I’ve posted previously about my love of hand-lettering. Birthdays are always an excuse to exercise calligraphic muscles; not to mention the everyday doodling that helps me think during/get through a long meeting. But it’s always good to see someone who has the real skills. A little reminder about why I don’t do this for a living. Ben Johnston: my hat is off to you!

The Line tells us the story of fashion editor and stylist Laura Ferrara’s weekend home in the Hudson River Valley. There’s are a lot of gems, but I’m particularly enamored with this wide plank reclaimed flooring.

Milan’s Dimore Studio is worth following. Their melange of chinoiserie, Scandinavian classics, contemporary lighting and opium den hues are vibing oh so well in these Milanese and Parisian interiors.

Cheers To Collaboration: Hats Off To Søren Rose x Still Life

fab:

Turn down the very quiet Harrison Street in New York City’s scenic and serene TriBeCa hood, and you’ll find Søren Rose. The work that the otherwise-Copenhagen-based design studio produces reflects its Manhattan surroundings—brimming with modern elegance tempered by a healthy dose of utilitarian chic and a dash of edginess.

Known for its statement-making bespoke furniture and interiors, Søren’s wonderful workshop is built around a team of experts in architecture, product design, and manufacturing. Their latest and greatest must-have, though, isn’t exactly what one could call home décor. In fact, it’s a line of hats—a collaboration with NYC hat maker Still Life.

I’m assuming this key by E.Smith is decorative (the leather would get scratched in the keyhole, right?)… but I’m a fan regardless.

Every new year, Design Within Reach has a Champagne Chair Competition, asking designers to make miniature chairs out of the materials on a champagne bottle. Cute little idea! And many of the submissions this year were really lovely. We at Soren Rose Studio learned about it too late this time ‘round, but will definitely participate next year.
