Blocked In

I love lighting. Period. Not because it, well, lights things. But because there are some really awesome fixtures out there that can add a unique or architecturally interesting element to a room. This pendant would look fabulous in an odd grouping over a kitchen island with curvy chairs (to balance out all the structure). (-Allie)

Lazy Daze

It’s sunny here in Seattle (finally). And this daily obsession provides the main ingredient for my ideal sunny-day recipe: hammock + sunny sky + slight breeze + margarita = happy me. All that this fatboy is missing is a cup holder. Perhaps I’ll get to work on the prototype… (-Allie)

Cock-a-doodle DO

I love summer entertaining — so I love bringing in fun dinnerware to bring those meals to the next level. How cute are these chicken plates? (-Allie)

Grill Time!

My boyfriend and I have been considering getting a bbq grill for some summer entertaining. The problem? One of us cares more about function; the other, fashion. (Can you guess which is which?) While he’s eying top-of-the-line Webers, my suggestion would be more along the lines of these adorably colorful tabletop beauties. Sadly I think I know who’s going to win this argument… (-Allie)

A Wirey Situation

Side tables need not be boring wood squares with the sole purpose of holding table lamps and the occasional cup of tea. I’m a firm believer that each piece of furniture in your home should also serve an aesthetic purpose–and side tables are a great option for bringing in an artistic element. This curvey, wirey table are one fab way to do that. (-Allie)
