Fishs Eddy always pulls together some fantastic collaborations that capitalize on both parties and their notable combined expertise. This time they’ve teamed up with Wayne White to create a series of nine fiberglass serving trays featuring some of his distinctive text-based paintings. Any one of them would make a great addition to any art lovers home.

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?

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.

Bonnie and Neil

Bonnie and Neil-Design Crush

 

I first came across Australian textile design studio/duo Bonnie and Neil about a year ago, and it gave me butterflies. Their vibrant range of home products incorporate botanicals, bright patterns, and an occasional nod to Australiana culture, with designs influenced by their surroundings and a love of color. My favorites though are Bonnie and Neil’s plate collection (get in my cupboard already!).

AURA

Aura Home-1-Design Crush

 

More good things coming to us by way of Australia, this time in the form of AURA by Tracie Ellis. High quality homewares inspired by years of global meandering, my favorites of which are the stoneware ceramics for the kitchen. With plenty of brights and pastels to choose from they’ll mix seamlessly with whatever you’ve already got going on in your cabinets.

Studio Yama

Studio Yama-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve noticed lately that the more stress I’m experiencing, the more I look forward to a solid start to my day. Namely my morning cup of coffee. I make it a ritual of sorts – Chemex, quality beans, and just the right mug. The ceramic pieces of Studio Yama have caught my eye, with an aesthetic rooted in both Japanese and Swedish culture and design traditions their pieces strike a lovely balance of aesthetics.
