Of note this weekend:
- Save the date for a virtual spoon-carving workshop with Melanie Abrantes, November 7 from 1-3:30 p.m. PST (or on your own time via a recorded video link), hosted by Fruitsuper—soup recipe and wine pairing included. Sign up here.
- California-based Permanent Collection is doubling down on a commitment to sustainability—a mission we can get behind. (We also particularly like their glass honey dippers by London-based designer Max Frommeld, for stirring sweetness into a cup of tea.)
- Fan let us know about Ikea’s used-furniture buy-back program, an answer to the age-old question of what to do with Ikea cast-offs. Here’s hoping it makes its way to U.S. stores soon.
- Julie sent on news of NYC-based designer Colin King‘s collection for Beni Rugs, inspired by Marrakech, Tangier, and “the graphic interaction between light and architecture.”
- We’re longtime fans of the lime wash look—so our interest is piqued by this new, easy and eco-friendly lime wash paint.
- And Remodelista/Gardenista favorite Sprout Home in Brooklyn is closing up shop; stop by 59 Grand Street to pick up garden wares (50 percent off) and plants (15 percent off).
