsmic takes the seemingly ordinary – spray paint nozzles – and quite literally reveals another world within. In A Vision of Cosmos a world is explored where the naturally clogged nozzles, untouched by human hands, become small-scale universes in their own right. See the video in its entirety below.

Designer Baking Food Stamps

 

At this point these Designer Baking food stamps are only a concept, but wouldn’t you love to see them realized? The quote “bread and olive” led STUDIOLAV to design this set of stamps made out of solid olive wood, the iconic fabric patterns Pied de Poule and Tweed Herringbone transforming your bread, cookies, and pies into small haute couture baking marvels one stamp at a time.
