Rem lamp, Christian Vivanco
Industrial designer Christian Vivanco's philosophy is that "objects exist not only to satisfy necessities, but also to create sparks within the soul of those who observe them, of those who use them and enjoy them." Well, the Rem lamp is a perfect combination of form and function, and it has certainly sparked something in my soul. Plus, it's powder blue and brown, one of my favorite color combos.
Waxed Cotton Cap, Outlier
My friend Simon tipped me off on this item. He thinks $60 is a little spendy for this cap, but I totally think it's worth it. The hats are double lined and made of water resistant waxed cotton fabric, meaning your head is protected from wind and rain. Plus, just look how hot the guy in the photo looks in this hat. In fact, I'll take the guy and the hat!
Amsterdam Classic, Electra
I love, love, love this bike. I actually have last year's edition in red. Oh, and I added a basket, bell and cup holder to mine.

These adorable favors are a throw back to junior high. The best part is that they are personalized with questions about the couple getting hitched.

Peter Dunham and Linnea Gits are the creative geniuses behind Binth, a Chicago-based screen-printing company, that produces some lovely prints, posters, stationary and products for the home. The latest product added to the Binth catalogue are small, graphic alphabet prints, which were inspired by Mid-Century Danish wood toys. While the folks at Binth suggest you use the letters to spell out your child's name - I, being the childless woman that I am, recommend that you spell out your own name. No point on missing out on good design just because you're sans kids!
Tropical Feather Earrings, otterbody
As a renter I appreciate the power of the decal. My landlords have given me permission to paint my walls, so long as I paint them the boring shade of beige that they deem acceptable. Enter the decal, the perfect way to spice up the walls of any apartment!
