Architectural, clean, and modern—this is the work of designer Sandro Lopez, who believes in the importance of process during the creative journey. As he says: “To faithfully preserve the purity of a vision, the responsibility of the designer needs to encompass the entirety of the journey.”

Lopez recently exhibited a new collection at the London Design Festival. Isn’t the overhead view of his Parallax coffee table (below) amazing?

Jim Darling

There’s something so exciting and romantic about the act of traveling, especially when you’re lucky enough to snag the window seat. This could possibly explain why I am so in love with these paintings by artist Jim Darling. Darling treats airplane windows as the perfect portal with which to view the world. So, whether it’s the skyscrapers of New York City or the green patchwork of the midwest, these works inspire thoughts of travel and adventure.

Jewelry by Uhuru

Honestly, how cool is this jewelry from Uhuru? These pieces take inspiration from the design elements of Uhuru’s furniture collections, but translate them into a wearable form. The collection includes a variety of one-of-a-kind rings and necklaces made of natural wood, accented with precious metals. And each is produced in New York City using the same means of production as Uhuru’s furniture. I especially love the pieces that feature knots and holes in the wood, giving the jewelry an organic yet architectural and modern feel.

Kati von Lehman

The thing that I love most about ceramics is that they are all about the details, like these sophisticated beauties from Kati von Lehman. Her path started in 2011 when she decided to work from home while taking care of her daughter. She made clothing, furniture, even toys, all of which led to her need to “design and make everything we use in a way that would suit our lifestyle and also be beautiful.” Her pieces are all about functionality and efficiency, while also being perfect for small spaces with their stackability and nesting quality. The ceramics are meant to be used on a daily basis—and I’m happy to do my part and would find every excuse to use these gray kitchen bowls every day.

Rinn Textiles by Erin Gilkes

Do you ever find something that you don’t know what to do with it or where to put it, but you just know you want to possess it? That is exactly how I feel about these pieces from Rinn Textiles by Erin Gilkes. The table tapestries are made of both wool and linen and totally handmade in her Hamilton, Ontario, studio. Each piece is totally one-of-a-kind, so the hardest part, really, is picking a favorite.
