Fans of live edge, rejoice! Rustic Trip is an Etsy shop that specializes in creating furniture pieces (like headboards, tables and the like) out of enormous slabs of live edge wood. Yes, they’re spendy – but sooooo gorgeous!
How cute are these cloud-shaped soaps from Vice & Velvet in Melbourne, Australia? Each weighs a hefty 140g and come individually packaged in a fabulous sliding box. With ingredients like organic green tea, organic white sesame oil and Dead Sea mud.
Our handmade soaps are crafted using the traditional cold process method with at least 50% olive oil. Due to the nature of making small, individual batches by hand, every cloud soap we create is unique. Vegan-friendly. Free from palm oil, parabens, mineral oils, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate, synthetic dyes/pigments or fragrances.

I’m currently obsessed by this amazing cane + bentwood chair by German designer Michael Thonet! It’s called the Era Chair (1859), and it’s been in continuous production for more than 150 years. On a mission to find some vintage ones…
One of my all time favorites! Egg Press is a greeting card company, design studio and letterpress print shop based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 1999, they are considered one of the pioneers in the resurgence of letterpress printing. They’re often noted for a sophisticated color palette, hand drawn illustrations, all-over textile inspired patterns, and sense of humor. They design and produce all of their greeting cards and small-batch textiles in-house. (All cards are $5.50/each or $17.50/box 6 – As always, click to shop!)
Love these gentle ceramic pieces from Barcelona’s Maevo Studio.
Maevo designs and creates unique ceramic objects, made by hand. My process involves mixing different types of clays and minerals to produce one of a kind objects inspired by nature and the soft sedimentary layers that make up our landscape.
Amazing – handcrafted furniture that’s not only beautifully designed, but not unspeakably spendy. Moderncre8ve is located in Cleveland Ohio, and specializes in Modern and Midcentury Modern hardwood furniture. All pieces are handmade one at a time, using locally sourced hardwood lumber from Amish country, as well as steel made in the Cleveland area. (As always, click to shop!)
Moderncre8ve’s philosophy harkens back when to when we were young. Our dad built our first house from the ground up, and built all of our furniture when we were kids. Growing up in this enviroment instilled in us early on that furniture is something that should not only serve a function and form; but be something that is timeless, beautiful, and most importantly; something that is made with love and care.
You may have seen the Instagram eye candy produced by England’s Julia by the Sea, but have you noticed her perfectly crafted tea pics? So lovely, they have this coffee-lover tempted to brew up a pot of earl gray.
Darling Clementine is a small Norwegian design agency that also offers an edited collection of products under the banner: “Darling Clementine Paper Empire” (love that moxie!). I am totally charmed by their scandinavian aesthetic, and ability to create work that is clearly modern yet gives a warm nod to tradition. They also write a nice blog that you can visit by clicking HERE.
