Cat Cocoon [Plush Pod]

Look what the cat dragged in…Designers finally caught on that cats really are little people in fur coats and deserve posh living quarters, too. Although, I’m quite sure the driving motivation was making money on people with good taste.

Gone are the days when your only options are towering carpet poles and plaid cat beds. Check out this Cat Cocoon from Plush Pod. Taking 83 laser-cut double wall corrugated cardboard shapes, it’s then sculpted into a heavy and durable pod that stays put. Kitty can scratch it, hide inside, and sleep in stylish quarters that will blend in nicely with the design of your room. It’s a bit expensive at $279, but shipping is free and Plush Pod promises delivery within 1-2 weeks.

Let the cat out of the bag…opt for a cocoon instead.

Zinc Details

From A to Zinc, this store has you covered. Zinc Details is one those places that you’ll want to move into. Owners, Vasilios and Wendy Kiniris, created a place that’s as visually stimulating as it is upbeat. When you’re there, you can see why Knoll selected them as its designated “Knoll Space” retailer in Northern California. Their fresh collection of national and international items are collected from all over the world, from Japan to Scandinavia. Now you can collect them too and create a Zinc Details home of your own.

Refab:clinc is a fun place to browse for “happy vintage modern furnishings” that cover the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. They feature a small inventory of items that they’ll most likely never feature again, so if you like something you see, grab it quick. If you’re looking for something that they don’t carry, email them, and they’ll let you know if they find it. I want the hanging light and the bee hive style end table in this photo, but surprise! It’s already gone! See what I mean…you have to act fast.

Slow but Steady + NY Int’l Gift Show

I know, I know… I was a little quiet today. Truth is, I spent the day writing a press release for a client and sending it to all of my media contacts. What a chore! I didn’t realize how extensive my list had grown; but it seems everyone at Domino, Lucky, etc. are still employed because the emails haven’t bounced yet. :) Then again, if I worked at Domino or Lucky, I’d never quit my job either. I have to call them all tomorrow to make sure they read it. Fun!

In addition to the press stuff, I had to edit content and upload new pages for a website I’m working on. While working on that, my contract arrived from my editor which alerted me to the fact that I have a 1,000 word article due ASAP. That will be on the plate for tomorrow, January 25th. I quit corporate america last October, spent a month in Germany and Zurich, and when I got back, I haven’t stopped running.

With all that said, I’ll see you again tomorrow (1/25) with a few fresh finds and then I’ll be signing off again to sink into developing my article. Also have to paint the addition to our home tomorrow afternoon into the evening after the contractors leave. What a mess my space is in! But, not to worry, I’ll still be posting everyday, but I doubt I’ll be posting more than 2-4x a day, at least this week.

Next Sunday and Monday is the NY International Gift Show, I can’t wait as it’s my first year to attend, so I’ll have all kinds of goodies to post about next week…. I can’t wait to see the new Lotta Jansdotter and Hable Construction goodies at the show. Have you ever been to the NY Int’l gift show? Any comments?

Cheers, all! :)
