inmod

Eye candy is a lot more fun when it’s within reach. inmod isn’t about wiping the drool off your face and having to walk away. No need to sell your firstborn. Don’t have to go in debt. You just have to shop savvy. Sort the items on inmod by price so you can view them according to your budget. I scrubbed their entire site (I’ve got no life, dude!) and found some great items that are both affordable and sexy.
The Meringue lights (above) are sweet finds at $84.99 for the hanging lamp (there’s also a table lamp model), and $134.99 for the floor model. The Modular room divider, on the other hand, is the big exception here. It has a hefty pricetag, but it sure is built to please with it’s towering illuminated self. It’s the Heidi Klum of room dividers. Don’t you think it has this whole Sci-fi Fifth Element thing goin’ on? I totally dig it although I have no clue what I’d do with it in my so-not-a-swank-loft space.

Modular room divider $1,499.99 (drool, drool)

Would you like some more candy, little design addicts?

Sophisticate Chair $114.99 (In White or Black) – Great legs, darling!

Perf Boxes, $299 set of 2 (Part of the permanent collect at the San Fran MoMA)
PERFect for me!

risd|works

RISD (pronouced “riz-dee” or Rhode Island School of Design) has been around for 125 years refining artists and designers, stretching their imaginations, launching them into the world with the ability to create. Many RISD grads have produced products that we all benefit from and enjoy today. You can purchase items online from RISD at risd|works, which features an annual collection of works by RISD alumni and faculty. Each item features a bio of the artist, which I really like, and when they attended RISD. They offer a variety of items from contemporary to folk, at affordable prices. The fun blocks above, “Blockheads”, are from RISD grad Jason Amendolara, $17 for the set. If you’re in the Providence area, you can also visit their storefront, open only on Sundays from 11-5 p.m.

To me, owning something purchased directly from it’s maker, so to speak, gives the item a feeling of being sacred. I cherish it for years to come. risd|works is perfect for those of us that don’t want everything we own to be stamped, “Made in China”. Here’s an aluminum kitchen timer that I like for only $15 from Jozeph Forakis, Industrial Designer.

The “Meep” pendant light with a die-cut birch veneer is as unique as it is beautiful for $260 by James Dieter, Industrial designer.
For $40, you can enjoy a beautiful glazed stoneware bowl from artist/designer Dwo Wen Chen.

Plank

Meet Mr. Blue yoga mat. How dull. Not exactly “om” inspiring.

Meet Ms. Doreen Hing, exercise addict and founder/designer
of Plank, an upscale line of yoga accessories. Not dull. Very “om” inspiring.

Based in Boston (from Britain surprise, surprise), this designer has set out to infuse a bit of her tongue-in-cheek humor and transcendental thinking into revving up ubiquitous purple + blue mats seen in studios today. Determined to offer hip
yoga accessories versus the “hippie, bohemian” ones commonly found, Plank mats are stylish and witty. Yoga not your thing? You can also use the mats for pilates and general stretching too. Available at Fred Segal, Paul Smith, Design Within Reach, and for the locals, Lekker Home. Purchase them online too, mats range between $60-125.

Plank is not only
putting Boston on the map, but on the mat, too.
