Panama Banana

 

The unofficial start of summer is finally here, and it’s time to take advantage of everything we dreamed of during those long winter months. Agota Rimsaite has designed the conceptual Panama Banana, a dual-purpose piece of furniture that’s meant for relaxing as well as playtime. Turn it one way and you’ll be relaxing in a hammock, flip it ninety degrees and you’ll have a soccer goal!

Memorial Day

Lavender Bee

Taking today off to spend time with friends and family as we thank all Americans who have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our country. I don’t take it for granted, even in the middle of this bonkers administration, we’re still oh so lucky.

Shinola Runwell Turntable

 

I’m not sure how I’ll made due with my little turntable after seeing this one from Shinola. The Runwell Turntable was created as a limited run of 500 units and is absolutely WOW. It’s the Detroit-based company’s first audio endeavor – an American-made, solid aluminum, steel and wood, 2-speed belt-driven turntable featuring a modular phono pre-amp and a whole lot of oomph.

Rose 15 Ways

I suppose it’s part of my slow evolution into a Plant Lady that flowers work their way into my diet. With the exception of rose, I’m not sure any of the other petals I’ve eaten have had much flavor – more of a garnish situation I guess? This summer I’m anxious to work some more of this unexpected ingredient into everyday recipes to make them a little bit more special.

Roll-Out Table

 

THIS IS IT.

I’ve finally found the perfect table for the ever-entertaining host or hostess. Marcus Voraa‘s Roll-Out Table is beechwood crafted with a beeswax-treated surface, finished off with steel and canvas. The length of the table can be adjusted by sliding the end out and letting the tabletop follow, while the steel crank on the side is used to retract the length.

I wanted to try and represent the social arena that is the internet. The table is where we meet, get to know each other, discuss and share information in the real world. No matter whether it is around the dinner table, in the meeting room or at a conference, it is at the table where our parallel worlds meet, the physical and the digital.

What started as an end-of-year client thank you project by design studio Universal FavouriteComplements is now gauging interest in making their modular chocolates a for sale product. These tasty bites were created by combining 3D printing, design, and the help of Bakedown Cakery to make the flavor profiles like shortbread, blackcurrant, and fairy floss a reality. Wouldn’t you love to get your hands on a box?

Let’s Talk Chandeliers

Staggered Glass Chandelier

Lighting is perhaps the element I most look forward to when designing a room – the right finish, the perfect glow, everything comes together to set the mood in that just right way. Chandeliers in particular are the icing on the proverbial cake of decorating, and I don’t think they’re utilized often enough. Think past the dining room and entryway to the bathroom, the bedroom, and beyond to take any room to the next level.

OPUS Cycles

 

Though I don’t get out on my cruiser as often as I’d like, I’m forever ogling well-designed bicycles. My latest crushes are Ecce Cycles‘s OPUS carbon frame bikes. One is a cruiser, one is a sport, and one is electric – all three offering the perfect balance of function, style, and efficiency. And if you don’t ride, well, the design definitely qualifies as art!
