Guerrero Wedge

Guerrero Wedge-1-Design Crush

 

The Guerrero Wedge is an age old solution with a modern look. The sleek geometric shape and vibrant colors are just the solution I need for all of the wonky doors in my old home. Bonus: it’ll look just as good as a paperweight or objet on a shelf.

Little Korboose

Little Korboose-1-Design Crush

 

Little Korboose, the name a nod to modern architect Le Corbusier, is helmed by April Nemeth. The line draws on modern, minimalist design traditions, with a distinctively playful twist. My favorite pieces are dish towels, but be sure and check out the fun kid’s line as well.

Reiko Kaneko

Reiko Kaneko-1-Design Crush

 

I have a few lovely glazed pieces in my home, but recently I’ve found myself drawn to the look even more. Reiko Kaneko designs fine bone china in elegant, functional shapes; glassware and terracotta that is beautifully thin and light; and pure white china dipped in rich glazes. And I love that there’s constant experimentation in the studio with new reactive glazes!

Light and Ladder

Light and Ladder-1-Design Crush

 

Light and Ladder excels on one particular point that I consider in every purchase for my home – elevating the everyday through beauty and function. The Brooklyn-based design studio strives to create objects that are thoughtful, useful, and made to last through inspiration from simplicity of the natural world and the geometric lines of the modern city. I’d call the union a wild success.

The Versatility of a Good Throw

Snowe Home-1-Design Crush

 

January is not only the coldest, but the month demanding the highest level of coziness. Thankfully Snowe recently released the perfect throw blanket for the job. I’ve been carrying it from room to room for the past week as I work through my day, because it’s just that functional and versatile. It’s a great throw to curl up with during a nap, and the super luxe cashmere, merino lambswool. and silk feel as amazing as they sound.

I’ve been trying to get back into my reading groove in the new year. This throw is the perfect thing to curl up with in my favorite chair – just add a book and a steaming mug of tea! Not only does this beauty look seamless in my living room, it’s also static resistant so it attracts less… like my pups’ hair.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s ideal for curling up in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine. Just like all of Snowe‘s goods, it’s exceptionally made and thoughtfully designed. I’m looking forward to adding more of their pieces to my home over time.

Sideshow Press

Sideshow Press-1-Design Crush

 

Designer-owners Amy Pastre and Courtney Rowson are creating amazing things for desktop, tabletop, and travel. Within the past year or so I’ve become a massive fan of these ladies and what they’re doing over at Sideshow Press. Amy and Courtney believe in great design and craftsmanship for everyday products and are dedicated to working with remarkable materials and like-minded American manufacturers. All things I stand behind wholeheartedly. It doesn’t hurt that they know their way around a letterpress machine like a couple of bosses either.
