  • Design for a crucial cause: @DesignforATL, a fundraiser in support of the families of the Atlanta victims and the AAPI community, by the folks behind Tantuvi and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, among others. Today and tomorrow are the last days to donate and enter the raffle; head to @DesignforATL and see the captions on individual objects for how to enter.
  • To be filed under Stylish Reuse: Skagerak’s new/old Reclassic offerings, iconic, “pre-loved” wooden pieces for indoors or out, carefully restored and available online.
  • New England-based Elephant Ceramics is launching a new shop update tomorrow at 10 a.m. EST for a 24-hour sale; head here to see.
  • We like this Swedish Street Moves initiative, in which unused parking spaces are transformed into hangout spots, outdoor gyms, and urban gardens—all inspired by the city planning idea that everything you need should be within 15 minutes, no car needed.
  • “I’m loving Chinatown Pretty, which documents the retirement-chic fashion of the elderly Asian set,” writes Fan. “My grandmother lived in San Francisco’s Chinatown for decades, and I’m 100 percent sure she would have been in these pages were she still around.”
  • A peek inside a tiny + clever en suite retreat in Paris.
  • 10 times we spotted an Ikea classic in disguise.
  • Raised garden beds are a kitchen gardener’s secret weapon: Here’s everything you need to know.
  • Plus, enter to win an outdoor spruce-up via Bob Vila’s Greenest Lawn Giveaway, now through March 31st.
