KITCHIBE is a brand of room fragrances created through a three-way collaboration between Shiono Koryo, a Japanese fragrance company with a lengthy history, Housen-gama, a producer of traditional Mino ceramics, and Qurz Inc., a company founded by the designer Takumi Shimamura. They offer six marbled, modern diffusers and six scents that evoke different aspects of Japanese culture.
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.
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.)
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‘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.
CEILI AIR is meant to hang from the kitchen ceiling, bringing air filtration and dehumidification to one of the most popular rooms of the house. The height from which it hangs can be adjusted, and a light on the lower portion offers some space-saving ambiance. Fingers crossed that this student project becomes a reality.
