Established in 1946, Saikai has always been known for their artfully crafted and functionally designed porcelain. The company has since expanded to produce simple and modern homewares. I love the brass pieces which elevate common home goods into things of sculptural utility.
Just in time for the start of cooler fall weather, a gorgeous nail oil set from Uka made with organic ingredients like lavender, vanilla, and orange mixed with wheat germ, sweet almond, and jojoba seed oils. I love this set, time stamped as a reminder to apply, with a kick of perfectly timed aromatherapy to boot, but you can purcahse each seperately as well.
My husband, Paul Mezey is a New York based independent film producer who has made a career out of telling stories that dissect and celebrate out humanity. His newest film Beach Rats, directed by Eliza Hittman, was awarded Best Director honors at Sundance last January. It opened last weekend in New York and Los angeles to rave reviews, with wide release across the country in the coming weeks. Harrison Dickinson is brilliant. He is already the name on everyones lips. (photo credit: Tayarisha Poe)
Los Angeles-based artist-turned-designer Hannah Byun created Hansel from Basel in 2007 as a way to apply a sense of much-needed zest to everyday legwear. Originally inspired by Hannah’s childhood nickname (“Hansel”) and her fascination with Switzerland (therefore “from Basel”), the collection finds inspiration from the mundane to the magical.
Three-and-a-half hours north of Los Angeles, the Happiest City in America is tucked away on California’s Central Coast, with sprawling Pacific coastline to the south and rolling green hills to the north. This eclectic town, with a population just under 50,000, is made up of a variation of folks, including long-time locals, families, retirees, young professionals and Cal Poly SLO and Cuesta college students. Pack your hiking shoes, bathing suit, jeans and jacket (it gets chilly at night!) and grab some friends to experience the beauty of the Central Coast.
From the brand that brings us gorgeous linen sheets, towels, and clothing, a homeware collection that is every bit as covetable. Made from the highest quality raw materials and designed with a modernist aesthetic that is at once practical and organic, Fog Linen Home collection is a stand out from the crowded field of small batch design.
