Current Obsessions: Welcoming 2020

January 11, 2020
mjolk stone house 33
Above: Top post of the week, a visit to Mjolk founders Juli and John Baker’s antique stone farmhouse in the countryside north of Lake Ontario.

Here’s what’s on our radar:

  • Trying to stick to your New Year’s tidying resolution? Consider Japanese designer Tomoyoshi Okuda’s 12-piece Satto Swappable Cleaning Set.
  • Yet another reason to visit Paris: the spectacular new Japanese concept shop Ogata.
  • Mark your calendars: Opening February 29th at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City, an Eileen Gray exhibit in collaboration with Paris’s Centre Pompidou.
  • Take a look at the most extravagant food storage/refrigeration situation we’ve ever seen, in an Axel Vervoordt-designed house in LA (guess the inhabitants).
  • On Thursday, January 23th, NYC bookshop McNally-Jackson hosts “Extraordinary: Everyday Design Objects and Practices: Louise Harpman, Caroline Weaver, Maira Kalman, and Alex Kalman,” featuring “discussion, demonstrations, and digressions.”
  • On Saturday, January 11th, from 4 to 7 pm, Erica Tanov is hosting an opening for artists Dharma Maccoll, Jessica Abbott Williams, and Emily Paine at her DTLA shop. (And her annual studio sale at her Berkeley shop takes place on January 17th and 18th.)
  • Mark your calendars: Shoppe Object is back for another housewares show in NYC featuring more than 500 exhibitors; go to Shoppe Object for info.
  • Over on Gardenista, see Kier’s New Year’s Resolutions for the Gardener.
  • And on the Organized Home, Fan shares 10 Things Nobody Tells You About the KonMari Method of Decluttering.
