Galanter & Jones Launches the Heated, Indoor/Outdoor Kosmos Chair

San Francisco-based Galanter & Jones are the geniuses behind, well, keeping your behind warm in the great outdoors. They’re continually growing their collection of heated outdoor furniture and the latest addition is the Kosmos Chair. The modern chair is the first in a series that can be used indoors or out that launches at a lower price point. Now that it’s officially winter, getting cozy in a chair that also keeps your warm sounds like a great way to spend evenings outdoors with your friends.

Kosmos offers the same comfort and functionality of their original pieces, but this time at a more affordable price and quicker shipping. The powder coated stainless steel base comes in your choice of Brass, Black, or Silver, with a standard charcoal cast stone seat and standard length plug.

The sleek new design doesn’t look like your standard outdoor chair offering, which not only elevates your patio decor, it means it works indoors as well. The chair’s temperature is adjustable and comes plug-in ready so you can fire it up anytime you want to warm up.

An Early Victorian Cottage Is Renovated by WALTER&WALTER

An Early Victorian Cottage Is Renovated by WALTER&WALTER

WALTER&WALTER renovated an early Victorian cottage in Melbourne, Australia, by rethinking the traditional layout and concentrating on making the most of every room. House SE keeps its Victorian facade on the front while getting a new modern rear facade that’s clad in a corrugated and perforated metal.

The renovation comprises affordable materials right off the shelf, which helped keep costs and lead times down on the project.

The compact footprint resulted in a hallway on one side that connects the rooms but keeps them separate. It also keeps the sight line open from the front door straight through to the back doors. Sliding doors that match the siding close for additional privacy.

The perforated sliding doors allow light and fresh air to penetrate the interior while also adding a layer of privacy.

The kitchen is kept minimal with subtle wooden cabinets on the lowers and black cabinets against black walls above.

A narrow skylight runs along the ceiling on one side bringing natural light to the middle part of the interior, which typically doesn’t get a lot of light.

A tall, narrow window on the back of the house mimics the skylight above visually increasing the size of the space.

In this episode of Clever, fashion designer Mary Ping was influenced at a young age by a stylish grandmother who taught her to sew. Always knowing she’d one day run her own label, she studied art at Vassar and worked in east London’s scene before founding her conceptual line, Slow and Steady Wins the Race, a living archive of wardrobe classics, reexamined. Not one to participate on the hamster wheel of trends, she prefers injecting social commentary and sartorial wit into her work. Plus, her photographic memory weirds people out. Listen:

A Plant-Adorned Mirror and Table by Bujnie

A Plant-Adorned Mirror and Table by Bujnie

Rybnik, Poland based Bujnie creates designs that incorporate plants and their latest two, Mirror Halo and Coffee Table Ovio, aim to seamlessly bring the green to your living space. Each piece brings triple duty, including a spot dedicated to housing a plant so you can have a bit of nature with you always. We’ve all heard the benefits of adding plants to your indoor space, from cleaning the air to releasing moisture, and these modern fixtures will help you do that and then some.

Mirror Halo is a wall-mounted, powder-coated stainless steel mirror with a shelf that holds a plant within a pre-made hole. Not only do you have a mirror to look at yourself in, there’s a shelf you can use to hold your small items, like your keys or a phone, along with the aforementioned plant. Plus the mirror reflects the image of the plant so it actually looks like you doubled the greenery in the space.

Coffee Table Ovio is split down the middle – one side offers a flat surface to rest your things, while the other side is made up of open slats where newspapers or magazines can be stored. Plus, there are three holes in different sizes that you can use to hold potted plants or a bowl of snacks if you prefer.


Perfectly Curated Tableware Compositions That Make Us Calm

Perfectly Curated Tableware Compositions That Make Us Calm

Bob and I are no strangers to platters. Sure we are most known for our out-of-the-box presentation, like hanging churros from giant clear parasols. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a beautiful arrangement of tableware.

With the holiday season comes a slew of gatherings… some intended to delight and surprise their guests at every turn, and others a pure showing of tradition and cozy familiarity. We are lucky, we get to create and experience both.

Here are a collection of photographs displaying overhead shots of vessel groupings. I find myself hypnotically attracted to these shots. The compositions combined with the perfectly curated material combinations are surprisingly soothing. Almost as if a meditation… a similar feeling comes over me when perusing

We invite you to use this collection as a way to gather your calm… or simply treasure these beautifully designed objects.

Happy Holidays! Wishing you all TASTE-ful and delicious gatherings!
