March 25, 2022 – Carry a piece of the Met wherever you go with this new collaboration from the celebrated museum and cool-kid phone case brand Casetify. In addition to phone cases for Android and Apple users, the collection spans AirPod cases, MagSafe phone wallets, and wireless chargers with curated artworks from the likes of Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, Hiroshige and Katsushika.
March 25, 2022 – Last month, SIDIA teamed up with Abigail Campbell of Abigail Bell Vintage to curate an exclusive capsule of vintage vases, catchalls, and homeware objects inspired by Palm Springs in the 1970’s. While we think all the objects in this nostalgic collection are a worthy pick-up, we’re particularly drawn to the way this orange Venezuelan Murano glass ashtray catches the light.
March 29, 2022 – For foodies who like it hot, Fishwife’s best-selling Smoked Atlantic Salmon gets a spicy remix with the help of to Fly By Jing’s fan-favorite Sichuan Chili Crisp. Made with family-farmed, sustainably-sourced Arctic Smoked Salmon that’s been brined in extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, organic garlic salt, brown sugar, and spicy Sichuan chili crisp, the flavor that results is a uniquely spicy, tingly, and deeply umami experience.
March 29, 2022 – In an effort to support Ukrainian artisans during this difficult time, the Nopo has partnered with the Ukrainian-based GUNIA Project. With help from the brand collective, the Nopo will be selling goods from a cohort of over 30 Ukrainian artisans, with 100% of all sales made from this pop up directed to The GUNIA Project and Ukraine. As a charitable bonus, The Nopo is waiving all of their fees on these special wares, in addition to covering payment processing fees for The GUNIA Project.
March 30, 2022 – Areaware’s new wire baskets are the perfect home for any stray fruits and veggies you’ve got around your kitchen. Available in a a green and red duo, as well as a larger single bowl in black or smaller one in yellow, we think the complete set would make a lovely storage addition to your coffee table, bookshelves, or maybe even a nice Mother’s Day gift for the stylish mom who loves to stay organized.
March 30, 2022 – If you’ve been looking for the perfect rain jacket to take on April showers, look no further than Barbour’s newest jackets. In their latest collaboration with British luxury interiors brand, House of Hackney, Barbour’s classic outerwear and apparel gets a graphic makeover with the help of bespoke prints in both bold and muted colorways. Specifically, we like that this deceptively versatile leopard print waxed jacket is the perfect layering piece to stay warm and dry without sacrificing style.
March 30, 2022 – Anybody who wants to add some Parisian flair to their space should head to A.P.C, where the French fashion label released a new line of splurge-worthy quilts this week. Inspired by the abstract and experimental, Andean-derived work of Anni and Josef Albers, every item is hand-assembled in India by specialized artisans who used cotton and wool patchwork techniques to create geometric shapes and texture in each one-of-a-kind quilt.
March 31, 2022 – Here’s a team-up we like: This collab from Lichen and Warby Parker is perfect if you’re always asking yourself “Where did I put my glasses?” Inspired by egg crates and designed in an eye-catching shade of atomic blue, this very tactile silicone rubber eyewear tray (finally) offers a fun and quirky storage solution to misplaced specs and keys.
March 31, 2022 – Ruby water’s newest sparkling hibiscus beverages are the perfect thirst quenchers to take along on all your upcoming park hang-outs and beach days. Available in non-artificial and naturally sweet flavors like Unsweetened Sparkling Hibiscus, Hibiscus Blood Orange, and Concord Grape, Ruby drinkers can also enjoy the packaging’s futuristic design, which includes sci-fi-inspired illustrations by contemporary artist and musician Robert Beatty.
April 1, 2022 – In case you thought the checkerboard trend was over, we’re here to report otherwise. For their newest spring collection, Mackenzie-Childs reimagined their charming dinnerware, entertaining staples, glassware, and decor in an ice-y silver-blue checker print that makes a statement without being too loud. For those that prefer their tea piping hot, we recommend scoping up this functional-yet-stylish kettle.
April 1, 2022 – Last week, Lunya announced a limited-edition collection of enviable loungewear in collaboration with Atlanta-based artist, Kristen Giorgi. Designed to encapsulate “The Art of Rest,” each piece in the line—like this beautifully abstract washable silk pajama set—is reimagined with Kristen’s inspired work to bring art into your home through loungewear.
April 1, 2022 – For the first installment of their new Tastemakers series, the lighting experts at Mitzi have partnered with artist and photographer Dabito on a collection of 12 modern, boho-inspired pieces, ranging from chandeliers and sconces to floor and table lamps—like this curvaceous statement light fixture with a visually interesting base that doubles as an unexpected art piece.
April 1, 2022 – If crisp, linen sheets for spring and summer sound like a dream, we recommend perusing Kotn’s newly launched line of bedding in the ultra-breezy material. Blended with the brand’s Egyptian cotton for a unique softness and breathability, these responsibly-made linen sheets are grown in soil enriched by the the Nile river in a virtually waste-free, eco-friendly process (so you can sleep extra-easy).
April 5, 2022 – Earlier this week Our Place released its best selling (and Clever reader-favorite!) Always Pan in an “heirloom quality” enameled cast-iron. Multifunctional, oven-safe, and available in all of the brand’s beloved colors (including Steam, Spice, Char, Sage, Lavender, and Blue Salt), this remix of your favorite pan is perfect for any dish you want to start on the stove and end in the oven—like a lovely roast, breakfast scramble, or even a delicious dutch pancake.
April 5, 2022 – If you’re looking to treat yourself or someone special this month, we recommend checking out the new spring homewares from MATCHESFASHION. With exciting pieces from featured designers like Tina Vaia, Sensi Studio, and Ancient Greek Sandals, there’s lots you’ll want to add to your virtual shopping cart. This dish from the Helle Mardahl x ELHANATI collaboration is a particular standout. It was designed in Copenhagen, handblown, and it’s finished with 24K gold-plated bronze for an extra luxe touch.
April 6, 2022 – On Wednesday, Mango Home arrived in the US with an endearing collection of embroidered and printed textile products for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room, and more. This green gingham tablecloth should help you create the cottagecore-inspired tablescape of your dreams—just be sure you don’t forget the matching napkins and maybe a knitted placemat or two.
