Købn Towels

 

I’ve never seen a beach towel I would happy hang on my wall, but then I met Købn. Sophie Matson’s line of towels are designed with interior trends in mind rather than beach vibes. They feature fringey edges, drop pile stripes, and the prettiest muted color palette.

ZAKKIA

 

Australia has so much fantastic art and design happening at any given moment. ZAKKIA is on a mission to make the world a more beautiful place through good design, all of it crafted by hand. The Sydney-based studio was founded by former Swede Sara Lundgren, and it’s the place where the design she grew up around and her love of materials meet. The makers behind ZAKKIA’s wares are all family-owned studios located mostly in Vietnam as well as a few in India.

The material is really the guiding force behind many of our designs. Our inspiration often comes from a material’s texture, or thinking about using a material in a way that hasn’t been done before. You will never find anything fussy about our designs. We find beauty in function and we always try to design products that can be used in multiple ways in many rooms of your home.

March Favorites

1/ Birthday Box: Twenty Birthday Cards
This box of twenty birthday cards created by five different artists has saved my butt not once, but twice this month alone. Every single one is gorgeous and printed on thick paper stock, so it won’t look like you forgot to pick up a card.

2/ Case Study Table Top Diamond with Wood Stand
I adore Case Study’s ceramics and own about five of their planters. This one is the perfect size for a kitchen table or countertop.

3/ Petit Collage 5pc Mealtime Set (Dinosaurs)
Petit Collage offers the best modern designed children’s toys and decor, and it’s al sustainably made. I picked up a few things for two of my cousins’ birthdays this month, including this mealtime set. Get 15% off your purchase with code DESIGNCRUSH.

4/ Kristen Ess The One Signature Shampoo and Conditioner
I took some travel sizes of these along when I had to travel last month and really fell in love with the way they made my hair feel. The scent is more powerful than most hair products I’ve tried, but I don’t dislike it and feel like it helps cover any second day hair smell.

5/ MyChelle Lip Hints
These conditioning lip balms have been valuable players in keeping my dry winter lips moisturized. The light tints are a nice added bonus.

6/ Sqwishful Pop Up Sponges
These guys are 100% renewable plant-based, 100% biodegradable, and compressed to reduce their carbon footprint. And they come in a fun shape.

7/ Striped Knit Crop Jumpsuit
Wish you could wear your pajamas all day? Get this jumpsuit. Not only does it make you look super pulled together, but I guarantee lots of compliments will follow. (Note: I’m 5’2″ and it fits to my ankles, not cropped.)

Omoshiro Block

 

The Omoshiro Block – or fun block – uses laser-cutting technology to create what is a hidden object in disguise. At first glance it’s just a square cube of notepaper, but as the paper is used an object begins to appear! Make your way through all of the paper to excavate it.

Xenia Taler

 

Xenia Taler‘s casually refined lifestyle goods have an undeniable signature look that draws you right in. My favorite pieces in her shop at the moment is this collection of geometric incense holders that are handmade in Canada. Each one has a cork bottom to protect surfaces and wipes clean with a cloth.
