Current Obsessions: Simplicity Ahead

Issue 13 · India Song · April 5, 2014

We've been off exploring the subcontinent all week, checking out where Madonna Shops in Mumbai and creating our own Gandhi-Inspired Bedroom and Turmeric Dyed Tablecloth. Next, we'll be exploring approachable minimalism: think simple (plus warm and livable). Meanwhile, for your weekend amusement, here are a few things we're loving.

Circular Side Table | Remodelista

Above: Asked for his favorite find from the recent Architectural Digest Home Show in NYC, architect Basil Walter singled out this powder-coated circular side table by Eric Trine. Like the looks of its companion chair? See our post Woven Leather Chairs with a West Coast Edge.

Pippa Small | Remodelista

Above: Sarah and Francesca just got word that London-based jewelry designer Pippa Small is hosting a pop up in New York at LF8 in the East Village from April 5-12. Small, who is also an anthropologist, will be showing her ethically sourced gold from Bolivia, as well as collections made in collaboration with the Mapuche Indians of Chile and the Turquoise Mountain charity in Afghanistan.

Peg Lamp | Remodelista

We're planning our summer getaways with this guide to the Twenty Best Beach Hotels via Sunset Magazine.

Wilshire End Table from VVoods | Remodelista

Above: Introducing Amenity Home's younger, more utilitarian sister, VVoods. Like its sibling, VVoods is founded on the principle that everything should be made locally, sustainably, and carefully. These end tables are from the line's new Wilshire collection. 

Taj Mahal | Remodelista

Above: To cap off our India week, our longtime operations team member Himanshu Kharabe in Pune, India, shared photos of his family's trip to the Taj Mahal. We hope to join them on their next visit.
