Maison 24 now has an online store…and amongst all the cool stuff are these LOVE paperweights. Robert Indiana created the iconic LOVE design for a Museum of Modern Art Christmas card in 1964. This version is $75.
I came across Pigeon Toe Ceramics this morning via Daily Candy. As you can see the stuff is beautiful. I wish I’d found them before I’d done all my Christmas shopping.
I love this Library sign from Threepotatofour. It appeals to the book geek in me…and would make a lovely Christmas present.
Gorgeous Egyptian lights from Netherlands-based Le Souk…looks like they ship internationally.
Amy Helfand’s rugs really are works of art and she’s having an open studio and holiday sale (with a bunch of her friends) on Sunday, December 13 at 499 Van Brunt Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn. Well worth checking out if you are in the area.
I’m not sure about Lauren Bush – the family bothers me – but I do like the FEED project to fight world hunger that she set up. Her contacts here clearly helped. Everyone from Amazon to Barnes & Noble is on board. The idea is you buy a bag – lots of different bags – and the money goes to paying for food for children in Africa (there are a few different countries being supported), and in the case of Barnes & Noble, also books. The FEED bag above is $25 and buys 3 lunches and 3 books. If you got a bunch for all your family it could actually add up!
Leave it to Todd Oldham to come up with the best kid’s Christmas present. I’m getting Kid Made Modern for my daughter and I can’t wait to make the mobile with her!
Cool glass from Qubus via Merchant No. 4. Nice little Chrissie present?
OK – I know I’m doing a lot on art right now. My husband and I give each other art for Christmas so I’m doing a bit of research. Although we’ve got 3 things that need to be framed right now so maybe we’ll hold off. I still like doing the research though. Check out this new online gallery – a supermarket for art lovers! They focus on prints – hence the name Print Society. I like Robert Hanson’s work above. And the work of Rochefort below.
I had grand plans to do a gift guide – it’s that time of year and all but I’m just not organised enough to pull a whole list together. So I will post bits and bobs and tag them all ‘gift’ so you can search and make it yourself! I love these little books on the arctic by Jackie Peppermint (is that her real name?) They’re $12 and this is the 2nd edition.
