Sage and Clare

Sage and Clare-1-Design Crush

 

Sage and Clare is my kind of boho – global treasures that are handmade, soulful, and eclectic. Husband and wife duo Chris and Phoebe’s passion for color, texture, and objects with heart comes through with every piece. Serious about ethical practices, they spend months every year working side by side with weavers, block printers, and screen printers to bring Sage and Clare designs to life.

Let’s Talk Shelves

Kelly Beall-1-Design Crush

 

I despise the term shelfie, but I do love a well-styled set of shelves. I have three in my home that serve as both organizational epicenters and focal points. The built-in in my dining room (above) corrals favorite serving pieces and barware, along with a few other things like candleholders and glove molds. (Trays, party decor, and other odds and ends live in the cupboard underneath.) The freestanding set on wheels that resides in the kitchen holds most of my cookbooks, a collection of vases, and stacks of white dinnerware and glasses that I pull out for entertaining. And lastly, the shelves in my living room show off most of my books. (I want to get away from the organization by color, but haven’t been able to let go just yet!)

What’s your stance on shelves? Do you like them stacked full or sparse?

There’s a sweet woven bench in my entryway, but not near as sweet as these pieces by Peg Woodworking. Each piece is handmade in Brooklyn by Kate Casey using local and non-toxic lumber, natural oil sealants, and all natural cotton cord. A wooden or metal frame is anchors handwoven designs of geometric patterns that form the seat.

Chris Earl

Chris Earl-1-Design Crush

 

Chris Earl‘s upbringing in Papua New Guinea instilled in him a respect for creating objects to fulfill a purpose, create a story, and build community. He puts it all into play in his line of furniture, tabletop, and ceramics where that trifecta is the guiding light. Functional, graceful, and timeless.

Layer

Layer-1-Design Crush

 

Like to change up your decor as often as you change your clothes? South Korean industrial designer Sohyun Yun has created a chair – Layer – made out of clear acrylic. It’s entirely customizable, inspired by our consumerist society where people buy things then quickly discard them once something new comes along.

SACKit

SACKit-1-Design Crush

 

I definitely had a beanbag chair growing up, it was pastel green to match one of the colors in the tribal design of my comforter. (Eep.) And to be honest I wouldn’t mind having a few for extra seating as an adult. I especially love these ones from SACKit, because a bit of a back would definitely come in handy in my mid-30s and the addition of a footrest makes them seem extra special.
