Current Obsessions: Into Summer

May 26, 2018

Here’s how and where we’re kicking off summer, this first long weekend of the season. (Plus: the last days to enter our remodeling giveaway and the launch of the 2018 Considered Design Awards.) Here’s your beach reading.

  • We’ve been revisiting the work of Janaki Larsen, a Canadian ceramic artist with a cult following (and cofounder of Le Marche St. George in Vancouver). Follow along on Instagram. (And, Larsen is planning a 12-day summer workshop in Puglia. Interested? Get the details here.)
  • Our latest camp furniture discovery? Francesca and Margot spotted a French line of completely collapsible and portable chairs, tables, and cots at ICFF this week; see Helinox for more.
  • Currently admiring London-based Pinch Studio‘s new bedroom collection. (We particularly like the Moreau Bed and Elan Armoire.)
  • Headed to San Francisco? Meredith’s newest restaurant pick is Wako.
  • Or London? Sign up for one of Rita Konig’s “Complete House” workshops in June. (N.B.: Tea and cake are included.)

  • New from Notary Ceramics: linens (with raw edges).
  • Textile outfit Zak & Fox has a new showroom on Park Avenue South in New York; stop by.
  • Looking forward to digging into Volume III of Permanent Collection’s Works on Paper journal.
  • Six zero-waste Instagrammers to follow.
  • And, Margot’s latest Instagram find: Brooklyn artist @argheo. “His studio shots look straight out of Gertrude Stein’s Paris,” she says.
  • Ten ideas for tiny courtyards.
  • Appliances: time to repair or replace?
  • Fan’s go-to beach bag for the coming summer.
