MIX&MATCH

MIX&MATCH-1-Design Crush

 

Sophisticated yet fun, the Mix&Match collection is a collaboration between GAN and ceramic artist Flavia Del Pra. Each of the nine designs of hand-crafted ceramic sit on a copper-plated aluminum base. Serve drinks for cocktail hour, enjoy breakfast in bed, or use one for any other number of purposes – even just to bring a little pattern into a room.

All Things Coffee

Maybe you’ve noticed the days getting shorter, or your kiddos are headed back to the classroom, or you just really love the stuff *raises hand*. It doesn’t feel like a day has truly begun until I’ve had a big mug of coffee. During the week I’m usually in a rush to get started working so I stick to standard drip in my Cuisinart, but when I have more time on the weekend to make coffee a ritual I opt for my french press or Chemex. I’m curious – how do you make yours?

Let’s Talk Stairs

Art and Chic-Design Crush
Art and Chic

Let’s call staircases what they really are: a functional sculpture. If you live in a multistory home you’re lucky enough to have your very own. And while you might be thinking my staircase is definitely not a piece of art, there are plenty of ways to turn that on its head. Grab a can of paint – the most budget-friendly way to change most parts of your space – or lay down a rug for starters. Check out these ten traditional and modern flights for a dose of inspiration.

Abeego

Abeego-1-Design Crush

 

I reuse plastic food storage bags more than once, and admittedly sometimes plastic wrap as well. Since recently discovering Abeego I might not have to for much longer though. Abeego is a reusable beeswax-coated wrap that protects food and lets it breathe just like a lemon peel, onion skin, or cheese rind. The result is naturally fresher food. Each wrap is washable and will last up to a year when properly cared for.

It’s their newest version of the standard Burner No. 1, made with with powder coated aluminum, solid copper or solid brass cubes, and corian and can hold either incense sticks or cones.
