Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Products on Monday 9 December 2013

Stormy lampshade: bring the outdoors inside

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Products on Wednesday 3 July 2013

The recent fashion trend of wearing strangely photographic patterns such as galaxy and cloudy sky prints is kind of tacky yet awesome. This stormy sky lampshade is the more sophisticated version of the trend I’ve seen yet. It’s all the cool of clean design mixed with the splendor of storm clouds beginning to brew. Designed by Young and Battaglia, this handmade […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Products on Friday 28 June 2013

Let’s face it: the Manoteca Indoor Table is incredibly manly yet stylish and highly functional. Why waste space on both a dining room table and a desk when you’ve got a world to save, a mountain to climb, a cave to explore, a bear to wrestle, or some other super macho activity? You don’t have extra […]
