Just took a break and checked out little miss sponge today for my daily read (love her new site don’t you?), and she mentioned ID Chicago so I had to check them out. Yowser! Great site, thanks to Grace, of course! I just purchased the Maharam Matching Game, it’s lovely… especially for my husband and I because we like to play silly games when our friends come over, and this will not only be a good alternative to poker, but a fun and very fashionable display piece (despite that it’s in a cardboard box, the top looks quite nice). Based on the Maharam textile collection, this memory game features illustrated renditions of textiles designed by Hella Jorgerius (love her!), Paul Smith, Charles and Ray Eames, Gio Ponti, and Alexander Girard (another fave of mine). They’re printed on fine quality heavy card stock and the game includes two sets of 36 cards.
TIP: If you’re not into fun and games, maybe you can simply frame these cards. Purchase a unique frame with multiple windows for photos and place your favorite Maharam images inside instead of photos.
