As we put the finishing touches on our expanded home department, within our new Flagship opening April 5, we wanted to share some of our favorite finds from our buying trip to New York earlier this month.
Let's take it from the Top . . .
1 - The William Table Lamp It's for sure super hip to be square with this table lamp. We love how the hard edges of the marble base are softened by the conventional roundness of the shade (which is gold lined as an extra nice bonus). William possesses just the right mix of tradition and modernism. And although marble is a huge home trend right now - we know you'll love this one forever.
2 - Copenhagen Candle Holder. We're so excited to bring the legendary home line Georg Jensen into the mix at our new Chestnut location. Jensen (and his firm) have always been someone we look to for inspiration. This over-sized pillar candle holder is certainly swoon worthy. I literally almost gasped when I saw it. The piece is sure to make a big statement where ever goes. One will be installed in our living room pronto.
3 - Cache Pots in Brass. It seems like the latest home accessory craze is alive. I mean literally. The houseplant is back from the 70s (thankfully without a pet rock in tow). And every great plant needs a great vessel. These from U.S. based design firm Hawkins New York more than fill that bill. And they have a bit of 70s glamour as well. And if living home accessories make you nervous - you can always throw some of your cooking utensils into one for a chic kitchen look. You can keep a wooden spoon alive, right?
4 - Memo Water Bottle with Leather Sleeve. You thought this was a hip flask, right? Well scale can be deceiving. It's actually the size of a lap top and in meant to hold enough water to keep you hydrated all day. These guys raised a boat load (no pun intended) of cash on kick starter for their line of seek refillable water containers. The slim size allows them to tuck ever so neatly into your briefcase or tote bag. And the leather case makes the whole thing incredibly handsome.
5 - Chrome Alligator Box This guy is a bit of a rerun because he was so beloved in the shop last fall. Maybe it is our nostalgia for the Lacoste shirts we wore as kids. Or maybe it is just a general fondness for any alligator that isn't real enough to snap your arm off. It's hard to say. But it's easy to see the appeal of this guy. He looks oh so cool on any dresser or console. Shiny and alluring. And it's up to you what precious cargo goes inside.
6 - Angelpoise Type 75 Desk Lamp - Margaret Howel Sea Grass Edition. We started this post with a lamp and we will end with one as well. But this one is for your desk. This light for sure casts a bit of mid-century glamour - can't you just see it in one of those smoky offices at Sterling Cooper Draper Price? And like Lane Price this one is very British. Anglepoise is a UK heritage lamp maker and this was their first product - Type 75 desk lamp. Thank London based designer Margaret Howel for the perfect green hue of this limited edition. And you open our office door in the new Chestnut space you'll see three of these puppies lined up along our common desk top.
