Perusing ICFF 2019 in NYC

When I first attended ICFF about a bajillion* years ago, I remember it being SOOO epic; so unattainable. This year, I had a totally different experience. It seemed edited & intimate; fresh, yet livable. Not that there wasn’t editorial-worthy content, it just wasn’t quite as outlandish (or pervasive) as years past. I didn’t feel like the products were designed for an exclusive, haughty club, but rather, just designed to be kinda great. And they were.

*Technically, 1996 is slightly less than a bajillion years ago. Only just….

 

 

In the Clouds

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.

Impressive Letterpress

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!)

Put Yer Feet Up!

I’m on a mission to find a new coffee table for my living room. I want something cool looking, but not weird; practical, but not boring – not too big, not too small. It’s a tough decision, as there are sooooo many good options out there! Here’s a sampling of contenders… (As always, click to shop)
