Sale alert! Surfing bluefly last night, I spotted a pillow from Hable Construction for under $50. I clicked on it, and it was rather ugly so I didn’t think it was blogworthy enough to share with decor8 readers. However, a new day brought new hope.
My blogmate Brent (as I’m starting to call him a blogmate since he’s amazing), just sent me an email about bluefly adding 3 fab pillows to their site, and I had to post them asap because they’re quite cute. I’m not into pink or lilac, but you may adore them. I think the orange one is sweet.
The Hable Construction bright orange felted wool stripe 14×14 pillow is $59.99, marked down from $170, the pink felted wool stripe 14×14 pillow is $67.99 (was $170), and the lilac and ivory felted wool appliqu? 20 X 20 pillow is $79.99 (was $240). Killer deals. These will sell out fast, so if you like them, activate those links asap and grab your plastic pronto! I tell you one thing for certain, if bluefly adds any Hable pillows in blue or green, I’m all over it!
Finally, a Hable pillow you can afford!

Have you heard that Angela Adams bedding is now being offered exclusively at Marshall Fields? Her bedding, bath and decorative accessories line kicked off on Jan. 15th, and it’s worth investigating. For now, there seems to be only one pattern, “Lulu”, but I’m sure more will follow.
Thanks Brent, a loyal decor8 reader in Minneapolis (aka our roving style reporter), for letting us know about Ms. Adams line. Brent also mentioned that out in Minneapolis, Lulu is on sale at Marshall Fields for 25% off and there is a coupon for an additional $25 off a purchase of $100 or more. That translates into the Lulu duvet costing an affordable $125!
Shop online for Angela Adams bedding. Her bath and decorative accessories should be available on fields.com soon!
And you thought the rugs were nice…

alphab?tique, located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, was created in 2000 as an idea studio meant to inspire and add beauty; a place of “ah” for those obsessed with paper products (like me). Since many paper designers started to print their designs onto pillows, wall hangings, and ceramics, alphab?tique soon started carrying items for the home. They carry Neisha Crosland’s wallcoverings and silk pillows, items from Designers Guild, Pancake + Franks cards, Hable Construction’s pillows and tote bags, and Lotta Jansdotter’s wall hangings, ceramics and textiles. alphab?tique offers online shopping, too. However, their retail space offers a much more extensive array of products, so the next time you’re in the windy city, allow the breeze to carry you over to all that is beautiful in alphab?tique.
Now I know my alphab?tique, this time won’t you shop with me…

Visiting Germany, I always wondered where my relatives kept their shoes since their entryways were always uber clean. No shoes scattered about or arranged on shelves along the floor. In fact, no shoes anywhere. Ah….but I was wrong. They were hiding.
IKEA offers a clever storage solution for shoes that want to play hide and seek. Before, we could never purchase these in the states, but I guess word broke out that Americans aren’t total slobs and also enjoy clutter-free spaces. I checked out IKEA yesterday in the Stoughton, MA store and I have to admit that these storage units were flying out of there to nest little shoes all over.
They had three styles in stock, my two favorites being the SANDES (available in beech or birch veneer, two sizes offered, $129.99) and the TRONES, a 3 pack plastic bin storage system for $39.99 (for budget conscious shoppers). The TRONES holds 6 pairs of shoes and the SANDES holds 12 pairs. SANDES was very sturdy and well made, and I liked how it looked – very sleek. The TRONES was also fine, but not really my style for an entryway, I’d be more inclined to put it in my walk-in closet. SANDES was also slimmer (depth) so it seemed to lay almost flush against the wall. The TRONES was a bit thicker.
Good news for America. No more stinky shoes thrown all over your entry floor. Clutter problem solved. Big high five.
