Current Obsessions: Hammock Bound

Issue 79 · Made in America · July 6, 2013

It's official. We're having a lazy weekend post July 4th pottering around the garden, arming ourselves with a good book, a great cocktail (see below) and spending as much time as possible horizontal, preferably in the hammock. Here's what else is going on:

Ace Hotel Palm Springs Hammock

  Esme Pillow Les Indiennes

  • We're featuring summery bedrooms next week and Julie has her eye on the indigo printed Esme Pillow from Les Indiennes.
  • Meredith is checking out the summer offerings at Tricia Foley's New General Store.

Margaret Howell Reissue of Type 75 Anglepoise Lamp, Remodelista

  • Alexa is considering the Type 75 Anglepoise Lamp (as a birthday gift selfie or suggestion), but she can't work out the difference between Margaret Howell's reissue and the standard Type 75, save for the price difference. Any help from readers?

Dosa Joshua Tree Map

  • When next in LA, Sarah's planning on checking out Dosa's Exploring Joshua Tree art installation and shop at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.
  • We've been going through a bit of a heatwave here on the West Coast and Alexa's got the skinny on how to Survive in the Desert.
  • Hotel-sezz

  • Looking for a bit of European glitz this summer? Check into the Hotel Sezz in Saint Tropez.
  • Jet-setting off somewhere? Check out these tips for beating jet lag.
  • Thomas Keller, pre the French Laundry.

raspberry sparkler

  • It might be past the fourth but we are still in the mood for this Raspberry Sparkler with its mix of raspberries, mint, and honey, a little lime, gin, and a dash of vinho verde.
  • Did you like the designers we featured this past week in our Made in America postings? Enter them in Martha Stewart's American Made awards. (You can also nominate yourself.)
