Not your standard etsy find, that’s for sure… As a featured seller on the etsy homepage over the weekend, it was easy to spot INV/ALT.
INV/ALT design is a Denver-based product design and ceramic production studio owned by the talented Angela Schwab. At INV/ALT, you’ll spot snap cups, flipbooks, and cupcake stands that merge two found objects to create something new: a single vintage saucer atop a severed wine glass stem creates the perfect tea party display. A snippet from her bio sums up the studio name and vision quite nicely, “INV/ALT focuses on INVention of new forms and ALTeration of existing objects in order to enhance the way people can use and interact with everyday functional objects.”
Psst: You can tour her studio here.

Lovely graphical prints, displaying an almost disaplined chaos of beauty, from etsy seller Creo Ingero. Amazing color combos and patterns, joyous and some, explosive, all very affordable. So many good finds on etsy… It just keeps getting better all the time.
Suzanna at Binth sent over two of their latest limited edition prints last week, the inks are green and Binth brown (black-brown). The first is “Fed on Apples” and the second, “Awaiting Spring“, which is exactly how I’ve been feeling lately… Patiently awaiting! This is a fantastic print, I like how the girl is looking at us, almost like we had crept up behind her and snapped her picture. We intruded her knitting space, there in the field, with her little pup. Excellect capture of emotions in a screenprint, I think.
Sponsored by the Viking Range Corporation and designed by Barry Rice with his partner in business and life, Ted Allen (from Queer Eye). With special thanks to Bottega del Vino Crystal, David Beahm Design, Global Table, Interface FLOR, Shimmerscreen, and Wud Furniture. Love the upscale, contemporary decor of their Dining By Design tabletop. The furniture and lighting are to die for for. Drool!
This is Corey Springer (founder of Brooklyn-based Wud Furniture) and Keren Gorni, who not only manages his Wud marketing and PR, but she is engaged to marry Corey in 3 short weeks. They’ve been together since they were teenagers – how cute is that?!?
