Current Obsessions: In Praise of Craft

April 4, 2020
edward collinson kitchen island
Above: Our UK-based friend Edward Collinson emailed to say he’s now offering his handmade Broad kitchen workbench in black oak. NB: In the US, his work is available from LA shop Garde.
  • On the market: A John Pawson house in Notting Hill, designed in the 1990s for his own family and miraculously untouched. (And for a smaller dose of John Pawson, see his collection of home goods at March.)
  • Good Design, Good Purpose: Enter to Win Two Ethically Made Pillows from Goodee, one our favorite purveyors of home goods.
  • Currently coveting: Hans Wegner’s Wishbone Chair in a limited edition dark inky blue (courtesy of Ilse Crawford).
  • Fan discovered a genius DIY distancing mask via Juliana Sohn.
  • Margot is admiring a new wallpaper design called Kingdom from Northampton, MA-based Fayce Textiles. As owner Kim Rosen says, “It’s a celebration of all types of birds in the animal kingdom. Lately, birds have been the only other living beings (besides my wife 🙂 that I encounter daily, and now, more than ever, I appreciate their presence.”
  • Roman & Williams Guild in NYC is still open by appointment and for online purchases: “Our aim is to help support our network of small global artisans that sell at Guild,” the designers say. We especially like their glassware collection and their private label subtly hued enzyme-washed linens (table runners, tablecloths, napkins, placemats, pillow shams, and bed coverlets).
