Current Obsessions: Lucky Streak


Current Obsessions: Lucky Streak

March 17, 2018

Green has been the focus of our Living Color issue this week (“darkest green functions like a neutral—it’s a black for people who don’t want black—and, in its favor, it hasn’t gained the cult status of blue,” Meredith writes in 10 Favorite, Time-Tested Dark Green Kitchens). As the week wraps up we’re taking one last look at the Emerald Isle, plus a can’t-miss sale, a long-awaited service from Ikea, and a couple of cookbooks. Here’s a look.

in honor of st. patrick&#8\2\17;s day, we&#8\2\17;re revisiting ard bia 12
Above: In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re revisiting Ard Bia, serving foraged Irish-inflected dishes alongside tarnished silver and eclectic glassware on Claddagh Bay in Galway, Ireland. (Photograph from Irish Eclecticism at Ard Bia in Galway, our original look at the restaurant; see It Takes a Village: An Eclectic Irish Restaurant in Galway Gets a Refresh for the updated interiors.)
  • Now at Henrybuilt‘s Mill Valley, California, showroom: “Living with Handmade Japanese Craft” featuring Analogue Life‘s Japanese ceramics, utensils, and other goods (its first West Coast exhibition). It runs March 22 to 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 356 Miller Ave. (All pieces are available for sale.)
  • Going on this weekend and next, also in the Bay Area: Rough Linen‘s Oddities Sale, with samples, seconds, and one-offs up to 70 percent off. Sunday, March 18, and Sunday, March 25, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Rough Linen showroom, 1925 Francisco Blvd East, Unit #12, San Rafael, California. (And read up on their tips for a sumptuous bedroom here.)
  • Margot is looking forward to artist Maira Kalman’s Cake, a cookbook, now available for pre-order.
  • Ikea assembly no more: The company is now rolling out its TaskRabbit assembly services online (where Taskers are available) and at stores in San Francisco and New York, with at least five more cities throughout the year. (Prices for assembly start at $36.)
  • And 3-D printed homes (built in 48 hours).
  • And another cookbook we’re noting: Meredith let us know about Occasions To Gather (which she recently previewed its the launch at Sunset magazine HQ). All proceeds from the book go to Feeding America.
  • In Paris? Now through March 31, Merci is selling goods from its latest exhibitions at Merci Déballe (“Merci Unpacked”).
  • Stay in an Irish farmhouse, castle, or lighthouse: Annie is perusing these historic landmarked properties, all transformed from ruin, all available for rent.
