Just when we thought Seattle-based clothing shop Totokaelo couldn't get any better, it does. Last week, owner Jill Wenger launched Art-Object, an online shop offering pieces from some of our favorite up-and-coming furniture designers and artists.

From Iacoli & McAllister to Stan Bitters to Mato Creative to Maison Martin Margiela, Totokaelo's new venture does not disappoint. View the objects online at Art-Object and in person at their new, larger location at 1523 10th Avenue in Capitol Hill, Seattle.
