Meaning “clay” in Russian, Gleena is a ceramics studio based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Specializing in porcelain tableware, Gleena’s aesthetic is all about soft pastels, organic shapes, and “imagery inspired by childhood summers spent at grandma’s country house outside of St. Petersburg, Russia.” The pieces are practical for daily use, but are handmade and have lovely touches like double-dipped glazes so they feel a bit special, too.

Ever on the lookout for more decor to add to my new loft, Enhabiten came across my desk (read: screen) and I got really, really excited. Created by New Hampshire-based designer Liane Tyrrel, Enhabiten features gorgeous home goods, plus a few other great pieces like jewelry and accessories.

I’m especially drawn to the home textiles for their bohemian, casual vibes. Each piece is dyed in small batches with natural dyes, which are locally sourced. Many of the textiles are vintage, but given a new lease on life with Tyrrel’s silhouettes and applications. With so many gorgeous pieces, I don’t even know where to start!

Anthology Issue 19 Cover Even if the spring-like weather hasn’t quite arrived where you live yet … The spring issue of Anthology is coming soon! The subscription mailing is getting under way, and we’ll be shipping to stores soon, too.

The theme for Issue No. 19 is Inside/Outside—and I am especially crazy about this cover, which features the Miami home of event designer David Stark. There are plenty more shots of his interior in the pages of the new issue, along with other wonderful stories. This online preview includes just a sampling. As always, we hope you enjoy it!

I have a confession to make: Despite the plethora of weavings and woven wall art lately, I haven’t been able to commit to any one style or piece for my home. Well, that is until I recently discovered these pieces by Jujujust. Bright, bold, and three-dimensional, these weavings have my name written all over them. They are just so amazingly impactful, I can’t help myself.

Each piece is handmade by Judit Just, an artist residing in Asheville, North Carolina, but originally from Barcelona. Growing up, she first explored sewing and crafting in the footsteps of her mother, and even made clothes for her dolls. Then, after studying fashion design, Just craved the ability to make something with her hands and thus explored sculpture. These weavings are clearly an amazing marriage of her two disciplines in the best way possible!

In preparation for a future issue that focuses on prints and patterns, I’ve been on the hunt for products and interiors that use pattern in innovative ways. I came across this renovation project by Adrian Elizalde, a young architecture student based in Spain, and was instantly intrigued. Elizalde redesigned this pre-war Barcelona apartment to be simple, open, and spacious, but with a delightful twist: Throughout the home, Elizalde chose to reveal and highlight the building’s original joinery, and he used some of the home’s original floor tiles to create the look of colorful area rugs.

The effect is wonderful: Not only do the tiled “rugs” cleverly break up the open floor plan into discrete sections, they also bring echoes of warmth and tradition to the otherwise clean and modern space. I hope this ingenuity will inspire other designers to consider using tile in unexpected ways. I know I’ll be keeping this concept in mind for any flooring projects that come my way in the future.
