Amid the news and finds that caught our focus this 7 days:
- To celebrate the momentousness of having a lady in the White Home, upstate store Sunny’s Pop is providing 10 p.c off this weekend. Just use code VPHARRIS.
- The 2020 Design and style of the 12 months award goes to the Teeter Totter Wall, a series of brilliant pink seesaws at the U.S./Mexico border as a reminder that, as one of the designers states, “we don’t need to have to develop walls, we want to create bridges.”
- We like Openweave, the newest wallpaper pattern by Massachusetts-primarily based Fayce Textiles, “inspired by the art and craft of material and basket weaving” and available in bone, charcoal/normal, or blush/ochre. (For far more on Fayce, see Markings and Line Do the job: Hand-Drawn Wallpaper from a New England Studio.)
- Admirer is watching Faux It’s a City on Netflix: “The matter of the documentary is Fran Lebowitz, but the star is definitely New York City,” she claims.
- Also on Fan’s radar: Craft: An American Heritage, a chronicle of “unsung artisans,” as The New York Situations states.
- Annie is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her pair of stackable ceramic tumblers from Portland, Maine-centered ceramicists Campfire Pottery for afternoon tea breaks. Campfire at this time has a minimal-edition assortment of tumbler shades, from ochre to slate to matte white, on offer you head right here to get before they promote out.
- Help you save the day for Erica Tanov’s a few-working day sale next weekend, with “up to 70 percent off earlier time scores, exceptional finds, and 1-of-a-kind samples.” It’s going on January 29-31 at 1827 Fourth Street in Berkeley, CA, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day—masks necessary, and far more facts below. (Not able to go in man or woman? Their wintertime sale is going on now on the net.)
- And since we’re all obsessed with Bernie’s mittens this week, a different motive to really like them: They’re upcycled, built from wool sweaters and lined with fleece manufactured from recycled plastic bottles. (Alas, their creator, Vermont-based mostly teacher Jen Ellis, states she’s fresh out of mittens—and to head to Etsy for one thing equally eco-pleasant and heat.)
