This weekend we’re wrapping up our Flemish (and Dutch) Design issue and headed into Small-Space Remodels week. In the meantime, here’s what we’re up to, eyeing, and buying.
- The Remodelista Considered Design Awards are officially open—to amateurs and architects, homeowners and renters, renovators and DIYers alike. Read more here, then enter. (Have a garden or organization project to submit? See all the categories on Gardenista and The Organized Home.)
- After writing about Abbatte’s Spanish weavings, Margot has been checking out Evangeline, a new Maine company specializing in classic blankets. Her pick? The made-in-Maine cotton pinstripe blankets.
- We’re eager to stop into Garde’s new, second location, opening June 16 in a 1921 barn in Summerland, California. (There’s also a one-bedroom rental, should you want to stay the night. Stay tuned.)
- Contributor Stacey let us know about the LA pop-up of Stockholm-based Hem at the Poketo Project Space at ROW DTLA, now through June 30.
- Margot is hoping to check out a show of tiny paper sculptures of everyday objects by artist Lydia Ricci of From Scraps, who describes what she does as making “very small objects that hold distinct memories.” It’s at Morris Adjmi Architects in TriBeCa.
- Now at ABC Carpet & Home: a new collection of handcrafted rugs by Abraham & Thakore, as part of Obeetee‘s series celebrating Indian makers and design.
- Upcoming from Ikea: a small-living line inspired by space travel.
- Annie is stopping into the Jono Pandolfi pop-up shop in her neighborhood, today at 242 W. 26th St. in Chelsea, NYC, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
